Property prices are rising exponentially in Cambridgeshire as more house buyers are seeing the benefits of moving away from built-up urban areas and into more rural, commuter-friendly settings. This can be great for those looking to sell, but for those looking to buy locally, not quite the same valuable prospect. We’re seeing more homeowners in Cambridgeshire than ever extend into the living spaces they already have as a result – with garage conversions fast becoming our most popular renovation offering in the area.
Garage conversions are a quick and affordable renovation compared to many other property projects, but that doesn’t mean our teams are in and out as swiftly as possible. Rather we offer a full end-to-end service that helps realise your conversion dream from initial planning stages right through to completion. This includes:
- All designs and plans
- Planning permission applications; where applicable
- Insulation installation
- Ventilation installation
- Sound proofing
- Electricity and water supply installation
If you need more living space in your home for any reason, many people’s default choice is to sell up and move on to a larger house. However, with less properties yet higher prices than ever, this simply isn’t an option for many. Instead, converting space you already have but don’t fully utilise provides added value – to both your living standards and your property. Refresh Renovations Cambridgeshire frequently manage garage conversion projects that see them become additional bedrooms, utility rooms, playrooms, home offices or even extensions of kitchens already in place. The possibilities are endless once you leave the mindset of grey, concrete, cold storage facility!
The cost of your garage conversion will depend largely on how much work there is to be carried out as well as the existing space and the condition of it. Most garage conversions cost somewhere between the £5,000 - £7,500 mark, but more ambitious projects can run into considerably higher costs. Refresh Cambridgeshire work with budgets of all sizes, so don’t be afraid to get in touch and see what we could achieve for you with yours.
The Refresh team deal with garage conversions throughout Cambridgeshire every day, and we understand the area and its properties well. Our years of experience and general geekiness when it comes to all things renovations helps us work with homeowners to deliver only the best, on-time and to-budget conversions; of all shapes, sizes and types.
Generally speaking, most garage conversions do not require planning permission as they are simply renovating existing building material – but where this is not the case, Refresh Cambridgeshire will help design your project in a way that maximises its chances of permission success and we’ll even submit the paperwork for you. We know the Cambridgeshire LPAs (Local Planning Authorities) well and work with them frequently.
We work through Cambridge, Duxford, Ely and Huntingdon and all surrounding areas.
Integral garage conversions; that is converting a garage already attached to your property; is the most common form of conversion we manage.
