Along with the obvious life-style improvements a garage conversion offers, it has been estimated by independent property surveyors that the average garage conversion adds between £10,000 – £15,000 to the value of a house.

Tapping into the unused potential of your garage can provide a new living or kitchen, bedroom, office or even a self-contained annexe. Whatever space you want, we’ll build it.

Integral Conversions

For those who have a garage integral to your house then in the majority of instances you won’t require planning permission to execute the conversion providing that you aren’t increasing the footprint of the building. Nevertheless, make sure you seek advice from your local council because current building standards being applied by them can include floor insulation that the garage more than likely will not have, but even if this is the situation Insulation can often be provided without disturbing the concrete base since the conversion no longer has a requirement to maintain the level to your outside drive and an internal step will not be a problem.

Most garage conversions in Altrincham will require Building Regulations approval. Even in the rare cases when approval is not needed (e.g. when you have a very small, detached garage), it’s a sensible idea to get a Completion Certificate anyway; if you sell the house, the purchaser’s solicitor will ask to see a certificate for all building work you’ve performed.

Building Regulations approval will take into account different aspects of the build, including:

Sub-structure (if applicable)
Floor surfaces
Waterflow and drainage

Here are a few common uses that others have made of this valuable space :-

Save all of that petrol by making a workplace at your home.
A much needed extra bedroom / guestroom.
A ‘granny annexe’ (Double Garages)
Play area for children.
A big kitchen area with dining facilities.
A home cinema
A dining area
A home-gym
Another living room
Or just an extension to an existing room
