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.

They arrived on time, started building the shed, the frame was up in one day, they returned the next day, finished building it, then it took two days to paint in, they did a very good job. They also cleaned up anything that they might have messed up.!!!!

Contacted Mr.
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
for an estimate on a large remodeling project. After reading reviews on Angies List, I was looking forward to potentially working with Mr.
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
. He came over to a house that I am purchasing and utilizing a rehab loan to have the work done. Mr.
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
spoke about knowing the rehab loan process and navigating his way through it. He was one of several contractors to provide an estimate. After the initial delay in getting the estimate I contacted Mr.
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
and was told I would have it by the end of the weekend. The weekend came and passed as well as an additional week. I again contacted Mr.
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
by telephone. As I was asking Mr.
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
about the estimate on the phone he began laughing at me and hung up. I was unsure if it was a bad connection so I tried calling back and received no answer. I then contacted his office. His secretary told me she would contact Mr.
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
and have him call me. I never received a call. I was told I would be provided and estimate and wasn't. I thought whole heartedly I would use Mr.
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
on this project as he was familiar with these types of projects. To add insult to injury, Mr.
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
laughed at me on the phone when I inquired about the estimate. In my opinion, Mr.
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
is extremely unprofessional and I would not recommend his services to anyone.

After I paid him in full, everything started to go sour. The level of expertise wasn't there and the work was amateur at best. The city has sent him a "Stop Work" citation, and he hasn't responded to the city. I have attempted to correspond with him multiple times and I asked him to come and complete the project and he claims he has no more money to complete the project. I have found out that he has done this to several other member of my community.

These people are bad news! They do terrible work and are scam artists. We hired them to build a walkout basement for our new house. First, Skip dug the hole in the wrong place. Not sure how, but he missed where I wanted it by about 30 feet. Next, he placed the support beams in the wrong place. And what's worse is he didn't even know it - I had to point it out to him. Apparently, he doesn't know how to read a set of plans. Let's see...the backhoe I rented? He tore it up. The concrete finishing machine that he rented?
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
had to call the police to come pick it up at his house. The concrete forms that he rented? I had to take them back to GFS after they had been overdue for several weeks. Oh, the basement that we hired him to complete? He had to tear down one wall that he put up because it started to crack badly within a week of putting it up and he poured it 3 feet out of square!

Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
was the contractor in the job. He was on time for every appointment. He returned texts and calls within minutes. He completed everything he said he would within budget, and the work was very good. When
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
said he would do some research and get back to us, the turnaround was never more than a couple of days, and there were always several products to review.
I was very happy with
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
and his team, and would definitely recommend him to someone looking for a contractor.
