Q&A

Not all garages are suitable for a straight conversion. Old garages, particularly those that were built more than 25 years ago, often have inadequate structural strength and brittle foundations. To be sure, you will need to be advised by an architect or contractor as to whether your particular foundations are strong enough. If they aren't, it is not unusual for garages to be knocked down and then rebuilt from scratch. However, if your garage is made of brick or block and was constructed within the last 25 years, the chances are it will be eligible for conversion without too much alteration.

In terms of adequate garage size -most single car garages in the UK are suitable for some type of conversion. If you are unsure however, it is worth asking friends, family or neighbours who have had garage conversions and comparing dimensions.

Below are the key works that are completed when converting a garage.

1. Replacing the garage door


The garage door must be replaced with a block wall, resistant against rain and wind. This is a straightforward job as it simply involves filling in the space left by the door and (if in the design) leaving room for a window.


2. Flooring

The majority of garages have rough and uneven flooring, and so need to be leveled out with a new layer of concrete. Upon this new slab you will be able to add a nice even carpet or tiled floor.


3. Wall installation and insulation


Stud walls are typically used as the internal structure of a garage conversion, with insulation packed in to increase energy efficiency. Wall types may differ slightly however depending on the type of garage that you have.


4. Door and window installation


Doors and windows are an essential part of making your garage conversion feel like a more integrated part of your home. The amount of windows and doors will be decided on during the design stage and will vary depending on what you are going to use your conversion for.


5. Roof insulation


Much like the walls, the roof will also need to be filled with mineral wool to preserve heat and save energy.


6. Utilities


The extent to which your garage will need new electrical and plumbing work will of course depend on what you intend to use your new space for. Bedrooms and living rooms shouldn’t need more than a few socket installations, while kitchens and bathrooms will require more intricate plumbing and gas pipe work.

Below are some practical guidelines to help assess your own loft.

What’s Your Roof Type?

There are two main roof types in the UK; the traditional type built before 1965 and the modern “trussed” type built post 1965.

The traditional roof has M shaped rafters that meet in the centre of the loft and must have a minimum height, at its highest point, of 2.2 metres. Anything under this height will not pass building regulations. This measurement is to allow for adequate headspace and to ensure that sufficient insulation can be packed in.

Modern trussed roofs have rafters forming a W shape and a minimum essential height of 2.4 metres to pass building regulations. This modern type of roof is more difficult to convert than the older version, as the W shape of the rafters take up more room in the loft. This rafter structure isn’t impossible to remove, although it is likely to come at an extra cost.


What’s Your Roof Angle?

The steepness of your roof would ideally be 30 degrees or above -as the higher the angle, the higher the central head height and the larger the loft space is to work in.




Does Your Loft Have Enough Space To Begin With?

It is generally advised that your loft measures at least 5.5 metres from side to side and 7.5 metres from the front to the back. This amount of space is considered optimal but is by no means obligatory -if your loft dimensions don’t measure up, smaller loft designs are very often possible.

Do you have enough access space to your loft?

In alignment with building regulations, any loft that is converted into a bathroom, bedroom, study or playroom must be connected to the lower floor by a permanent staircase. It is therefore important to consider the space that will be lost on the floor below to accommodate the stairs leading up. Of course, the steps need not be particularly wide, and in most cases a fixed ladder or spiral staircase will do the job when space below is limited.

The actual build stage of a loft conversion varies a lot depending on what type of conversion it is. You can find more about loft conversion types on our guide here: https://www.propertymakeover.co.uk/our-loft-conversion-guide
