In many cases, people want to expand their homes to ensure that every member of the family is accommodated. A loft conversion is also ideal for a nice little hideaway to enjoy a hobby or a game room if you’re looking to add to your living space. A home office is a viable option if you work from home as many people now do.

Loft conversions improve the value of the home, so a lot of people are doing them for this reason. Loft conversion is easily the most beneficial of all the means of improving the amount of usable space in a home.

How much value does a loft conversion add to a home in Aldrington? Many surveys cite a loft conversion as the most ideal way to improve the value of your home. For instance, a Nationwide Building Society study indicates that the value of a house can go up by as much as 20% with the addition of a loft conversion.

If a house is worth £300,000, that would mean the value will go up to £360,000. If the hassle and money you have to spend isn’t a problem, then converting your loft is a great way to expand the space in your home while increasing its value.

Would I be happy with a loft conversion in the long run?

You certainly are. En suite bathroom, nursery, or anything else you have in mind, a loft conversion is a great way to achieve your dreams for a house that’ll keep you happy for a long time to come. Before long, you’ll have your dream house as you imagined it to be. The end result is most certainly worth the mess that ensues as we work on your loft conversion.

World my loft conversion project be subject to Building Regulations approval in Aldrington? Not every loft conversion project in Aldrington will require Building Regulations approval, but some will if the nature of the work demands it.

Your home will be subject to certain guidelines if there’s more than one floor. These requirements exist to ensure the safety of all residents of the property, especially as regards the safety of the fire escape and stairs. Other major concerns include how stable the structure and roof are, how structurally sound the new floor is and how good the sound insulation between the loft conversion and the floors below is.

As the extent of work differs, the Building Regulations that apply also vary. If you would like to line the wall, board out the loft or install a stair to it, the regulations will most likely apply because of the extensive nature of the work. At Clifton Hill & Montpelier Loft Conversions, we are accustomed to working within the national and local guidelines that apply in Aldrington. When you work with us, you wouldn’t have to worry about getting the necessary approvals done. What’s the cost of a loft conversion in Aldrington? The cost of a loft conversion varies widely, starting from about £20,000. What you eventually pay will be determined by factors such as your location, the size of the extension and the number of dormers. You don’t have a problem in Aldrington as far as location is concerned because it’s not one of the more expensive options in the UK. Plus, Clifton Hill & Montpelier Loft Conversions offer fantastic prices for loft conversions.

What types of loft conversions can I get in Aldrington?

The type of loft conversion used for your project will be determined by a number of different factors. First, we’ll have to consider how much you plan on spending. The type of roof on your building and the amount of room you have are also important to consider. Planning permission is also another important point to consider.

Depending on what you decide, we could opt for any of these loft conversion types:

Rooflight conversion; our team will have roof lights added to the front and back to create your new space using the existing capacity you have and no more. We can also add windows so the gable walls if you like. Given the minimal alterations to be made, you won’t have to spend too much. Dormer conversion; our team will be looking to increase the amount of space at the sides, front or back by fitting the pitched roof plane with dormer windows.

If only a small extension is needed due to your intention for the room, we may need to fit only one or two windows. On the other hand, if you need something bigger, we can build a room with full headroom spanning the entire width of the roof. Hip-to-gable conversion; this type of loft conversion applies to ‘hipped’ rooves, which slope downwards on all four sides. A gable wall can be used to replace one or more hips in order to create more space within a hipped roof.

To complete the job, we’ll extend the roof over the gables to ensure enough space is created. Gable-to-gable conversion; our team will rebuild the roof at the back after building the gable wall, with the end result of raising the pitch to make it slightly vertical and high as the ceiling. A wall with windows will be formed in the end. This loft conversion method is ideal for terrace houses. It can produce a large area with full headroom. Mansard conversion; if you opt for this kind of loft conversion, we’ll have to do major work by taking down your roof and putting an entirely new structure in place. In essence, the loft conversion will be adding a storey to your building with four near vertical tile-hung walls. Instead of your old roof, you’ll then have a nearly flat roof. Will a loft conversion be possible for every kind of house? There’s a good chance your home wouldn’t have a problem with a loft conversion.

However, there are houses where the shape and pitch of the existing roof can be a hindrance. Get in touch with us right now about coming to see your house to help you determine whether a loft conversion can be done. We’ll need to establish that the usable load bearing walls available are sufficient to provide solid support for the new structure. If your roof has a gable end wall, a loft conversion shouldn’t be a problem. However, it’ll be a different story if you have an intersecting pitched roof, a hipped roof or a trussed rafter roof as those are more complex to work with. Having worked on different kinds of rooves across Aldrington, we can guarantee that we’ll be able to handle your loft conversion even if you have a complicated roof to work with.
