Thinking of a Loft Conversion?
A loft conversion can be a straightforward way of getting that extra bit of living space in your home and adding value to your home. Whether you need an extra bedroom, an ensuite bedroom, a playroom or an office utilising your attic space is a cost effective way of adding the additional space you need.
Depending on the size and structure of your loft you may be able to gain a few rooms and even an extra bathroom. Indeed many families have found that converting the loft space has meant that they can stay in their home without the expense of moving house to get the extra space they need.
Remember too that a loft conversion can also add considerable value to your property should you be looking to sell at a later date.
There are several different types of loft conversion.
Basic Loft Conversion
The most basic type of conversion it just to make the loft area into a room. This type of conversion involves the reinforcing the floor joists, adding a few velux windows and insulating the roof space. Additionally lighting, electrics and heating are installed and of course the staircase.
A Dormer Loft Extension
This type of extension is the same as the basic loft conversion. However, instead of installing velux windows the roof is opened up to include a dormer window. This will increase the head room and also the useable floor space in the room. Subsequently the dormer window will provide more options for the staircase installation. Costs for this type of extension will depend on whether there is just a single room or several rooms in the conversion.
Roof Structure Loft Extension
This is the largest type of loft conversion and so the most costly. It involves removing the existing roof, extending existing walls and rebuilding the roof. This will require planning permission from the local authority.
