Time for a Garage Makeover

When you have a functioning, well-oiled garage door, it’s easy to think there’s no way to improve your garage. After all, what more could you ask for than a solid door that opens and closes when you need it to?

We’re here to tell you that there are several ways to make your garage even more functional, organized, and valuable. Read on to begin your garage makeover journey!

Automatic Opener

An essential part of every modern garage is a well-functioning garage door opener. Long gone are the days of making the kids jump out of the car to open the garage door for you. Now, you’re able to open it up with a push of a button from a few houses down. Many homes already have an automatic opener system installed, but over time they become unreliable and frustrating.

ADS Automatic Door Specialists is proud to offer the installation of top-tier brands for your automatic opener systems which will ensure reliable and seamless operation.

Storage Solutions

The garage is often the landing place for an assortment of junk, tools, bicycles, and holiday decorations. It can easily become a cluttered mess that you try to ignore as you leave for work in the morning.

Installing proper storage solutions in the garage will get everything off the floor and into specific spots. From shelves lining the three walls to cabinets and toolboxes, clearing out your garage and putting everything in its place will open up the garage for its intended purpose, parking your cars!

Floor Upgrades

The standard concrete garage floor is bound to become dirty and stained over time. If you’d rather have a tidy, clean floor, consider sealing it with epoxy. This is a relatively inexpensive way to get an easy-to-clean, shiny garage floor. However, you will want to repaint every three years or so to keep that shine.

If you’d rather not pull out the paint rollers, consider purchasing garage floor tiles or mats. While they come with a higher price tag, this flooring option easily fits together and can be removed for cleaning as often as you’d like.


An unlit garage is not only a safety hazard, but it can also be a turn-off for potential buyers. Give your electrician a call and have them install motion sensor lights to ensure your parking job is perfect.

If you’re a bit of a night owl and enjoy using your garage for miscellaneous DIY projects, good lighting is a great investment to make for your garage. Install some shop lights with LED bulbs for a long-lasting glow.

Install More Outlets

There’s little more frustrating than when you need to plug in the garage freezer, a power tool, a charger for the kid’s electric scooter, and the leaf blower, but you don’t have enough access to power. So while your electrician is over, ask them about installing extra power outlets around the garage.

Build A Workspace

For all of our crafty, handy people out there, the extra space a garage provides for projects is a dream come true! Take full advantage of this space by installing a custom work area for tackling all the amazing projects you’re taking on.
