Garage conversions are one of the most cost-effective ways of improving your home and adding value to your property and is also the least disruptive.
Garages are often too small to accommodate the size of cars many of us drive today and so remain empty and are just used as storage.
Why not transform this area into much needed living accommodation converting it into an additional bedroom, family room, utility room, dining room, play room or home office.
This type of conversion causes the least amount of disruption when adding additional space to your family home as most of the work is carried out inside the old garage space.
In most cases garage conversions do not require planning permission as they fall under ‘permitted development’ especially if you are not altering the structure of the building. However, it is always advisable to check with your local planning office.
In order to carry out a conversion your floor and ceilings may need to be raised or lowered in the garage as are often a different height to the rest of your property.
The garage door will need replacing with windows and you will need to decide what type of brickwork you would like.
Some clients prefer the bricks to match with the rest of the property while others choose something different to give contrast. In some cases customers will ask for the whole of the front of the property to be rendered.
Once the building work has been completed you will then need insulation, plastering, electrics and plumbing work, if applicable, carried out.
