Messy garage in Harrisburg, PennsylvaniaWe Have Too Much Stuff

I HATE CLUTTER!   When our business included garage organization, it drove me CRAZY when homeowners wanted everything in the garage to be in plain sight (via wall mounted organizers, slat wall, etc.).   Personally, I always tried to get them to get rid of everything that was unnecessary and place the rest in cabinets.

Posted by Mike Mincemoyer on Dec 9, 2014 3:00:00 PM

Epoxy Coatings in this Dillsburg garage don't knock off the chill.

If you live in our Pennsylvania service area (especially the State College area), you probably get tired of going out to the garage and getting into a COLD vehicle.   Our garage floor coatings work great, but the coatings don’t change that cold feel.   But, there are many affordable options to make the garage more enjoyable in winter.

I’m going to discuss the 3 most common solutions I have seen over the past 10 years.   Each solution can be scaled to the size of the garage.  Some are easily installed as a Do-It-Yourself solution, but homeowners should heed all requirements from the heater’s manufacturer.

Posted by Mike Mincemoyer on Aug 5, 2014 10:30:00 AM

In prior blogs, I’ve discussed how to get ready for a garage coatings and I’ve quickly addressed how to approach a garage makeover.   In the next X articles, I’m going to take a deep dive into the garage makeover process.   Whether you are just giving the garage a quick tune-up or a complete overhaul, these will help guide you to the best possible outcome.    If you are getting ready to build a new garage, I’d encourage you to keep reading – I’ll help you avoid the mistakes that I (and many others) have made.

We’ll approach this garage makeover project from every angle, not just coatings.   Before we became “flooring only”, we used to install garage cabinetry and organizers, so my approach and guidance is based upon 7 years of being a designer.
