Smile New Home For my M3 - GarageTek Makeover

Neither my wife nor I have ever liked our garage very well, so earlier this year we had GarageTek redo it.

We are quite pleased with the result. As you can see in the pics, it is a small 3 car garage, and they were able to really make the space work very well for us by using the wall space and some ceiling lofts. One pet peeve of mine was the orginal concrete floor -- which was very slippery. Now with the GarageTek tile floor it is never slippery -- even when wet. Plus it is easy to see exactly where each car should be parked. Best of all the floor is powerwashable so it doesn not stay dirty for long (although in the picture you can the drywall dust that has blown in from the contractors working on hte driveway).

The GarageTek folks were easy to work with and the finished garage is exactly what were looking for. We would definatly recommend them.

Anyway, now my 'baby' has a nicer place to sleep -- and I dont have to worry about golf clubs or kids toys falling and scratching the M3, as they are securely attached to the walls.

Now, if someone could get my wife to stop asking to drive the M3 and get back in her X5 -- that would be good!

Sorry -- should have said something...

I have no affiliation with GarageTek. Just happy with how the garage turned out and thought others might like to see the finished result...

The plastic pieces were to protect the floor from the tires, but I don't use them any longer, they aren't necessary.
