Bordon Garage Conversions

If you wish to greatly expand your living room, why not consider a highly cost-effective garage conversion? Because a garage is a pre-existing structure, a conversion can be much cheaper than an extension, which would involve building something completely new. Your garage may already have electricity, too. Designed with your existing property in mind, our garage conversions are based on a unique single storey design. Typically only used to store vehicles and other items, a garage is generally a space that people don't even consider converting. Elite builders London can be trusted to design and build the ideal garage conversion that will turn the space into something you want. We guarantee that your extension will be done on time, on budget and free you from the moving costs and hassle to get that extra room.

Are you really using your garage for anything important?

Over recent years it has become progressively more difficult to store large cars or vehicles in our properties.  The family car had to defend against the harsh weather years ago. Modern car design has meant that garage parking is now not really necessary. It is very likely that your garage is overflowing with rubbish and items that you don’t use.

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. Most households would definitely appreciate extra space within their property.

High quality garage conversions in Bordon and planning permission

For many integral or attached space garage conversions, our high quality design and construction is conducted in-house.

Garage Conversions

By undertaking most of the work involved in your garage conversion in-house, your conversion will be considered a permitted development and so planning consents will probably not be necessary. It may be necessary to discharge any restrictive covenants pertaining to your modern property, such as that the garage be maintained as a parking area. By changing the original use of your detached garage, you may be required in Bordon to apply for formal approval.

Don’t worry that you will not be able to follow a scheme if your pd rights have been revoked, we are on hand to help you put together well thought out sketches to ask for appropriate permission from householder planning. That would cost £500, plus any design fees. Any major structural changes that will be made throughout the building project, will require a completed householder planning application. Listed building consents (if you reside in a listed house) and party wall agreements with any adjacent neighbours are among the other permits you may need to obtain.

High-quality garage conversions and building regulations in Bordon

By changing the use of your garage, our skilled engineers will then need to ensure that the conversion is within the building regulations. 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.

Building control will look over your structural plans and will be able to confirm that there are within the building regulations, ensuring that the construction of your conversion also conforms to these regulations. By inspecting the key areas of the conversion construction a building control officer or authorised inspector can provide additional assurance that key areas such as ventilation, insulation and energy conservation, fire safety (including escape routes), are all built to conform with the building regulations.

Garage conversion considerations and key works in Bordon

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

By stripping back the main structure of the garage to expose the foundations and the walls, we can ensure that these can be strengthened primarily to avoid any unforeseen issues further down the line. 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. Thermal efficiency can be achieved within the new conversion by levelling the floor maybe with a self-levelling liquid screed, damp proofing it with an acceptable membrane (lapping into the walls dpc,), and insulating it. When insulating the garage floor, our sophisticated construction techniques will generally result in a slightly higher garage floor that can be integrated with the floor of the main house.

To convert my basement, what needs to be done?

You cannot successfully convert a basement unless the foundation is completely waterproof. Basements can be affected by rising groundwater therefore it is very important to ensure that your basement is built up to the maximum height of the area. Our expert design team will generally recommend a cavity drain membrane system which will fully regulate your basement drainage. To an established structure a cavity drain system requires minimum planning and disruption

  • Installing and infilling a new door

    Our industry professionals would generally suggest a masonry infill completed and bonded into the existing brickwork as a dependable option to replace the main garage door. Garage conversions can create additional loads to be supported by the foundations of the building, this will be carefully assessed during the design stage to ensure that your garage foundations can withstand it. As glass weighs less than brick walls, it is highly recommended that in the initial planning stage you include more glass.

  • Why should I insulate the walls?

    The walls of integrated garages are generally designed to exactly the same specifications as those of the main property, meaning that they will not require any extra improvement. We can internally insulate attached or detached single skin garages by using stud walls with timbers to ensure minimum disruption. Don’t worry about losing any precious floor space by insulating your walls as our skilled team can blow insulation into the gap in your existing cavity walls.

How can I insulate the roof?

It is a very simple process for our skilled builders to remove the garage roof at loft level. Our professional team can discuss with you the installation of a warm roof system which is insulated at the rafter level.

In order to prevent condensation, flat roofs must be equipped with rigid insulation between and under the ceiling joists, with a ventilation gap above. By using polysocianyiltrate (pir) or slim multi-foil products, our skilful team can ensure that you do not lose any floor-to-ceiling height.

Garage Conversions

Windows and doors for your conversion

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. If you are interested in keeping costs down, you can try to operate on regular units. Our professional builders can easily install casements, sashes and door sets by inserting lintels into a pre-punched hole.

The same is true of main house and garage openings By using, for example, a reinforced steel beam, our innovative team can help make your garage conversion feel more open plan. 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.

It is possible that within the conversion there will be a habitable room which doesn’t have an exterior door or directly secured path outside, we will ensure that there is an escape window as per building regulations. An escape window must have an openable area that is not more than 1100 mm from the finished stage, a transparent openable area of at least not 0.33 mm2 and should also have a width and height of not less than 450 mm.

Garage Conversions

Electrics and heating

The best way to get this infrastructure in place is by recruiting trained professionals to self-certify their work under part p of the building regulations. Providing heating and lights in your quality new conversion may result in some additional load being placed on your consumer unit and boiler

If your consumer unit and boiler need to be updated, it is possible that there could be up to £2000 extra added to the project budget Our attention to detail means that we want to ensure that your conversion is well lit by installing effective led downlights. A great way to maximise the space in your new garage conversion is to install slimline underfloor heating as opposed to radiators.

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 One possible problem here could be ventilation Our expert team will fit a powerful extractor ventilator should you wish to incorporate a bathroom or kitchen into the conversion, to deal with any humidity that may build up in the room

Will a garage conversion be expensive?

Each garage conversion is a different size and design so without visiting the property and going through the design in detail, it is difficult to provide an accurate quotation. Although conversion costs are difficult to estimate, £15 to 25k plus vat for a simple garage conversion is an accepted market price.

What works can be included in this estimate?

This price would include:

  • Dig footing to the front of the garage and supply and fit one 150×100 mm prestressed concrete lintel
  • Supply and fit window to match existing
  • Construct cavity wall in selected regrade to damp proof course with all brickwork above ground level on outer walls to match existing facing walls

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.

When will you need planning permission for a garage conversion?
    • 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
    • You are converting the space of business
    • Your council has restrictions on reducing parking

By ensuring that the exterior of the garage remains untouched, you can avoid these restrictions.

Will the conversion take a long time?
Common conversion will be completed in 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the specification involved.
Once my conversion is completed, will i receive a building control certificate?
