A loft conversion is a cost-effective way of adding living space to your property. This can even help increase the resale value of your home. Make the loft space habitable and you can automatically look forward to an increase in rentals.
Worry no more about the hassles of digging up the basement to add more living space to your home. Consider loft conversion to get that extra bedroom, living room, gym, study or storage space you always wanted.
Considering a loft conversion? Here is what you need to know.
Adding More Space
Your loft conversion team will inspect the shape of the roof, the layout of the loft and the roof windows to create a design that makes the most of the available space.
Add appropriate light fixtures, just the right amount of furniture and an elegant flooring to give your loft a cosy ambience.
A good loft conversion can add upwards of £50,000 to your home value.
Study the Roof Structure
The shape and structure of your roof are the deciding factors in the loft conversion. Your builder or architect will check the strength and usability of the load-bearing walls in the roof for supporting the new or additional construction.
A gable end roof works best for loft conversion. An intersecting pitched roof may require additional walls or columns while a hipped roof can prove difficult to convert if it does not have internal load bearing walls.
If the loft conversion has very little or no external impact, you won’t need planning permission. You will need to submit for council approval only if you are changing the existing structure of your roof or increasing its height.
Loft insulation creates an insulating barrier within your loft. It prevents cold air from getting into your home and minimises heat loss. This helps in keeping your home warm. The right loft insulation can help you save on utility bills in a big way.
Choosing insulation material of the right thickness and installing the insulation is a job for experts. Your home insulation should meet government guidelines and must be purchased only from certified companies.
