Garage Conversions in Colchester, Clacton-on-Sea, Ipswich & the Neighbouring Areas
A recent study by the RAC revealed that almost half of the 10.6 million homeowners in Britain with a garage no longer use them to park their car in. Instead, garages frequently become a convenient place to store tools, gardening equipment, decorating materials, ladders, freezers and an array of other items. However, as an increasing number of property owners seek to optimise the space within their home rather than face the prospects of moving, garage conversions have seen a huge increase in popularity. As construction specialists with more than four decades of shared trade and industry experience, we transform these underused spaces into habitable areas through a quick and simple process.
Operating out of Clacton-on-Sea, we cover the surrounding Essex and Suffolk locations, from Colchester to Ipswich, and from Wivenhoe to Hadleigh.
Existing garages already have the rudimentary shell of a room, providing the ideal starting point for garage conversions. As long as the structure has strong and stable foundations, which we thoroughly inspect, we produce new rooms to any specification with an efficient, swift and cost-effective turnaround.
Popular choices for garage conversions include:
• Entertainment Rooms
• New Bedrooms
• Home Offices
• Home Gyms
• Dining Areas
• Play Rooms

As with any type of domestic construction project, it remains essential for homeowners to focus their attention on the preliminary tasks first. This ensures a clear understanding of the work ahead, not to mention defined goals and expectations for all parties involved. This includes knowing how you intend to use the room following the conversion as well as finding a new home for any machinery, tools, freezers or assorted junk currently stored in the garage. Following the setting of a budget and the timescale for work, our personnel then flesh out initial concepts and ideas into full designs and plans.
In most cases, garage conversions fall within the government’s classification of ‘permitted development’, so they do not require planning approval. This means JSC Plastics & Construction can begin work immediately without prior clearance from any local authorities. The only caveats include homes in areas with parking restrictions, houses in conservation areas and projects converting garages into a separate house.
Naturally, if your garage conversion requires planning permission, we handle the application on your behalf.
No matter the location, garage conversions must receive sign-off from a Building Control officer to ensure strict compliance with UK Building Regulations. This includes meticulous inspections of flooring, roofing, insulation, ventilation and electrical systems.
For the ultimate in aesthetics and performance, we fit uPVC windows on our garage conversions. We have a wide range of colours and finishes to choose from, so we have the ideal option for any taste and requirement.
