Professional Garage Conversions
Installing a home office or creating an open-plan ground floor for a larger living space are two popular reasons individuals are renovating their properties. Not only does it add value for future saleability, but in recent months we have been stuck inside and priorities have changed.
There are a lot of things to keep in mind before going ahead with your garage conversion in Barnsley. For example, with most integrated structures the walls are built to the same specification as the main house and there is some wiring already installed.
However, the walls will need checking for suitable insulation and the property will require new electrical circuits to be installed by a certified specialist. The wiring needs updating in accordance with Part P of the Building Regulations as there will be additional strain on the consumer unit and this can lead to overloading.
Things to Consider
Whether you want more living space or a quiet office to work in, we are happy to help. In addition to building regulations, we can assist you on a wide range of other elements of garage conversions before work begins, including:
- Property Ceiling Price
- Windows and Doors
- Floor Levelling
- Planning Permission
Your garage can be converted to suit your lifestyle and design preferences, but it is essential to make sure that you will get the money you spend on it back when it is sold in the future. Spending over the ceiling price is easily done if the property does not have easy access to parking after the structure is altered.
If the garage conversion is internal, you may not need to apply for planning permission, but there are exceptions. However, if you are unsure, we are available for a free consultation, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Reasons for Garage Conversions
Homeowners plan garage conversions and other home renovations for a variety of reasons. With everyone spending more time at home, space has become even more important. Some common uses of converted structures include:
- Cheapest Method of Home Extensions
- Office or Studio
- Guest Bedroom with En-Suite
- Annexe or Studio Apartment
- Large Living Room or Kitchen-Diner
As more people are working from home, creating an office space where you can be productive and close the door at the end of the day is a great benefit. You could be a hairdresser who wants to set up a home studio or an accountant with no space to put a desk.
We will work closely with you to professionally design a layout that suits your requirements and lifestyle. Once you are happy with the plan, we will give you a fully transparent quote for your garage conversion in Barnsley.
