Your Local Garage Remodeling Northern VA Contractors

We Offer Garage Remodeling and Renovations

If you want to add square footage to your home without actually adding on, converting your garage to living space may be the answer. Whether you’re looking to expand your home’s current layout, connect a detached garage to the rest of your home, or remodel a detached garage into a media room, home office, or guest suite, we can help. At Foley, we’ve been remodeling Northern VA homes for over 30 years and we’ll put our experience and professionalism to work turning your garage into the space you’ve dreamed of.

The garage has evolved over the past couple decades, with more homeowners seeing the potential of this untapped resource. No longer seen as a storage area for tools, sporting equipment or even cars, garages offer families a great way to add the additional room they need without the expense of adding on.

Adding to Without Adding On

Our remodeling process will help you tailor your existing garage into a living area that beautifully complements your existing home and family’s lifestyle. Our design team will work with you to customize the space to perfectly fit you needs. If you want to create an in-law suite, we can do that. Have you always dreamed of a greenhouse or artist’s studio? We can do that, too.

The beauty of remodeling your garage is that you get to increase the square footage of your Northern VA home without the higher cost of building an addition onto it. No matter what your budget, you can create a room that is both functional and stylish. Before you decide on what direction your garage remodel will take, ask yourself:

  • Will the room have multiple functions or a single theme?
  • Will you find alternative places for things currently stored in your garage?
  • Will you make room for your vehicle in the remodel?

As some garages are quite large, homeowners sometimes choose to go with a multi-functional room, or split the garage into different “zones,” with each serving a distinct purpose. Some of the most popular remodels include one or a mix of the following:

  • Family Room or Den
  • Billiard Room or Game Room
  • Ensuite Guest Room
  • Media Room
  • Home Bar
  • Gym or Spa
  • Library
  • Arts and Crafts Studio
  • Writer’s Retreat

The Foley Remodeling Process

Over three decades of experience has taught us that when we communicate openly and work closely with a client, big dreams can turn into the reality of a space that meets everyone’s expectations. So we invite you to dream big!

Our entire team is committed to communication from the very start. From the initial in-home consultation to final completion, we discuss your goals, your remodel project’s scope, your previous experience with remodeling or the design/build model, and the level of involvement you and your family wish to maintain.

Our finely tuned process avoids helps homeowners avoid the sticker shock of change orders or construction delays. From day one, your budget is an integral part of the entire remodeling process. No guesswork – comprehensive financial planning from the beginning ensures a successful remodel every single time.

What to Expect with Your Northern VA Garage Remodel

No matter how you choose to remodel your garage, there are some standard procedures that you can think about and plan for before the actual remodel begins. The process typically includes the installation of insulation to keep those cold Northern VA winters at bay. Here are some additional common items:

  • Flooring options include stained concrete, wood flooring, tile, laminate, or carpeting
  • Lighting, including recessed
  • Plumbing and electricity, particularly if you want to add a bathroom or wet bar
  • Heating and cooling options
  • Sheetrock for walls and ceilings
  • Windows may be added and garage doors replaced or closed in
  • Paint throughout
  • Interior design, finishes and fixtures

Keep in mind that the cost to remodel your garage will vary depending on how you will use the new space. A new master suite with bath, small apartment, media room, or office – they’re all common garage remodeling projects with different cost variables. Whatever you choose, there’s no better time like the present to get started on the garage remodel you’ve always wanted.
