Below are segments of our latest audio testimonial. A homeowner west of Phoenix contacted us when he was planning to convert his carport to a garage.
Above are pictures before, during, and after the carport was converted in to an enclosed garage west of Phoenix. This carport-to-garage conversion was a pretty standard one (including the building of a single side wall plus framing off the front for the garage door). To learn more details about this project, plus why the homeowner is now so eager to recommend our garage builders, keep scrolling down.
Why convert a carport to a garage?
Q: What led you to contact us?
A: I'd been wanting a garage for well... for ever. I've got an old classic car and I've only had a carport. So I figured it would be time to get the garage fitted.
I just kind of googled "carport conversion in to garages" (on google) "in Phoenix" and you guys came up. So I gave you guys a call and the price was right, so that's why I gave you guys a call [another call] to get it done!
Converting a carport to a garage for added securityWhen Steve had first called us, he told us right away that he wanted the added security of a garage so that he could safely store his classic car (as well as his work truck). So, as he was thinking about how he could spend his tax refund in early 2017, he started to investigate the costs of enclosing his carport in to a garage.
If I recall correctly, he was hoping that the total costs would be small enough for him to pay for it all with his tax refund. However, he was a bit disappointed when he found out that his tax refund was not going to be as much as he hoped. Still, he really wanted a garage, plus, to keep costs down, he was willing to do some of the simplest parts of the renovation himself (such as painting the newly constructed garage to match the existing walls).
The week before the superbowl is when his story took a very unusual twist. One winter morning, he walked outside to get in his truck and drive to work (just like any other day). However, this day would not begin as smoothly as he expected....
(The short version of the story is just below. Or, you can hear him tell the whole two-minute version of the story by playing this audio: ).
Basically, his work truck was not where had had parked it. He called the police plus his boss (who told the auto insurance company) to report it as stolen. Quickly, there was new urgency for finding someone to enclose the carport at a price he could afford! He says he considers his neighborhood to be safe, but he definitely did not want his own classic car stolen. That would be much more heart-breaking than the work truck (that belongs to his employer) getting stolen. His motivation surged and he starting looking for a contractor in Phoenix to enclose the carport.
Why did he select our carport conversion contractors?
Q: One of the big factors in selecting to work with us was the price, obviously?
Q: Am I right that you contacted some other contractors about providing a conversion for you?
A: Yes, yes I did.
Q: ...Would you say a little bit about why you did not choose them?
A: The price wasn't right. They didn't seem... they didn't sound very professional. They were charging too much money and were very very pushy to get the job done when I hadn't made my mind up yet or not. So that's why I chose you guys over them.
Would he recommend our carport conversion contractors in Phoenix to you?
Q: If you knew somebody - anywhere in Phoenix, Peoria, or wherever it may be - If you knew somebody who was interested in enclosing their carport into a garage, how likely is it that you would recommend John?
A: 100 percent absolutely. I even told him I'd recommended him... for sure.
They did a incredibly good job... extremely fast. Some... They're very very cool people.
They did a great job. I was really impressed.
