Did you know that a garage conversion could boost your property value by up to 10%? A conversion of this type is one of the most cost-effective improvements you can make to a home, and it acts as a long-term investment you can immediately enjoy. Camberford Construction Ltd serves Camberley, Farnborough, Surrey and North East Hampshire as a garage conversion specialist and a skilled team of builders with impressive qualifications.
This page explains how our workforce turns neglected garages into modern living space.
There are several ways to approach the design of a garage conversion. Sometimes, the shape of a garage might already be ideal for intended use as an additional bedroom, a new kitchen, a dining area, a gym, a games room or a study. Most homeowners in Camberley and Farnborough unfortunately find that their garage is too long, too thin or both.
In such cases, our builders consider splitting the garage into two rooms using block walling. This type of conversion won’t suit all intended uses but, if you wish to add an extra toilet and some separate storage space to your home, this is an ideal solution. Please note that you do not require permission from your local authority if a garage conversion in Camberley, Farnborough or any of the surrounding areas doesn’t involve any structural alteration work.
The only exception to this might be if a property is period, listed or in a conservation area.
Under such circumstances, you will almost certainly require planning permission even for the most minor of modifications. If you feel unsure as to whether you need planning permission and approval for a garage conversion, please remember to give your local authority a call to find out more. The local authority will be Surrey Heath Borough Council for those in Camberley, and Rushmore Borough Council for those living in Farnborough.
Another important point to consider is that if you plan to convert a garage into a habitable room, the work must comply with the relevant Building Regulations. The regulations cover insulation, fireproofing, ventilation, structural integrity and other important matters of safety. Our builders have a full understanding of current legislation and work with you to design a garage conversion inside your budget that is functional and legally compliant.
As such, delivering a garage conversion isn’t always as straightforward as it might seem. It may involve all or any of the following criteria:
• Insulation Work
• Damp Proofing
• Electrical Wiring
• New Walls
• Window Fitting
• Door Fitting
Some builders in Camberley, Farnborough and the surrounding areas struggle to provide garage conversion services that cover every aspect of the job. When it comes to compliancy with regulations and working to a high standard, Camberford Construction Ltd is an especially versatile company offering exceptional workmanship standards across the board.
Choose our builders and enjoy a perfectly finished garage conversion that could instantly raise the value of your home and serve as an investment should you ever come to sell.
