Garage Conversions in Caterham

If you have a garage that is underused, it makes perfect sense to have it converted into a space you can enjoy. Whether you desire office space, an extra bedroom or have ideas to open up your garage to extend another room, anything is possible.

Garage conversion for customer

Garage conversions in Caterham have become popular as a means for homeowners to increase the amount of usable living space in their home. Because the garage is already built (be it barebones) no planning permission is required to proceed with the project, so long as the conversion doesn’t extend the house outward.

In our opinion, garage conversions are an even better choice than attic conversions because they are more affordable and can give you a greater return, with most estate agencies agreeing it can add 10 to 15% to the value of a house.

How much does a garage conversion in Caterham cost?

The average cost to convert a garage in the Caterham area is £8,000 for a small garage and £15,000 for a large garage. Your garage conversion will probably fall somewhere between these two figures. The price depends on the square footage of your garage and the amount of work required to make it a habitable room.

These prices include reconfiguring the external wall to remove the garage door and replace it with a wall and window, raising the floor level to match your house, raising and creating the roof to match the floor, and boarding and plastering everything. The electrics and central heating will also be connected.

How long does a garage conversion take?

Garage conversions in Caterham typically take 2 to 3 weeks to complete with most projects falling somewhere in the middle.

The work is not disruptive because it can be carried out while you are at work and while your house is unoccupied. Your contractor will not require access to your main house so you can keep this locked or leave your key with them.

David fitted new windows and French doors for us. He is without doubt the best... tradesman we’ve ever used and we would highly recommend him to anyone. Punctual, professional, efficient and takes pride in his work. We were happy to leave David and his excellent team working in our house when we were out. Everything was left spotlessly clean and the work was done to a very highly standard very quickly. David fixed a broken gutter for no extra charge and readjusted a door, neither of which was part of the agreed job. Thanks a lot David for a flawless five-star service just before Christmas!read more

Hired David and his team on a repair and finishing job after having been let... down by another contractor. His approach was superb, professional, polite and very responsive. His price is higher than some, but he is well worth the extra investment. The value for money you get from him and his experience is exceptional and I have no regrets about using him or the work provided. This was not a straight forward job but David made it feel that way. Highly recommended.read more

One word: Superb. Thank you David for a brilliant job on replacing my... conservatory roof. No task was too big or small. David even took it upon himself to fix a broken gutter at no extra charge. The whole job was done at a very good price. Very clear communication, tidy and very professional at all time. I already have recommended him to my brother-in law and will continue to do so to others. Thank you David!read more

David is the best and most reliable contractor I have ever met. He converted... our courtyard into a conservatory. This was done at a very high standard. It looks amazing and is completely waterproof. He came across a lot of unforeseen problems in the process, e.g. had to clear a drain, move an extractor fan, level the ground area etc- which he attended to effortlessly as part of the job. He also assisted us with many ancillary and unrelated matters, e.g. putting my clock up against the wall, remove old window frames, liaising with another contractor on damp issues elsewhere in the house- all without charging extra as other contractors would do. He is super professional in the execution of his work and regularly updated us as to where we are in the process. He also has wonderful bedside manners, a superb sense of humour, and a humane touch. We always felt that we are in such good and honest hands. I would highly recommend him- we will never be using anybody else at our home again. Well done David and thank you so much for your help.read more

David texted me the morning after I had advertised the work. He turned up the... same day. As I was describing the work that needs doing: he kept saying, Yes, I can fix that ( French sliding door), Yes, I can fix that too ( conservatory door), yes I can replace that as well ( conservatory roof). He came back to me with the quote within 1 hour. Reasonable cost. And, yes he did all the work with professionalism. I must admit I had few other window-doors and conservatory specialists...All I can say is that they should go to David for some training. David is miles ahead of anyone I had around, in every aspect. I strongly recommend David - do not waste time with anyone else if Dave is available...and boy, he is not only smart and experienced but hard working and kind,too. Well done Dave, God Bless and keep up the good work!read more
