Quality Garage Conversions in Bognor-Regis

Our speciality garage conversions can expand your living room and are tailored to suit any budget. Garage conversions are so cost-effective because, unlike an extension, you don't have to lay any new foundations or construct any new walls. Your garage may already have electricity, too. Garage conversions are typically single storey structures which are an addition to your existing house. Typically only used to store vehicles and other items, a garage is generally a space that people don't even consider converting. Allow our expert engineering team to design and deliver a wonderfully spacious garage conversion that will be an amazing addition to your home. We will not waste either time or money when converting your garage into a beautiful living space.

Could You Benefit From the Additional Space in Your Garage?

Garages are often not considered when people undertake extensions to their properties but garages can be the ideal choice to provide additional living space. Our team of expert designers and builders will be able to provide you with a superb garage conversion that meets your exact specifications.

It is worthwhile to think about whether you are using your garage for anything important or not.

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. Modern car design has meant that garage parking is now not really necessary. It is highly likely that you are wasting the space of your garage by filling it with rubbish and other unwanted belongings.

Most households have stored their garages, exercise equipment, toys, or memorabilia, and very often it will take some time to dispose of these things, so they appear to remain in garages for years or even decades.  Meanwhile we are struggling to find the space in our homes that we need

Will the Addition of a Garage Conversion Add Value to my Property?

Not only will you be able to add up to 20% to your home’s value by adding a quality garage conversion, you will also greatly increase your home’s interior space. It can be extremely cost-effective to extend your home using one of our high quality garage conversions

If you have a double garage attached to your property, we could perform a conversion on half of it leaving the other half as space for storage. The conversion of half of a double garage ensures that you are not only extending your living space, you are also maintaining storage space within the garage.

Why Not Consider a Quality Garage Conversion in Bognor-Regis?

Is your garage space being used wisely?

With cars growing bigger and houses becoming smaller, more and more garages are turning into useless space. Take the time to really consider whether any of the items being stored in your garage are worthwhile or necessary. Modern cars are routinely galvanised meaning that they do not need to be protected from inclement weather in a garage.

By parking outside of the garage you will free up the internal space for one of our beautiful garage conversions. Let our team of highly skilled experts at elite builders London, convert your garage in Bognor-Regis into a beautiful extension of your home whilst also increasing its value.

In addition, a well-made conversion to a garage will carry extra daylight into your home. If your garage is connected to the side of your home, it will make the adjoining room lighter and airier by installing glazed doors for entry! 

Generally old garages are used for,

  • No need to relocate to a new, bigger house
  • Four larger internal living spaces
  • Increasing property value
  • Large family
  • Easy to park the vehicle somewhere else
  • Also difficult to fit larger vehicle in standard 150 ft.² garage
  • Probably not necessary to request planning permission
  • No need to relocate to a bigger property
  • Perfect conversion to suit your requirements
  • Reduce unwanted items in the house
  • Increased luminosity in interior living space

Planning permission in Bognor-Regis and high quality 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). If your garage conversion falls within the ambit of permitted development (PD), you may not require planning consent in Bognor-Regis.

If your property was built recently there could be restrictive covenants within the deeds that require your garage to be used only as a parking area, it is possible to discharge this covenant however. A garage conversion alters the use of a detached garage and therefore in Bognor-Regis may require formal permission.

Bognor-Regis planning permission and garage conversions

Unless your garage conversion requires window installation or the changing of the front of the garage, we can perform the majority of the work in-house

Garage Conversions

If your garage conversion falls within the ambit of permitted development (pd), you may not require planning consent in Bognor-Regis. If your property was built recently there could be restrictive covenants within the deeds that require your garage to be used only as a parking area, it is possible to discharge this covenant however. By changing the original use of your detached garage, you may be required in Bognor-Regis to apply for formal approval.

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. The cost would be £500 with any additional design fees as extra. 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.

Bognor-Regis building regulations and converting your garage

As your garage conversion will allow you to use your garage in a different way, it would then be subject to the building regulations Meticulous structural plans drawn up before you begin your garage conversion, can prove to be very useful later in the process.

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. By inspecting the key areas of the conversion construction a building control officer or authorised inspector can provide additional assurance that key areas such as ventilation, insulation and energy conservation, fire safety (including escape routes), are all built to conform with the building regulations.

Key works and considerations for garage conversions in Bognor-Regis

The first thing to do at the start of the project is to make the walls and roof completely sound and watertight. The majority of the building work to complete the conversion, will be carried out inside the pre-existing garage.

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. Here is a summary of the construction work required for your conversion

  Inspecting the floor for any improvements

An existing concrete floor could well be solid enough to accommodate general domestic use. However, concrete floors often make the room to cold so it may be necessary to level them, damp proof them with an acceptable membrane, and insulate them to increase the temperature and retain heat within the 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?

It is very important to ensure that the foundations of a basement are watertight 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 theory, in a regulated drainage system, a cavity drain membrane system allows moisture of flowing water to pass behind the cone. Luckily, our proficient team can install a cavity drain system without any major disruption.

  • Should I infill the 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. 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. 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.

  • Wall insulation

    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. 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). Our experts builders can also blow insulation into the gap of cavity walls which allows you to preserve all of the internal floor space within the conversion.

Insulating your 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. It is often a concern that the conversion will decrease the height from floor-to-ceiling, however our innovative design techniques involve the use of slim multi-foil or polysocianyiltrate products which means that no height will be lost in the conversion process.

Garage Conversions

Doors and windows

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. If you are interested in keeping costs down, you can try to operate on regular units. For the different varieties of door installations, we generally begin by inserting the desired lintels into a suitable hole.

This is also the case for the garage and main house access points. 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. Developers may impose a restrictive agreement on integrated garages to be purchased prior to conversion.

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. This must have a width and height of not less than 450 mm, a transparent openable area of at least 0.33 mm2 and should be located in such a way that the bottom of the openable area is not more than 1100 mm from the finished stage.

  High-quality heating and electrics installation

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. You will most likely need new electrical circuits and heating loops which will place additional loads on your consumer units 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. 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. Ventilation could be an issue. 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.

Will a garage conversion be expensive?

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
