Impact of COVID-19 on the construction and renovation field. COVID-19 has affected the world in many ways. 

But the construction and renovation fields were hit majorly, and the need for "renovation services" dropped drastically. "Renovation contractors" were of no need as well. But times have changed, and things have gotten better. Many factors are involved in making the cost of your garage project fluctuate. Factors include the area you live in, needed labor, the type of work you want to do to your place, the type of building you inhabit, protective measures you are willing to take, the time frame, and contingencies.



Due to some unforeseen effects of COVID-19, prices may fluctuate. There might be a shortage of supplies since the first lockdown in 2019. And due to the SOP, arranging workers at a reasonable price can be very challenging. Organizing labor to work in a group simultaneously can be impossible. And if they agree to work still, they are bound to be costly.

Nonetheless, ASASA constructions will try its best to facilitate you with the materials and supplies that suit your taste and satisfy you best—providing you with the best "renovation services" throughout Toronto. 

You can contact our "home renovation contractorsfor further details.


The Price of Adding a Single or Double Car Garage 

The approximate price of a turnkey single-car garage attached to your house with all the necessary details, like plumbing, insulation, etc., can be $52,000. This amounts to around $220 to $360 per square foot. The prices differ for a "bare-bones" garage, which is basically a simple garage structure excluding all the facilities provided in a turnkey garage. The cost of "bare-bones" lies between $200 to $280 per square foot. As for a turnkey double-car garage, that will cost approximately $123,000.


Installing a Room Above the Garage

When considering investing in a garage, owners also tend to think of adding a room above it. This increases the loveable and storage place in the entire vicinity, elevating the resale prices. This is most convenient for the owner as they can use it, and it will help them later on when/if they sell the property.



What will Add a Carport Cost? 

Adding a carport rather than a whole garage could seem to be more convenient if your budget is tight. But it would be finest if you remembered that it's only a roof for your car, with no walls or other facilities. Usually, the prices vary between $12,000 to $34,500, which will roughly cost around $90 to $120 per square foot.

Adding a Detached Garage. Can It be Cost Saving? 

That is actually true. Due to many reasons. One of the biggest reasons is that your home structure will not be necessary to keep in mind while designing it. Nevertheless, there are a number of disadvantages when opting for a separate garage. You should have enough property to build an entirely separate structure on it. It cannot be turned into a livable space if your needs change, as it's not attached. You must leave the house even in harsh weather if you need to access it. If you prefer to use your garage as an extra room, it's better if it's attached to the house.


Cost of a Building Permit

First order of business before planning your garage is to obtain a building permit from the city or town you live in. There will be documentation required from your house and property papers to further plans for your property. A certain amount of distance is required between your garage walls and your neighbors' walls, so ensure this before applying for a permit. The cost, however, really depends on the area you live in.


Costs for Having Your Plans Drafted by Professional Technologist or Architect

Whether you plan a garage with a room above it or without, it still qualifies as an extension to your home. You'll need a drawn layout of what you'll have us working with. For this draft, you will need the help of an architect or technologist. For a separate garage, prefabricated plans are available for purchase. The finest course of action is to ask the municipality what they require. If the city agrees to you having your plans drafted by a technologist, then the prices for this service may vary from $1,700 to $2,500. But if an architect's plan is required, the expected budget is $2,700 to $6,500 or even more. About 10% of your total cost is spent on this. 

To have acquired the plans, you are good to receive a permit from your city easily.

With all the formalities taken care of, you can contact our  "Home renovation contractors" and consider the job done!


Approximate Price of Sides, Windows, and Doors

Clients may consider this chance to add a garage as an opportunity to change or renew house accessories like sides, windows and doors. You have to plan your budget accordingly, of course. But the house is in a worksite anyways, so it can result to be rather convenient for said clients. 

The change of siding may cost around $60 to $70 per square foot. (materials and labor included). Prices may vary for reasons such as the siding material you have chosen for your home. And because of the COVID-19 situation, prices fluctuated for labor and materials. A PVC double-paned window costs between $11,000 to $16,000. For a bungalow harboring about 10 casement windows. Standard aluminum door costs $2,800 and could go up to $5,500. 


Costs for Dismantling an Existing Garage

To have a garage but want to demolish it and get a new one built is going to have you set aside about $2,200 to $4,500, just as the disassembling cost. The cost of disassemble fluctuates on factors such as the size of the garage that needs to be taken down if the area is accessible, the type of machinery used, and the material your garage is made of. We need to be cautious of hazardous materials etc. The amount of debris that will have to be cleaned up after the disassemble also affects the cost. And before demolition, a demolition permit will also be required. You should make it your job to follow safety protocols throughout the demolition process strictly.
