Epsom Quality Garage Conversions

If you wish to greatly expand your living room, why not consider a highly cost-effective garage conversion? Garage conversions are so cost-effective because, unlike an extension, you don't have to lay any new foundations or construct any new walls. Most garages already have functioning electrics, meaning that there will be no need for extra electrical work. Garage conversions are typically single storey structures which are an addition to your existing house. If you own a car or have other vehicles or items that you keep in storage, they are most likely being kept in your garage. Our trusted and professional team of builders will be happy to design and execute a beautiful and unique garage conversion.  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.

Could You Benefit From the Additional Space in Your Garage?

When most people consider extending their home in some way, they don’t consider that the garage could be the best way to do this. 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.

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. Some years ago most people used to simply use the garage for storing their car. Advancements in car building and technology mean that it is no longer required to store your car inside the garage. By storing rubbish and unwanted items in your garage, you are essentially wasting what could be a beautiful addition to your living space.

Most garages become spaces to store old items that you may have no use for ever again. As we generally need living space more than we need storage space, we are often overlooking a very cost-effective and simple way to enlarge our home.

Planning permission in Epsom and high quality garage conversions

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

Garage Conversions

Planning consent in Epsom is generally not required if your garage conversion can be called permitted development (pd). 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. Most properties in Epsom will require written formal approval if you plan to alter the use of your 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. That would cost £500, plus any design fees. Any major structural changes that will be made throughout the building project, will require a completed householder planning application. You may also be required to apply for listed building consents or party wall agreements to complete your conversion.

Garage conversions and building regulations in Epsom

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.

This gives you peace of mind that the drawings have been inspected by building control and confirmed that your conversion will conform to the regulations, if it is constructed according to the approved use guidelines. It is highly recommendable that a building control officer or inspector looks at your garage conversion because they can give advice regarding a large number of issues such as damp proofing, ventilation, insulation, structural protection and many more.

Epsom garage conversion key works and considerations

To prepare any garage for a conversion, the first step is to make sure that the walls and roof are completely sound and watertight. Our first class team of builders and tradespeople will then conduct the majority of the conversion work inside the existing garage.

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. 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. However, to achieve sufficient thermal efficiency, it will need to be levelled (consider a self-levelling liquid screed), damp proofed with an acceptable membrane (lapping into the walls dpc) and insulated. 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.

How can we convert your basement?

The first thing when converting a basement is to ensure that the foundation will not let in water. As a basement is generally low in a property, it is very important to build it up to ensure that your new conversion is not affected by groundwater. 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. To an established structure a cavity drain system requires minimum planning and disruption

  • Installing and infilling a new door

    Clients generally would like the existing garage door to match the rest of the house, so this could be achieved using masonry infill so that the wall matches the rest of the house. The evaluation of the design stage should determine whether the foundations require modifications to accommodate the new loads. 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.

  • Why should I insulate 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). If your building has cavity walls, then we will not require stud walls to be built, we can simply blow insulation into the gap which means that all of the internal space is retained.

Will it be necessary to insulate my roof?

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. 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. 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

Which doors and windows would you suggest?

It is very important when selecting doors and windows that you ensure they meet the appropriate full unit u values (1.6 w, m2k for windows, 1.84 doors), provide sufficient ventilation, meet safety regulations, and suit your decor. 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.

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. This kind of work can involve a structural engineer to make calculations. 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. Our dedicated team of professionals can guarantee that any escape window fitted will comply precisely with industry and safety regulations.

Garage Conversions

Installing heating and electrics

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. Our highly trained professionals can advise you as to how much additional load your consumer unit and boiler may need to deal with due to the heating loops and new electrical circuits installed in the new space.

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. An easy option for lighting are led downlights which can be easily fitted into the ceiling of the new garage conversion A great way to maximise the space in your new garage conversion is to install slimline underfloor heating as opposed to radiators.

Hot and cold water sources would need to be accounted for during the conversion. If you are planning a kitchen or bathroom it will be wise to consider how you will ventilate it The issue of ventilation with regards to a bathroom or kitchen can be easily remedied by the installation of a powerful extractor ventilator stop

How much does a garage conversion cost in Epsom?

Understandably as garages and conversions come in so many different sizes and designs, we prefer to deliver quotes based on each unique person’s requirements. Although conversion costs are difficult to estimate, £15 to 25k plus vat for a simple garage conversion is an accepted market price.

For this budget what work can I expect?

This price 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

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.

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