"They were wonderful! The service was prompt and professional, my kitchen turned out fantastic and just what I needed! I have seen their work in and around Louisville," and asked them if they would be willing to do work in another state - which they did!
was a little bit expensive, but their work and professionalism far outweighed the cost.

"The double doors are one piece all steel. Far better than
Shed or any other shed we've seen. Walls are 16" on center. Floor" frame is all metal & they leveled the building. In & out in 2 days. Cleaned up everything perfectly.

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 Wilmington

His work was so poor that other contractors don't want to go behind his bad work because they fear they will be blamed for any unforeseen problems he caused. I had to stop him because he refused to get permits for electrical work and at the start of the job he gave me one price and then he kept changing the price throughout-out the job; he refused to put these oral changes in writing! Since that time, he refuses to give money back for the sub-standard work he did. He has so many court cases in the books that I am just one of many in line trying to get money back. It's a hopeless situation (if you look for any bad reviews you have to go to the courthouse because there is nothing showing in the BBB, consumer affairs, blogs or anywhere that I could find on the internet that he is a bad contractor). This guy has court cases across the state. He has left so much damage that it now costs double the amount of what he charged to put the garage up in the first place. His best work is keeping your money and running!

The most responsive and reliable contractor I have worked with. Provided options with clear cost estimates prior to beginning the work. Arrived on time and kept me informed throughout the week long job. Cleaned up each day prior to leaving the job site. In addition they are pleasant, considerate, and in general great people to work with. We have several friends who have used them for interior work, including kitchen remodling, and been very satisfied with their work.

Excellent quality so far, this garage is nicer than my house. This company puts up quality garages in only one day, however I would recommend getting a firm date in writing. I received an estimated date 4 months from when I signed the contract, but that day came and went and the permit had not even been applied for yet! The garage eventually got built, but I had to wait 5 months for a garage that goes up in one day.

It went great and he did a terrific job. He was professional, punctual and true to his original quote. He cleaned up everything very nicely after he was finished. Removing popcorn ceiling can be a messy job. I highly recommend him !! I am a Realtor and have recommended

We looked at lots of options but most other sheds were pre-built and delivered so would not fit through our fence. Fairway was able to build it exactly where we needed it. Two considerations: 1. They charge a small carry fee if they can't back the trailer near the build site, 2. you are responsible for painting exterior to make it weather resistant. They did have a contact who would paint it for about $400 which after painting myself is worth it. Great product, exactly what we needed and would buy all over again.
