ADDING PROPERTY VALUE
Along with the clear lifestyle improvements a garage conversion provides, it has been estimated by independent property surveyors that the average garage conversion adds between £10,000 – £15,000 to the valuation of a house.
Tapping into the unused potential of your garage can give you a new living or dining room, bedroom, office or even a self-contained annexe. Regardless of what space you want, we’ll develop it.
For those who have a garage integral to your house then in the majority of instances you won’t require planning permission to undertake the conversion providing that you aren’t increasing the footprint of the building. Even so, it is best to talk to your local council prior to contracting for garage conversions West Kirby because current building standards being applied by them might include floor insulation that the garage most likely 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 West Kirby will require Building Regulations approval. Even in the rare instances when approval is not needed (e.g. for those who have a very small, detached garage), it’s 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 a variety of aspects of the build, including:
- Sub-structure (if applicable)
The options really are endless – a converted garage can be used for just about any purpose, so long as the required work is completed. By way of example, if you are planning to convert your garage into a spare bedroom, the room must have good insulation, access to electricity and ideally it will need to be sound-proofed. Generally, at least one window will also be required.
