Del Mar Garage Conversion

Are you looking for a way to maximize the space in your home? If you have an unused garage, it's time to consider a garage conversion. Better Place Remodeling specializes in garage conversion in Del Mar, providing outstanding results for single and double garages.

Why You Should Consider a Garage Conversion

Converting your garage into a functional room can benefit your Del Mar home. For one, it adds value to your property. If you plan on selling your home, a converted garage can increase its value significantly.

A garage conversion also creates more living space for your family, which can be useful if you have a growing family or need extra space for guests.

Additionally, a converted garage can be used for various purposes, such as a home office, gym, or entertainment room. With a garage conversion, you have the flexibility to customize the space to suit your needs and lifestyle.

    My wife and I hired Better Place Remodeling on May 7, 2020, and our project was completed on August 31, 2020. Evi was the first person with whom we made in-person contact, and let me tell you, he exuded nothing but professionalism, courtesy, and respect to both my wife and me! Having hired F.A.T. Construction prior under the general foreman Tony Chavez and having a VERY POOR experience with that contractor, my wife and I were very skeptical, to say the least. Evi quickly earned our trust and our business through his constant contact and updates. He always kept my wife in the loop with all major decisions during the project. Had I not continuously kept adding more to the project, Evi and his crew would have finished a lot sooner than expected. Evi even went so far as to bring us his favorite type of coffee direct from Israel as we had a good working relationship. The one time I got frustrated at the job was nothing to do with Better Place Remodeling, but rather the City of Escondido with their slow permit approval process due to COVID-19. Even though this wasn't Evi's fault, he even brought me Starbucks coffee one night and further explained the backlog of permits. I also would like to send a shout-out to Barr and to Evi's top Landscaper Herman. Barr stepped in and helped Evi with our project when Evi's plate was full. Barr also exuded the same professionalism, courtesy, and respect to both my wife and me! Herman? What can I say? The guy has landscaping skills! Let him make suggestions to you and be open-minded about them-you will not be disappointed! Thanks, Evi, Barr, and Herman for such tremendous work on our home!

      1 Do You Offer Professional Advice to Your Clients before Embarking on a Project?

      Every project we embark on begins with our development team advising you on how to proceed. Here we may advise you on what to do, how to do it, and in some rare cases, why not to go ahead with a build.

      Our general remodeling services include planning, permits, building schedule, materials, and building design.

      2 Can I Add Extra Square Footage to My Garage Conversion?

      Absolutely, we can expand your garage conversion, both vertically and horizontally, depending on the local zoning laws and the existing structure of your garage.

      Expanding the garage conversion vertically may require an additional floor, while expanding horizontally may involve extending the walls or building an addition. Our structural design team evaluates your garage’s structural integrity and offers the best recommendations for expanding the space.

      3 What are some Creative Wall Options for Garage Conversions?

      Reclaimed wood, brick veneer, stacked stone, or decorative tiles are just a few options. These materials can add texture, depth, and character to your space, transforming it from a dull and unused area to an inviting and stylish living space.

      4 Do I Need a Separate Entrance for My ADU?

      The need for a separate entrance for your ADU depends on the design and type of the unit. In some cases, a separate entrance may be required by local regulations, while in other cases, it may not be necessary.

      5 Do I Need a Separate Utility Meter for My ADU?

      Whether or not you need a separate utility meter for your ADU depends on your local Del Mar zoning laws and utility company regulations.

      Separate utility meters may be required to measure the ADU’s electricity, gas, and water usage separately from the main house; we will help you determine these requirements and ensure that your ADU is up to code.

      6 How long does it take to Obtain Outdoor Upgrade Permits?

      It can take a couple of weeks to obtain outdoor upgrade permits, but mostly it varies permitting office and how fast they get it done. We have experience working with local permit offices and can help expedite the process as much as possible.

      7 What are the Benefits of Remodeling My Front Yard?

      Remodeling your front yard can have several benefits, such as increasing your home’s curb appeal, creating more usable outdoor space, and improving the overall value of your property.

      At Better Place Remodeling, we help you choose the right plants and hardscaping features for your yard, as well as provide insight into any necessary irrigation or drainage improvements.

      8 How Do You Handle Drainage Issues in a Backyard Remodel?

      During your backyard upgrade, we will assess and improve your yard’s drainage by grading the soil, installing a French drain, or creating a rain garden.

      We can also provide solutions to other potential issues that may arise, such as working around existing trees or utility lines.

      9 What Materials Do You Use for Backyard Patios and Decks?

      As a remodeling contractor in Del Mar, we use a range of materials for backyard patios and decks, such as concrete, pavers, natural stone, and composite decking. We can help you choose the best materials based on your style and maintenance preferences.

      10 What are the Benefits of Open Concept Kitchen Remodels?

      Open-concept kitchen layout upgrades can provide several benefits, such as improved traffic flow, increased natural light, and better functionality.

      As a Del Mar kitchen remodeling contractor, we can help you design and execute an open-concept kitchen remodel by removing walls, adding or relocating appliances, and selecting finishes and fixtures that complement your design.

      11 How Do I Make a Small Bathroom Look Bigger during a Remodel?

      Our design team has several design solutions to make your small bathroom look bigger. For example, choosing light colors for walls and fixtures can help create the illusion of more space, as can adding mirrors to reflect light and expand the visual space.

      Better Place Remodeling’s designers will assess your bathroom and recommend the best design options to make your space look and feel larger. We can also guide you on maximizing storage and improving functionality in a small bathroom.

      12 Do I Have to Move Out During the Remodeling?

      Before starting on remodel, we must consider the extent of the project and discuss if you are comfortable being around or moving out temporarily. Even so, no matter how small the work area is, it still boils down to your tolerance for disruptions and inconveniences.

      13 Do I Have to Secure Permits?

      Again, this depends on the extent of the project. Usually, smaller remodeling projects like replacing countertops or existing sinks do not need permits. However, if you need to demolish walls, install new electrical wiring, or change anything in your home’s layout, you must secure permits.

      In any case, we will discuss any paperwork required for your project. Don’t worry because we will help you with the process.

      14 How long does it take to complete a Build/Remodeling Project?

      The lead times for a build or remodeling project will depend on many factors, e.g., the scale of the project. We can only provide you with an answer once you have come in for an initial consultation.

      15 Will I Get Personalized Finishes for my Project?

      Yes, we do. You will have to share your desired finishes and specifications so we can provide the resources needed to accomplish them. Additionally, through our designs, you can see and choose your preferences before implementation.
