Custom Garages

Building a garage costs $17,000 to $38,000 on average. A typical build runs $40 to $70 per square foot. Large, luxury custom work with high-end materials like slate and brick costs $50,000 to $100,000. Adding a workshop or extra stalls could add another $10,000 to $40,000. For specific prices to match your home’s design, contact a local garage builder.

Detached Garage

A detached garage costs $25,000 to $55,000 or about 20% to 40% more than an attached garage. Some homeowners have reported costs up to $120,000. Detached prices tend to run higher

Attached Garage

An attached garage costs $15,000 to $40,000. Some reports have them as high as $100,000. A two-story attached garage to extend living space can cost as much as $180,000.

Prefab Garage Units or Kits

Prefabricated garages cost $10,000 to $50,000 for most standard single and double wide buildings. That price includes the unit, a foundation, delivery and installation. The unit alone costs $5,000 to $40,000. Two-story and luxury prefabricated garage kits can hit $95,000 or more.

Installing or Repairing Garage Doors & Openers

Installing or repairing a garage door or opener costs $100 to $10,000. Garage door prices typically fall between $350 to $1,100. You can find custom work for close to $10,000. Labor runs $300 to $1,000. Opener prices run $200 to $500 with installation only another $100.

Local garage door companies provide consultations on types, pricing and installs. They’ll help steer you towards the door that you need. Consider the climate and home design when picking materials.

Concrete Slab & Epoxy Garage Floors

Garage epoxy floors cost $1,500 to $3,000. This durable surface coats the concrete, sealing it against absorbing spills. Epoxy cleans up easily and gives the garage a finished look.

Garage floor refinishing and polishing costs $3 to $10 per square foot for concrete resurfacing. You can also use other flooring types costing $1,500 to $4,500, like tile. But these materials require more upkeep and aren’t as durable to drive on.

Shelving & Cabinets

Basic garage organization costs $600 to $2,500. This price usually includes heavy-duty shelves, pegboards and storage for things like tires and tools. You can choose to upgrade some of your space with counters. When redoing your kitchen, consider using those old cabinets for garage storage.

EV Charging Station

Installing an electric vehicle (EV) charging station costs $500 to $1,000. As EV’s grow in popularity, it might help as a selling point. Having one in your garage also lets guests charge while visiting.

Driveways & Walkways

Driveway installation costs $2,300 to $6,500 on average. Costs for installing, maintaining and repairing depend on style and size. Detached garages add the need for an additional walkway from your home to the outbuilding. Walkway installs cost $1,800 to $5,000.

Base your budget on the type of materials you plan to pave with and the project's overall size. Different materials work better in different environments. Consult a local driveway professional for the best type for your climate.

Garage Conversions

Remodeling a garage costs $6,000 to $22,000 on average. Remodels tend to include finishing walls, installing storage, adding new floors and putting in windows. You may also want HVAC, plumbing or electrical lines for a shop or bathroom.

Extending or Adding to a Garage

Building an apartment over a garage costs $175,000. But just extending a garage and adding another stall costs $10,000 to $25,000.

Carports

Carports costs $3,500 to $9,500 on average. Carports forego the walls for a simple roof. Popular in areas with regular hail seasons, they protect your car from damage.
