As we are one of the most experienced garage convertors in East Anglia you can be rest assured we can turn a cold and under-utilised garage into a warm and habitable room. Each garage conversion is completely unique, carried out to your personal requirements. We can convert all or just part of your garage too, leaving space for bicycles and lawnmowers etc. A garage conversion is an excellent investment as you will add considerable value to the price of your property.
Most garage conversions do not require planning permission this is because most properties have what is called their permitted development rights. Permitted development rights is a category of work as prescribed by the government which can be undertaken without the need of planning permission, but it will require building control approval as you are turning a storage area into a habitable space. Building control will take out various visits throughout the project to view the removal of the garage door, insulation to the ceiling, insulation to the walls and floor, new brickwork, window installation, electrics and will provide final certification once completed. Lexden garage conversions will lease and are happy to arrange all of this for you with building control the fee is usually £350 plus vat. Once the paperwork is complete for building control and the fee is paid building can normally commence within 5 days prior to this.
