--> Garage Conversion in PHOENIX: HEAR our 5-star reviews & get a bid!
Below is a 2-minute audio (plus transcript) in which Robin D. in Gilbert AZ explains why she is "very likely" to recommend our contractor who converted her garage to a stand-alone apartment for her mother-in-law and father-in-law. (For instance, she calls the estimator "straightforward" and "very knowledgeable.")

Because Robin is a very busy mom, her testimonial was quite brief. If you're interested, we also have several other audio reviews of other home owners in greater Phoenix who highly recommend Dane (after hiring him for renovations in their home). Two more audio reviews are on this home additions page (plus several other written testimonials below those two). If you'd like to hear even more, let us know and we'll email you more links.

Q: So what was it that led to your interest in having the garage converted (briefly)?
A: Our mother and father-in-law are moving in.
Q: Oh, Okay! Okay, so you knew that was coming at a particular near-future time?
A: Yes.
Q: Alright, I know from my notes (cause I talked to you late last year) you had got another estimate before you contacted us. Can you talk about why you selected to work with Dane?
A: Whoever I talked to... Dane... I guess?
Q: Yes, Dane... Chaffee.
A: Yeah, he just was very knowledgeable and straight-forward.
Q: Okay... my understanding is that you guys had a certain budget target and that there was a certain idea about how to cool the area and then that was modified based on a suggestion Dane made....
A: Oh, okay, yes. Yep, that was a good. Yeah, it all worked out.
Q: Okay, and he was able to reduce the overall cost to fit in to your budget. That's basically what I was told by him....
A: Yeah... we appreciated that!
Q: He said that you would probably tell me that you appreciated that, so thanks for making that note clear. Is there anything [else] that you noticed during the process that was notable about how things went?
A: No, just... everything was very straight-forward and I trusted Dane and felt we were in good hands... and everybody was very nice... Yeah!
Q: So if you knew somebody who was interested in having them do a similar conversion of their garage into a stand-alone studio or guest house, how likely is it that you would recommend Dane to them (if they were in greater Phoenix)?
A: Oh, I would very much... very likely.
Q: Okay, that covers the essentials of what I wanted to cover, so thank you for your time.
A: Awesome!

Our experience with garage conversions will keep the process simple and smooth

Save yourself from worry and stress by hiring a contractor that gives you confidence because of their experience with exactly the kind of job that you need. By the way, converting a garage to interior space (especially to a stand-alone apartment) is definitely not the same as building a standard home addition or a detached guest house!

Retrofitting the HVAC system, raising the floors, adding windows, and many other steps can be involved. Some of those steps will be unfamiliar to a typical general contractor in Phoenix.

So, you want to hire a garage conversion specialist who is familiar with the whole process. That includes getting the permit for your garage conversion, as well as building codes and inspections.

Normally, with new construction, the city building inspector will be able to visit the site at a few different stages of the process (including while the infrastructure is exposed and visible). Our experts not only know how to make the job of the code inspector easy, but they also have extensive experience dealing with insurance claims. How is that relevant? Our contractor is used to having to document each stage of the renovation process (to then get each stage of work approved by a bureaucrat). That can cause major headaches for the typical contractor, especially if they have to undo work then redo it.

Beware of getting surprised because of hiring someone who is inexperienced with converting a garage in to a home addition. You will want the project completed on schedule and on budget, right? Plus, you will be grateful that you hired an expert that does not get stressed over dealing with city inspectors, but knows exactly what to expect and how to keep the process "seamless" so that the homeowner can relax. You will know what to expect and when to expect it!

So, when you hire our experts to convert your garage in Phoenix AZ, we are committed that you will feel the interest and confidence of our specialists as we speak with you about your priorities and questions. It can be very exciting for you to see the conversion of your garage in to a home addition be completed so smoothly and quickly. You may also be quite relieved to find out how little the entire project will be. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
