Garage Conversions Glasgow
Garage Conversions are an increasingly popular way of adding value to your house by increasing the amount of living space. The principle benefit of a garage conversion is that it allows you to carry out a house extension without reducing the size of the garden, or reducing the light into existing rooms.
A converted garage can be used as an office or study, a kids play room or extra bedroom, or a new kitchen or dining room. Many people choose to convert their garage because the extra living space is much more valuable to them than an under-utilised garage, especially as it becomes more common to leave cars in driveways.
James Conservatories are one of the best garage conversion companies in Glasgow, and our team of builders place the emphasis on high quality building work that meets or exceeds required building regulations.
Garage Conversion Design
James Conservatories' team of garage conversion builders will work with you to design your ideal conversion, matching the new brickwork with the style of your existing property. Because all of our garage conversions are bespoke, you can fully customise the appearance of your conversion, including choosing the perfect double glazed windows to allow natural light into your new room.
One of the most important constraints when designing garage conversions is the size of the garage to begin with. The commonest types of garage conversion are single garages and double (or tandem) garages, although it is possible to convert detached garages or integral garages as well. When converting double garages you can further choose how much space to convert – you can either convert the whole area or just convert part of it, to leave a single garage. James Conservatories will discuss the pros and cons of the various options with you to help make an informed decision about what design is right for you.
Garage Conversion Planning Permission
Garage conversions in Scotland do not typically require particular planning permission because they do not involve building a new structure, or changing the designated use of a property. However it is advisable to check with the relevant local authority prior to starting building work, as it can be expensive to reverse completed work in the event that your garage conversion plans were not permitted, and this could cause problems when you come to sell your house.
Garage Conversion Building Regulations
Building regulations, unlike planning permission, are highly relevant to all garage conversions. Garage conversion building regulations include factors such as wall insulation, ventilation, damp proofing, drainage, and the infilling of the existing garage door with a suitable, well supported construction. Detached garage conversions can also be subject to further regulations.
Modern garage conversion building regulations can be quite exacting in order to bring the garage area up to habitable condition, but because of our experience we are able to advise you of all relevant building regulations and how likely they are to affect you.
