Concrete buildings by their very nature are very heavy, certainly in the case of Lidget Compton, as well as bulky. So large lorries are employed to deliver these garages around the country (mainland only). These specialized lorries, at great expense, come with special lorry mounted forklifts which ensure a safe a secure passage for your new building into your home. This equipment ensures there is no damage to your property, the garage or the installers. Delivery time can vary depending on the time of the year but there is sometimes available a fast track delivery service if your needs are urgent.

The thicker steel reinforced precast sectional panels provide better strength as the steel provides extra strength to the concrete used. They also insist on robust steel rafters which are fully galvanized for long life as well as thicker roof sheets. The steel doors are pre-framed on all their buildings which ensures a superb sturdy fit and special unique flashing’s on the roof improves the garage general roof design. These details extend through to only using direct employees which ensures their ethos of providing the best from start to finish can be maintained throughout the build process of these Lidget Compton garages.

Pressure Treated Garages

How to Convert a Garage and Create a Garage Conversion

The garden can be an underused area of the home occasionally but normally is full of garden sheds, summerhouses or garden workshops. All these buildings have different uses – the garden sheds for storing tools, furniture, bike and lawn mowers – the summer house for relaxing in and the garden workshop for working in and indulging in one’s hobby.

The garage is a different beast. Made from timber, concrete, plastic or brick their main purpose is for storing the car and its accessories and keeping them dry. Often, nowadays, these garages are built into the house with direct access into the house. Or in the houses built from the thirties alongside the house. These normally were made from brick. In all instances, the garage is a great addition to the home.

If you have moved into a house without a garage many people take the decision to add one so their ‘pride and joy’ the car can have its own home. These extra garages are mostly made from timber or concrete, and you can examples on this web site, or sometimes plastic or metal. The timber garage tends to look more at home in the garden but it’s important that this is made from pressure treated timber.

The concrete garage is widely used as well. The concrete is very long lasting with most garages having a guarantee, however, you can get buildings with 10 years guarantee. You can examples on our web site. Obviously, a company offering 10 years guarantee on their garages should be given special consideration. Plastic garages and metal garages can also serve this purpose well.

However, modern living has evolved the use of the garage from storing the car to a general storeroom and the car is left outside. Often, when converted into usable working space, these rooms can take on a different life.

I had a brick built garage in my garden which was not used and had become a dumping ground for all sorts. After great of thought, my wife and I decided we would like to make better use of our garage so we cleared out all the junk and I set about converting it into usable working space.

I decided this would need lining and did this by screwing 2″ x 2″ timbers onto the walls and then filled the gap with loft insulation. I then screwed onto the 2″ x 2″ timber some thin plywood. With the garage roof, I put insulation in the roof void and then also screwed plywood onto the underside of the garage ceiling. I intended to paint the plywood to make it look better but the paint just kept soaking into the wood.

In the end, I decided to wallpaper the walls with an embossed paper. I was then able to paint over the paper and got a great finish. The ceiling was painted but I needed 4 coats to get a decent finish. With the addition of coving and skirting boards I ended up with a great looking room which can be used all year round as the insulation helps to keep the garage warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Needless to say after all my hard work my wife requisitioned this new room for her and her craft making friends who meet every Wednesday. Still, this does leave the house for me on those nights.

This use of garages is backed up by Santander Mortgages who confirmed that over 1 million outdoor buildings, mainly garages, have been converted into viable living space, such as home studies, bedrooms, utility rooms and hobby rooms. Besides the everyday value which homeowners receive, they believe these garage conversion will increase the value of their homes.

The director of mortgages at Santander, Phil Cliff, explained that garages have lost their original purpose or housing cars. Homeowners have realised for a small investment these garages can be converted into extra and valuable space. Clearly, this is a case of homeowners realising they can save money instead of moving to a new, more expensive, property. The garage being turned into a garden home office is the popular change of use for these buildings.

How Qualified Are We To Offer Advice?

