Find a Garage Conversion Expert on Bark

If you’re looking to make some extra space, a garage conversion could be just what you need. By taking advantage of the room in your garage, you can effectively net yourself an extension - without the hassle of actually extending your home.

Garage conversions are a very non-disruptive way to add space to your property. They are very low maintenance (at least until it’s time to make structural changes). Luckily, getting the garage conversion that you deserve is pretty simple too. At Bark, we have a whole range of garage conversion specialists that can help you turn your garage into the room of your dreams.

What should I look for when hiring a Garage Conversion expert?

So how do you go about picking the right person for the job? Comparing professionals is simple and getting quotes takes two minutes on Bark.com You can start the hiring process by narrowing down your choices to a few favourites. When picking your Garage Conversion Specialist, it’s best to have a look at reviews from previous customers and to ask some questions like:

  • What’s the best kind of conversion for my garage?
  • Can you show examples of previous work?
  • How long will the job take?
  • Do you provide a guarantee?
These are good places to begin when looking for the right professional.

What type of Garage Conversion is best for me?

When getting your garage converted, there are four main types of conversion available. After your specialist has visited your property, they will discuss with you what is the best option for your needs.


  • Full Integral Conversion - An integral garage conversion is one that changes a garage directly attached to your home. These garages are connected via a door and usually link to the kitchen. This common type of conversion is very cheap and can add up to 150 sq ft.² to your property. Many people choose to convert the garages into playrooms, home offices or utilities.

  • Double Integral Conversions - A double integral garage conversion is much similar to your regular conversion, except that it has twice the amount of space. The difference with this type of conversion is that you may choose to convert only one part of the garage. For example, you could leave part of the garage unconverted in order to keep your parking space. If you convert the entire garage, you can expect to have 300 extra sq ft.² to play with.

  • Partial Integral Conversions - Partial integral garage conversions are good for those with a lower budget. Because they are low-cost and cause minimal disruption, they have become very popular in recent years. Many homeowners will opt to keep the garage door in the same place as it was originally placed. The end of the garage can be made into a living space, usually split with a partition.

  • Detached Garage Conversions Detached garage conversions can demand additional work. There is also a possibility that planning permission will be needed too. However, if your detached garage is close enough to your home a direct link may be made for easier access. This will depend on the type of room you are converting your garage to.

Do I need a Garage Conversion?

If this is the first time you’re hearing of a garage conversion, you’re not alone. A growing trend with many homeowners, garage conversions are a less committal way to add value to your home, without having to get back on the market.

As mentioned earlier, getting your garage converted can up the value of your home – in fact, it can add up to 10% to the original price of your home, so it’s definitely something to consider if you’re thinking about selling your property in the future. As you can imagine, having an additional room will give you much more living space.

Depending on your own requirements, you can convert your garage into whatever type of room you wish. Converting your garage is also inexpensive, especially when compared to building typical extensions (such as conservatories). Not only will your garage conversion not need planning permission, but you can also partially convert your garage if you still want to keep some garage space.

How much does a Garage Conversion cost?

The fact that a garage conversion is so affordable makes it an attractive prospect for homeowners. This is in part to do with the fact that you don’t need to create any foundations or construct any walls to convert your garage. In addition, many garages have an electric supply, lowering building costs even more.

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

All attached garages (even if they are not integrated) can be converted. Detached garages may be converted but we will provide special advice as planning permission may be required.

Our role as a building firm is to bring your garage work up to Code (including insulation work) to ensure that it meets the strictest standards set by ourselves and the UK Government. This ensures that at the end of your work that you are presented with a building certificate.

Some work will require planning permission but we are experts in this process and can guide you from initial application to full planning permission. We can advise on your unique circumstances.

You don’t usually need planning permission to convert your garage into a room, as long as the work doesn’t involve extending your home. This is because garage conversions are usually allowed under permitted development rights. However, in some areas permitted development rights may be removed which could mean that you’ll need planning permission. You’ll need to check with your local council that garage conversions fall under permitted development rights in your area.

Providing that your property has sufficient off-road parking, a garage conversion will add value to your home by providing valuable extra living space. If the cost of your garage conversion is less than the extra value that it will add to your property, a garage conversion could be a cost-effective way to create additional living space in your home.

On average, it will take around 3-4 weeks to complete your garage conversion. This timescale depends on the specification of your garage conversion including whether you require plumbing, the number and type of windows and doors that are being added, and whether walls need to be knocked through.
