Garage Conversions In Tameside

Many homes use their garage as storage rather than as a place to keep their car dry. We find that family garages are not really used as the home for the family saloon or 4WD, but rather as a storeroom for broken furniture, worn out tyres, unused children’s toys and objects that “may perhaps” get used again someday (but hardly ever do!). Does that seem like your garage?

There is a better use for such a big component of your property than a simple clutter store room! Take advantage of the misused space and turn your garage into a functional, spectacular room with a garage conversion.

For many years cars have become ever wider whilst single garages have continued to be the same width, making it impossible to open the doors of your car in it these days, but while the car has outgrown your garage, a typical single garage is still approximately 150 sq ft. which offers the possibility of creating a significant amount of additional living space for you to enhance your home. A double or much larger garage can offer even more possibilities.

The beauty of a garage conversion is that it’s more cost-effective than a regular extension (or a loft conversion) as the foundations, walls and floor are already there and (in the larger part of cases) planning permission is not called for. It is a relatively economical way of adding living space to your home and making it possible for you to avoid the huge expense and disruption of moving home to get the extra room that you really need.

Picture the possibilities; an additional bedroom, a dedicated home office space or even that gym you have often wanted. Ultimately a garage may be converted into whatever your heart desires with the only restrictions being your creativity and budget (subject to building regulations). Popular options for garage conversions include: an extra bedroom, a boy or girls’s playroom, a home cinema, gym, home office, artist’s studio, workshop, craft room, granny flat (or flat for a son/daughter/family carer).

Research by Virgin Money suggests that transforming your garage could add approximately ₤ 40,000 to the value of your residential or commercial property, making it an extremely budget-friendly way to add a substantial amount of value and added square footage to your residential or commercial property.

Every single project we undertake is fully compliant with all legal building codes and regulations, giving you complete peace of mind that your newly converted space has been built to the highest possible standards.
