Custom Garage Builders in Chicago

Want to Add a Garage in Chicago? Contact Absolute Garage Builders Today!

If you’re considering adding a detached garage to your home, it’s essential to remember that this is a significant undertaking. Adding a detached garage is a lot more than just throwing up four walls, adding a roof and a door, and calling it good!

In reality, adding a detached garage is a project very similar to building a small house, and for it to be successful and provide functionality and curb appeal to your home, careful planning and execution are extremely important. From pouring the foundation to deciding on flooring, providing adequate insulation, and depending on your planned usage, good heating, cooling, and plumbing, superb professional assistance is crucial.

From Foundation to Roof, Expert Assistance is Only a Call Away!

Fortunately, for those in the greater Chicago area, the experienced, expert assistance you need is only a phone call or mouse click away at Absolute Garage Builders. We build garages in Chicago and its major suburbs, and we’re ready to help you with your garage-building project from conception to completion!

We invite you to call us today to speak to one of our highly qualified construction experts about your needs and your plans for a detached garage. We’ll gladly answer all your questions and work with you on deciding on important essentials like flooring and cabinets.

Finally, once we have a clear picture of precisely what you want in a garage, we’ll provide a CAD rendering of your new structure, so that you’ll know exactly what it will look like before the first spade of dirt is turned!

In other words, at Absolute Garage Builders, we take all the guesswork out of garage construction so that you can feel secure and confident in the investment you’re about to make.

Our Garage Plans

For Absolute Garage Builders, every garage is a custom project. As one of Chicago’s most experienced and versatile garage builders, Absolute Garage Builders has the know-how to make every garage unique and suited to meet each customer’s needs. Absolute Garage Builders starts planning your custom garage with a blueprint based on one of our five garage design plans, as well as the roof type and construction materials.

A Choice of Roof Type: 4-Point, 1-Point, Reverse 2-Point, I-Joist

  • 2-Point roof garage design — This option is the standard garage roof style. The triangular gable faces the road and is built to match the gables on the house.
  • Reverse gable roof garage design — One of the most common garage roof styles. The angle of the roofline slopes to the front and back of the garage. The gable ends face the sides.
  • 4-Point Roof — Often built for extra storage capacity and extra strength in windstorms. Several types are available.
  • I-joist garage construction — This design is ideal for the homeowner with extra garage storage needs. The strength of the I-joist wood beams in the floor allows the structure to support the weight of additional storage space above.

Roof Pitch

Roof pitch is the rise in inches for every 12 inches of the roof. In the first illustration below, figure 4 means the roof pitch increases by 4 inches for every 12 inches of the roof. The other pitch options illustrated are 6, 8, and 12 inches.

Garage Sizes

From each of these garage designs, Absolute Garage Builders can create a custom garage plan to meet your specific needs.

  • Any capacity – The sky’s the limit on the size of your garage. Whether the garage will hold only the family car and some lawn equipment or your entire classic car collection, Absolute Garage Builders can create a custom garage for you.
  • Any storage – If you can’t part with the family treasures but can’t store them in your house either, Absolute Garage Builders can create a garage plan that will allow you to safely tuck them away. If you have recreational vehicles that need to be stored off-season, Absolute Garage Builders can create a garage to keep your “toys” secure until you’re ready to use them again.
  • Any style – Absolute Garage Builders will help you select a garage design that will complement the appearance of your house or other existing structures. We can also expand an existing garage with matching materials and styles.

Whether building a new garage or enlarging an already existing garage, Absolute Garage Builders helps you choose the right building material and colors and select the most functional garage door, as well as windows and pleasing exterior décor.
