Homeowners have different reasons for wanting a garage addition. Some are motivated by the desire to protect themselves and their cars from bad weather. Others just want more storage space or a workspace away from the main house. With the possibility of second-level rooms, a garage addition can even add to the functional living space. For those concerned about the budget, a garage addition is a good investment: Remodeling Magazine’s latest Cost vs. Value Report found that a homeowner who invests in a two-car garage addition can expect to make back about 69% of the cost at resale.

Before you can decide to go ahead with a garage project, you’ll need to make a few decisions. After determining if your proposed garage will fit on your lot, you have to look at several factors. First, how close can you build to the edge of your property line? It is also important to discover any unique restrictions that apply to garages in your neighborhood. For example, some communities require deeper setbacks on sides with doors. In addition to the building codes, you may need to consider the expansion of the driveway to the new garage. A retaining wall may need to be built along the side of a new driveway to prevent land from collapsing or spilling over into the neighboring property. And proper drainage of water away from the new garage and/or an expanded driveway is also a factor.
