FAQ about Garage Conversions
|What are the common uses for a garage conversion?
|Garage conversions can be used for various purposes, including home offices, bedrooms, home gyms, guest rooms, or even a small kitchenette and bathroom.
|Do garage conversions require planning permission?
|In most cases, garage conversions won't require formal planning permission as they mainly affect the interior. However, it's essential to check with your local planning authority, as regulations can vary.
|How can I enhance natural light in my converted garage?
|You can replace the garage door with windows or glazed doors to introduce more daylight. Consider creative design options, such as a fully glazed wall, to maximize natural light.
|What insulation options are available for garage walls?
|For single-skin garages, internal insulation using studwork and plasterboarding is common. Insulated plasterboard and blown insulation are also viable options. Cavity walls can have insulation blown into the gap.
|Can I retain a parking space in a partial garage conversion?
|Yes, if you're opting for a partial conversion, you'll need to erect a fully-insulated internal dividing wall designed to provide 30-minute fire protection. This can be done in blockwork or timber studwork lined with fireline plasterboard on the garage side.
|Why should I consider working with DGH Building Services?
|DGH Building Services offers expertise in planning, building control, and on-the-ground experience, ensuring a seamless garage conversion journey with a predictable budget.
