It seems that tidying up your home is something everyone is doing these days. A tidy home can be a more comfortable, stress-free home. But what about your garage? Is it really possible to tidy up a garage? For sure, organizing a garage can be an intimidating project. How do you sort all the different items of different shapes and sizes? So many things are only used during a certain season, so how do you ensure this important part of your home can accommodate the needs of your family’s activities, along with one or two vehicles?
If you’re a little ashamed of opening your garage door in front of the neighbours, the answer is a custom garage makeover.
Take the next 23 seconds to answer this question and call us or write to us to discuss.
The ultimate objective in renovating a garage is to improve its general condition and usability by replacing or repairing the damaged or obsolete structures with new materials. A garage makeover doesn’t require a demolition since it only involves the interior of the structure and doesn’t impact the outside envelope.
We find that a fair number of garages, particularly in newer residences, have only a minimal amount of finishing, leaving a blank canvas to start a renovation.
Organizing the walls in your garage is a major task. Your needs are continuously changing and evolving, which is why you need a long-lasting, functional and attractive storage solution that has the flexibility to keep your life organized through time.
Our garage wall storage system is the perfect fit for organizing your garage.

Tough, durable and visually appealing, our Duralum custom garage laminate cabinetry can support heavy loads worry-free. It also can endure extreme temperature ranges without any warping, delaminating or failures.
Unfinished, your garage floor is always dusty, tough to clean and not very durable. Nothing enhances a garage makeover like Espazzo polyaspartic garage flooring or porcelain tile garage floor. Both are highly durable coatings with excellent scratch and chemical resistance.

When we launched Espace Garage Plus in 2006, we wanted to offer the residents of the Greater Montreal Area turnkey solutions that would give them back their garage. All too often the garage is neglected space, it was the last space of the home to be conquered and organized. It was a constant battle between the vehicles that we wanted to park, and the numerous seasonal items we wanted to store there. First the closet became the walk-in, then the basement become the home theatre, now it is time to attack, and upgrade the garage.
With hundreds of makeovers under our belt, it is clear that Espace Garage Plus is meeting a real need for homeowners. Now, the dream of “more space in your garage” has become a reality for all those who have entrusted us to the design and makeover of their garage.
The truth is you can start your garage makeover any time throughout the year. There is no better season than the other, but we definitely see an increase of requests come in the spring, and even more in the fall.
Suddenly, you need to create additional space. You need a solution. Winter is almost at your door.
The inside of your garage looks like a scrapheap on a bad day. There’s not even enough space for a stroller, let alone a car. The item you desperately need is hidden beneath piles of junk. The time has come to reorganize.
First, tackle the contents and make three piles, keep, donate, and toss. Once you’ve cleaned up the mess, sort the items you want to keep into different categories (sports equipment, DIY materials, tools) for easy identification and retrieval. The next step is crucial: Prepare a space that’s orderly, practical and multifunctional. Make sure that your reorganization plan incorporates all current and future needs. What’s your budget? Do you plan to keep your car in the garage? Will you need additional storage space? Would you like to have well defined areas for various activities such as gardening, DIY projects and auto repairs?
