Make your Garage Conversion a true Reality
Most garages in the UK are truly neglected places that are too small to park a family car, so more often than not they are used for a storage room for a collection of junk and unused items. Anything that is dis-guarded in the main almost always gets slung in your garage. This in fact makes your garage a very expensive storeroom, offering very little value to your home.
Now turn this space into a habitable living area and now you have an asset, that will bring value to your current home. Not only that, but your quality of life will improve, as you enjoy this new extra spacious area of your your home. Let's be honest, we could all do with more room! Maybe you have a growing family or would like to create a home office, home gym, kids playroom, home theatre or just somewhere to relax and chill out.
You could utilise your integral garage to extend a room in your main house, example, such as a kitchen extension or lounge extension, or alternatively, make the garage into a room with a singular function, for instance, a hobby or interest that you would like to pursue. The permutations are endless and only your imagination will hold you back, what would you use a garage conversion space for?

Here are some frequently asked questions that we get regarding garage conversions in Leicester.
Do I require planning permission?
Although most garage conversions are individual requirements, we usually find that around 5 per cent need any planning permission, If yours is an attached or integral type garage, then you will mostly just require building regulations.
Will I need building regulations?
Any garages that are going to be converted into habitable rooms, will always need building regulations. As a company, we will always check an application with the building regulations control before any work begins.
Will you obtain the building regulations or is that something we must do?
It’s possible for you to obtain your own or we can do it for you. It's entirely up to you. Garage conversions are all individual so prices can be variable, so look to have a quote from the building control before any application is actually submitted in full.
Building regulations, how long does it take to get them?
Because we work together with building control on a regular basis, we can sometimes access them more readily and move your conversion along more swiftly.
Will i require any planning permission?
I would say almost 95 per cent of garage conversions will not require any planning permission whatsoever. If you take into account that if your garage is in fact detached and over 30 meters square, you may need planning permission. We have architects that can take of anything like this, and draw and submit plans to the planning office if need be for approval.
How long does a garage conversion take from start to completion?
This really depends on the actual work that is involved in your particular project. We will discuss times with you on our initial consultation meeting, once we have more details and know more about your garage conversion requirements. One thing we will not do is rush a project to get it completed to the exact time. Usually, these types of conversions are straight forward but sometimes unseen problems can arise and a job could take a day or two extra, but we will not compromise on the quality of our work by trying to beat the clock. I hope you understand. Thank you

An affordable and practical way to add more usable space to your property is a garage conversion, that's if you are one of the lucky people to have one attached to your property in the first place. A single garage will give you around 150 square foot of extra space attached to the side of your house ready to be transformed or extend an existing room in your house. Also a double garage could be converted in a couple of ways, convert the half near the house and keep the other side as a single garage to park your car or use as storage space, the choice is yours.
As UK property prices are reaching figures that make buying new houses and moving unaffordable for a lot of people. That is why quiet a number of homeowners are looking at ways to extend their houses where they can. Maybe to house the children or elderly parents or just lifestyle changes. A good way to go about this is a basement conversion. Usually this dark and dismal room is often neglected and never used for anything else but storing unwanted items. Basements can be converted into some wonderful usable spaces that can considerably upgrade and add real monetary value if you do decide to move at a later date.
Part Garage Conversions
There are lots of reasons why you may want to about a part-garage conversion. While converting a garage might be a great idea to add space by creating an extra bedroom, office or extending the kitchen and living room, some people would prefer to keep part of their garage as maybe a storage area or other functional room, or still keep half as a garage if they have a double garage to play with.
Planning Permission and Building Regulations
If you are not planning on changing the outside surface of the building when completing the garage conversion project, then you may not need any regulatory permission. We can discuss your requirements and advise you of any building regulations and necessary procedures upon our site visit to your premises, and prepare a detailed quotation and fixed price for the intended conversion work. Some regulations will inevitably apply and have to be respected if insulation, heating or lighting will be affected, but this is all covered by our qualified builders and tradesmen as they can be 100% relied on to comply.
Shell Garage Conversions
If your budget does not allow for a full a full garage conversion project or you would prefer to complete the interior yourself, no problem, we are flexible in the way we operate and can certainly do a quotation for a shell-garage conversion. Maybe you would enjoy getting stuck into your own D.I.Y project once we have handed over the completed conversion shell to you. There are basics to consider including the brickwork to replace the garage doors and provide an external access. Also building stud walls, flooring, rewiring, plumbing and insulation to think about, but it's entirely your decision at what stage you would like us to hand over the conversion project.
