Why Should You Convert Your Garage?
Along with the space you’ll gain from converting a garage, you can also add as much as 10% to your property’s resell price by embarking on a garage conversions Southend project. Although there are various other ways to add space to your existing accommodation, garage conversions have the advantage of acquiring extra room without giving up any of your garden space.
You will also experience very low levels of disruption from a garage conversion in comparison to other building works. As 90-95% of the project will take place within the four walls of your garage, you can expect the noise and dust to remain there too. With attached or integral garages, the last stage of the project will be to work on the access between the room and the main house.

How Can Different Types of Garages Be Converted?
Garage buildings are attached, detached or integral. All of these can be converted into a stylish living space for your household. However, the options available for each style will vary somewhat. If you have a single garage, then you might expect to gain around 14sqm, and this increases to 28sqm for a double garage.
Attached or integral garages already share a wall with the main body of your property. Some may even have an internal door linking your garage to the inside of your home, meaning that your conversion will usually be quite straightforward.
In comparison, detached garages are also a great option if you’re looking to create a games room, garden room, man-cave, annex or any other type of dream space. However, you may need planning permission if you are changing the use of the garage.
When Is Planning Permission Needed?
Many Southend garage conversions fall within the scope of permitted development, rather than requiring formal planning permission. However, full approval can be required if:
- Existing parking arrangements are in place
- There is a covenant which determines the building must be retained as a garage
- There is a previous property extension
