Very pleasant to deal with. Professional and efficient service, nothing was too much trouble with initial discussion meeting. Still deciding on whether to go ahead with the extension at the moment.

Very prompt and professional with a wealth of experience and advice freely given. The project is on-going and needed the advice to progress the planning and building regs applications. Would recommend them to others which is surely the highest regard.

Foundations Up Construction Ltd & DIY Doctor Ltd Q&A

Company Q&A

How can someone tell if their Garage is suitable for conversion?

Most garages are suitable for a single storey conversion but many people do not realise that some of the work will be subject to Building Regulation approval. The garage was built to store the car so when it is changed to a habitable space the insulation and fire regulations have to be met. We are fully conversant with the regulations for converting garages and can seek all relevant approvals on your behalf.

Run us through the different stages of the Garage conversion process - what's involved?

The fist stage is to discuss with Building Control the extent of the fire regulation and insulation work. Usually this means upgrading the ceiling to a 1-hour fire check ceiling and adding insulation to meet the requirements. Garages are also usually 100mm below the existing property floor level so this floor has to be raised after being waterproofed. Once the floor and ceiling have met Building Regs, work can start on the layout of the new room. Cables for lights and sockets will have been provided in the ceiling space, from the existing consumer unit (which may need upgrading if there is insufficiant room on the board). Any drainage can be dug down through the existing floor slab providing there is a manhole adjacent to the building. Connection to exiting sewers also requires permission from Building Control. Working with the client at every step we can ensure that nothing is missed out and no work needs to be re-done through a missed drain rodding point for example. We have some great testimonials from previous garage conversion customers and would be happy to take you along to show you what can be achieved. You can see more about converting a garge on our partner website, DIY Doctor -

How long have you been in business?

We have been in the building business for over 25 years, initially as builders, then we founded DIY Doctor, a website to help homeowners do some of the work themselves to save money. Now that DIY Doctor has grown into one of the countries largest home improvement websites, we have focussed on our building arm again, launching Foudations Up in 2016 in response to the many enquiries from local customers.

What guarantee does your work come with?

We provide a lifetime guarantee on all craftsmanship. We will honour all manufacturers guarantees on materials.

What do you love most about your job?

Taking a clients dream or idea and turning into a tangible reality is a great feeling. We know houses inside out. There is no problem we have not encoutered and we can be trusted to put it right.

What inspired you to start your own business?

The feeling of making a difference is terrific. When a client has a problem, be it simply a blocked toilet, or the need for lots of extra space with an extension or conversion, to solve that problem for them is a good feeling.

Why should our clients choose you?

Our guys are tradesmen, not handymen. We are craftsmen only interested in giving you the best possible job for the right price. We work with transparency, integrity and hionesty and we have many many references and testimonials to prove it!
