Garage Conversions in Chesterfield

& the Surrounding Derbyshire Areas

If your Chesterfield home has a garage, when was the last time you parked your car in it? 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 & 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.
