Types of garage conversion

Full conversion of an integral single garage.

Conversion of the whole garage into a new habitable space, replacing the garage door with regular door/windows and/or moving the opening to the rear of the house.

Part conversion of an integral single garage.

Conversion of part of the garage to increase the living space of the property whilst keeping the garage door and using front of the garage for storage.

Double integral garage conversions.

Conversion of the whole garage into a new habitable space, replacing the garage door with regular door/windows and/or moving the opening to the rear of the house. There is more opportunity with a double garage conversion to create new rooms with partitions.

Detached single garage conversions.

A detached single garage conversion is pretty much the same as a single integral garage conversion but will require more work due to the added need of insulation. Planning permission may also be required if connection to the main property is wanted.

Detached double garage conversions.

A detached double garage conversion is pretty much the same as a double integral garage conversion but will require more work due to the added need of insulation. Planning permission may also be required if connection to the main property is wanted.

The Garage Conversion Planning Process

The vast majority of garage conversions in England do not usually require planning permission as they fall within ‘Permitted Development Rights intact’, this means unless the permitted development rights have been removed or the project involves enlarging the building it is very easy to get extra room in your home. Keep in mind however that the conversion of a garage, or part of a garage, into a habitable space will usually require Building Regulations approval.

You can find more information about The Garage Conversion Planning Process by clicking here.

The Garage Conversion Building Process

Most Garage Conversion projects follow the same fundamental install process regardless of what the new space is going to be used for. We usually start by installing stud work and creating any new walls that might be needed, this is followed by insulating the room so it complies with the required building regulations.

Following this we will usually raise the floor, using suitable insulating, install any required electrics and plumbing, plaster the room and finally add any required windows and doors.

FAQ

1
Do I need planning permission?

Planning permission is generally not required for garage conversions, but you will need building regulations approval. We can apply on your behalf and provide a quote based off all the work required to meet building regs.

2
How long will the job take to complete?

This will depend on the size of the project and what you are going to be using the room for. For example a simple conversion to an office or Gym room is going to be quicker to complete than if the garage is going to be converted into something like a bathroom.

We can usually have an average size single garage converted within 10-14 working days and unlike a lot of companies we can usually make a start on your project within a 2-4 weeks.

3
How much does a garage conversion cost?

Each conversion is going to be different but as a rule of thumb a conversion of your garage into a usable and practical space can usually be done for around £6,000 – £15,000 for a single garage increasing to £11,000 – £30,000 for a double garage conversion.

However it’s possible to get this cost much lower if you keep things simple with the design and materials such as doors, flooring, heating and lighting etc.

4
What are your payment terms?

We ask for a 10% deposit to schedule the work, a stage payment half way through completion and a balance payment once all the work has been completed.
