In addition to the clear lifestyle improvements a garage conversion provides, it’s been estimated by independent property surveyors that the typical garage conversion adds between £10,000 – £15,000 to the value of a house.

Tapping into the unused potential of your garage can supply you with a new living or kitchen, bedroom, office or even a self-contained annexe. Regardless of what space you want, we’ll develop it.

Integral Conversions

If your garage is integral to your home you will find in most cases that planning permission will not be required to undertake the conversion providing that you’re not increasing the footprint of the building. Having said that, it is best to talk to your local council because current building standards being applied by them might include floor insulation that the garage almost definitely will not have, but even if this is the situation Insulation can 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 might not be a problem.

Most garage conversions in Knutsford will require Building Regulations approval. Even in the rare instances when approval isn’t needed (e.g. when you have a very small, detached garage), it is a prudent idea to get a Completion Certificate anyway; if you sell your home, the purchaser’s solicitor will ask to see a certificate for all building work you’ve undertaken.

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

Sub-structure (if applicable)
Floor surfaces
Energy Efficiency
Water drainage

Below are some regular uses that others have made of this valuable space :-

Save all of that petrol by making a workplace at your home.
An added bedroom with or without en-suite amenities
A ‘granny annexe’ (Double Garages)
Play area for children.
A bigger kitchen
A home cinema
A dining area
A home-gym
Another lounge
Or just an extension to an existing room

The options really are endless – a converted garage can be used for virtually any purpose, as long as the required work is completed. As an example, if you’re planning to convert your garage into a spare bedroom, the room will need to have good insulation, access to electricity and ideally it’ll need to be sound-proofed. Most of the time, at least one window will also be required.
