Garage Conversions by Lexden Builders Ltd of Colchester

At Lexden Builders Ltd we pride ourselves on being able to transform a cold dark space into a warm and totally usable room. A standard garage conversion is built to local authority building control standards and in most cases planning permission isn’t required. Whatever you need; an extra bedroom, a home office, extended kitchen or playroom, we take care of everything from design through to completion.

Advantages of Garage Conversions

There are many advantages to converting your garage, these are just a few to consider.

Unused Space - Many homeowners do not use their garage to house their car. This is a significant square footage to use to just store junk. Garage conversions utilise this space and improve your living environment significantly.

Cost Effective - When converting a garage the shell is of course already their and most often the utility sources such as water, electric, gas are within easy reach. This reduces the costs of conversion and pound for pound means that these conversions are extremely competitive when compared to full home extensions.

Quick & Easy - Garage conversions are unlikely to be subject to planning permission and as a result work can commence immediately
