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

Garage Conversions

Planning consent in Frimley 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. It could be possible that your Frimley property requires formal permission to change the designated use of your detached garage.

Don’t worry that you will not be able to follow a scheme if your pd rights have been revoked, we are on hand to help you put together well thought out sketches to ask for appropriate permission from householder planning. The overall charge would be £500 and you would have to pay the design fees on top of that. 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.

Garage conversions and building regulations in Frimley

By changing the use of your garage, our skilled engineers will then need to ensure that the conversion is within the building regulations. When beginning complex Frimley garage conversions, our first class design team highly recommend drawing up structural plans before the project begins.

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. 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.

Key works and considerations for garage conversions in Frimley

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. The majority of the work will then take place inside the 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 is a summary of the construction work required for your conversion

  Evaluating the existing floor

It is highly likely that the existing floor in your garage is solid enough for any of the conversion requirements. By levelling the pre-existing concrete floor, damp proofing it and insulating it, we can ensure thermal efficiency within the new conversion. Garage floors appear to be lower than those in the main house so all of this can be integrated and a step free barrier between the two areas can still be reached.

How can we convert your basement?

Waterproofing a basement makes sure the foundation is watertight Our professional building team will ensure that your basement has been raised to the maximum area height in order to successfully cope with groundwater levels. In theory, in a regulated drainage system, a cavity drain membrane system allows moisture of flowing water to pass behind the cone. To an established structure a cavity drain system requires minimum planning and disruption

  • Changing the 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. 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. Our innovative team of designers will carefully assist you to, for example add windows or a glazed access door to the conversion which can increase the natural light in the room and also lighten the load placed on the foundations.

  • Do I need to 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 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). To preserve the internal floor space of our high quality conversions, we can also blow insulation into the gap in cavity walls.

Will it be necessary to insulate my roof?

It is a very simple process for our skilled builders to remove the 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.

A good way to prevent condensation from entering the flat roof of your conversion, is to place installation around the ceiling joists and ensure that there is a ventilation gap above. 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?

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. Designing a more open plan garage conversion could require a structural engineer to make some calculations. Our detail oriented approach means that we will check if any developer has imposed a restrictive agreement on your integrated garage which we will need to purchase prior to the conversion taking 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. Our dedicated team of professionals can guarantee that any escape window fitted will comply precisely with industry and safety regulations.

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

It may be necessary to upgrade your devices to deal with the new electrical circuits and heating loops which could also potentially raise the total budget by £2000. Effective led downlights are a good choice for lighting, as they can easily be built into the new ceiling structure 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.

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 Opening windows, fitted with trickle vents, will be sufficient in most cases but if you incorporate a bathroom or kitchen, you will need a powerful enough extractor ventilator to manage the buildup of humidity.

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.
