Garage Additions Done Right/Conversions

Garage additions and conversions not only add space that meets the needs of homeowners, but they will also add value to your property as a whole. Whether you want your garage to be a place to keep your vehicles clean and safe, or you want additional features within the space, our professional team can help you achieve your vision.

The pro team at Element Home Remodeling Contractors takes pride in the fact that we can follow through from concept to completion. You have an idea, or even a solid concept of what you want, we can add creative magic and build the garage addition or complete the conversion you envisage.

Attached or Detached Garages

Garages take various forms and we design them with several different specifications. In addition to size, garages can be attached to your existing house or we can design and build a separate, detached structure. Your decision ought to be based not only on your budget but also on your needs.

We are always quick to point out to our clients that an attached garage is the less expensive option. This stands to reason, since you are building it against an outside wall of your house, there is less structural work to do. It is also more convenient for loading and unloading vehicles.

But if you want to use part of your garage as a workshop, for instance, you can benefit from building a detached garage that is away from your home. Of course, this will depend on the size of your property and how close to boundary lines you can legally build. An obvious advantage will be to shield the house from noisy power tools. If you want to link the two buildings, we can build a covered walkway between the two.

Design Build

We are equally happy to work with your design concept or to come up with an amazing design based on your needs and input. In any case, we manage the entire addition or conversion process from the planning stage to the handover. You can depend on our in-house teams that offer the services of designers, architects, engineers, and construction specialists. Having them work together under your own project manager, results in a streamlined, seamless operation that is easy for us to oversee. We also deal with all communications with your city or county.

 

We start the design-build process by checking the zoning laws in your area. This tells us where a garage can be located and whether there are size limitations and/or requirements that relate to design elements and materials. Once we have your input, and understand your vision, one of our licensed  architects will draw your plans. If the local council needs permits, we organize these as well as all the inspections they require once the build or conversion begins.

Can I add an Addition to an Existing Garage?

The conversions we undertake often include additions to existing garages, especially when our clients want to extend the use of their existing garages. You get to keep a garage for your cars, but you get more space for whatever else you need the structure to accommodate. You might be surprised to discover that there are several ways that we can add to your existing garage.

Your ultimate decision will be based on whether you want to keep the addition on the same level and expand horizontally or take it up to a second story by expanding vertically. If you want to expand your garage for vehicles, you will need to add space on the same level. But, if you want to add living space, or perhaps add a workroom or even a laundry area, then going up might be the best option. We can help you decide which is the best option.

Can I Convert My Garage to More Living Space?

Yes, you can. In fact, many of our clients choose to convert the entire garage area to an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) for their children, parents, or often to rent out. Converting garages to home offices is another hugely popular option.

If you opt for an ADU, there will usually be local authority rules and regulations that we will have to comply with (on your behalf). One of the most common is that the new or converted building must follow the design and style of your home. Another is that an ADU must be smaller than your home.

If you don’t want an ADU, you might want a work area, laundry or utility area, or simply a place to store sports equipment, garden tools, or excess furniture you can’t find space for in your home. No problem. We will tailor your conversion plans to meet your needs.

Can I Add a Living Space Above My Garage?

We’ve said that you can add living space to an existing garage, and one of the ways that you can do this is to go upstairs. What we do is design and build a unit that converts your garage from space for cars to a multifunctional unit with living space above the cars.

Some of the most popular options our clients have asked us to tackle include extra rooms including:

  • Bonus non-traditional rooms that give you the space for teen hangouts, a yoga studio, a music room, a home gym, or even a home office.  
  • Mini apartments or guest suites that you can rent out.
  • Additional bedrooms or studies that you can use as workrooms to work-from-home.

Local zoning laws do come into play here but don’t worry, we will help you ensure that what you want to do is legal.

I am more than happy with this bathroom remodeling company. They have just completed a bathroom remodel in my small apartment. I didn`t think there was much they would be able to do to make my small bathroom look more spacious while adding extra storage space. There were several obstacles in the remodeling project, like a partial wall containing water pipes which partitioned the bathroom off and limited the options for reorganizing the position of the sink and toilet. However Dave, the project manager came through and thanks to his innovative ideas my remodeled bathroom looks amazingly different. I can`t believe the difference that this bathroom remodel has made. The room looks much bigger, even though it has more cupboards in it than before the bathroom remodel. It is much brighter and I love the color scheme that the designers at Element Bathroom Remodelers advised me to go with. I am so glad I took their advice. This bathroom remodeling company are true professionals and really know what they are doing. I highly recommend them.

