Benefits of an above garage extension

loft conversion in Preston

When extending your home there are a wide range of options available, from double storey home extensions to side return extensions and loft conversions. However, for homes with an adjoining garage, an above garage extension can be highly effective. But what does this involve and what are the benefits of an above garage extension?

What are the biggest benefits of an above garage extension?

Choosing an above garage extension means adding a room to your home that sits above the existing garage space. There are a number of benefits and advantages to installing an above garage extension, and these include:

  • Increasing property value
  • Adding space and functionality
  • Creating a new private space
  • Cost effective

Above garage extensions can increase property value

The biggest benefit of choosing an above garage extension is that this can increase the value of your property. In the competitive housing market, adding usable and functional rooms to your home can dramatically increase the property value. This is especially true if you use your above garage extension as a new bedroom, increasing your home from a 3 bedroom property to a 4 bedroom property for example. An additional bedroom space can add the most return on your investment, should you want to sell your property in the future, and this also increases the appeal of your property for prospective buyers.

Above garage extensions can add space and functionality to your property

As well as increasing the value of your home, an above garage extension can also increase the space in your home and make your home more functional. You can use the new room you create for anything that will suit your requirements. Whether this is a new bedroom, a home office or gym, or an additional living space, an above garage extension is a versatile home extension option that can be a better option than selling and moving to a new property, especially in the current housing market. Using a home extension to make more space for your growing household or to meet your requirements can be highly effective. 

An above garage extension can be more cost effective than a ground floor extension

Finally, opting for an above garage extension can be much more cost effective than a ground floor home extension. This is because the existing garage structure provides a foundation and framework, which means that new foundations will not need to be dug out, significantly reducing both material and labour costs, as well as the time the new extension will take to create. Additionally, the construction process may be less disruptive to the daily routine of the household, as it involves less disturbance to the main living areas.
