Modesto Garage Builders from people just like you.

arranged all the professionals to come to the house and repair everything needed from storm damage. He even did things here and there that" we asked him to do while at the house doing other things and he jumped right to it. Very professional and discloses everything up front so you are not expecting any unforeseen issues.

"I was very impressed with
as salesman. They were along my age so we communicated very well and that was one of" the reasons in addition to the rating I saw on Angie's list to go with them. I met with
(who is authorize to sale buildings for Alpine) a week prior and had a handshake on what I would receive in my building with the promise not to pay until the job was completed. Everything up to this point was going as I expected and even received a phone call from
(carpenter) the night before that rain was in the forecast for Tuesday so what would I like for him to do. We agreed not to work in the rain and to schedule for Wednesday build. On Wednesday morning he arrived on time, actually at the crack of dawn he was outside our home and ready to go. I was impressed with him being punctual and very friendly. However I wasn't exactly impressed with his truck which looked like it was about to fall apart or how his shirt was half in and half out but I thought this guy is in the Texas heat all day and I get it if he needs to be comfortable so i didn't blink an eye but this is important to why I'm so disappointed in what I received from Alpine.
was fast, fast and fast to get the job done. He arrived around 7 am and was done by 2pm that same day! WOW and good for him..... However the building looks like he was FAST, FAST and FAST in putting it up. Inside the building I have nails all over that missed their target, I had 2x4's with as many as 8 nails in one location to make sure it held and my ramp that cost and extra $100 broke at the end the very first time I walked on it. My girlfriend thought we could have designed and built a better ramp! My neighbor also pointed out the doors which open hit the shingles thus I have to make sure I design something to protect them from being broken. I have to admit I paid
before I looked at every detail and I didn't expect the perfect building however $3K in just a few hours I at least expect it to be put together in a way that reflects the kind of carpenter who builds these every day! In retrospect I realize anyone who is shooting nails that fast can't be doing a quality job which I felt we deserved! After all they received $3K check on the spot and I assure you it cleared the first time. I'm putting caulk in all the holes which were created by the nail gun put on the side of the building where he use the side panels to nail his scaffoling. I'm als waiting for the first rain. The building looks great and I hope it delivers us many years of safisfaction but I would not use Alpine for any future projects. I'm sure there not worried since the guys both use this as extra income after their retirements from the main jobs but I share with my Team all the time....No one remembers how you start a race only how you finish! In this case I think the quality of the workmanship is why I'm so disappointed. it's a shame becuase I think the sales guys are great to work with and seem to be very honest. But there only as strong as their teams who deliver and build and if they keep this up I'm sure more will feel the same.

Angie's Answers


Ballpark number - $30-50/SF for normal garage - in your area, considering need for perimeter foundation to get below frost depth, probably about $40/SF unfinished, $50 finished.

In your area, if you can afford it, I would talk to a Realtor friend (or the one who sold you the house) about how much value a garage would add, and the difference between one and two car - very few houses are built with one cars these days except on narrow city lots, so it might pay (if your budget can handle it) to make it a two-car while you are at it.

Also, a standard 1 car is about 12 x 20 feet - if you make it large enough for a full size pickup or SUV then about 12 x 24 or 12 x 26', which could improve resale value. The current trend is toward 8 to 8-1/2' ceilings and 7-1/2 to 8 foot high entry clearances also, rather than 7 to 7-1/2' ceiling and 6-1/2 foot beam clearance, to handle larger pickups and SUV's with racks.


Definitely - if you are interested, there are good videos on how it works on This Old House and Hometime websites, and probably on Youtube too, or google  -  "epoxy floor covering"

It takes A LOT of careful prep and you have limited working time to handle it (it is a 2-component product like epoxy glues and fibreglass resin, so has vdery limited working time after you mix the two components), so unless you are quite experienced with fast-setting finishes I would NOT recommend you do it yourself - get it wrong and it is MUCH harder to remove than to put on. Also, it is important to sprinkle the non-slip material over it at the right time without stepping in it or getting any on flooring that is not yet covered with the epoxy.

Find a specialty contractor for garage floor sealing - normal painters and contractors may or may not know how to do it. Rough cost estimate, WITHOUT moving a lot of stuff in and out of the garage, $1.25-3.00/SF depending on how expensive a finish you get. Keep in mind you will have to move everything out of the garage for a few days to a week, or pay them to come twice (which I have seen done) - to do it by halves about a week apart, with you moving workbenches, tool chests, etc from one end of the garage to the other before they come back.

There are a lot of off-brand products out there - a lot of them are garbage, and some claiming to be epoxy are not even 2-component, so not true epoxy. I would stay with national industrial brand names like PPG, Rustoleum, Armorchip, AkzoNobel, Dulux, ISF - the ones made by consumer paint companies like Behr, Sherwin Williams, etc seem to have a lot of bad press about them.

