How should I prepare for a Garage Organization Estimate?

After you’ve scheduled your free garage estimate, there are a handful of things you can do to make the process easier for both you and the company you’re working with.

Where to Start

Take a mental inventory of what’s in your garage.  What do you plan to keep? What do you need easy access to and what can be stored away for infrequent use? Are there any obstructions in the garage that we need to work around? Common obstructions are plumbing, electric panels, water heaters, etc.

What is involved in the Free Estimate?  Am I obligated to do business with you?

A free estimate never obligates you to do business with us.  Our hope is that by meeting with one of our garage experts, you’ll have all of your questions answered and feel 100% confident about hiring us to install your garage project.  During your appointment, you’ll have a chance to look at floor and cabinet samples to choose what colors you love.  The estimator will measure your space and answer any questions you have about the product or the process.  Depending on the complexity of the project, you may get your quote right away and we always do our very best to get the estimate to you the same day.

Do Your Homework

Who are you bringing into your home?  Learn about the company that you have invited into your home.  Are they licensed, insured? Do they have a good online reputation?  Check their various social profiles for testimonials, reviews and job photos.  Look into online consumer resources like Angie’s List, Home Advisor, Porch, Houzz, etc.  Our website has links to Carolina Custom Garages social profiles for prospective customers to check out.

Doing your due diligence will give you peace of mind and ensure a smooth process!

How Much Does it Cost to Epoxy a Garage Floor?

If you’ve started researching different companies and different options for garage floor coatings in the Charlotte or Raleigh areas, you’re undoubtedly wondering what this type of undertaking is going to cost. One of the challenges with answering this question is there are so many variables when evaluating a garage project which is why it’s recommended to have a professional do a comprehensive estimate to accurately quote you. Oil spots, existing floor coatings and deep, extensive cracks are some of the things that can change the pricing of any system as it will involve more prep time.

Typical Epoxy Cost in North Carolina

That being said, across the industry, a typical 2-car garage floor coating may cost somewhere in the range of $1800-$2300, completely installed. So what is a “typical” 2-car garage?  Concrete is in pretty good shape and doesn’t require a ton of prep work like filling extremely large cracks.

What doesn’t change the cost?

  • Color you pick
  • Adding aggregate to top coat to make it less slippery
  • Typical surface prep and patchwork
  • Lifetime warranty

i have questions

Decisions, decisions.  It seems like my life is riddled with things I need to decide on.  Not all of them are life-altering, but I spend most of my days hovering under an umbrella of things like:

What should I cook for dinner? (Anything cheesy, carb-loaded & family-friendly)
Does this make me look fat? (don’t answer that)
Wait, what should I cook for dinner? (groan … grilled chicken & veggies)
Should I sign the kids up for another sports clinic?
Where do I put my focus today?

Some of these loom larger and require more brain-power than others:

Should we buy a new house? Move the kids to another school?
How much money do we need to save for retirement?
Am I a good parent?

Who do you turn to when it matters? For me it’s parents, spouse, pediatrician, realtor… an expert in the field.

For an upcoming series of posts I’ll be answering some of the most important questions that you have about renovating and organizing your garage, beginning with epoxy garage floor coating.   Things like:

  1. How much does it cost to get my garage floor coated?
  2. What do I do with all of my stuff while the garage project is being completed?
  3. How do I know who to hire?
  4. Should I pay for an estimate?
  5. What is the difference between the different epoxy floor companies? Some say they can complete the job in one day.
  6. Can I epoxy my basement? My patio? My kitchen?
  7. I’m pretty handy.  Can I paint my garage floor with a DIY Kit?
  8. My garage floor looks really bad, can you fix it?

Maybe you are a researcher, like me, and find yourself spending hours scouring the web for the smallest of things, perhaps the best all-natural dish soap.  Or perhaps you are more like my husband and just want a single straight answer, don’t bother him with the details. Whatever your preference,  we’ll provide the info you need.
