Most garage conversions make sense because the existing structure has already been built. As a result, all that usually needs to be done is to add drywall to the ceilings and walls and then cover the floor with tile or carpet. Some minor modifications may also need to be made to your existing electrical or plumbing lines, and you might also need to modify your ductwork so that this space will be properly heated and cooled. Overall, garage conversions are cost-effective, take relatively little time to complete and can be tailored to suit a variety of purposes. The work can even be performed in stages if you prefer to pay as you go rather than taking out a loan.
Typical garage conversion costs will vary based upon the size of the building, the type of renovation being performed, and the overall condition of its interior. Buildings that were constructed some time ago could need extensive electrical, plumbing, or HVAC upgrades, and this could increase the cost substantially. Garage conversions could also cost more if hazardous material such as asbestos needs to be removed in order to complete a particular project.

Q. What can I convert my garage into?
A. If you arenít using your garage to store your vehicle(s), it can be converted into an additional room, theatre, family room, games room, office, gym or storage room. Many people choose to use their garages to extend a room such as a kitchen or dining area. With this in mind, the type of work required will vary greatly. For instance, you may choose to remove the garage door and add a new wall. Luckily, planning permission is almost never required unless you will be expanding the original dimensions of the garage.
Q. Will I have to give up my parking space after my garage conversion?
A. Not necessarily. Many people opt to do partial conversions of their garages which can leave enough room for a medium sized car. You may also be able to create a living area above your parking space in order to continue using your garage for its intended purpose. This could require adding a second story onto your garage if it does not already have attic space. Donít worry - we have dozens of contractors in our extended network who can easily take on such a project.
