Need more space but can't afford to move? Garage conversions create rooms for homeowners. Tuesday 8 July 2008 PDF Print Homeowners are overlooking a simple way to increase space within their homes. With the difficult housing market, many people need to maximise their living space without moving home. However, many in this situation forget that they already have another room; their garage. “A recent survey by lender, GE Money identified loft conversions and extensions as the most popular ways to create more space. Whilst both add value to your home, they also need significant investment,” says Andy Wallbanks from Bespoke Garage Conversions. “An ideal way to create more space is to convert your garage from a storage shed into an attractive, usable room, perhaps creating an extra bedroom, office, playroom or even a dining room.” With loft conversions averaging between £21,000 and £25,000, garage conversions are easier on the pocket too, costing just a third of the price. They can be completed in as little as ten working days, with minimal disruptions to normal family life. “The sign of a successful garage conversion is that you can’t see that your house ever had a garage!” advises Andy, “And a good conversion will add value to your property.” Whether you decide you need more living space to enjoy yourself or to accommodate a growing teenager or an elderly relative, make sure that you choose a contractor who offers workmanship guarantees. The best in the industry also offer a 10 year insurance-backed warranty and will help you with the process of gaining planning permission and building regulations approval. Before signing on the dotted line, also remember to check out their previous work to confirm that they’re an experienced firm, enquire whether they offer any guarantees, and ensure that you are given full details on how the conversion will progress and a comprehensive quote.
