Many garage conversions will need some roofing work. The scale of any roofing work carried out on your garage conversion will depend on the type and condition of the the pre-existing roof of the garage and on the scale of your specification, for example if you are planning on changing a flat garage roof to a pitched one as part of the conversion. Conducting a survey on the pre-existing garage will allow you to ascertain the extent of the work that needs to be done. If the pre-existing garage roof requires maintenance, give some thought to having the entire roof redone in a new style. Pitched tile roofs will typically match the looks of the property, but a flat roof can be less costly.
There are three primary styles 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 varieties must meet building regulations as part of the garage conversion. The insulation regulation varies depending on the sort of roof, but a garage conversion will have to meet the insulation values for a habitable room. The other important element with garage conversions roofing is the ceiling height, which may alter as part of the conversion if the existing floor must be lifted to accommodate extra insulation.
