Proposition for a Garage Renovation Project
You want to build a new garage? We have a neat project to propose you: a 26‑0by‑26 foot freestanding two‑car garage, including footings and slab‑on‑grade foundation, 2x4 wood frame with OSB structural sheathing and gable truss roof at 6½ pitch.
First, you must install 25‑year asphalt shingle roofing with galvanized metal flashing, vinyl siding and trim. Then, install five double‑hung, 30‑by‑48 inch vinyl windows; also, put on one 3‑0/6‑8 exterior door with half‑glass and lockset and two composite 9‑by‑8 foot overhead doors with motorized openers.
You may include to the project a 100‑amp breaker at main house panel and 50‑linear feet of trench buried conduit in order to properly feed a new electrical subpanel. Also, it is important to provide all the electrical wiring necessary for the openers. Include a 100‑amp breaker at our main house panel and don’t forget about 50‑linear feet of trench buried conduit so you can feed the new electrical subpanel. You must provide electrical wiring for openers as well as a three way switching for fluorescent ceiling fixtures over each bay, a three way switching for two exterior spotlights and outlets to code.
Finally, it’s time for interior walls to install, floors and ceiling.
If you simply wish to proceed with the replacement of your garage door, here’s what you should do. Remove and dispose of your existing garage door and install a new 4‑section garage door on new galvanized steel tracks. Then, reuse the existing motorized opener. You’ll save money and it’s good for the environment. Your new door should be uninsulated with a single layer and could comprise embossed steel with two coats of baked‑on paint, galvanized steel hinges and nylon rollers for more quietness.
