Your Garage and Unused Space?

Consider what currently you are using your garage for

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. In the past it was accepted that vehicles needed to be stored inside. The advancement of modern cars is greatly reducing the need for garage parking. 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 the Addition of a Garage Conversion Add Value to my Property?

Yiewsley planning permission and garage conversions

For the majority of our quality garage conversions, the construction work will take place inside the house.

Garage Conversions

This is likely to be called permitted development (pd) so the formal planning consent in Yiewsley would typically 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. In Yiewsley you would also require formal approval to alter the use of a detached garage.

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team may need to assist you in asking for approval from householder planning if by any chance your pd rights have been revoked. Excluding design fees, the cost for that will be £500. 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 Yiewsley

Because this form of conversion requires a change of use, a garage conversion would be subject to the building regulations. Sometimes when undertaking a complicated conversion, it is recommended to have complete structural plans drawn up before you begin.

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. 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.

High-quality garage conversion key works and considerations in Yiewsley

Garage conversions cannot begin until the walls and roof have been completely sealed and made watertight, so this is the first step. Most of the work will then be conducted by our expert team, inside the existing garage space.

Our dedicated team of engineers don’t want any nasty surprises during the construction project which is why we begin every garage conversion by stripping the main structure to ensure that there are strong foundations and walls. Here are some of the highlights

One floor slab

It is highly likely that the existing floor in your garage is solid enough for any of the conversion requirements. However, to increase the temperature within the garage conversion, it may be necessary to level the floor, damp proof and insulate it. Because the floors of garages are often lower than the floors in the main house, insulating them in a variety of ways is often quite straightforward and will simply raise the level of the garage floor to meet that of the main house.

How can we convert your basement?

To ensure that a basement is watertight we will undertake the required work to waterproof it All basements should be built up to the maximum retained height of the area to cope with groundwater levels In a normal drainage system moisture or flowing water passes behind the cone, this is why our meticulous builders will install a cavity drain membrane system. Luckily, our proficient team can install a cavity drain system without any major 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. Our careful attention to detail during the design stage will allow us to assess whether the existing foundations need any modification to withstand the new loads. As glass weighs less than brick walls, it is highly recommended that in the initial planning stage you include more glass.

  • Do I need to insulate the walls?

    Our team of dedicated industry professionals will be able to advise you as to whether you need to insulate the walls of your garage, however, this will generally not be necessary in an integrated garage for example. 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. Buildings with cavity walls may have insulation blown into the gap, thereby preserving the space of the internal floor.

How can I insulate the roof?

It is a very simple process for our skilled builders to remove the garage roof at loft level. Why not discuss a warm roof system with our expert design team and allow them to also include rooflights which can add extra daylight to the interior of the conversion.

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. 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

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

Our talented engineers can also apply the same method to install main house and garage entrances. To achieve a modern, open plan design, we would use a reinforced steel beam over a large area. It is possible that the calculations for this will require a structural engineer. 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 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

Heating and electrics

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. Providing heating and lights in your quality new conversion may result in some additional load being placed 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. Effective led downlights are a good choice for lighting, as they can easily be built into the new ceiling structure A great way to maximise the space in your new garage conversion is to install slimline underfloor heating as opposed to radiators.

If you are planning a kitchen or bathroom, the hot and cold water sources as well as drainage would need to be accounted for. It is important to bear in mind that it is difficult to ventilate a kitchen or bathroom in a conversion 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 Yiewsley?

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 works can be included in this estimate?

We would include;

  • Dig footing to the front of the garage and supply and fit one 150×100 mm prestressed concrete lintel
  • Cover drive and supply skip
  • Remove existing door and frame
  • Deal with inspectors and submit building notice
  • 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

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.
