Garage Renovations & Garage Conversions

Finishing your garage can be one of the quickest and most affordable ways to add living space to your home. Whether you’re looking to build a new garage or update your existing one, Cowart Construction can help you create the finished garage of your dreams.

New Garage Construction

Looking to build a two-story attached garage? Or a one and a half story detached garage? We take pride in our ability to stay up-to-date on the latest and most advanced Alabama garage construction trends.

Benefits of our environmentally-sustainable construction and green building practices are twofold. For one, they involve the use of energy-efficient products such as low-VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds). Through our green building practices you will also enjoy lower energy and water costs, longer-lasting buildings, and healthier, more productive spaces in which to live and work.

Garage to Apartment or Home Addition Conversion

Do you already have a garage? Our Alabama home remodeling specialists can help you revamp the structure with our premier garage conversion services.

A well-planned garage conversion can increase the square footage of your home. It can also amount to additional income with the creation of a garage apartment.

Here are some of the things we address in our garage conversion services:

  • Garage Doors: The biggest question related to most of our garage conversions involves the garage door. If you decide to remove it, we can help you come up with a seamless and effective way to fill the space.
  • Flooring: Typical garage flooring is made up of uninsulated concrete that often slopes toward the garage door or a floor drain. To even out the surface of your garage, we recommend you allow us to fill the bottom of the garage door opening with a curb that will keep water out and protect wall framing from moisture damage.
  • Heating and Cooling: Depending on whether or not the garage is attached to the house, we can extend the existing heating and cooling system into the converted space.
  • Wiring: Do you expect to increase the amount of electricity you use? If so, you may need to update the wiring in your garage to include at least one new 20-amp circuit.
  • Plumbing: While getting water supplied to the garage is simple, it could amount to a big headache if you can’t figure out a way to effectively drain water out and away from the space. If you are lucky enough to have a connecting laundry or utility room, we may be able to turn the space into a garage bathroom.
