My garage is a mess. Do I have to move everything for your team to install?

We will need all areas where the work will be performed clear. We will discuss this in more detail with the client at the time of estimate.

Will you come and remove my storage items and reinstall in a new home?

If you currently have Monkey Bar products we can give you an estimate for reinstallation at your new home. However, in most cases the value added to a home during resale is significant enough to make keeping them in place more valuable. It is also common that the product design will not fit with your new garage. All of this will need to be taken into consideration and we would be happy to discuss the options further with you.

What makes Dream Garage different than the other garage enhancement companies?

We don’t just sell and install storage products. We are Monkey Bar trained professionals here to help you determine the best designs to create your Dream Garage.

Why are the garage cabinets mounted up off the floor?

Garage Flooring

How soon can I get back into the garage once the garage floor coating is completed?

All our garage floors can be patched if damage does occur.
