Many garage conversions will require some roofing work. The scale of any roofing work done on your garage conversion will be based upon the type and condition of the roof already on the garage and on the scale of your specification, for example if you intend on transforming a flat garage roof to a pitched one as part of the conversion. Conducting a survey on the existing garage will allow you to ascertain the extent of the work that needs to be done. If the existing garage roof requires repairs, give some thought to having the complete roof redone in a new style. Pitched tile roofs will typically suit the appearance of the property, but a flat roof can be more affordable.
There are three main varieties of garage roofs: pitched, flat and the less common example where the garage is already a part of a two-storey structure and has a room above it. All three varieties have to meet building regulations as part of the garage conversion. The insulation regulation is different depending on the sort of roof, but a garage conversion will have to meet the insulation values for a habitable room. The other important aspect with garage conversions roofing is the ceiling height, which may alter as part of the conversion if the pre-existing floor must be lifted to accommodate extra insulation.

Deal is a town in Kent, England, UK. It can be found on the English Channel eight miles north-east of Dover as well as eight miles south of Ramsgate. It’s really a former fishing, mining as well as garrison town. Very closely associated with Deal are the towns of Kingsdown, Sholden and Walmer, the second being where Julius Caesar first of all came to Britain (in accordance with the very best guess by historians).
