Add Value to Your Home
Planning on selling your property in the near future? By turning your garage into an extra bedroom, you can significantly increase the value of your home. As most cases do not require planning permission, converting your garage is a quick, affordable and non-disruptive way to boost your property’s position on the housing market.
With a fully in-house service, our builds are custom-made for your property. If you require an above-garage extension above your conversion, our skilled builders are happy to oblige.
No footings are required for our garage conversions, and we can create an access point via the door into the main property, where applicable. A highly versatile process, we offer a truly bespoke service in the Camberley and Farnborough areas that takes your needs into account.
How Long Will My Garage Conversion Take?
This question isn’t simple, as no two projects will be alike. It boils down to what you’re planning – a new kitchen will take longer than a home office or playroom. From the initial consultation to the final sign-off, rest assured that our team at Surrey House Builder will work diligently to ensure your new garage conversion will be completed within the shortest time.
What About Building Regulations?
As a garage conversion is considered an official change of use, certain regulations must be followed. We’re happy to offer advice in this regard as we’re fully aware of what is expected, such as:
Soundproofing and insulation installation in the floor, walls, and loft area will be necessary. As with all construction, escape routes in the case of fire must be addressed with appropriate fireproofing measures in place. Our team will also need to examine and reinforce the current foundations in some cases. The entire structure will require moisture-proofing proofing, and we’ll ensure good ventilation so no dampness can build up over time.
Naturally, the electric, heating, and plumbing systems will require upgrading with new installations carried out depending on what the new space will be used for. Certified professionals must carry these out.