We, being a family business, have been involved in the manufacture of quality garden buildings for sale since 1979 when Robin started his first production unit. Craig, Robin’s son, joined in 1990 and trained at Guildford College in joinery. And for over 20 years we ran one of the largest UK shed companies in the south of England, and make very strong timber offices, and made the conscious decision to only deal with quality materials which we knew would last the test of time. This ethos probably comes from our upbringing. Robin’s father and grandfather were Master Butchers in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire and Quality and Customer Service was always the keyword behind their businesses.

When we decided to add concrete garages for sale to our portfolio we ensured our research found one of the best portable garages companies in the country – Lidget Garages.

Craig is a key member of the business and is helping 1st Choice to embrace the challenges of the 21st century. And with his two children, Daniel and Rebecca, the future looks very promising. So as you can see we are not just salespeople selling a range of products who know nothing of little about the products but have the history behind us to ensure that when you choose ‘1st Choice’ then you know your sectional garage or portable garage from Lidget actually will be ‘1st Choice.

Hi, I'm Robin Antill, founder of 1st Choice Leisure Buildings, and I use my expertise gained over 39 years in the garden buildings industry to understand that each customer is different. With my manufacturing, retailing and customer service experience my articles help people choose their ideal shed, garden workshop, summerhouse, log cabin or garden office needs to suit their requirement and that is key to satisfaction. And what do I do when I'm not writing? You may find me following Grimsby Town Football Club or riding roller coasters - so plenty of 'ups and downs' in my life.

Converting A Concrete Sectional Garage To A Usable Space

If your concrete garage is being underused as a useful space, i.e. Your car is stuck outside and the garage is full of all sort of stuff (or ‘items various’ as my wife would say) then maybe you need to consider changing the use and converting it to a usable room. Depending on the usage of your converted garage you may need building regulations approval but if it is not being made any larger then generally planning permission would not normally be required. In both instances, it is worth checking with your local authority to be sure.

You need to clear out the garage of all unneeded items and you will be surprised what you have in there which is totally worthless and pointless. When you have done this you will have a clear empty shell so you can plan how you wish to proceed. The easier thing to do is to use the garage as a glorified workshop and this is easier to achieve.

If you wish to use a precast garage for full-time habitation then it best to speak to an architect or builder experienced in this type of work. This way you can ensure the work will meet building regulations which you would need to obtain. If maybe if there is a shortage of parking in your neighbourhood then this might mean you might not get permission. Also, if you have a listed building then this might make a difference as well.

With the brick built garage, I had in my property I decided to utilise the space better so cleared out all the junk leaving me with a garage which was more or less empty. I got a builder in to remove the garage doors, which were old and tatty and replaced them with some nice UPVC double glazed double doors. I also had the personal door replaced with a modern UPVC window.

The roof void in my garage consisted of timber joists so I decided to fill the gap with two thickness of polystyrene. I use polystyrene as I cut this slightly oversize so when I squashed it into the gap it became self-supporting. When I had done this using plywood, cut to size, I screwed this into the garage ceiling. Prior to this, there were areas where I had to add some noggins where the joins were going to be.

The walls were treated similarly. I screwed into the wall some 50mm x 50mm pressure treated timbers at 16-inch spacing. (the 16-inch spacing meant that I had to only cut the plywood boards to the height of the garage) Again, I use polystyrene, but you could use fibreglass loft insulation which you can squash into place. Polystyrene was easier to use. After this, I lined the walls with thin plywood, which I screwed into place, but you could nail it. Reason for screws is that I could remove the panels to get behind with any electrical wires.

I was going to paint the plywood but found the plywood soaked up the paint and was rather patchy. I then decided to wallpaper the walls and then paint the wallpaper. Using an embossed wallpaper on the garage walls this gave me a uniform surface. I added coving to the ceiling and skirting boards and painted them. The ceiling took 4 coats of paint to get a reasonable finish but the wallpapered walls only need 2 coats to get a top-class finish.

In the end, I have a really clean highly functional modular room, which you could have as well if you have a concrete garage, which is easy to heat in the winter and does not get too hot in the summer. The only problem I got is that the wife has decided this room is highly suitable for her and her friends. Their hobby is craft and card making and this is what they do most Wednesday nights.
