ADDING PROPERTY VALUE
Along with the clear life-style improvements a garage conversion offers, it has been estimated by independent property surveyors that the typical garage conversion adds between £10,000 – £15,000 to the valuation of a house.
Tapping into the unused potential of your garage may offer you a new living or dining room, bedroom, office or even a self-contained annexe. Whatever space you want, we’ll establish it.
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. Nevertheless, you should 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 holds true 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 might not be a problem.
Most garage conversions Birkenhead will require Building Regulations approval. Even in the rare cases when approval isn’t needed (e.g. if you have a very small, detached garage), it is a sensible idea to get a Completion Certificate anyway; if you sell the property, the purchaser’s solicitor will ask to see a certificate for all building work you’ve carried out.
Building Regulations approval will take into account a variety of aspects of the build, including:
- Sub-structure (if applicable)
- Flooring surfaces
- Waterflow and drainage
Your options really are endless – a converted garage can be used for almost any purpose, as long as the necessary work is completed. For instance, if you’re planning to convert your garage into a spare bedroom, the room needs to have good insulation, access to electricity and ideally it’ll need to be sound-proofed. Typically, at least one window will also be required.