One thing to consider, is if your slab was coated with a water repellent or sealer, that will probably have to be sandblasted or ground off before an epoxy can adhere properly - for about $0.50-1.00/SF more.

If you are not up to spending $1000 or so on protecting a floor you drive on, you can get Rustoleum Epoxy Shield Concrete Floor Paint for about $40/gallon that, as long as you degrease and scrub the floor well before hand, sticks quite well including over a normal concrete sealer. While the rustoleum stuff is actually an acrylic, not a true epoxy, it does good for the $. The competing latex concrete paints peel and lift off in no time - they are fine for coating a basement floor to reduce moisture passage before putting down flooring, but do not hold up to garage traffic.

I redo the central driven-on half of mine for about $45 in degreaser and paint about every 10 years and while it does not look like a showroom floor after the first few weeks, it does the job of being easy to clean and repels most vehicle stains (except gasoline, paint solvents like laquer thinner or acetone, or automotive spray solvents like brake or carb cleaner, which will all soften and bubble it). It also is not anywhere as slippery as an epoxy finish. You do have to let it dry a full week to avoid peeling from tires sitting on it.

As a condo owner I presume you have checked with the condo manager - most condos have rules about types of finishes that can be used, and in some cases even colors.


That is a pretty old and small house to be putting much money into.

My recommendation would be to do no more than box in the carport as a garage, if you have use for that.

Adding a bathroom and laundry room to a garage generally means a new foundation for them, so significant cost for the small added space you are getting. Generally, one would recommend an addition rather than putting those in a garage. However, for this old a house an addition could be equal to the value of the house.

My recommendation - talk to the Realtor you bought it from, or a Realtor friend, about what certain improvements could do to the value of the house. I fear you will find that anything other than a teardown might not add to value at all, because any significant addition to that old a house, and that size if typical of the neighborhood, would make it an oddball house for the area and reduce rather than enchance saleability.


Garage Building reviews in Modesto


Working with
Modesto Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
was amazing. We knew what we wanted when we went in. He made some very good suggestions that we incorporated. The site visit was very informative and he made more suggestions after seeing where the building was going. He even understood my indecision on color and was patient with it.
The carpenter showed up on time, worked steadily and quickly. When he was done a day later, husband had his dream shed. The area and inside of the building were left clean.
We would definitely recommend

to everyone. Price is very fair. Employees are a joy to work with. And you have an end project that looks dynamite.

and his worker were great! Very nice, professional and fast workers. They had the new gutters up in the blink of an eye. The colors match perfectly and are installed much better than what was on the house when we bought it. We couldn't be happier! We will definitely use them for any future work we need!

. Without pointing out the code violations,
Modesto Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
walked around and correctly pointed out everything that was missing. He finished my project fast and did an excellent job. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone that needs a builder to do any project.

Everything went as planned except for one thing, my shed was supposed to be delivered during the first two weeks of September. When I hadn't heard anything by the third week I called the dealer. He immediately contacted the company and delivery was arranged. It would have been nice to have it sooner because I am staining it myself and wanted to get started on the landscaping. Other than that little glitch everything about the process went smoothly, the dealer was extremely nice and helpful. I'm thrilled with the quality. The delivery went smoothly, the driver called ahead to check if it was okay to come a little early. He was very nice and skillfully positioned the shed. The dealer stopped by later to make sure were satisfied and apologized for the delay. I love my shed!

I was ready to buy a pre-built shed from Home Depot, as I found the one I liked on their website, but when it became a real paint find someone to install it, I decided to go another route and researched garden sheds on line. I called
Modesto Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
and another company.
Modesto Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
called me back that day. We arranged a time for me to come to the shop and check out his sample building. I told
Modesto Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
about the shed I found at Home Depot, and he took the time to go look at one just like it at a Home Depot near his shop. From the beginning,
Modesto Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
was great to work with. He promptly sent me an estimate, and we got on the schedule. On the day of installation, he showed up on time, and he and his helper were courteous, polite, and professional. They were neat and clean and efficient. Our shed is a 15 x 8 Gable style, and we love it. It is obvious he takes great pride in his work. The shed is sturdy, and well built, much better than the one I chose at Home Depot!! He installed roofing, and study door latches. We couldn't be happier.
- Jill C.

Since we had a set budget for the project we wanted built we decided not to go with this contractor. If there was a way for us to do so we would have gone with Mr.
Modesto Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
. He is very professional and respectful. I feel that his materials providers are a little high on their pricing. That was our main problem with the bid and he just couldn't come down any more on the total price.
- leni W.

The specialty order was easy. The shed was completed ahead of schedule. Delivery was scheduled at my convenience. Delivery was perfect.
- Sherry S.

Work was done quickly and correct.
He is wonderful!
He is easy to work with and does the job quickly.
I would highly recommend him.
He is always the first one I call when I have a repair or list of items that need to get completed.
