At The Garage Consultancy we understand how much time and money goes into creating the perfect garage conversion. This is why we ensure our process remains transparent from start to finish so you always remain in control and have clear sight on how the development of the project is progressing.
We believe in building a long term working partnership that fully involves you in every stage, giving you the opportunity to raise any concerns you may have. Our customer support team are always on hand to help no matter how large or small your query.
Whether you get in contact via our website, email or by phone a member of our team will respond to arrange a suitable time to visit your property. This part of the process is completely free and provides you with the chance to ask any questions related to the conversion and allows us to assess the scope of work required and the options available to you.
Below we run through the four stages of our process – Consult, Design, Construct, Enjoy – so you get an initial understanding of how we can help you.
Once at your property we can take note of the measurements and dimension of the garage which will serve as the basis for our free quotation. Where required we will also take photographs of both the interior and exterior of the space which will help our support team to understand the full scale of the proposed work.
Our surveyor will run through the conversion options available so you can let us know what you want to achieve and we can offer suggestions to enhance and complement your vision. We can then return to our office and put together a quotation based on your specific requirements.
This will list a full breakdown of costs, including materials, labour, timescales and VAT which will be the final price you pay. There will be no hidden surprises later on in the project and if you wish to discuss the quotation we are always available to answer your questions.
We do not place any pressure on our customers and this part of the service is obligation free.
If you are happy to accept the quotation and proceed we will put you in contact with our architect so you can discuss your garage conversion ideas. This is where our draughtsman can look into the finer details of the project, such as insulation requirements and whether you require a partial or full conversion, along with any specifications you have requested for the build.
Our service remains a consultative process from start to finish which means we are keen to hear your opinions during the design stage. We are only happy if our customers are too and want to ensure you are completely satisfied before moving on to the next stage.
Before we can start work on the conversion we need to ensure that planning permission and building control applications have been submitted and approved. Then we are able to set a fixed date to begin work while introducing you to the foreman and dedicated Project Manager who will be overseeing the conversion. Where required, scaffolding will be erected and the materials required for the build will be ordered.
You Project Manager will be on hand from start to finish and will regularly visit the site and provide you with updates. If you need them at any time during the working day they are always available to answer your questions.
On average, converting a garage only takes a few weeks and before you know it the construction work will be finished and you will be able to use your beautiful new extension. Building Control will visit the site to ensure it meets the required regulations and will then provide a completion certificate as a final guarantee of the quality of work provided by our team.
This is the most exciting part of the project as it presents a blank canvas for you to create a new interior décor from the ground up. Whatever you plan to use your new garage space for we are proud to have helped add more value to your lifestyle at home.
