About Us - Garage Conversions Specialists

We at Garage Conversion Specialists offer the complete garage conversion service from contacting the local authority for building regulations - to the last decorating finishes.

Through our own experiences we know that many families need more space but cannot afford to move to a bigger house. Extensions and loft conversions may extend your living area but they take many months of planning and can prove very expensive.


A standard garage is 5m x 2.4m, which means you will have extra living space of 12 square metres. That's a lot of living space, which at the moment, is currently redundant and simply waiting to be put to good use for you and your family.

We can convert your garage into:
Playroom
Study
Dining room
Extra bedroom
Bathroom
Mini gym
Home entertainments room
Family room
Sauna...
It's up to you.
The list is endless!


Even if you do not want to convert your whole garage and you want to leave the door on, we can do a part conversion. This means you can keep the front part for storage like bikes etc. whilst the remainder is converted into a room of your choice. This does not change the look of the front of your house but gives you extra living space.

From your first contact to the completion we will always be on hand to advise you and answer any questions you may have.

After the initial call we will arrange a time to come and see you at your convenience to provide you with a free survey.

We will advise you on all the building regulations and what is actually involved in a garage conversion.

We will take on board all of your ideas and even give you some of our own.

On the first visit we will take down all the details of the proposed conversion. We take digital pictures of your windows and bricks so we can match them.

We will then provide you with a comprehensive quote, copy of our Guild of Master Craftsmen certificate and pictures of previous work. At this time we also offer the opportunity for you to go and look at some of our previous work or speak to some of our previous customers, because we know from experience, the only way to judge a builder is to look at previous work.

If you accept our quote we will then agree a convenient start date with you.

Once we start the work we will not leave the job until it is completed.

On a single conversion we will not ask for any money until the conversion is completed!!!

Within our quote we allow for submitting the building notice and dealing with the local authorities throughout the conversion.

When getting your garage converted you must ensure that it is carried out to building regulations or you may have problems if you ever want to sell your house. All of our conversions are built to current regulations which the final certificate will show. When bricking up the front of the garage we teeth out the existing brickwork on both sides of the garage so when we have finished the conversion will look as if it has always been a part of the house.

We will match all internal features such as doors and skirting so once the conversion is completed it will seem as if it is part of the original construction.

When finished you will get your final inspection and completion certificate. When you have received this certificate we will give you our invoice.

Before we leave we will tidy all disturbed areas and jet wash your drive so you will never know any work has taken place.

ON COMPLETION OF YOUR CONVERSION YOU WILL BE ISSUED WITH A 10 YEAR INSURANCE BACKED GUARANTEE !!!

BUILDING REGULATIONS


Building regulations for garage conversions are a legal requirement even where formal planning is not required.

If you do not obtain this approval it could lead to difficulties when you come to sell your property, the local council may even ask you to convert it back.

Who ever you get to carry out your conversion you MUST make sure that they deal with all this on your behalf to make sure your conversion is safe and to current building regulations.

We at Garage Conversion Specialists always deal with these matters on your behalf. On your acceptance of our quotation will pay and submit the building notice to your local authority. Then through out the conversion we will liase will the local authorities and get inspections at various stages. Then on completion you will be issued with your completion certificate.

Affordable, reliable and professional service
