Garage Conversion

Garage Conversion Builders

Are you tired of walking into the garage only to find piles upon piles of clutter? For many, it’s all too easy to stock up on seldom-used items that, inevitably, are discarded out of sight. The garage, on the surface, seems like the perfect place to store such things. However, there is a better use for this space. Why not realise its full potential with a garage conversion, instead? For this, be sure to choose BMC Builders Kent Limited.

Why Build a Garage Conversion?

There are several reasons to opt for a garage conversion in Kent. Having an extra living space to accommodate a growing family is one such example. Whether it’s a sitting or dining room; kitchen, bedroom or bathroom, BMC Builders Kent Limited are here to help.

Why not even consider an office, gym or games room? The possibilities are nearly endless. Whatever you decide, look no further than us.

Furthermore, when attached to the house, a garage conversion has the potential to ‘brighten up your home. Installing glazed doors, for instance, can let more light into any adjoining rooms. This alone can bring about a new-found sense of wellbeing in one’s day-to-day life.

And when the time comes to move on, a garage conversion can become a financial asset. Indeed, although you may not be thinking about selling right now, this addition can add significant value to your property. Instead of showcasing a dusty, cluttered room to would-be buyers, be proud when you have something special to offer.

Things to Consider with a Garage Conversion in Kent

In most cases, you won’t require planning permission when it comes to a garage conversion in Kent. There are, however, exceptions to this rule. An example of this is if the work undertaken is external and involves enlarging the building. Furthermore, if it is your intention to convert a garage into a separate house, then planning permission may be required.

Likewise, if your property is a listed building, please contact your local planning authority to ensure all work is lawful. It’s often best to be on the safe side and discuss any proposals with the powers-that-be.

A garage conversion that creates any kind of living space is usually deemed a “change of use” to your property. Despite the often-minimal building requirements, it may still need building regulation approval. This refers to set standards for the design and construction of buildings.

The need for approval is predominantly for the health and safety of those in or around structures undergoing development. Before a garage conversion in Kent can commence, an application for approval under the Building Regulations might be needed.

The submission of a Building Notice is the most appropriate way to achieve this. If you’re uncertain whether your conversion requires building regulations approval, talk to us. We have the knowledge and experience to ensure that any work on your part is as stress-free as possible.