After checking out several home remodeling companies, we finally decided to hire Element Kitchen Remodeling for our kitchen remodel . As we were on a limited budget we decided to limit the kitchen remodeling project to replacing the kitchen cabinets and floor tiles. However, after our meeting with Dima, the kitchen remodeling project manager, we realized that if we followed some of his recommendations, we would actually be able to make additional improvements to the kitchen and still stay within our planned budget. This meant that thanks to Element kitchen Remodeling`s project manager and the kitchen remodeling team I finally got the kitchen of my dreams. It is perfect and the standard of work and professionalism of the kitchen remodeling team is excellent. Thanks so much Element Kitchen Remodeling.

Element Home Remodeling just completed a master bathroom remodeling project in my Mountain View home. Although the room is quite large and has enough space for a bath and shower, I chose to have just a walk in shower along with his and her sinks and a bidet and toilet. I also had a complete re-tile of the floor and walls. Because of the size of the room I was worried that it may appear empty and cold if I removed the bath, but Dima the bathroom remodeling project manager showed me the many options I had with regards to shower size and types of cabinets. He also completely rearranged the layout of the bathroom in a way that I would not have imagined and the finished result is unique and stunning. As a home remodeling project manager, Dima goes above and beyond his role. This and the professionalism and high standards of the bathroom remodeling team are a guarantee of success. The remodeled bathroom is now a place I love to spend time in. The color scheme is relaxing and light without being cold and there is so much storage space without it being overwhelming. The members of Element Home Remodeling Contractors are professional and have high standards and work ethics. I am very happy that I chose this home remodeling company for my bathroom remodeling project.
1571348291
Thanks to Element Home Remodeling my guest bedroom and bathroom have been completely transformed from being cramped and dark to light and welcoming. I am now happy to invite people to stay over and no longer have to apologise for the condition of the room. The remodeling team of designers and builders have created a guest unit that far exceeds my expectations. I'm amazed at how much more storage space there is and yet the room looks so much bigger. Dave, the home remodeling project manager was available at all times during the project and his ideas and input were invaluable. This home remodeling company definite gets a five star . Highly recommended.

Six weeks ago we had the pleasure of working with Element Home Remodeling Company when they completed a home remodel of my living room and study. We wished to create a more open plan of the two rooms and contacted Element Home Remodeling to arrange a consultation. Two years ago this company completed a bathroom remodeling project for us and we were very satisfied with their work and decided to use their service again. This time the home remodeling project manager was Dima, who turned out to be a very nice guy with some really original ideas. He spent quite a long time with us planning the home remodeling project and gave us a couple of options to work with. Once we had closed on the plans, the work progressed very smoothly. The builders that Element Home Remodeling sent were very professional and polite. It was very clear that they were making a lot of effort to cause us as little disruption as possible. Not only that, they also took pride in their work and kept a very high standard. I can honestly say that this remodeling project was the easiest that we have undergone so far. The home remodeling team succeeded in creating a clean and open living space that is even nicer than we had imagined. I will have no worries hiring this home remodeling company again.

Our home was in need of a full home remodeling which included remodeling the kitchen, bathroom, guest bathroom and master bedroom. We met with Rafael from Element Home Remodeling Contractors after interviewing a few different companies. Rafael was the only one that noticed that we had some issues with the plans that were created for us by a professional architect. At first I thought that he was mistaken, but after double checking I noticed he was right. We decided not to take any risks and started over. We drew up new plans with the architects from Element Home remodeling Contractors and started to work with them on design ideas. The work that was done by the home remodeling team of contractors was very good. They took note of the small details and that was pretty impressive. Rafael managed the entire home remodeling project and he was very responsible and made sure that everything ticked like clockwork. Our home looks great. The kitchen has much more space, which is a very refreshing change. When it comes to customer service the office staff at Element Home Remodeling Contractors were polite and available whenever needed.

We started to have many issues with the bathroom plumbing in the past year and knew that we would need to replace the plumbing soon. We decided that if we were going to make such changes we might as well have a full bathroom remodeling done. We met with a few bathroom remodeling contractors and decided to hire Element Home Remodeling. Dave was our bathroom remodeling project manager. He is a very professional and responsible guy. The company took care of everything from start to finish. We didn’t know much about how and where to start, but Dave and the bathroom remodeling team were very helpful and easy to work with. Our bathroom looks great, but more important we have put an end to the leaks and all the plumbing issues that we had.
1575357523

We hired Element Home Remodeling to remodel our rusty kitchen and bathroom. We needed to replace the entire plumbing system which was in a very bad condition we contacted Element Home Remodeling Contractors after getting some positive feedback from my cousin who used their remodeling services. We met with many home remodeling companies, but because my cousin lives in Sunnyvale all I had to do was jump for a visit and check the work that was done at his property, so choosing Element Home Remodeling was easy. They did a very good job we are all enjoying our new kitchen and bathroom and most important the new plumbing system. It is a refreshing change to not have to call a plumber every other week. I had a very good experience with Element Home Remodeling Contractors.

