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 scenarios will cost between $22,000 - $32,000.
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 to thaw the ground in order to pour the concrete. However, you should never build a garage on a frozen ground. This will cause the garage to shift and break as the ground thaws and cause major structural issues. Once the concrete is poured, the rest of the garage is ok to be build during the winter.
Not all garages are built equally. Many contractors offer to build garages at very low costs. Be cautious of what these contractors are offering and make sure everything is included. Often, these contractors will build with low quality materials and craftsmanship, or skip necessary steps such as installing a vapour barrier to prevent the external environments from rotting away your garage. Be cautious as these contractors may come back for more money later if they are over budget or leave the job unfinished. Some contractors are only specialized in one trade, but offer garage packages to generate business, and sub the rest of the garage out to the lowest bidder.
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.
