As the cost of moving homes soars, many people are looking to loft conversions to create extra living space, maybe an extra bedroom or study? Converting the attic area can add a significant amount of floor space and our professionally designed and built loft conversions can substantially increase your property's value. We offer construction of a variety of lofts designed to suit your architecture and space. Not only that but we also offer 'Perfect Finish' a full internal refurbishment, which means when we complete a job all you need to do is walk into it.
When considering a loft conversion, you need to think about the type of the roof structure, the pitch angle and the available head height. It is important there is enough space to allow for an adequate-sized room and space for stairs, a safe exit and entrance.
Is your loft suitable to be converted?
If it is a low ceiling, less than 2.2 m height, then you should consider two solutions. Both can be expensive, so it's important to research the work before undertaking on your project. Raise the Roof: This would involve either removing some or all the roof; this can be an expensive activity and would require planning permission as well as covered scaffolding to protect from the weather.
Lower the Ceiling Below: If you have rooms below the loft that have 3 m or more of ceiling height then lowering the height of these rooms can be an option. To do this would require all the existing ceilings to be removed and a new plate bolting to the wall for the new floor to hang from. Also, a tie would need to be created between the roof structure and the dwarf wall, to prevent roof dispersion.
How much value does a Loft Conversion add?
According to recent statistics, a loft conversion can add up to 20% to the value of your property, which makes it a relatively affordable and sound investment, regardless of your property type. As well as adding value to the resale price of your property, if buy-to-let, you can expect to receive a couple of hundred pounds more in rent every month by adding an extra bedroom in the loft.
Providing you stick to your budget and don't go over-the-top with the decor, you could make a healthy profit from your loft conversion. Better still, a loft conversion adds much-needed space in an otherwise tight living area; if you don't need another bedroom, why not look at adding a playroom for your children, a snug for the kids, or a home office for you and your partner?
With more people than ever working on flexible contracts and, often, from home, a home office is an excellent asset and will not only benefit you short-term but also add considerable value to your property when it comes to selling. With a loft conversion, you could make thousands and, in the meantime, improve you and your family's lifestyle by creating more space for day-to-day living.