I don't usually write reviews but I wanted to share my experience with Element Home Remodeling, in part as a thank you to them for the great job they did on my home remodeling project.We chose this Element Home Remodeling on the recommendation of a friend who had hired them for kitchen remodel and was very happy with their work.From the start we got positive vibes. Matt the project manager went above and beyond his job description and was literally available to us 24/7. He kept us fully updated and made sure the remodeling progress was on schedule.The entire team of professionals who work on our project were well coordinated and worked well together. I think that this is one of the main reasons why the remodel turned out to be a success.We are very happy with our new home and with the service that was provided. I very much recommend Element Home Remodeling

This is the third time that I have hired Element Home Remodeling. They have become my go to home remodelers because so far I have not been disappointed in their level of work and customer service. This was the first time that I have worked with Refael, the project manager who was assigned to our project. We were looking at having our kitchen remodeled and adding on an extension. It was quite a big project and we decided to use Element’s architects and designers rather than complicate the situation further by using “outsiders”. That decision definitely made the remodel run more smoothly, mainly because Refael and the entire remodeling crew worked together and were well coordinated.Even though this remodel was done under the Covid 19 restrictions which caused some minor delays, the project was still completed within the time frame. As in the previous projects, the estimate for the remodeling costs which Refael and the company gave, were accurate, and the only deviations made where by us when we decided to add some additional work to the original scope. The designers involved in the remodel advised us where we could cut down on costs and where it would be better to upgrade. The workmanship in during the remodeling process is as always pristine. Once again Element Home Remodeling proved themselves to be one of the best remodeling contractors on the area.

We had a great time working with Sean and Element Home Remodelling. Our bathrooms needed some serious TLC after our kids had all moved off to college. Sean used our existing space and style but updated it to the 21st century. Sean and his crew were extremely professional and were very unobtrusive while they worked. They kept us in the loop and were always available to us. The finished bathrooms are better than we ever could’ve hoped for. Everything is very detailed and to our taste.
1620721829
A big thank you to the team of Element home remodeling for the wonderful work they did in my bedroom remodel. They were punctual, kept to the design and cleaned up everyday before leaving. I felt comfortable having them in the house and could see that they had high standards. It's been about two months since they finished and I still haven't found anything to complain about.

After spending the last two months undergoing a kitchen renovation I would like to take my hat off to Element Home Remodeling for the great job they did.When I first contacted them they arranged a meeting within a few days of my calling and I had the pleasure to meet Refael who was assigned to be my project manager. The first meeting was very productive, and I especially appreciated that I wasn`t put under any pressure to hire them. Refael gave me all the information I needed and then left me to make my decision. I thought the price was fair and the suggestions that Refael made appealed to me, so I decided to go ahead and hire them.Work commenced a week after we obtained a permit. I`m happy to say that it went smoothly without any major setbacks. The renovation was quite extensive and involved extending the windows to allow more light into the room and removing a load load bearing wall to open up the dining room and create an open plan. I wasn`t based in the home during the renovation but Refael, made sure to keep me updated regularly and I visited several times to look at the progress.All in all I had a very positive experience with this company and I am very happy that I chose them for the job.

We have just finished construction of a guest unit in the loft of our house. Element Home remodeling was recommended by a neighbor who had used them for some renovations about a year ago.I needed the work to be done quite urgently because my mother in-law was coming for a prolonged stay and we wanted it to be ready for her arrival. I explained the situation to Refael who became our project manager and he ensured me that they would get the work done on time.He kept to his word. Work began right after we got all the required paperwork approved by the city. During the process the builders arrived at the scheduled time in the morning and worked through the whole day. As the deadline loomed near they even stayed over their scheduled hours in order to complete the work on time.The guys made sure that the area was clean and safe at all times.Element Home Remodeling did a fantastic job. The unit is very inviting and is totally self contained with a bathroom and kitchen area. It is user friendly and perfectly safe and comfortable for an older person to live independently.We are all very happy with the work provided by Element Home Remolding.

Five months ago Element Home Remodeling renovated our kitchen in our newly acquired house. When we bought the place we knew that the kitchen would be the first area to renovate because it was outdated. We met with Jamie the company architect and he drew up plans for the new kitchen after listening to what we wanted as regards style and layout. I was glad to have Jamie and Matt around because they gave us some really relevant information which prevented us from making some serious mistakes.Matt the project manager was available whenever we needed him. He kept the project flowing and was terrific to work with. Because of the odd shape of the kitchen, we needed custom made cabinets which we had made by Elements carpenters. I have to say that these are what make the kitchen so special. The quality of work is exceptional.I chose to wait a few months before writing the review because I wanted to use the kitchen a while and see if any defects or problems turned up. I have to say that up to now I am happy with what I see.

They all went out of their way to ensure we got what we wanted. Easily recommend them.
