Here at H & R Building Ltd, we provide a start-to-finish service for garage conversions in the Kent region. These projects offer the ideal solution for homeowners looking to make the most efficient use of the available space within an existing structure. According to research carried out by Sainsbury’s Car Insurance, only 22% of people with access to a garage use it to park their car. Instead, garages have become a makeshift storage space for all manner of items such as tools, ladders, freezers, exercise bikes, decorating materials, lawnmowers and much more. As a result, an increasing number of people are turning to building contractors to convert garages into habitable spaces.
From our base in Sittingbourne, our builders have direct access to our primary service areas throughout Kent, including Gillingham, Maidstone, Rochester and Sheerness.
Our building contractors share over two decades of trade and industry experience, so we bring garage conversions to completion swiftly, efficiently, on time and within budget. We work in line with any specification, creating additional floor space to suit an array of requirements. From a new bedroom to a home office, and from a second living room to a children’s playroom, we turn any vision or concept into a stunning reality.
As an added benefit, converting your garage means you can avoid the stress and cost of moving out of a much-loved family home. Not only does this mean staying within school catchment areas, it also saves money on stamp duty, solicitors fees and moving company charges.
To discuss options for your own garage conversion project, please call us on 01795 487 106 or 07873 865 975. One of our builders will visit your home in Sittingbourne, Maidstone, Rochester or any of the neighbouring areas to listen to your plans, provide advice and offer a free, no-obligation quotation.
At H & R Building, we take great pride in our reputation as locally trusted building contractors. As such, we complete all our garage conversions to impeccable standards and in full compliance with current UK Building Regulations. Fortunately, in most cases, these projects don’t require planning permission as they fall within the classification of ‘permitted development’.
As rooms with functioning electrical systems, a Building Control officer needs to inspect them and sign off their safety. In addition, garage conversions must meet minimum standards for insulation, ventilation, plumbing, heating, fireproofing, damp proofing and structural integrity.
While garages themselves don’t tend to differ a great deal, the specifications of the rooms inside them do, so our builders manage every aspect of these projects on a case-by-case basis. Having completed countless garage conversions throughout Kent, our customers can rest assured that we achieve outstanding results at the first time of asking, as evidenced in our glowing testimonials.
We work with the fabric of your existing home to create a seamless new room for your home without eating into surrounding land and reducing garden space.
The building contractors at H & R Building recognise we work at people’s homes, so we undertake our services in a clean and tidy manner. We treat each property with the care and respect we would expect from builders at our own.
