Edmonton Quality Garage Conversions

Converting your garage is a relatively low-cost way to expand your living room Because a garage is a pre-existing structure, a conversion can be much cheaper than an extension, which would involve building something completely new. If your garage already has lights and possibly an electric door, there could be no need for any kind of electrical rewiring for your new garage conversion. A garage conversion is a special single storey extension design that is designed as a complement to an existing structure. It is very common within domestic properties to use garages as storage areas. Elite builders London can be trusted to design and build the ideal garage conversion that will turn the space into something you want. Our attention to detail and commitment to customer satisfaction, means that not only will your garage conversion be completed on budget and on time, but also to the highest specifications.

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

Cars have grown much bigger in recent years and houses much smaller. Some years ago it was advisable to keep your car inside a garage. Advancements in car building and technology mean that it is no longer required to store your car inside the garage. These days most garages have been converted into rooms for storing unwanted rubbish.

Most garages become spaces to store old items that you may have no use for ever again. Meanwhile we are struggling to find the space in our homes that we need

Edmonton planning permission and garage conversions

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

This is likely to be called permitted development (pd) so the formal planning consent in Edmonton would typically not be necessary. 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. Most properties in Edmonton will require written formal approval if you plan to alter the use of your 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for approval from householder planning, you will still be able to convert your garage even if your pd rights have been revoked. The overall charge would be £500 and you would have to pay the design fees on top of that. If you want to drastically alter the exterior appearance, such as making major changes to the windows, using new materials, or incorporating an extension, a complete application would also be required You may also be required to apply for listed building consents or party wall agreements to complete your conversion.

Building regulations in Edmonton 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. In addition to structural protection, damp proofing, ventilation, insulation, and energy conservation, fire safety (including escape routes), electrical and plumbing are key areas the building control officer or authorised inspector can look at.

Garage conversion considerations and key works in Edmonton

The walls and roof have to be made sound and watertight before the project can begin. The majority of the building work to complete the conversion, will be carried out inside the pre-existing garage.

There are sometimes unforeseen problems at the beginning of a conversion such as patchy foundations or issues with internal walls, this is difficult to assess until the main structure has been stripped back, which is the first task for our team. Here are some of the highlights

  Inspecting the floor for any improvements

The concrete floor in garages, are generally built to be sturdy enough for regular domestic use. However, to increase the temperature within the garage conversion, it may be necessary to level the floor, damp proof and insulate 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.

What work will be necessary for my basement conversion?

Waterproofing a basement makes sure the foundation is watertight 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. With minimal planning and disruption a cavity drain membrane system can be installed to regulate your basement drainage.

  • Should I infill 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. A cost-effective and attractive way to lighten the load placed on the foundations by the conversion, is to add extra windows or a glazed access door.

  • Why should I insulate the walls?

    If you have an integrated garage, it is highly likely that the walls will not require any additional work as they will be exactly the same as those of the main house 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 do you insulate roofs?

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. There is also the possibility of warm roof systems, which are insulated at the rafter level, which may allow the use of rooflights to add more natural daylight.

In order to prevent condensation, flat roofs must be equipped with rigid insulation between and under the ceiling joists, with a ventilation gap above. It is very important to maintain the original height of the room that is being converted, and we achieve this by using the latest in slim multi-foil or polysocianyiltrate (pir) products.

Garage Conversions

Windows and doors

Our dedication to customer satisfaction means that we will assist you in choosing the perfect windows that not only hit the appropriate u values but that also meet your safety standards, suit the style of your home and provide sufficient ventilation. By operating regular units you can keep costs down 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. 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. One of our specialist structural engineers may need to make the calculations for this kind of design. 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 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

  High-quality heating and electrics installation

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 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.

For any conversion including a kitchen or bathroom, our professional plumbers will ensure that the drainage and the water sources are accounted for. If you are planning a kitchen or bathroom it will be wise to consider how you will ventilate it 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.

What can I expect to pay for a garage conversion in Edmonton?

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.

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

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