Basement and Garage Conversions

A service that we provide regularly here at Manchester Builders is converting basements into amazing living spaces or storage spaces, and converting garages into whatever you would like! Basement and garage conversions are important to us, and we have converted many garages and basements since our existence, and we have also created many different types of room designs while doing so. This has helped us become one of the best companies in the Manchester, United Kingdom area to work with for your garage and basement needs. We can understand the vision and design ideas that you may have for your basement or garage and turn that dream into a reality for you!

We provide this service for our customers in Salford, Stretford, Pendlebury, Failsworth, Droylsden, Prestwich, Swinton, Eccles, Burnage, Trafford, Withington, Rusholme, Moston, Cheetham Hill and many others!  

What could you do with your basement or garage conversion in Manchester?

​In short, we can pretty much do whatever you would like for us to do! If you know what you would like the room to become, and have some idea about design ideas that you would like to see then we can do it for you! However, you do not even really need design ideas, since we have a professional team here but we also have a very creative team that will always jump at the chance to design a new room!

We have turned basements and garages into many different rooms along with our loft conversion jobs. We have made garages a wet room and rooms including hot tubs, saunas and steam rooms while we have also done the same with basements (with ventilation, of course!). We have also created guest bedrooms and even children’s bedrooms for many customers around the Manchester, United Kingdom area. We have created home theatres and cinemas in customer’s basements and even created a mini bar in a garage with furnishings included. The most important thing that you should note about these conversions is that despite what you convert these rooms into, the property value of your home can absolutely skyrocket! If you decide to turn your basement into a giant underground swimming pool, you are sitting on an extra hundred thousand in property value at least. So even if you don’t have any use for an extra bedroom or bathroom, you should always consider converting your garages and basements for the property value.

With Manchester Builders & Construction, you can trust that we provide lower costs for basement and garage conversions. In fact, basement and garage conversions are relatively cheaper options for usable home living space. We have completed many of these conversions as builders in Manchester, and we have managed to calculate an average cost for these conversions. The average basement conversion cost within the Manchester area is anywhere from £20,000 - £26,000. This is dependent on the size and the scope of the project itself. The average price of a basement conversion within the Manchester area is £23,000, and can be cheaper depending on what your specific project that you would like to be completed.

Basement conversions pricing in Manchester comes from a variety of factors, the main being the type of conversion that you would like to have completed. If you have basement space already available and you need builders in Manchester to convert the area, then it could cost anywhere from £800 - £1,300 per square metre for the conversion. On the average calculation per completed job, this average would be £1,050 per square metre. If you are looking to convert your basement via levelling and underpinning the basement itself, then the average price would be slightly higher. It could cost anywhere from £1,500 - £2,000 per square metre for the conversion. We personally conclude that the average price for this project would be £1,650 per square metre. Finally, if you are looking to construct and then convert the basement area, then you would be looking at anywhere from £2,000 - £3,000 per square metre, with the obvious average being £2,500 per metre in the Manchester area. We have the most effect builders Manchester offer, and we believe that we are also the cheapest.

If you would like to use cured oak or if you would like to use plastic, they will of course be different prices so it is difficult to give a set, standard pricing structure for you. However, one thing that we can guarantee is that Manchester Builders will be cheaper to work with than any other building company in the Manchester, England area, and if you receive a lower quote (which you probably won’t) we will lower our prices. But more importantly, you still receive the best service in the Manchester, England area with the best prices!

How long will a basement conversion take in Manchester?

A basement conversion in the Manchester area can depend on multiple factors for us at Manchester Builders & Construction. Our builders in Manchester are very skilled, and have completed many basement conversions within the area itself. This has allowed us to garner the sufficient skills and knowledge to complete these projects faster than most without compromising the project, and we have an average completion time for these projects. For the conversion of a basement which has already been constructed and underpinned, the average timescale of a basement conversion could take anywhere from 6 – 10 weeks, with the average time taking 8 weeks for the completion of a project. If you wish to convert your basement with a levelling and underpinning of the floor, then the average timescale of the basement conversion would take anywhere from 8 – 14 weeks, with the average project taking 10 weeks overall. Finally, if you need to construct and convert a basement, then the average timescale would be anywhere from 10 – 24 weeks, with the average taking 15 weeks in the Manchester area. These are all dependent on multiple factors, so I would recommend calling for an estimate.
