Newmarkengin…, Home Buyer in Poughkeepsie, NY

rough estimate to remove a garage door and replace with a wall and window ?

Asked by Newmarkengineer, Poughkeepsie, NY Fri Oct 14, 2011

Buying a home in dutchess county and was curious as to cost to convert a garage door into a wall with a window to use as a workshop. I am indecisive between making an offer on two homes. One home has a crawl space and a garage i can convert to a shop the other has finished basement i can use. any ball park figures to give me a general idea would help thanks.

Hi there newmarkEngineer
This may sound basic, but make some calls to local contractors.
I am sure they can give you hard numbers.
But more important is all the legal stuff, permits, etc
Also at resale, a garage always has value
Make sure you can convert it back to a garage door if necessary
Just ideas. Good luck

Anna is correct, this project would require a permit and may not be acceptable. Just go to your local building department and speak to a Building Inspector.

Before considering the removal of the garage door/wall replacement, do check with your local buiding's department regarding any possible permits; for an accurate picture of costs, do acquire free estimates from local licensed contractors...
