Garage Projects

Garage conversions come in differnt shapes and sizes.  Different people require different things from their garage and this shows in the diversity of garage conversions we deal with. 

You may be considering converting your garage to an extra room, expanding into your garage, using you garage for an office or simply renovating your garage for practical storage and maintenance of your car. ST Contracts work hand in hand with you to ensure your garage conversion is right for you.

The below is a good example of one of our recent garage conversions.

With this garage project the client requested that their original single garage be demolished and replaced with a double width garage accross the back of their entire garden.

The original garage had an asbestos roof so this needed to be removed by a registered asbestoes removal company that S.T Contracts arranged. The client wanted this garage to be more like a work shop which would have machinery in and lots of items secured to the walls.

We decided that it would be best to construct the garage using concrete blocks so the walls would be capable of having equipment fixed to them with out the worry of the fixings pulling free. Once the walls were constructed the roof was installed using 6"x2" timber joists with 18mm marine ply fixed on top covered with 3 layers of roofing felt.

On the block work externally we applied water proof sand and cement render and internally we applied sand and cement render with a smooth plaster finish which was left for the client to decorate. The main issue's for this project was the close proximity of the neighbouring properties and also keeping access for the road that runs behind.

This project was completed with in program, time and on budget.
