Many garage conversions will need some roofing work. The scale of any roofing work undertaken on your garage conversion will rely upon the type and condition of the the pre-existing roof of the garage and on the scale of your needs, for example if you are planning on transforming a flat garage roof to a pitched one as part of the conversion. Carrying out a survey on the pre-existing garage will assist you to ascertain the extent of the work that needs to be done. If the existing garage roof requires maintenance, think about having the entire roof redone in a new style. Pitched tile roofs will typically match the aesthetics of the property, but a flat roof can be less expensive.
There are three major types of garage roofs: pitched, flat and the less common example where the garage is already a part of a two-storey structure and has a room above it. All three types have to meet building regulations as part of the garage conversion. The insulation regulation is different depending on the kind of roof, but a garage conversion must meet the insulation values for a habitable room. The other important component with garage conversions roofing is the ceiling height, which may alter as part of the conversion if the pre-existing floor has to be elevated to allow for extra insulation.
