Many garage conversions will need some roofing work. The scale of any roofing work undertaken on your garage conversion will be based upon the type and condition of the roof already on the garage and on the scale of your requirements, for example if you are planning on altering a flat garage roof to a pitched one as part of the conversion. Conducting a survey on the existing garage will allow you to ascertain the scope of the work that needs to be done. If the existing garage roof requires maintenance, give some thought to having the entire roof redone in a new style. Pitched tile roofs will typically compliment the looks of your home, 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 styles have to meet building regulations as part of the garage conversion. The insulation regulation is different depending on the sort of roof, but a garage conversion will need to meet the insulation values for a habitable room. The other important factor with garage conversions roofing is the ceiling height, which may alter as part of the conversion if the pre-existing floor has to be raised to allow for extra insulation.
