Why not Convert Your Garage in Fleet?

Garage conversions and planning permission in Fleet

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

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 is highly recommended to check your house deeds to see if your house is subject to any restrictive covenants which only allow your garage to be used as a parking area because if that is the case they will need to be discharged. In Fleet you would also require formal approval to alter the use of a detached garage.

By putting together any design sketches and asking for approval from householder planning, you will still be able to convert your garage even if your pd rights have been revoked. Excluding design fees, the cost for that will be £500. By completing and submitting an application to householder planning, you would be covered should you desire any major structural changes during the conversion. 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.

Building regulations in Fleet and garage conversions

By changing your garage from a storage and parking area you would have to meet the building regulations. Sometimes when undertaking a complicated conversion, it is recommended to have complete structural plans drawn up before you begin.

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. Within your conversion the key areas a building inspector will be interested in include electrical and plumbing, fire safety (including escape routes), structural protection, damp proofing, ventilation, insulation and energy conservation.

Garage conversion key works and considerations in Fleet

Garage conversions cannot begin until the walls and roof have been completely sealed and made watertight, so this is the first step. Our first class team of builders and tradespeople will then conduct the majority of the conversion work inside the existing garage.

The first step in a quality garage conversion is to strip back the main structure to see whether they could be any unforeseen issues such as at foundations or any problems with the walls. It will be necessary to cover these areas during the conversion

  Checking the existing floor

Normally, the concrete floor within a garage can withstand any kind of general domestic use. However, concrete floors often make the room to cold so it may be necessary to level them, damp proof them with an acceptable membrane, and insulate them to increase the temperature and retain heat within the conversion. Our expert team of engineers are highly adept at insulating garage floors in a way that will simply place them on the same level as the floors of the main house.

How can we convert your basement?

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. By installing a cavity drain membrane system, our specialised team of builders will ensure that your basement has a regulated drainage system. With minimal planning and disruption a cavity drain membrane system can be installed to regulate your basement drainage.

  • Should I infill 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. To grant you extra peace of mind we will carefully evaluate the foundations of the garage to decide if they need any extra modifications to deal with the additional load of the new conversion. Our innovative team of designers will carefully assist you to, for example add windows or a glazed access door to the conversion which can increase the natural light in the room and also lighten the load placed on the foundations.

  • Wall insulation

    If your property has an integrated garage, it is highly likely that the walls will not require any additional work. By erecting a stud wall with timbers so there is a wide enough space to place installation, your attached or detached single skin garage can easily be internally insulated. Our experts builders can also blow insulation into the gap of cavity walls which allows you to preserve all of the internal floor space within the conversion.

Insulating your roof

By placing 270 mm of mineral wood with a pitched covering hundred millimetres between the joists and extra wall on top, we can easily remove a garage roof at loft level. By insulating a roof at the rafter level, we can create a warm roof system in which we would also generally use rooflights.

Sometimes it can prove difficult to prevent condensation from entering a flat roof however our competent builders can ensure this will not happen by placing rigid insulation between and under the ceiling joists. Our industry professionals can assist you in maintaining the height of your conversion by using slim multi-foil or polysocyanyiltrate (pir) products

Garage Conversions

What kind of doors and windows can I install?

It is very important when selecting doors and windows that you ensure they meet the appropriate full unit u values (1.6 w, m2k for windows, 1.84 doors), provide sufficient ventilation, meet safety regulations, and suit your decor. Operating regular units can also be a cost-effective solution Casements sashes and door sets can be installed into the wall by punching a suitable hole and inserting lintels as desires

The opening into the main house from the garage can also have any kind of door installed using our innovative design techniques. A reinforcing steel beam may be required for larger spans allowing for a more open plan feel. This kind of work can involve a structural engineer to make calculations. However if you have an integrated garage it is possible that a developer may decide that there are restrictive agreements which must be addressed prior to you beginning your conversion.

It is required by law that any habitable room which doesn’t have an exterior door must have an escape window. Our dedicated team of professionals can guarantee that any escape window fitted will comply precisely with industry and safety regulations.

Garage Conversions

  High-quality heating and electrics installation

We can provide highly trained industry professionals who can self-certify their work under part p of the building regulations, to install any kind of heating and electrical system necessary. Your consumer unit and boiler may have to deal with an additional load due to the addition of new electrical circuits and heating loops in the conversion.

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 Effective led downlights are a good choice for lighting, as they can easily be built into the new ceiling structure Heating wise, plumbing will be the cheapest solution in a suitably sized radiator but slimline underfloor heating is a sleek alternative that can maximise floor plan and free up wall space.

It is essential that we ensure that the drainage system and hot and cold water source are installed successfully if you are planning a kitchen or bathroom in your conversion. Another main problem here is ventilation To avoid any buildup of humidity in a bathroom or kitchen within your conversion, our specialist builders would advocate the installation of a powerful extractor ventilator.

Price range for garage conversions in Fleet

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. You can expect to pay in the region of £15 to 25k plus vat for one garage, a simple garage conversion.

What works can be included in this estimate?

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

Once my conversion is completed, will i receive a building control certificate?
