Considerations for a garage conversion

Looking to convert your garage? Brilliant news! It’s a fantastic way to make use of an often-forgotten area in your home, giving you and the rest of your household more space to live comfortably. We carry out a large number of garage conversions and we are well versed in the most important considerations when applying for a garage conversion. Whatever the scale of your garage conversion, following the right steps at every stage of the process will save you considerable time and stress.

How much does it cost to convert a garage?

One of the most common questions we are asked is: how much does it cost to convert a garage? Well, that’s hard to answer – as every garage and the needs of each property owner are so different. A commonly cited figure is somewhere between £8,000 and £11,000 – but again, this can vary depending on the amount and complexity of the work that needs to be carried out to convert the space.

One thing that you should bear in mind is that, while converting your garage is a large upfront investment, it will increase the overall value of your home. You could add anything up to 20% to its value, making converting your garage something that will pay off in the short and long term.

Do I need drawings for a garage conversion?

Whether your garage conversion needs planning permission or not, you are required to submit scaled architectural drawings to your local council’s planning department. These need to clearly show your existing property, and the proposed changes that converting your garage will make. We will be happy to provide these.
