Advantages of extending above your garage

There are many advantages of extending into the space above your connected garage. These advantages include:

  • Not using your outdoor space- in today’s property market, it is important to consider the needs and requirements of potential buyers. And while a bigger property is advantageous, so is a good size outdoor space. So if you want to add rooms or space to your home, consider building upwards, instead of getting rid of your valuable garden area.
  • Versatile room options- because an above garage extension is upstairs, there are a whole host of rooms that it could be turned into. A new bathroom, or bedroom, or even master suite could be installed. Or you could use the space for a home office, living room, entertainment room, or gym. The options are literally endless.
  • Value of your home- Adding an above garage extension to your home, could seriously increase the value of your property. Especially if you turn the space into an additional bedroom. After all, a four bed-roomed home will always be worth more than a three bed. And this could be a deciding factor when choosing which type of extension to go for.
