Garages are considered to be an extra amenity for many homeowners and recently, the trend to bring them back has bloomed. Garages can be used for extra storage, to park ones vehicle out of the elements, or even as a workspace. Deciding what type of garage, attached or unattached, is a matter of preference, area available, and how the value of each type will effect the value of the home. An attached garage takes advantage of sharing pre-existing structural features, such as walls, electricity and heating and cooling. This can save some money on the construction aspect of an attached garage. Detached garages, however, usually allow room to expand the structure if needs change.
