Garage Extension & Conversion
in the South East
A standard single garage is approximately 150sq ft. With the size of todays cars compared to when the garage would of ordinally been built it’s far to small to fit a family car. However over the last few years we have removed several the existing garage and extending both in width and length making it easier to fit a family car and also adding additional storage.
Great garages don’t need to come with a great environmental cost. During our projects, we strive to recycle and divert as much waste from landfills as possible. That’s why we have carefully chosen two companies to deal with our waste.
If your project is local to Maidstone, our clean hardcore and soil gets taken to Gallager quarry located near Maidstone Hospital. This is then screened and resold resulting in none going to landfill.

On the other hand that’s a lot of potential extra living space for you to convert into an integral part of your house. For those with a double garage the perfect solution may lie in a ‘part conversion’, where typically the front or rear of the garage is retained to house the lawnmower or your bicycle whilst the rest of the garage is converted into a habitable room.
The possibilities for your garage conversions room are endless, but whatever you want to use the extra space for we can help you plan and build your garage conversion into:
- Extra bedroom with or without en-suite facilities
- Games room
- home office or study
- Utility room
- dining room
- home cinema
There are many good reasons to consider a garage conversion over other types of extensions:
- Add value to your property
- Don’t lose garden space
- Don’t lose driveway
Do you charge for estimates?
Our estimates are free and no obligation.
Are you insured to carry out work on my premises?
Yes, we have full liability insurance up to 2 million pound to cover us for all works undertaken.
Can I see examples of your work locally?
Yes, once we have done the initial estimate you can view previous work if required.
Do I need planning permission?
Garages are considered a permitted development, You can build a garage without planning permission but it has to follow a very complicated set of rules. Needles to say we would arrange our architect to visit to give clarification and to apply for a lawful development certificate before works start.
You don’t usually need planning permission for a garage conversion, as long as the work is internal and doesn’t make the garage larger. However, be sure to check your permitted development rights if you live on a housing estate, as some properties may have a condition that requires the garage to remain as a parking space.
