Most 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 the pre-existing roof of the garage and on the scale of your specification, for example if you intend 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 help you ascertain the magnitude of the work that needs to be done. If the pre-existing garage roof requires maintenance, give some thought to having the whole roof redone in a new style. Pitched tile roofs will typically complement 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 will 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 will need to meet the insulation values for a habitable room. The other important element with garage conversions roofing is the ceiling height, which might alter as part of the conversion if the pre-existing floor needs to be raised to allow for extra insulation.
