"
(owner of CCG) was great! From the first time my wife and I met him to get a bid he was extremely professional. We could tell just by the questions he asked," and the notes he was taking that he was very detailed oriented and wanted to make sure he did exactly what we were wanting him to do. After all of our bids came back we decided to go with CCG because they were the only one that actually listened to us and gave us a very detailed and thought out bid. The other bids were missing things we wanted done and they were very vague with the scope of work they would be doing. CCG was also very open with other jobs they had done and let us view their work so we could do our due diligence. Once we started construction
was at the job site on a very regular basis, he was always available to answer any questions we had regarding the process (I had a TON!) and the next steps that would be taking place. Whenever we ran into an issue (you always will with a project this size), he was wonderful at involving us in the decision making process, he never just did what he wanted too, he always made sure that we made a educated decision on how to proceed. Whenever I felt like the sub contractors did not do what I we wanted them too, all I had to do was call Brain and he was on it! He got it taken care of fixed extremely efficiently. I called
at least ten times a week when we where in the middle of the heaviest construction and if he didn't answer he always call me back that day. We gave CCG a deadline to get the project finished and they busted their tail to get it done and they DID! A good general contractor is worth their weight in gold, and my wife and I could not be happier with how it all turned out and how CCG made it easy through out the entire process, and recommend them to anyone that needs a general contractor I am actually using CCG for a commercial building that I am building out.

"I call Ed when I have a project in the pipeline. What I like best is that he calls me back or sends a text as soon as he can. Many times I have no idea what's involved when I'm" renovating or working on an investment property, but Ed can give me some great ideas and save me money in the process. My wife liked the fact that he was neat and didn't trash our house when they did our master bath renovation last winter! Anyway, when friends and family need work done, I recommend Ed and
. I'll definitely continue using those guys in the future.

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.

Mr
Galesburg Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
came over to give us a quote about creating a window in a cinder block wall. When we hadn't heard from him in a few weeks we called him back. He stated he was just getting the estimate together & would be calling us right back. We never heard from him!!Either they cannot do the work or they have so much work they can ignore their potential customers!! How rude & unprofessional.

This scam artist came to our home under someone else's contractors license and gave us an estimate to build on an extra room. His estimate was 3,000.00. In short, Mr.
Galesburg Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
did things not on our contract and billed us for them. The work he did do would not pass inspection. We had to get someone to finish the job. He was a no show for a full 2 weeks in the middle of the job. He smelled of alcohol most days when he came. Awful!!! We are taking him to court to get our monies back.

was extremely punctual and not only showed up 10 minutes early but confirmed the appoinment with me the night before. He then was nice enough to work nearly an hour overtime to finish everything I needed done and even said he would do it free of charge, but I paid him an extra $100 do to his great work ethic and especially based on how good each job looked when it was done.

After he was done, he cleaned up everything immaculately and packed all his tools away and left. He was extremely courteous the whole time and from what I saw you couldn't ever expect to hire anybody more trustworthy than him, so much so that I left him alone half the day after only knowing him for a few hours!
