Are you ready to finally finish the electrical system in your garage? Are you adding a garage stall? Are you tired of that cramped shop or hobby workspace? Do you have a welder or other large tools that you need additional electric power to use? Would you like to gain more floor space inside your house by relocating your washer and dryer? If so, the design professionals and licensed electricians at SME Inc of Seattle can help your vision become a reality.

Electrical work in garages can often be very cost effective. Access to electrical wiring spaces is generally good, and the main electrical panel for the house can be close by. If the electrical service happens to be at the other end of the house, an efficient solution can be to install a sub-panel in the garage. While this cost might be initially unanticipated in your budget, a sub-panel will greatly reduce the costs of future electrical work by lessening the work required by a residential electrician to install the electrical wiring.

If you are looking to increase the available floor space inside your home in a very cost effective manner, consider relocating some major appliances to your garage. Having your furnace and water heater in the garage will free up valuable space from a closet, and reduce the danger from carbon monoxide emissions (if you have gas appliances). Another option might be to move your washer and dryer into the garage. Again, this can open up valuable floor space inside your home for a tiny fraction of the cost of building an addition.

One of the most common reasons to improve the electrical wiring in your garage is to add a shop or other electrical power to support a hobby. Perhaps you have a welder that requires a 240v electrical circuit. Adding shop lighting fixtures can greatly enhance the usability of a work or hobby space. Adding additional electrical circuits to handle power saws, drills, and the like can reduce the "light dimming" effect and decrease the chance of overloading an electrical circuit.

SME Inc of Seattle's team of experienced residential electricians has the expertise to help make your garage vision a reality. From evaluating your current home wiring situation, to making electrical design recommendations, to suggesting appropriate electrical products such as plugs, switches, outlets, light fixtures, appliances, and other items, the electrical professionals at SME will help you make your garage remodel a resounding success.
