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. If you have a growing family, or just need extra space, a garage conversion can be a very cost-effective and practical exercise providing you with a tailor-made solution to meet your exact needs.

We ask you to consider exactly what you are using your garage for day-to-day.

Our living spaces have grown progressively smaller over recent years therefore it can often be a waste of space to be keeping a car in a garage. Some years ago most people used to simply use the garage for storing their car. However as technology has advanced vehicles, the need for garage parking is now being regularly galvanised. It is highly likely that you are wasting the space of your garage by filling it with rubbish and other unwanted belongings.

Most people’s garage space contains items that they stored many years ago and have never found the time or motivation to remove. 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 a Garage Conversion Make my Property More Valuable?

By building one of our superior garage conversions, you are not only adding value to your home but also improving your living space in an extremely cost-effective way

Converting your garage and planning permission in Deal

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

Garage Conversions

As the majority of garage conversions are considered permitted developments or pd, it is not necessary to request planning consents in Deal. 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. In Deal 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for approval from householder planning, you will still be able to convert your garage even if your pd rights have been revoked. That would cost £500, plus any design fees. Large structural alterations such as changing windows, or incorporating an extension would require you to complete an application. 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.

Converting your garage and building regulations in Deal

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. Sometimes when undertaking a complicated conversion, it is recommended to have complete structural plans drawn up before you begin.

As long as the conversion is built according to the approved schematics of your structural plans, you can rest assured that the conversion is conforming to building regulations. Building control officers are also authorised to inspect ventilation, insulation, electricity, plumbing, fire safety (including escape routes), and many other important elements of your new conversion.

High-quality garage conversion key works and considerations in Deal

Our dedicated team of expert engineers will ensure that the walls and roof of your garage are sound and watertight before the conversion work will begin. Most of the work will then be conducted by our expert team, inside the existing garage space.

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. Our team will carry out the following during the construction process

  Floor evaluation

Unless there is a pre-existing structural problem, the concrete floor in your garage should be solid enough to accommodate whatever use you are planning for your conversion. 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.

What work will be necessary for my basement conversion?

It is very important to ensure that the foundations of a basement are watertight Our professional building team will ensure that your basement has been raised to the maximum area height in order to successfully cope with groundwater levels. In theory, in a regulated drainage system, a cavity drain membrane system allows moisture of flowing water to pass behind the cone. With minimal planning and disruption a cavity drain membrane system can be installed to regulate your basement drainage.

  • Changing the door

    The most popular route is to replace the main garage door with traditional walling matching the rest of the house, such as a masonry infill completely to and bonded into the existing brickwork. It is very important that the foundations of your garage can withstand the extra weight of the conversion, we will assess this thoroughly during the design stage. As glass weighs less than brick walls, it is highly recommended that in the initial planning stage you include more glass.

  • Insulating the walls

    Usually integrated garages are designed to the same level as the main building, so the walls do not require improvements. Attached or detached single skin garages may be insulated internally, typically by erecting stud walls with timbers that are wide enough to accommodate ample insulation (plus an air gap). 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.

Will it be necessary to insulate my roof?

At loft level, the easiest way to remove the garage roof is to place 270 mm of mineral wood which should be adequate with a pitch covering 100 millimetres between the joists and the rest on top. Not only can we install a warm roof system into your quality conversion, we can also include multiple rooflights which greatly increase the natural daylight.

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

Windows and doors for your conversion

It may seem obvious but it is very important to choose high quality windows with appropriate u values for your new conversion. By operating regular units you can keep costs down For the different varieties of door installations, we generally begin by inserting the desired lintels into a suitable hole.

This is also the case for the garage and main house access points. 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. Our wealth of experience in producing high quality conversions means that we understand that a developer may impose restrictive agreements prior to your conversion if you have an integrated garage, so we are on hand to help with this.

We will always fit an escape window into any habitable room that doesn’t have an exit to ensure that all building and safety regulations are being met. We can ensure that all building and safety regulations will be closely followed when installing an escape window.

Garage Conversions

Electrics and heating

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. It is possible that the new heating loops and electrical circuits required for the conversion may place extra load on your consumer unit and boiler

It is possible that we may need to update these devices to handle the extra load and depending on their make, this could cost up to £2000. We will also of course help you to design a lighting concept in your new conversion and many times will suggest led downlights as they can be integrated easily into the new ceiling Our talented design team are committed to maximising floor space within your quality garage conversion, which is why we would suggest using slimline underfloor heating instead of radiators.

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. 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.

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?

Throughout the whole process our expert and professional team at elite builders London will liaise with the local council building control officers to ensure that they are aware of all of the work undertaken and also that they will give you a completion certificate once an inspector has seen the conversion.
