maxresdefault.jpgWant your garage to be more than just a parking space or storage room? Depending on the size of your garage, you have several possibilities. Transform your garage with one of our garage remodel ideas! 

One Car Garage

Personal Gym - Eliminate the need for a monthly gym membership and transform your garage into a gym. Install rubber flooring, choose your equipment and certainly don't forget the AC! While an actual AC system would be best, you could get by with a box fan.

Home Office - Looking for a little extra office space? Hang drywall, install flooring, install a small HVAC system and transform your garage into the space you need! 

Laundry Room - Remove the noise of a washer and dryer from the interior of your home and into the garage! You will have to do plumbing installation, dryer venting and a little electrical work.

Two/Three Car Garage

Family Room/Home Theater - Turn your garage into a place for your family to gather for a fun night. You can make this remodel and pricey or inexpensive as you'd like, depending on the type of entertainment equipment and furniture you choose.

Studio - Transform your garage into a create space for art or music! For art, you may consider adding cabinetry and windows (to catch the light) and for music, you would want to soundproof your garage as to not disturb anyone inside. Either way, you would want to install some type of HVAC system.

Apartment - Convert your garage into an apartment for a family member, or even to rent! This can increase the value of your home as well. As you might expect, this transformation will be a little more expensive due to the extent of the remodel (plumbing, electrical, separate HVAC, flooring, drywall, decorating, etc.)

Before tackling a garage remodel, be sure to check with your city about building codes, permits, licenses, etc. No matter how you transform your garage, you'll want to be sure you have the perfect garage door to complete the space!

4th Of July Safety Tips

Posted by Overhead Door Permian Basin on Fri, Jul 01, 2016 @ 08:30 AM

Celebrating the Fourth of July is a summertime highlight. Whether you're on the lake, shooting fireworks, or just enjoying a backyard barbecue, July 4th is a fun time for friends and family! However, the 4th can also bring various hazards. Be sure to stay safe with our 4th of July safety tips!4th_of_July.jpg

Tip 1

Keep A Fire Extinguisher Handy-Always have a fire extinguisher available in case of emergency (garage, kitchen, car, etc.) Not only should it be available, but you should also be familiar with how to use it. If they are old enough, tell your children where the extinguisher is located and when/how to use it.

Tip 2

Protect From The Sun-If you are spending this Fourth of July outdoors, be sure to lather up with sunscreen! Look for a sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB rays and has an SPF level of at least 30. You should apply sunscreen 30 minutes before sun exposure and reapply at least every 2 hours. Consider wearing hats/caps to protect areas like the scalp, neck, and ears. 

Tip 3

Enjoy From A Distance-When shooting fireworks, be sure viewers stay a safe distance away. The best way to do this is to rope off a section of the yard where viewers must stay behind the rope. 

Tip 4

Ear Protection-Especially for young children, it is important to protect their ears during a loud firework display. You can use a variety of different methods to do this, anything from winter earmuffs, to electronic earmuffs (found in the gun safety section of sports stores), or even cotton balls! Anything that will muffle the noise of the fireworks will help to protect your ears.

Any way you choose to celebrate, we hope you have a wonderful, safe, Fourth of July spent with friends and family!
