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

DOUBLE GARAGE CONVERTED TO A ONE BEDROOM ANNEXE LOCATION LEXDEN , COLCHESTER

From the first day we contacted Lexden Builders, it was clear how easy it was going to be to work with them and what an excellent outcome we would have. Their level of attention to detail was evident in the planning and at all stages of the work. When the work was complete, it was truly complete, with care taken to ensure aspects outside of the original scope were also left in the best condition possible. They were always tidy, polite, hardworking, perfectionists! and a delight to have working around the home. We now have a beautiful garage conversion and outdoor areas. They managed the entire project, making all the additional aspects like flooring, decorating, kitchen, bathroom really simple to organise. We have already, and will continue to highly recommend Lexden Builders.

Thank you!

Right from the initial quote Steve was clear and knew exactly what needed to be done and from day 1 of the build the guys were great, respectful, tidy, even when asking for additional work they fitted it in. Dealt with building controls right from day 1, this was a completely stress free build. Quality of build is better than we could of imagined and the additional room has changed the way we use our house. Now looking forward to be able to call upon Steve and the rest of the team when we are ready for the larger extension.
