We ask you to consider exactly what you are using your garage for day-to-day.

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. Some years ago it was advisable to keep your car inside a garage. Thanks to the advancement of technology, it is now not necessary to keep the car inside a garage. As a consequence garages appear to transform into empty rooms, or they become overflowing with rubbish and unwanted belongings.

It is also highly likely that you have toys, memorabilia, or any number of other items in your garage that have been stored there for many years. 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.

Ewell 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

As the majority of garage conversions are considered permitted developments or pd, it is not necessary to request planning consents in Ewell. Some modern buildings are subject to restrictive covenants requiring that the garage be maintained as a parking area, which will need to be discharged (check the deeds to find out if this is true). By changing the original use of your detached garage, you may be required in Ewell to apply for formal approval.

Don’t worry that you will not be able to follow a scheme if your pd rights have been revoked, we are on hand to help you put together well thought out sketches to ask for appropriate permission from householder planning. That would cost £500, plus any 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. If you have adjacent neighbours or you reside in a listed building it could be that you will require listed building consents or party wall agreements to undertake a conversion.

Converting your garage and building regulations in Ewell

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.

Building control will look over your structural plans and will be able to confirm that there are within the building regulations, ensuring that the construction of your conversion also conforms to these 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.

High-quality garage conversion key works and considerations in Ewell

The walls and roof have to be made sound and watertight before the project can begin. Most of the work will then be conducted by our expert team, inside the existing garage space.

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. Our team will carry out the following during the construction process

One floor slab

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. 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.

To convert my basement, what needs to be done?

The first thing when converting a basement is to ensure that the foundation will not let in water. Our quality basement conversions include increasing the height of the basement 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. The installation of a cavity drain system generally requires very little planning or destruction to your property.

  • 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. It is very important that the foundations of your garage can withstand the extra weight of the conversion, we will assess this thoroughly during the design stage. 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

    The walls of integrated garages are generally designed to exactly the same specifications as those of the main property, meaning that they will not require any extra improvement. 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. 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.

Insulating your roof

It is quite straightforward to remove the garage roof at loft level enabling our specialist team to place 217 mm of mineral words with a pitched covering, hundred millimetres between the joists and the rest on top to successfully insulate the roof. 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.

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. If you want to maintain height from floor to ceiling, gopher slim multi-foil or polysocianyiltrate (pir) products.

Garage Conversions

Windows and doors for your conversion

The fenestration you choose will have to hit the appropriate full unit u values (1.6 w m2 k for windows, 1.84 doors), meet your safety standards, provide sufficient ventilation, and suit your home style. We would also recommend the cost-effective option of operating regular units. For the different varieties of door installations, we generally begin by inserting the desired lintels into a suitable hole.

The opening into the main house from the garage can also have any kind of door installed using our innovative design techniques. By using, for example, a reinforced steel beam, our innovative team can help make your garage conversion feel more open plan. Designing a more open plan garage conversion could require a structural engineer to make some calculations. Developers may impose a restrictive agreement on integrated garages to be purchased prior to conversion.

If you’re building a habitable room that doesn’t have an exterior door, directly secured path, or its own door leading to the outside, then you have to have an escape window. We can ensure that all building and safety regulations will be closely followed when installing an escape window.

Garage Conversions

  High-quality heating and electrics installation

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. It is possible that the new heating loops and electrical circuits required for the conversion may place extra load 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 Effective led downlights are a good choice for lighting, as they can easily be built into the new ceiling structure Why not consider installing cutting-edge underfloor heating to maximise the interior space in your new conversion?

Hot and cold water sources would need to be accounted for during the conversion. One possible problem here could be ventilation 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.

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
