So I've been checking out Garage Flooring Garage Cabinets Organizers Floor Coating and their systems quite a bit for the last few weeks. I work at home a lot and am thinking of upgrading my garage to clear out all the junk, make some storage, and most importantly, make some nice workspace. I have a huge 4 car garage so there is ample space. Has anyone used Premiere Garage and can comment on their quality? I've heard nothing but good things about them, but I wonder about the cost vs. quality/durability of their cabinets, floor system, etc.? Any one upgrade their garage?

Here's what we did-and the total cost was $900 w/labor. We have a 3 car garage and used one wall and bought the 6 panel closet doors ($40 ea.) and now have 4 beautiful closets out there with adjustable shelves and everyone raves about them.

I would not have anything but metal shelving in my garage. If you hunt around at auctions or garage sales, you will find metal shelving or pallet racking for a fraction of the cost of these fancy systems. They may not be as pretty, but neither will your pressboard shelves and cabinets after a few years of humidity, rain (oops left the garage door open), chemicals etc. What most people store in their garage is lawn and garden equipment and chemicals, fuel, chemicals, bicycles, bird seed, oil, paint and other yucky stuff. That use is not compatable with fancy cabinets (especially not pressboard). If you store only soda, beer and wine, roller skates and toys then those pretty shelving units may be great for you. The pretty stuff will do more to increase the vaule of your home than practical metal shelving. People buying homes are not thinking practically. They are usually thinking "ohhh pretty!".

Do you want a garage to show people, or a garage to work in? If the latter, be practical and figure out what you will be doing in there and buy shelving and workspace that meets those needs.
