Garage Conversions

A full or partial garage conversion can be a fantastic way to increase the space in your home without increasing the overall footprint of the property.

 

Not only does a garage conversion allow you to make much better use of existing space without the need to extend, but it is also a project that creates minimum disruption to your living conditions whilst work is underway.

Another benefit of a garage conversion is that, in the majority of cases, you can convert your garage using permitted development rights.

 

Garage conversions do require building regulations approval. This is to ensure the construction of the conversion meets requirements surrounding ventilation, thermal conductivity, and fire performance.

 

Costs:

 

A basic integrated garage conversion will cost from around £9,000.
This is far less than the value you could add to your home by converting the garage and increasing the overall living space.

 

Certain factors will have to be taken into account before undertaking a garage conversion project and the following items could affect the overall cost of the conversion:

  • the foundations might be poor and require reinforcement
  • the floor level may need to be reduced in order to fit insulation and meet current regulations whilst keeping the floor height level with the existing property
  • the ceiling height might need to be raised for headroom
  • The roof might need replacing if the garage is stand alone or attached to the side elevation for the property.
