Not only do we enjoy handling the maintenance of garage doors but we like to provide practical tips and information regarding garage doors. In fact, we’ve even helped people to transform their garage into another room for their home.

There are many reasons for and areas where you could start a renovation project in your home. The garage is often last to be considered but it is a large space and something that could work well for a game room, fitness equipment or even a child’s play room. What about your dream bedroom as an option?

The Benefits and How to Turn Your Garage Into Your Dream Bedroom:

The Cost Benefit

One benefit of this type of renovation is that the walls, roof and foundation are already in place. In other words, this is much less expensive way to getting your dream bedroom than building an entire addition to your home.

Time Investment

A project to convert your garage to a bedroom will be a time investment of a month to six weeks. Your contractor can give you specific details but that is a reasonable timeframe to consider. The permits will need to be pulled and then the scheduling will need to be considered for a time that works for you and the contractor.

Set a Budget


When starting a home improvement project, you’ll want to be sure and set a budget. A reasonable amount to plan for is anywhere around $20,000 to $40,000 for a conversion project of a garage to a bedroom.

If you plan to include a bathroom in your new bedroom, then you will need to plan for another $15,000 budget wise.

Existing Walls

Since you will use your existing walls for your conversion project, you’ll save money, time and frustrations because you won’t have to frame the room.

Check for the following when it comes to your walls:

  • Adequate wall insulation
  • Drywall in good condition
  • Consider where you’d want closets

Electrical Wiring

Be sure to hire a professional for any electrical work. The main reason is because electricians know where to mount outlets, place fixtures and how to add another circuit to the breaker panel in the event that your new room needs it.



Adding a bathroom to your home improvement project is one of the more difficult steps to the process. A garage that is becoming a bedroom may or may not require a bathroom. The decision is up to the homeowner but just be prepared for this part to be a little more involved.

Heat and AC

If you are able, try to extend the ductwork of your home into the garage for your new bedroom. You can also consider baseboard heating, window AC units or installing a ductless system to heat and cool this space.

Garage Door Replacement

Last but not least, you’ll need to replace your garage door with something that is well insulated. Our company is able to assist you with finding the right fit for your home. Either way, you will need to replace the door to complete your project.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
