Camberley Quality Garage Conversions

There are a few different ways to expand existing rooms within your home, a low-cost garage conversion is one of the most attractive. 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. The addition of our beautifully designed, single-storey garage conversion, will act as a complement to your existing house.

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. It could be possible that your Camberley property requires formal permission to change the designated use of your detached garage.

The cost would be £500 with any additional design fees as extra. You would be required to submit a completed application if your project involves any major structural changes to the exterior of the property. Our methodical team can help you with any other permits that you may require such as listed building consents or party wall agreements.

Garage conversions and building regulations in Camberley

As your garage conversion will allow you to use your garage in a different way, it would then 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.

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.

Garage conversion key works and considerations in Camberley

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. We will then work within the existing garage for the majority of the project.

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

  Checking the existing floor

It is highly likely that the existing floor in your garage is solid enough for any of the conversion requirements. Thermal efficiency can be achieved within the new conversion by levelling the floor maybe with a self-levelling liquid screed, damp proofing it with an acceptable membrane (lapping into the walls dpc,), and insulating 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.

To convert my basement, what needs to be done?

You cannot successfully convert a basement unless the foundation is completely waterproof. All basements should be built up to the maximum retained height of the area to 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.

  • Installing and infilling a new 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. 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.

  • Wall insulation

    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. 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?

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.

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 within a domestic property that the fenestration not only suits the overall style of the home but that it also conforms with the full unit u values of 1.6 w, m2 k for windows, 1.84 doors and meet your safety standards. We would also recommend the cost-effective option of operating regular units. Our sophisticated engineering techniques involve punching a suitable hole and inserting lintels to ensure the installation of casements, door sets and sashes to the highest standard.

The main house and garage openings can also be installed using the same method. A reinforcing steel beam may be required for larger spans allowing for a more open plan feel. Because an open plan designed garage conversion may involve more structural adjustments, it could be necessary for a structural engineer to lend his expertise. Be aware of the possibility that if you have an integrated garage there may be restrictive agreements imposed by a developer which will have to be purchased before the conversion can take place.

Our meticulous attention to detail means that we will be very careful that any habitable room which does not have an exit point will have an escape window. Any escape window is required by law to have a transparent openable area of at least not 0.33 mm2, it should have a width and height of not less than 450 mm and should be installed in such a way that the bottom opens and creates an area that is not more than 1100 mm from the finished stage.

Garage Conversions

Will I need to install heating and electrics?

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. Providing heating and lights in your quality new conversion may result in some additional load being placed on your consumer unit and boiler

This could potentially add up to £2000 to the total project budget if these devices require updating. Our attention to detail means that we want to ensure that your conversion is well lit by installing effective led downlights. 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. One possible problem here could be ventilation 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

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
