Since launching in in 2011, we have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of Calgary families on their basement developments and detached garages.
A detached garage is a great investment for any home. Having a detached garage adds both equity and usefulness to your property. Beyond providing shelter for your vehicles, a garage adds vital storage space making your home feel bigger. Furthermore, by separating your main-dwelling from the rear alley it adds a level of security and also privacy. A garage can also be used as an extension of your living space. Today’s trend is to use garage space to double up as work areas, man-caves, lounge areas or theatres, and of course work spaces.
Our professional team will execute your detached garage projects from permits to parking, and our educational approach will ensure that you get the right garage for you and your family!
At ReImagine Builders, our easy to understand packages let you know what to expect before we even meet. Our detached garage building packages include everything from design to concrete to construction and finish.
From there we can add on custom options to make sure that your garage matches the look of your home and has the special features that are right for you!
Our package pricing provides a perfect foundation for a starter garage and many of our clients build to those specs with no upgrades at all.
The most common upgrade that start to drive up the price are things like drywall/insulation, heating systems, Hardie Board/ stucco siding, epoxy floors and upgraded electrical requirements.
Some of these items can start to drive a project up into the $30,000s and sometimes our garages run into the $40,000s when clients choose to really go all out on the upgrades.
At ReImagine Builders, we simplify the detached garage building process by breaking up the tasks and addressing all aspects of your project with a regimented process.
The execution of this process sets us apart from our competitors and ensures that our customers receive the best possible garage construction experience.
We take care of all permits on our detached garage projects, and do not take on any projects without the necessary permits. Our standard garage packages will require a Building Permit and an Electrical Permit from the City of Calgary.

There is a lot of planning that goes into every detached garage that we build. At ReImagine Builders, our approach is to help educate you on the different options that will make your garage work for you and your family for years to come.
Will your garage just be used for parking the cars, or do you need it for storage or to use as a workspace?
Do you want your trusses running towards your home or towards your neighbors?
If you plan to use the attic space in your garage for additional storage, upgrading to storage trusses is a good idea.
Do you just need a few lights and plugs, or will you be running compressors or other machines that will require additional power?
Do you want a heater in your garage? Or do you want to run a gas-line in case you want to in the future?
Do you want to insulate and drywall for a warmer and more cosmetic finish?
We build a standard 2’ apron with every garage. Do you require additional concrete work?
Our standard wall height is 8’. Many clients choose to upgrade to 9’ doors do allow for a larger overhead door and more storage.
We include vinyl siding with all of our packages. Most clients want to match whatever is on their existing home, however some choose to have it different either for style or price considerations.
Do you want to give your garage concrete that showroom feel with an epoxy coating?
