Before & After: Garage Innovations
Oklahoma’s unpredictable weather patterns make last minute garage clean-ups, for vehicle protection, a near impossibility. Fortunately more and more Oklahomans are finding solutions with custom garage makeovers from Garage Innovations. Jason and Jennifer Johnson opened Garage Innovations in March of 2004 after a futile attempt to outfit their garage with storage cabinets. “Jason was interested in self-employment and while we were looking into different business opportunities, we began building a detached two-car garage for his woodworking hobby. We started searching the internet for garage cabinet ideas and discovered an untapped market in Oklahoma,” said Jennifer.
After further research, the Johnsons realized the potential an updated garage has in adding value to someone’s home. “The average house is worth approximately $80 to $100 per square foot and with the average garage being about 350 sq. ft, it makes the garages’ value around $32,000. Many homeowners park their $50,000+ vehicles in the driveway and use their garage for unorganized storage. That makes for some expensive storage space,” said Jennifer.
From floor to ceiling and beyond, the design experts at Garage Innovations work with customers to find the right solution to fit each customer’s need. Utilizing every avenue available, ceiling and attic storage can be a unique part of the upgrade process. “If our client has a storage problem or simply wants to take their garage to another level, we have a solution,” said Jennifer.
With a variety of product lines for cabinetry including steel, resin, powder-coated steel and wood cabinets, it’s simply a choice of size and color. Garage Innovations also manufactures their own cabinets, Simply Storage, with state-of-the-art machining equipment. Also multiple flooring solutions allow customers to choose a beautiful industrial-grade Liquid Granite Flooring or a creative durable Race Deck Flooring that reflects customer individuality.
Online testimonials indicate that customer satisfaction at Garage Innovations is truly guaranteed. “Jason and I love working with people and the smile on their face when we’re done is priceless. Compliments like ‘I can’t believe I can fit my car in the garage now’ are things we love to hear,” said Jennifer.
Perhaps the greatest compliment are their repeat customers and referrals. “When our customers move, they call us to outfit their new garage or to put cabinets or flooring in their businesses. We’ve done more than just residential garage makeovers. We’ve done airplane hangars, dental offices, car dealerships and veterinarian offices. With showrooms in OKC and Tulsa, customers have the ability to come in and look at our products firsthand,” said Jennifer.
