    Garage Conversion Specialists

    With modern cars getting bigger and houses getting smaller, more garages are turning into wasted space which are too small to easily park the family car. This often leads to garages being filled up with all sorts of junk and useless memorabilia. So, if you can park your car in the street or driveway, don't let this valuable space go to waste! Converting a garage is often a cost effective way to add space and extra value to your home. A well-made garage conversion can be another lounge, an extra bedroom, a second bathroom, a play-room or used to extend an existing room such as a kitchen. The most popular garage conversion is to create another lounge, particularly valuable as the children get older.

    Planning permission is not usually required for a garage conversion, providing all the work is internal and the building is not enlarged. However you should contact your local planning authority before proceeding as there are some exceptions.

    Garage Conversion Average Cost

    One of the first things to consider is the cost of converting your garage, one of the most popular questions we get asked is "how much does a garage conversion cost"? The price of a new garage conversion will depend on a number of different factors such as the size of your home (if garage is attached), the type of conversion you are looking for and the specification of the conversion (ie do you want an external window, plumbing and electrical work, heating, external door etc).

    However, there are ways of converting your garage within most budgets, by keeping the specification basic and looking at cheaper materials. For a typical UK garage conversion, expect to pay around £10,000. This average price will include any building regulations and planning permissions applications required, insulation and damp-proofing, basic plumbing and rewiring, along with finishing the interior with wall plastering and flooring.

    Choosing A Builder for your Garage Conversion

    Many builders claim to be jacks of all trades and capable of all building work, however garage conversions require a certain level of skill and experience. So, when choosing a builder to convert your garage, try and find a builder that has converted garages before, even better, choose a builder that specialises in garage and outbuilding conversions. Use the free service provided by MyJobQuote to provide details of your conversion project and have recommended builders near you get in touch with quotes and estimates.

    Ask for references from their previous garage conversions and check they have passed building regulations, then check with previous customers to see if the references are genuine and they were satisfied with the work and the general conduct of the tradesman on the job. Also when comparing quotes from tradesman ensure you are comparing on a like for like basis by checking that the specification is exactly the same in terms of ventilation, vapour barrier, floor insulation, materials, plumbing, any electrical work and if VAT is included.

    We are a building business covering a variety of trades including general maintenance, roofing and ground work. We have a great work ethic and will try our best to accommodate your needs.
