How can someone tell if their Garage is suitable for conversion?
The first step with any garage conversion is to conduct an assessment of the existing structure, in particular the soundness of the foundations, walls and roof.
This will go a long way to revealing the extent of works required to create a comfortable living environment – so it’s a key part of the design stages. If the building is in an especially dilapidated state, it may be cheaper to knock down and replace.
Run us through the different stages of the Garage conversion process - what's involved?
Garage conversions fall into ‘change of use’ and so will require building regulations approval, in terms of:
• moisture proofing
• escape routes
• structural soundness.
How can someone tell if their loft is suitable for conversion?
You’ll want to start by assessing whether your roof space is suitable for conversion. Most are, but there are three main things to check:
Internal height. Measure from the top of the ceiling joist to underneath the ridgeboard in the apex. It needs to measure 2,500mm to suitably convert.
Roof pitch. Measure the angle of the roof. The higher the pitch angle, the higher the central head height is likely to be.
Footprint. As a minimum rule of thumb, internal rules should measure 5,500mm side to side, inclusive of chimney, and 7,500mm front to back.
Run us through the different stages in the loft conversion process - what’s involved?
Roof structure — Is it traditional cut rafter and purlin roof or a trussed roof? (See diagram on the left and read about roof structures below).
Height — Is there enough height within your loft? Note the minimum height for a traditional roof is 2.2 to 2.4 meters and the minimum height for a modern trussed roof is 2.4 to 2.6 meters.
Space — Is the loft space large enough to provide a usable room?
Chimneys or services — These don't pass through the loft space and will not need moving
Felt — Your roof has felt under the tiles or is fully weather tight. Note that if you don't have felt you will see the back of the roof tiles and the battens they are fixed to. If you have felt you will most likely see a black bituminous paper under the tiles and battens. Most modern houses will have felt
