Garage conversions are a good solution to increase space and potentially value to your house. Plenty of garages aren’t used as practical spaces, therefore a garage conversion can be a way to reclaim space and put it to more efficient use. Garage conversions can be used to add living or utility rooms, a bedroom, home office or bathroom, or extend a kitchen. Most garage conversions do not require planning permission so long as you don’t intend on increasing the dimensions of your home, however when thinking about a garage conversion it is critical to check with your Local Authority, as some constraints can apply, for example on the amount of off-road parking spaces inside an area. The garage conversion will also need to adhere to building regulations on drainage, insulation, damp proofing, among other things.
When undertaking your garage conversion, have a structural survey done on the pre-existing garage in order to establish the amount of work which will be done. This will determine the best way to perform the conversion. The walls of your existing garage will typically need improving from a single skin design to a cavity wall. Flooring will most likely require raising to meet the level of your property. Roofs will need either repair or completely transforming to a tiled pitch roof style. The existing garage door will most likely be infilled with a new brick wall and also have a window installed. The new room will require insulating to the standard of habitable rooms.

Deal is really a town in Kent, England, UK. It can be found on the English Channel 8 miles north-east of Dover as well as eight miles south of Ramsgate. It’s actually a previous fishing, mining and also garrison town. Closely tied in with Deal are the towns of Kingsdown, Sholden and Walmer, the second being where Julius Caesar first arrived in Britain (according to the best guess by historians).
