GARAGE CONVERSIONS IN CHESTERFIELD
When was the last time you actually used your garage to park your car? If you can’t remember, or you simply never have, you’re not alone. A study by Sainsbury’s Car Insurance showed that 78% of those with access to a garage used it for something other than parking. In many cases, modern cars simply don’t fit in garages that were often built in the 50s and 60s. Instead, these spaces have become storage areas for ladders, tools, freezers, bikes, lawnmowers and much more.
For many homeowners, however, garage conversions have turned these dark, musty spaces into built-for-purpose rooms. As concerns about the housing market and general economy rise, an increasing number of people are adopting the ‘improve, don’t move’ approach.
Whether it’s prohibitively expensive moving costs or a simple wish to stay in a much-loved home and neighbourhood, property development projects have continued to rise in popularity.

GARAGE CONVERSIONS AND THE BUILDING REGULATIONS
Like any reputable building contractor, we convert your garage in full compliance with the current Building Regulations. When combined with our flawless workmanship, you receive a finished space that not only looks great but meets all relevant performance and safety standards too.
In most cases, garage conversions fall within your permitted development rights. If your proposed work is all internal and doesn’t involve enlarging the structure in any way, you won’t need to apply for planning consent from the local authority.
Even if your conversion doesn’t need planning permission, it will need to comply with the UK Building Regulations.
As fully functioning rooms in their own right, converted garages must meet minimum standards for electrical work, ventilation, insulation, heating, plumbing, damp proofing, fireproofing and structural integrity.
Failure to meet these standards will result in the need for rectification work. As such, it’s essential to hire a reputable building company from the outset. At DC Renovations, our garage conversions in and around Chesterfield are always fully compliant.
We happily assume the responsibility for arranging building control inspections on your behalf. In fact, with our start-to-finish project management, we make every aspect of your conversion easy, efficient and hassle-free.
This frees up your time to focus on buying furniture and accessories for your new room and making memories in it.

In addition to garage conversions, the team at DC Renovations in Chesterfield also specialises in loft conversions. It's an excellent way to extend your living space even further, plus it adds value to your home.
IMAGINE HOW YOUR LOFT COULD BE TRANSFORMED
A loft can be converted into an additional bedroom (with or without en suite bathroom), a child's playroom, an office for home workers, an art studio, library and gaming rooms, or even a home cinema room. In fact, the limit is really your imagination.
At DC Renovations, we can guide you in your ideas and advise you on legislation and whether planning permission is necessary (for example, if the work involves extending your roof space) to see your ideas become a reality.
