"John, a director of Affordable Garage Carpets says the garage is now likely to be an extension of the home, not a room where you keep the door closed.
"Carpet in the garage becoming a must-have, rather than a luxury item," John says. "The older generation took a little longer to come around to the idea, but that's changed now as they have seen it laid in friends' houses. Carpet not only makes the garage more useable, it also hides the paint splatters that tradespeople leave behind when a house is finished.
"And because the garage looks and feels like a room of the house, the kids are happy to hang out there. You don't need to worry about kids with allergies or asthma because the carpet stops all the usual dust that accumulates in the garage, and it can be vacuumed."
John also says the elderly appreciate the non-slip benefits of a garage carpet. "So many people have their laundry in the garage today, and there's nothing better than being able to walk in your socks into a clean, dry and warm laundry area."
You can expect to pay around $1000 to carpet a double garage, and about $500 for a single garage."

Garage Carpet Edging .....The Low Down

Affordable Garage Carpet Auckland

We offer two different types of edging with our carpets :-)

Black Rubber Edging - This is butted up to the front edge of the garage carpet and glued down onto the concrete. It creates a smooth clean line to complete the install.


Aluminium Edging - This is installed along the front edge of the carpet but overlaps the carpet edge. Holes are then drilled into the concrete and the edging is screwed down into the concrete. A thin rubber strip is then placed over the screws to finish the install. This edging is a superior, durable option. Definitely recommended if you intend to use your garage to park the car in as opposed to all the other uses our garages have!

Insulation - How does it benefit my garage?

Affordable Garage Carpet Auckland

Insulation is often only thought of during the colder months, but did you know it is also great in the warm weather for keeping the garage cool?
The garage door insulation is installed using a 100% polyester product within the cavity of the sectional garage door and sits flush with the metal uprights.


Ceiling insulation is installed between the ceiling joists and comes in a range of different thicknesses (R values).


In Auckland we see a huge increase in people using garages for additional living space, offices and bedrooms. By insulating it you are creating a safe and warm area to be enjoyed all year round :-)


Please feel free to ask us if you have any questions.

Go on ....... Declutter Your Garage In 10 Easy Steps!

Affordable Garage Carpet Auckland

We come across garages of all shapes and sizes but the common theme amongst them all is they are a well over used storage area that often becomes a dumping ground.
Here's our ten step programme to help you declutter your garage and make it a more useable space:


Ingredients:


Rubbish Bags

We come across garages of all shapes and sizes but the common theme amongst them all is they are a well over used storage area that often becomes a dumping ground.
Here's our ten step programme to help you declutter your garage and make it a more useable space:


Ingredients:


Rubbish Bags
Marker Pen
Drink (alcoholic if its after 12pm and you're not driving to the dump!) Snacks (unhealthier the better, you're going to burn loads of calories)
Radio or stereo with some great tunes
Trailer or skip (optional)
Storage containers
Broom
Mates (optional but highly recommended to help you)


Steps:


1) Choose a fine day with no rain forecast (almost impossible in Auckland right?!)


2) Move everything out of the garage and create piles outside with signs (ie Dump, Charity, Mum and Dad's house etc)


3) Ring your kids and tell them they have 2 hours to collect all the stuff you've been storing at your place since they left home!


4) Be ruthless and throw out as you go. If you haven't used it in the last 12 months you aren't going to. Don't kid yourself, you're not going to start cleaning your car now if you haven't done it in over a year! (Your poor car, but at least there will be room for her in the garage now)


5) The items that are staying, group together (ie sports gear, automotive gear, gardening tools, pet supplies)


6) Use your storage containers if and where possible. Label them clearly so you can see at a glance where things are located. Cupboards are great as well.


7) Sweep out or vaccum if you already have garage carpet. If you don't, call us while your garage is empty and we will carpet it for you within the day! If you tell us you saw our "De-clutter" post we will give you a 10% discount :-)


8) Put everything back into the garage in a orderly fashion. Try to keep the theme and put similar things near each other.


9) Sit down on your clean garage floor and give yourself a pat on the back!


10) Send us your before and after photos and be in to win the prize for Best Transformation!
