We usually advise that a single integral garage would take around 1 to 2 weeks but this depends on drying times for wet plaster etc, and a double garage conversion around 2 to 3 weeks. These can differ depending on your requirements how many doors windows you will need etc.
It really depends. There are a few factors which will obviously change the price. Some examples: Have you got a single or double garage? Do you require an en-suite bathroom? Do you need a structural door opening? Do you want it painted in three different colours, do you want 10 or 20 downlights so as you can see the cost can vary so the best way to for us to give you an accurate quote is to come and see the garage.
It is unlikely that you will need planning permission, but we will do the necessary checks to find out.

We only ask for the final payment once you are 100% satisfied with your new room.

Not a chance! We do not employ any pushy salespeople. We instead prefer to speak with you honestly and truthfully and strive to earn your trust and most importantly to maintain it.
We can usually begin your garage conversion within a couple of weeks of getting the green light from you. This gives us time to match your brick and to make all the arrangements with your local authority. In this time we will also sign all the necessary contracts, take measurements of your garage for materials orders and set your site up ready for commencement.
We are renowned for the tidiness and cleanliness of our sites during and after our garage conversions. We protect your driveway from scrapes and scuffs by laying plastic sheeting and plywood boards, and use dust sheets inside your home. We aim to leave your property in the condition it was when we first arrived.
Of course! Everyone starts out at the same stage as you. We have been turning people’s building ideas into reality for years now, and we can do the same for you.
