ADDING PROPERTY VALUE

In addition to 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 value of a house.

Tapping into the unused potential of your garage may offer you a new living or dining area, bedroom, office or even a self-contained annexe. Regardless of what space you want, we’ll establish it.

Integral Conversions

If your garage is integral to your home in most cases planning permission will not be required to execute the conversion providing that you’re not increasing the footprint of the building. Nevertheless, you should consult with your local council because current building standards being applied by them can include floor insulation that the garage most likely will not have, but even if this is the situation Insulation can occasionally 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.

BUILDING REGULATIONS

Most garage conversions in Rossendale will require Building Regulations approval. Even in the scarce cases when approval isn’t needed (e.g. when you’ve got a very small, detached garage), it’s a smart 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 various aspects of the build, including:

  • Foundations
  • Sub-structure (if applicable)
  • Roof
  • Walls
  • Floor surfaces
  • Electricity
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Drainage

Below are some usual uses that others have made of this valuable space :-

  • Home office, no more rush hour trips to the office.
  • An extra bedroom for a growing family.
  • A ‘granny annexe’ (Double Garages)
  • A bigger kitchen
  • A home cinema
  • A lounge
  • A home-gym
  • Another living room
  • Or just an extension to an existing room

The options really are endless – Garage conversions in Rossendale can be used for virtually any purpose, as long as the necessary work is completed. For example, if you are planning to convert your garage into a spare bedroom, the room will need to have good insulation, access to electricity and ideally it will need to be sound-proofed. Most of the time, at least one window will also be required.
