You must ask yourself, am I putting my garage to good use?

Due to a lack of space, it can become difficult to continue storing a vehicle in a garage. The family car had to defend against the harsh weather years ago.

Garage Conversions

Garage conversions and planning permission in Faversham

For many garage conversions especially integral or attached spaces most of the work is in-house (except the changing the front and installing one or two windows).

Garage Conversions

If your garage conversion falls within the ambit of permitted development (pd), you may not require planning consent in Faversham. Within your house deeds there could be a restrictive covenant which requires that the garage be kept as a parking area, these will need to be discharged. A garage conversion alters the use of a detached garage and therefore in Faversham may require formal permission.

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team may need to assist you in asking for approval from householder planning if by any chance your pd rights have been revoked. There would be a charge of £500, plus design fees. You would be required to submit a completed application if your project involves any major structural changes to the exterior of the property. You may also be required to apply for listed building consents or party wall agreements to complete your conversion.

Converting your garage and building regulations in Faversham

By changing the use of your garage, our skilled engineers will then need to ensure that the conversion is within the building regulations. Meticulous structural plans drawn up before you begin your garage conversion, can prove to be very useful later in the process.

By completing structural plans for more complex garage conversions, we can guarantee greater peace of mind as your plans will have been inspected by building control and ensuring that the conversion is carried out according to 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.

Key works and considerations for garage conversions in Faversham

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 building work to complete the conversion, will be carried out inside the pre-existing garage.

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. It will be necessary to cover these areas during the conversion

  Inspecting the floor for any improvements

Normally, the concrete floor within a garage can withstand any kind of general domestic use. By levelling the pre-existing concrete floor, damp proofing it and insulating it, we can ensure thermal efficiency within the new 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?

Waterproofing a basement makes sure the foundation is 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. By installing a cavity drain membrane system, our expert team will ensure that moisture or flowing water will continue to pass behind the cone. Luckily, our proficient team can install a cavity drain system without any major disruption.

  • Changing the door

    For a high quality garage conversion, we would generally replace the main garage door with brickwork that matches the rest of the house. 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. Planning allows you to add windows or a glazed access door and bring more daylight into your new space, which can also help to reduce the load.

  • Do I need to insulate the walls?

    If your property has an integrated garage, it is highly likely that the walls will not require any additional work. 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. 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.

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.

Condensation can be highly detrimental to the building structure, therefore flat roofs will require rigid insulation between the ceiling joists and under them with a ventilation gap above. Our industry professionals can assist you in maintaining the height of your conversion by using slim multi-foil or polysocyanyiltrate (pir) products

Garage Conversions

Which doors and windows would you suggest?

It may seem obvious but it is very important to choose high quality windows with appropriate u values for your new conversion. We would also recommend the cost-effective option of operating regular units. It is quite straightforward for our skilled team to install any kind of casements, sash or door sets by creating a suitable whole and inserting as many lintels as necessary.

Our talented engineers can also apply the same method to install main house and garage entrances. For a more open plan design, we would recommend the use of a reinforcing steel beam. 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.

It is required by law that any habitable room which doesn’t have an exterior door must have an escape window. 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

  High-quality heating and electrics installation

It is highly recommended that any work carried out on your heating and electrical systems is self-certified by trained professionals 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

This could potentially add up to £2000 to the total project budget if these devices require updating. An easy option for lighting are led downlights which can be easily fitted into the ceiling of the new garage conversion 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 Ventilation could be an issue. 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

Price range for garage conversions in Faversham

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. If you require a simple garage conversion, for one garage, we would suggest a budget of around £15 to 25k plus vat.

What exactly does this price include?

  • Supply and fit one matching internal door to opening

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
