If getting your garage organized is on your to-do list, consider a heavy-duty system designed like the ones you see hanging on the walls at stores. The StoreWall system is designed to carry heavy tools and equipment, and the components can be rearranged to accommodate different size objects as the need arises.
The storage system is designed around galvanized metal strips attached vertically to the wall studs with fasteners. Panels fit into the strips horizontally, creating a grooved edge for attaching shelves, baskets and hooks, as well as other accessories.
A carpenter will charge $540 to install 30 square feet of wall storage with two shelves and hooks, which includes the labor and storage components. If you have basic carpentry tools and experience, you can buy the components for $480 and do it yourself, pocketing savings of 11 percent.
That sums it up. Knowing the average cost to install a wall storage system lets you compare doing it yourself with what you can expect to pay a contractor. For a local cost input your ZIP Code.
