How Do You Use Your Garage?

By converting your garage to provide additional living space for your family, you will be using a space that most people simply never consider. Our team of expert designers and builders will be able to provide you with a superb garage conversion that meets your exact specifications.

Consider what currently you are using your garage for

Over recent years vehicles have grown in size and unfortunately the size of our living spaces have decreased. It used to be the case that the family vehicle could not be out in inclement weather. Modern car design has meant that garage parking is now not really necessary. As a consequence garages appear to transform into empty rooms, or they become overflowing with rubbish and unwanted belongings.

Most households clean everywhere but the garage space, meaning that they are normally full of memorabilia and other items that haven’t been cleared out for decades. With growing families and requirements for workspaces or larger living spaces, it is very common that extra space within your home would be a superb addition.

Will the Addition of a Garage Conversion Add Value to my Property?

Our extensive industry experience has shown that a garage conversion could add up to 20% to the value of your property. By performing extensive calculations, our expert team will ensure that your garage conversion works out as the most cost-effective way to add additional rooms to your property.

A conversion on a double garage is also very worthwhile as we can still leave you with half of the garage to use as you wish. By converting just half of your double garage we can ensure that not only do you still have a space to park your car, but you also receive the benefits of an extended living space.

Should You Consider a Bexhill Garage Conversion?

From discarded exercise equipment to outdated toys and memorabilia, most garages these days are wasting valuable space being crammed full of these unwanted items. It is no longer the case due to the galvanisation of modern cars that they need to be protected from the elements by being stored in a garage.

Garage conversions and planning permission in Bexhill

With the exception of changing the front of the garage or the installation of windows, the majority of work required for a garage conversion is conducted in-house

Garage Conversions

If your garage conversion falls within the ambit of permitted development (pd), you may not require planning consent in Bexhill. If your property was built recently there could be restrictive covenants within the deeds that require your garage to be used only as a parking area, it is possible to discharge this covenant however. It could be possible that your Bexhill property requires formal permission to change the designated use of your detached garage.

Our competent construction team may need to assist you in asking for approval from householder planning if by any chance your pd rights have been revoked. The cost would be £500 with any additional design fees as extra. You would be required to submit a completed application if your project involves any major structural changes to the exterior of the property. If you have adjacent neighbours or you reside in a listed building it could be that you will require listed building consents or party wall agreements to undertake a conversion.

Building regulations in Bexhill and garage conversions

Building regulations help to ensure within the industry that projects are undertaken and completed to the highest standards, your garage conversion would therefore be subject to these. Our team of expert designers can draw complete structural plans before we begin any complicated garage conversion to ensure that the project is completed exactly to your specifications.

Once we have completed detailed structural plans, our reliable team will pass them to building control to be inspected who will then make sure that your conversion conforms to all the regulations. It is highly recommendable that a building control officer or inspector looks at your garage conversion because they can give advice regarding a large number of issues such as damp proofing, ventilation, insulation, structural protection and many more.

Bexhill garage conversion key works and considerations

To prepare any garage for a conversion, the first step is to make sure that the walls and roof are completely sound and watertight. The majority of the work will then take place inside the existing garage.

The first task will be to strip the main structure, at which stage you get the clearest view of what’s in store yet including why you’re most likely to find unforeseen problems (such as patchy foundations or secret issues in the walls) that could add to costs. Here is a summary of the construction work required for your conversion

  Floor evaluation

An existing concrete floor could well be solid enough to accommodate general domestic use. However, to increase the temperature within the garage conversion, it may be necessary to level the floor, damp proof and insulate it. The floors of the main house are probably higher than those of your garage, which means that we can achieve full insulation of the garage floor and the result will simply raise the floor to meet the floor of the main house, producing a step free barrier.

Builders working in the basement conversion

You cannot successfully convert a basement unless the foundation is completely waterproof. As a basement is generally low in a property, it is very important to build it up to ensure that your new conversion is not affected by groundwater. In a normal drainage system moisture or flowing water passes behind the cone, this is why our meticulous builders will install a cavity drain membrane system. To an established structure a cavity drain system requires minimum planning and disruption

  • Changing the door

    Clients generally would like the existing garage door to match the rest of the house, so this could be achieved using masonry infill so that the wall matches the rest of the house. Our careful attention to detail during the design stage will allow us to assess whether the existing foundations need any modification to withstand the new loads. Not only will increased windows or patio doors in your conversion increase the light that can enter, it will also lighten the load placed upon the garage foundations.

