Find a local, reliable garage conversion specialist

Thinking of getting your garage converted? If you’re looking to add more liveable space to your home, transforming an underused garage might be the perfect solution. A skilled garage specialist will make the conversion look like it’s always been part of the main house. Post a job today and hire with confidence.

The benefits of converting your garage

If you barely ever park your car in your garage, or only use it as a storage space for your bikes, then converting it into a living space comes with plenty of benefits:

  1. A garage conversion can add a lot of value to your property by increasing your home’s liveable space.
  2. The extra space could giving you the chance to expand your home with a new, bespoke room. You could get an extra bedroom, dining room, home office, cinema room, home gym, utility room, or a playroom.
  3. A garage conversion is cheaper than other expansion projects like loft conversions and house extensions. It also expands your home without stealing space from your garden.

Make sure you consider how much available parking there is on your street. Removing off-street parking in an area with few parking spaces can make your home less desirable to potential buyers.

What can a garage conversion specialist help you with?

Garage conversion specialists can convert a range of garage types into different living spaces. From bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms to dining rooms, if you have an idea for your new room, a loft conversion specialist can make it happen.

The three main types of garages you can convert are:

Integral garageAttached garageDetached garage
Integral garages are a type of attached garage that are built within the walls of your house and tend to have a door that connects your garage to your home.Attached garages are attached to your home by a shared wall, but also have their own walls and roof that you will need to reinforce during the conversion.  Detached garages are free standing and are entirely separate from your home. They require the most building work to connect them to your house with new insulated walls, plumbing, and other roof work.      

In order to fully convert your garage, your garage conversion specialists will:

  • Replace your garage door with walls
  • Work with a team of specialists – including plumbers, electricians and heating engineers – to install new windows, heating, insulation and plumbing
  • Plaster and paint your new room’s walls

Factors to consider before you hire a garage conversion specialist

It’s really important that you choose a reliable garage conversion service to carry out work in your home. Failing to do this can result in stress and costly repairs. 

Before you hire, you should do your research to ensure that your garage conversion specialists:

  1. Are an experienced company with a strong history of high quality projects
  2. Have all the licenses and insurance needed to protect you and their workers
  3. Have a good range of positive reviews from previous customers vouching for their reliability
  4. Are available to carry out the work in the timeframe you need it by
  5. Are quoting a price and payment option that you are happy with, having compared the quote with other local garage conversion companies

A local tradesperson is more likely to respond quickly, as they’ll be right around the corner and ready to help.

What planning permission do you need for a garage conversion?

You don’t usually need to apply for permission for a garage conversion, as long as you’re only carrying out internal work that won’t enlarge your house. 

If you’re planning on turning a detached garage into a separate house, then you might have to apply for permission. You can discuss your proposal with your Local Planning Authority to make sure you have the right building regulations approval. 

If you live in a new housing development, a conservation area, or in a listed building, we recommend you speak to your local planning authority before proceeding, as different rules may apply.

For more details on your permitted development rights for a garage conversion, read our planning permission guide or visit the Planning Portal website.

Questions to ask a garage conversion specialist before you hire

Whether you want a new bedroom with an ensuite, or a kitchen extension, we recommend you ask the following questions before you hire a garage conversion specialist:

Do you have public liability insurance and what does this cover?

While it’s not a requirement for them to have it, it’s a good idea for your garage conversion specialists to have public liability insurance to cover you and them against any accidental damage done to your home or personal injuries. Make sure to always ask your builder what insurance they have before you hire them. This will guarantee protection for both parties and ensure your builder is legally compliant.

How many years of experience do you have?

Knowing how many years of experience your garage conversion builder has will allow you to pick a tradesperson who you are confident has enough experience to carry out a high quality job. When you’re finding a garage conversion service through Rated People, head over to their profile to check out the pictures on their work gallery and their ratings and reviews.

Do you use subcontractors? If so, are they licensed and insured?

If your garage conversion specialist is planning on using subcontractors, then it’s a good idea to confirm the qualifications and insurance coverage of everyone who will be working on the project. Your garage conversion service will almost definitely be using a team of specialists, including plumbers, heating engineers and electricians. Anyone working with gas needs to be registered with Gas Safe, and anyone installing electrics (in England and Wales) needs to be Part P certified to be able to self-certify their work. These tradespeople will have valid documentation that you can ask to check.

What is your estimated timeline for completing the project?

Knowing what the estimated timeline is for completing the project will help you set realistic expectations about how long your garage conversion will take to complete.

How much will the job cost?

Asking how much the job will cost will help you budget for your project and will ensure price transparency before you hire. How much you’ll end up spending depends on the scope of your project, and where you live in the UK, so make sure you add plenty of details when you post a job.

Facts are you were asked to leave after taking advice from other tradesman and building control that observed your work in detail, you broke your own building contract, you tried pulling a fast one trying to charge us twice with your supplier for the staircase, which doesn’t meet building regs as the roof is not to drawing - I can go on, but to call yourself a trustworthy builder that for sure is incorrect and the tradespeople who are finishing this job are testament to that.

Horrible ,we had garage conversion done by Lee, 2 months after water started to leak from the ceiling, called him to check it, he came said he will take ceiling down, check if this is condensation, dry it and put it up again, we set the date to come and fix it, 7 months later nothing has been done, Lee didn’t answer any emails or phone calls, we had to take ceiling down ourselves to find out he cut pipe from bathroom fan just to make the wall look straight causing condensation
