Why You Should Invest in a Second Garage Door

Crime Prevention

No matter where you live in Minneapolis, your cars are vulnerable to vandalism, car theft, and break-ins. Driving your car into the garage, closing the door, and walking into your home also protect you from any possible safety issues. Even if you live in a low-crime neighborhood, taking extra precautions to secure your vehicle is always a good investment.

Added Storage Space

The storage space in your home can fill up quickly. Your storage shed out back may already be filled up with yard equipment and household supplies. Additional garage space is also great for housing lawn mowers, bicycles, barbecue grills, golf clubs, yard maintenance equipment, spare tires, gardening supplies, firewood, tools, and lawn chairs. By adding space to your garage, you may find that accessing these items is much easier.

Weather Protection

The weather in Minnesota is unpredictable -, especially during the winter. Ice dams, falling branches, and hail storms can take their toll on your car. In some cases, these weather conditions can cause serious damage. Keeping your car parked in the sunlight can also wear out both the outside and inside of your vehicle. A second garage will allow you to enter a more comfortable car that is neither too hot or too cold.

Added Home Value


While it’s difficult to estimate how much value a garage extension will add to your home, it’s worth exploring. There are several factors to consider, such as the age of your home, the cost of adding the extra space, your home’s current appraisal, and how much space the new addition provides. You may want to consult with an appraiser or a real estate agent to crunch the numbers.

Customize Your New Space

If you’re the creative type, you’ve probably already considered the possibility of turning your newly extended garage into a storage area. If you want to do more than keep the lawnmower in the extra garage, then you can turn it into an entertainment room, wine cellar, home theater, party room, recording studio, art studio, or reading room down the road. The extra space will give you options.
