Kathryn Z. in Emeryville, CA

"I highly recommended working with Alex--his work exceeded my expectations. We wanted a staircase built to a small storage loft above our and to, have the loft space extended. He listened to us describe the addition we wanted and what materials and aesthetics we were going for, and turned that into a perfect design. He was collaborative and open to our choices and suggestions, and had excellent taste in all of the suggestions and choices he made as well. The finished product is better than I even hoped it would be--his execution and craftsmanship are incredibly impressive. I would hire him again in a heartbeat--in fact, we hope to work with him again in the near future! "

Ken W. in Hayward, CA

"I brought in Red Door Restoration for a garage / home office remodel after sitting down with multiple contractors. What put them at the top of ...the list was how well Z was able to listen to what I was envisioning and turn that into a solid design. This being the first big project that I hired a contractor for, I wasn't sure what I would be in for. Z was able to explain the process clearly, point out items that I might not have considered and even pass along some construction tips along the way. Fortunately, it doesn't stop with Z. Eric, Josh, and the rest of his team are all talented professionals that made this an overall great experience. I would highly recommend Z and team for any of your contracting needs. "

Jeffrey C. in Berkeley, CA

"Robert was very responsive and professional in every aspect of my 200 sq ft project. Budget was on point. Crew was great. The attention to A ...detail in finish was amazing. fine abstract multi color stucco resulted in an almost diamond like quality on the exterior of the building. The interior includes 15 ft ceillings that make the little space really open up with skylights and an exposed frame. Super comfortable as an office / play room for the kids and their friends. I highly recommend Robert and his team at GC Raymond. Looking forward to working with them again "

Michael S. in San Mateo, CA

"The remodel of our 1950's era home remodel was just completed and we could not be happier with the result and experience working with Ron ...HQR/Ron. The experience brought to the project, his overwhelming positive attitude, availability and proactive response to issues that came up (as with any project) were attributes that made the difference in our remodel. One of the attributes we came to value was Ron's approach to mid-project plan changes; they were handled with minimal, or no impact to the process or schedule. His constant comment was that at the end of the day, he wanted us to be happy with the remodel result and experience with HQR, we came to realize was sincere and his actions mirrored that commitment. Communication, work quality, schedule, professionalism and obviously cost were all important factors in our initial search for our remodel project. Fortunately for us all our criteria were met or exceeded by HQR. Finally, we are way beyond pleased with the results of our remodel! Our old house looks amazing now! The difference for us is just overwhelming! Thank you HQR!! "

Ideas & Inspiration from Oakland Addition & Remodeling Contractors

Oakland Garage Remodeling

There are many reasons for garage remodeling in Oakland, and with one of the most diverse communities in the nation, Oakland garage remodels are likely to be almost as varied as its population. Depending on your particular situation, you may need additional parking space, more storage space, or you may simply want to optimize the space you already have. More involved garage remodeling projects can even convert the space into a bedroom, home office, or even a separate apartment. No matter what purpose your garage remodel will serve, knowing your options and taking the time to plan are two things that will make the project a success.

Organization Options
In many cases, Oakland garage remodeling is done simply because using the space for its intended purpose of housing a vehicle has become difficult due to excessive clutter. Many homeowners have found themselves in the situation of lacking storage space in the main house; an obvious, though ultimately ineffective, solution for this scenario is to turn the garage into a storage area for everything that doesn't already have a specific, designated space to occupy. Over time, lack of organization in the garage can easily create so much clutter that fitting a vehicle in your garage is impossible.

If this describes your current situation, there are a few things you can do to fix the problem. While off-site storage or transferring the clutter to an attic or basement might work in a pinch, utilizing well-designed storage equipment in your garage is probably a better place to start. Oakland garage remodeling contractors should be able to take advantage of your existing space and reduce the amount of clutter without significantly altering the structure of your garage. Often, room can be found on walls or below ceilings that can be used effectively by simply installing the right storage equipment. Some handy homeowners may even tackle this type of remodeling project themselves.

More Involved Remodels
While reorganizing is a solution for a large segment of homeowners' garage woes, some situations will require more involved garage remodeling. Oakland homeowners looking to increase the size of their garage to accommodate another vehicle may also want to look into adding new flooring or built-in cabinetry and shelving. The advantages of flooring options such as rubber tile and epoxy coating are well known in commercial garages, and can make your garage more attractive at the same time as making it more functional. Well designed built-in cabinets and shelves can often reduce clutter and save space better than free-standing storage equipment. This could even end up saving you some money by reducing the amount of additional space that will have to be built to house an extra vehicle!

Converting Your Garage into Living Space
In a relatively mild climate like the one found in Oakland, garage remodels can be taken to yet another level by turning the space into a living area. Garage conversion projects can get extremely complex and will require hiring a professional in nearly every case. This kind of work is generally going to require rewiring, more insulation, a significant amount of weather sealing, and alteration of the actual structure of the garage. In certain cases, garage conversion will also require reworking plumbing and ductwork. If you want to convert your garage into a bedroom, living area, or separate apartment, you may want to hire a general contractor rather than a garage renovation contractor, as they might be better prepared for a job of this nature.
