Garage Brick Repairs & Conversions: All You Need to Know

At Halls Construction, we specialise in garage brick repairs and conversions including –

Vehicle Damage

Car garages within Perth homes are regularly damaged due to impact from vehicles.

The damage can range from small cracks or scratches, right through to comprehensive structural damage, and the severity will dictate the urgency at which garage brick repairs are required.

Crack Stitching is an application to repair low levels of damage, whereby we reinforce the walls by stitching stainless steel bars throughout the joints and then injecting cementitious grout.

High level structural damage will often require a full removal and rebuild whereby Halls Construction will work in conjunction with an engineer to ensure a high standard and compliance.

Damage caused by vehicles is typically covered by most home and contents insurance companies, and Halls Construction can liaise directly with your insurance provider to recommend the ideal solution.

Sagging and/or Cracked Garage Lintels

A lintel is the structural support that spans between the vertical supports to create the opening in a car garage.

Brick lintels can sag and/or become cracked over time due to poor workmanship or wear and tear.

The process to repair a garage lintel will vary depending on the severity of damage and materials used to construct the lintel.

Garage Conversions

Garage conversions have become increasingly popular over recent years in Perth. As property sizes become smaller and prices become higher, it makes sense to convert your garage. Some of the popular conversions include –

  • Bedroom
  • Games Room
  • Theatre Room
  • Man Cave
  • Storage Room
  • Wine Cellar
  • Creative Studio
  • Home Office
  • Home Gym

Approximately 90% of garages already have internal access, so a conversion can be as simple as lining and rendering the walls, or applying plasterboards, followed by pouring a floor and/or adding carpet.

In addition to garage conversions, we can also expand the length of your garage to accommodate for longer vehicles.

A garage conversion can increase the value of your property, along with providing an additional room or storage, opposed to the hassle and cost of purchasing a larger house.

Carport Conversions

Another popular recent trend in Perth is to convert your open carport into a garage.

The process typically involves the construction of 4 brick piers and infilled brick walls. Where possible, we can also create an entrance to the house.

A carport conversion will not only increase the value of your property, it will also provide extra security for your vehicles and storage items.
