This large recent job for a customer in Great Sutton involved a full garage renovation, the garage was very long and was to be reduced in size to make room for a larger garden.
After initial contact and discussions with Frank, who is our representative for the Wirral (and dear friend), it was decided that a large part of the front of the garage would be removed, a new Firestone rubber roof was to be fitted, as well as a new pair of steel side-hinged garage doors and a personel door on the side of the garage. Rigorous surveys were carried out alongside our builder to make sure everything went smoothly. We used our own electrician for all electrical jobs too (thanks Syd!).
The first step on the job was for our trusty builder Steve Hartle to remove the old garage roof, take the brickwork back to the desired length of the garage and create an opening for the new garage door. A skip was arranged on site for this work. The rear of the garage was also cleared to make easy access there too.
After this work was completed, our team at Pennine turned up to fit the new roof and doors to the newly altered garage. The fitting work was completed over two days. We first started work on the rubber coated Firestone roof. We take great care when fitting our roofs so that there are no problems such as drainage, puddling of water or leaks etc. Firestone rubber roofs are a very good, long lasting product, so it is important they are fitted properly.
We plan on doing a more detailed blog on our website to look at how we fit this roof system. The roof shown here drained from left to right (looking from front) and also from the front to back, so we installed the new guttering to the right side and rear where the water will run off. There is a small rim on the front and left side of the roof to prevent water running off there.
New uPVC fascias were fitted on all sides of the garage and we installed a new side hinged garage door and side personel door made by Select Garage Doors. Both doors are made out of steel, are highly secure and built to last. After finishing the job with various uPVC trims and sealants, we left the site tidy as we always do and now the customer can plan on what to do with all the space gained…
We think you’ll agree that this garage renovation is quite a transformation and shows what can be achieved to suit a customers requirements.
