How much does a Garage Conversion cost?

The cost of a garage conversion in the UK can vary significantly depending on various factors such as the size of the garage, the scope of work involved, the quality of materials used, and the location of the property. On average, however, garage conversions in the UK typically range from £10,000 to £25,000 or more.

Here's a breakdown of some of the main cost factors to consider:

  • Size of the Garage: Larger garages will naturally require more materials and labour, resulting in higher costs. Conversely, smaller garages may be more cost-effective to convert.

  • Structural Changes: If significant structural alterations are required, such as removing load-bearing walls or reinforcing the foundation, this can increase the cost of the conversion.

  • Insulation and Damp Proofing: Proper insulation and damp proofing are essential to ensure the converted space is comfortable and free from moisture-related issues. These additional measures can add to the overall cost.

  • Electrical and Plumbing Work: Depending on the intended use of the converted space, you may need to install additional electrical outlets, lighting fixtures, or even plumbing for a bathroom or kitchenette. These installations can contribute to the overall cost.

  • Finishes and Fixtures: The choice of finishes and fixtures, such as flooring, wall coverings, doors, and windows, will also impact the cost. Opting for high-quality materials and custom features will naturally increase the overall expenditure.

  • Permits and Regulations: It's important to factor in any necessary permits and regulatory requirements, as obtaining approvals from local authorities may incur additional costs.

  • Labour Costs: Labour costs for skilled tradespeople, such as carpenters, electricians, plumbers, and decorators, will make up a significant portion of the total cost. Labour rates can vary depending on the region and the experience level of the professionals hired.

  • Contingency Budget: It's advisable to set aside a contingency budget of around 10-20% of the total project cost to account for any unforeseen expenses or changes to the initial plan.
