Resurfacing your garage floor is a great way to add value and beauty to your home. From an epoxy finish to a custom seal, resurfacing projects can truly transform your garage. Of course a key element to starting any garage floor remodeling job is to begin with a clean slate. This means that all items, including cars must be removed from the garage floor so resurfacing work can be completed. So what happens if you have too much clutter standing in the way of your desired project?  Try storage.

Whether you choose an epoxy finish or a traditional concrete finish, resurfacing a garage floor requires a certain amount of setting time where the garage floor must remain untouched. In some cases, a complete garage resurfacing can take anywhere from a few days or a week, to a month, depending on how involved the garage remodel is. This is where a storage unit can really help out.

Storage will help you to take the time you need to make sure your garage resurfacing project is completed correctly. Nothing is worse than finishing a floor remodel, only to discover that something must be redone. By having your items completely removed from your garage, you can get a clear picture of how your garage looks, what areas need the most attention, and better control how your end result will turn out. Keeping items completely off of your garage floor will allow it to finish setting properly.

Storage offers you a place where you can temporarily store items from your garage, and begin your resurfacing project. With so many temporary, short-term storage options, it’s easy to find great deals on the storage space you need.

A good idea is to clear your garage out in sections, so that you are not overwhelmed by a variety of different items. Sort through items that can be stored and items that you must discard or give away. Since some items stored in garages often range from chemical lawn sprays to paint and auto related fluid, it is important to remember that storage units have strict policies against storing any items that may be hazardous, flammable or toxic in nature.

Items that can be stored range from boxes of tools, garden equipment, bicycles, skis, surfboards, rafting equipment, tents, shovels, and a variety of items that are often stored in your garage. An added benefit to getting a storage unit for the resurfacing of your garage, is that it allows you to get rid of the clutter problem in your garage once and for all, especially if you have been avoiding cleaning out your garage for years. In fact, it may be helpful to keep your storage unit for a longer period of time, beyond your garage remodel, so that you can keep clutter at bay throughout the changing seasons of the year.
