From Junk Room to Play Room
For many of us, our garages often aren’t being used to keep the car in. For a variety of reasons, people have started to keep the car in the drive. Instead the garage is used as storage for clutter we haven’t gotten around to throwing out yet. Or as a place to stash things too inconvenient to keep in the house. How many of us are familiar with the yearly ritual of hauling the Christmas tree out of the garage, or excavating the bikes during summer? There’s a better way to use the space.
A growing family or a change in lifestyle (for example, working from home) can put a strain on existing living space as well. Lots of people are looking to convert their garage into a gym, a snug, a man/lady cave or even a film room.
A garage conversion is the perfect answer.
It’s easier than moving to get extra room and prevents the need to add an extension. A garage conversion can have similarly transformative effects, with much less hassle. It’s also an effective way of adding value to your home, so make sure to check with a local estate agent if this is your aim.
Having completed hundreds of garage conversions since 2009, we know a thing or two about them at Gain-A-Room. We’re one of Scotland’s leading companies in the field, with unrivalled expertise in transforming unused spaces into new rooms for your family to enjoy.
We cover Fife, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Perth, Dundee, West Lothian as well as Falkirk and Stirling plus much more.
Conservatory Roof Conversions
If You have had a conservatory, do you find there is a common problem?
1. It’s too hot in the summer.
2. It’s too cold in the winter.
We are expert conservatory converters and provide our services all around Scotland including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Fife. With the new internal and external conservatory roof system your room will stay hotter for longer and stay cooler in those warm summer days, rather than going to the extreme of a complete new build this revolutionary and unique way of creating a more affordable living space has been the answer for thousands of conservatory owners across Scotland and the UK.
By keeping your existing conservatory our company can transform it into a new look usable room by installing a revolutionary light weight-tile system approved by BBA (British Board of Agreement) this is a 3 stage insulation system comprising of a 38mm lightweight composite insulation system, combining 19 layers of reflective materials and insulated plasterboard giving your new room a u-value that meets current building regulations.
Our conservatory converters install new roof systems all over Scotland from Edinburgh and the Lothians to fife, Glasgow, Aberdeen and the borders.
Our professional conservatory conversion team can transform your conservatory into a new comfortable living space you can use all year around at a cost tailored for each client’s needs.
As we know conservatories are used for a limited time of the year in Scotland, this is mainly due to the good old Scottish weather being unpredictable. However with conservatory roof insulation services this can become a thing of the past. As conservatories are built with limited insulation, with a conservatory conversion you could use your conservatory all year around and keep the look of your existing conservatory.
Our conservatory roof insulation techniques use internal roof space with 19 layers of double sided foiled insulation which helps stop heat loss in those cold winter months because your roof space is now insulated and the u-value has increased also giving you and your family more living space you can use 365 days a year at a fraction of the cost, rather than building something new.
What about the warm summer months?
Our conservatory roof insulation’s also stop your conservatory from becoming overheated in the winter months. The reflective double foiled insulation can also deflect heat from your room maintaining too much heat in the summer months by reflecting the sun away from the roof of your conservatory keeping it at a more comfortable temperature for you and your family.
