Three-Car Garages Are Beneficial

by | Mar 5, 2013 | Construction and Maintenance

If you are interested in adding value to your home you may want to think about upgrading your two-car garage for three-car garage. Three-car garages are a great asset to your home and are good for nice curb appeal. There are many reasons why three-car garages are better than two-car garages. We will discuss a few those reasons in this article.

Many times when people buy homes they will take a closer look at those with garages over the ones that do not have garages. As you probably already know many older homes have detached garages that have been added on later or if they have a garage it is typically a one car garage that does not have very much room inside. The newer homes have at least a two-car garage because this is what the public is demanding. Today, many homes are being built with three car garages.

Three-car garages are perfect for growing families of today. Many people have very nice cars that they like to have stored in a large area. By having a three car garage this gives much room to the homeowner to be able to work on their car if and when they ever need to do so. Sometimes families will have a couple of teenagers that have cars of their own and need to have space to park their car as well. This is why three-car garages are of great benefit to any homeowner.

If you do decide to upgrade from a two-car garage to a three-car garage you will be adding quite a value to your home if you ever decide to sell it. The resale value of your home will become higher than all the other houses in your neighborhood that have two-car garages. If you are interested in your home standing out among all the rest building a three-car garage may be for you. The expense that you will have from building on to your garage may be large, but it will be beneficial to you in the end when your house sells for way more than what you had expected.

You may wonder what the best size is for your three-car garage. Typically 24 x 36 is the best size. This may sound quite large but in reality it is perfect as many people have bikes, motorcycles, and other things they want to store in the garage such as old refrigerators and freezers. Many other people like to have at least a small space to work on their car and this 24 x 36 size allows them to do that.
Keep in mind that you should make sure your addition looks as if it was a part of the house in the original plan and does not look like an addition.
