If you like your Richmond area neighborhood but would like more room or updated spaces in your house, consider an addition from LHC Services. Remodeling or adding new space gives you the opportunity to customize your home to fit your style and your needs. You may be able to repurpose your existing garage, for example, and build a new garage. Alternatively, if your house is newly built, LHC can construct a garage to match your home’s architecture while adding value, space, and convenience to your property.
LHC Services - Additions and Garages
Why choose LHC Services to build your garage?

What can we offer? Well, we feel there are plenty of reasons for you to choose LHC Services over other garage building companies in Richmond VA.
LHC Services — Approach to Home Additions
Like any home project, an addition starts with a plan. As you evaluate your options, it’s important to assess how much value the addition will add to your home. We’ll help you determine if your investment in new space will increase your home’s value accordingly. Spending $50,000 on an addition that only adds $30,000 in value to your home may lead you to revise your plan.
The LHC Services team will ask you several questions before starting our design work for your remodel or addition. These include:
• How much more space (square feet) do you want? Ideally, the size and scale of your addition should match or at least complement the structure of your current house. It’s tempting to go big with your wish list but having a space disproportionately large will diminish your home’s curb appeal.
• What will the space be used for? The cost of adding a new bedroom will be different from building a playroom for your children. Design elements such as doors, windows, ceiling height, and roof lines will reflect the purpose of the room and the present appearance of your house.
• Can we repurpose existing space like the attic, porch, basement, or garage to meet your needs? This approach may provide cost savings in materials, time, building permits, and project complexity. We may recommend additional square footage with this approach, but it will be a combination of remodeling and new construction to reduce project costs.
Our expertise with concrete means your garage foundation will be durable and stable. We have the knowledge to add electrical power, lighting, and outlets to your space. For larger garages, we can even incorporate plumbing and sinks for clean up or small 1/2-baths with toilets and showers. We’ll ventilate and insulate your garage, too, to meet building code standards and your needs.
Exterior materials can complement your home’s design and fit your budget, and roofing material including shingles, fascia, eave troughs, and soffits will match your existing house.

LHC Services – Tips for Garage Construction
Our initial focus with garages is on the design. It’s important to balance the size of the garage with the surrounding yard. Our approach blends the use of your garage to protect your vehicle(s) with additional uses such as workspaces and storage.
For example, the dimensions of a single-car garage would be 12 feet wide by 20 feet deep. If you want a workspace, we’d recommend an additional six feet in width or 10 feet in depth, whichever fits best on your property.
Another consideration is whether your garage is attached to your house or in a separate area. An attached garage may offer some cost savings but may add complexity depending on the structure of your roof and which area of the existing home is affected. A detached garage could give you more space but may cost more depending on your size requirements.
Although the Richmond area does get about one-foot of snow each year, you may want the cost-effective and simple option of a carport. Your vehicles will be protected from the weather, and we can incorporate some storage units within the structure, too.
Finally, we’ll explore the best height for your garage. Attached garages typically have the same roofline as your house. New construction can deliver more height for overhead storage or an additional living area like a loft. The LHC Services team will check with local building departments to understand regulations about size, design, and location of your garage.
LHC Services is the best, period. The main thing that compels me to recommend LHC Services is the fact that most of the employees here are so experienced and building a garage is just a cake to them.
My wife and I needed a garage and LHC Services delivered it. My wife and I were a bit skeptical at first but after talking to them, all of our doubts were gone. We just knew that they were perfect for this job. They just knew what to do and they did not disappoint us.
Before contacting LHC Services, I contacted other contractors in Richmond. But sadly none of them could live up to my expectation. They couldn’t answer some of the simplest of questions regarding garage building. I almost gave up. But after contacting LHC Services, I changed my mind and I don’t regret it.
Extremely impressed with the LHC guys. Just loved the way they went about their job. The company has some of the best people for the job and I was lucky enough to pick them. They did not do too much on the first day. They just asked some basic questions. The next day they just…
Well, to be honest, I didn’t really know anything about LHC. As I needed a garage desperately, one of my friends advised me to hire these LHC folks and I wasn’t disappointed. They were sincere about their job and I am extremely happy with the garage.
Overall speaking, they did a pretty good job. I was impressed by their approach. I wasn’t sure whether I should build a garage or not because I did not know anything about building a garage. This is where I am really grateful to LHC Services because no matter what kind of questions I had on…