  • Why should I insulate the walls?

    Usually integrated garages are designed to the same level as the main building, so the walls do not require improvements. Even if you have an attached or detached single skin garage, we can easily internally insulate it with the use of stud walls and timbers which are wide enough to place adequate insulation and an air gap. Buildings with cavity walls may have insulation blown into the gap, thereby preserving the space of the internal floor.

Will it be necessary to insulate my roof?

It is quite straightforward to remove the garage roof at loft level enabling our specialist team to place 217 mm of mineral words with a pitched covering, hundred millimetres between the joists and the rest on top to successfully insulate the roof. Our professional team can discuss with you the installation of a warm roof system which is insulated at the rafter level.

We are committed to delivering the highest quality conversion possible which includes ensuring that the roof does not allow condensation to enter which for flat roof will involve the installation of rigid insulation in the ceiling joists. It is often a concern that the conversion will decrease the height from floor-to-ceiling, however our innovative design techniques involve the use of slim multi-foil or polysocianyiltrate products which means that no height will be lost in the conversion process.

Garage Conversions

Doors and windows

The fenestration you choose will have to hit the appropriate full unit u values (1.6 w m2 k for windows, 1.84 doors), meet your safety standards, provide sufficient ventilation, and suit your home style. Operating regular units can also be a cost-effective solution Our sophisticated engineering techniques involve punching a suitable hole and inserting lintels to ensure the installation of casements, door sets and sashes to the highest standard.

The same is true of main house and garage openings One of our ingenious design techniques involves using a reinforced steel beam over a larger span to create a modern, spacious and open plan feel to your conversion. Because an open plan designed garage conversion may involve more structural adjustments, it could be necessary for a structural engineer to lend his expertise. Be aware of the possibility that if you have an integrated garage there may be restrictive agreements imposed by a developer which will have to be purchased before the conversion can take place.

If you’re building a habitable room that doesn’t have an exterior door, directly secured path, or its own door leading to the outside, then you have to have an escape window. Any escape window is required by law to have a transparent openable area of at least not 0.33 mm2, it should have a width and height of not less than 450 mm and should be installed in such a way that the bottom opens and creates an area that is not more than 1100 mm from the finished stage.

  High-quality heating and electrics installation

We would always suggest employing trained professionals to install any kind of heating and electrics infrastructure and to require them to self-certify their work under part p of the building regulations. You will most likely need new electrical circuits and heating loops which will place additional loads on your consumer units and boiler

It may be necessary to upgrade your devices to deal with the new electrical circuits and heating loops which could also potentially raise the total budget by £2000. Our attention to detail means that we want to ensure that your conversion is well lit by installing effective led downlights. It will be very straightforward for a plumber to install a radiator in the new conversion however to maximise the interior space we would also suggest the installation of slimline underfloor heating

It is sensible to bear in mind that if your conversion will include a kitchen or bathroom, the drainage and the water source will need to be dealt with It is important to bear in mind that it is difficult to ventilate a kitchen or bathroom in a conversion The issue of ventilation with regards to a bathroom or kitchen can be easily remedied by the installation of a powerful extractor ventilator stop

Frequently asked questions

Why convert my garage?

The following are important considerations when deciding whether to convert your garage Always an important consideration before undertaking any construction project is whether the profits i.e. the added value to your home, will be higher than the spend. A great person to consult is a trusted local estate agent.

Another very important consideration is how much extra space you will receive in comparison to the amount of money you will spend. If you require more space then at some point you may need to move to a new house, a garage conversion is a much cheaper option than this. It is also good to be aware that your council tax may be affected because of your garage conversion. Check the added cost before you proceed

Will my garage conversion require planning permission?

Our extensive industry experience has shown that generally planning permission is not required if you want to convert your garage

But we still encourage our customers to contact their local authority before the work starts to confirm if there are no covenants on your property or in the area where planning permission to convert your garage could be appropriate.

If there are any planning permissions that need to be acquired before work can begin, our professional team will be happy to take care of the nitty-gritty.

    • If the garage conversion increases your home beyond permitted development rights if you live in a listed building
    • If you live in a listed building
