DETACHED GARAGE COST
How much does it cost to build a garage in Calgary?
Garages can vary in price based on size, style, the slope of the property and quality of materials used. A well-built double-car garage in most cases will cost between $32,000 - $38,000.
In addition to the specs of the garage, other determinants of price include the current cost of materials such as lumber and concrete. Material prices can fluctuate throughout the year and can result in changes in price of the garage. Time of year also has an impact on price for other reasons. More projects are completed in the summer months, meaning demand for product and labour can be higher during busy periods. Garages can be built in the cooler months, but will requires winter heat in order to pour the concrete, and this can add to the cost.
It's important to understand cost vs price. A well-built quality garage may cost you a few dollars more, but it is worth it to avoid many of the potential issues that could cost much more in the future, both in terms of money and stress. What may be priced lower today, may cost you in the future. Your garage is an investment into your property and should not be something where the cheapest option is the best option. Ensure you are getting the best quality that will last and you will sleep comfortably knowing you made the right choice.
