Reasons to get a loft conversion

Whether you’re in Moulsecoomb or any of the surrounding areas, there are many reasons why you might want to convert your loft. Often, the first reason is to create enough space for everyone in the family. If you would like to increase your living space, you could use the new space as a game room or a hobby room. A home office is a viable option if you work from home as many people now do.

Yet another common reason for opting for a loft conversion is to improve the value of your house. With loft conversion, you have more to gain than with other means of creating space.

A loft conversion project can be completed in good time, compared to other methods that may take longer or require garden space.

How valuable is a loft conversion in Moulsecoomb? It’s been proven by numerous studies that a house will be deemed more valuable if a loft conversion has been done. A loft conversion can increase the value of a house by up to 20%, according to a study by the Nationwide Building Society.

That could mean a £20,000 increase in value for a property valued at £100,000. 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?

Definitely. Whether you want a new bedroom and bathroom or need space for a nursery, getting a loft conversion is definitely worth it. Before you know it, the loft conversion process will be complete and you can enjoy your new space. The end result is most certainly worth the mess that ensues as we work on your loft conversion.

Are homeowners in Moulsecoomb required to obtain Building Regulations approval for loft conversions? Depending on the nature of the building and the loft conversion to be done, you may need Building Regulations approval before carrying out a loft conversion in Moulsecoomb.

There are specific requirements that guide the kinds of alterations that can be made on homes that are at least two storeys high. Building regulations pertaining to loft conversions are required to ensure that stairs are safely designed to the next floor and safe fire escape is made possible. 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. Extensive activities such as installing stairs, boarding out the loft or lining the wall are likely to have the regulations apply. Not only do Clifton Hill & Montpelier Loft Conversions know the guidelines that apply to loft conversions in Moulsecoomb, but we understand them deeply. You can trust us to ensure that you get any approvals necessary to complete work on your property. How much do loft conversions go for in Moulsecoomb? There’s no fixed price for loft conversions, but you can expect to pay at least £20,000 on average. 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 Moulsecoomb as far as location is concerned because it’s not one of the more expensive options in the UK. In addition, Clifton Hill & Montpelier Loft Conversions offer some of the most competitive prices on the market.

What types of loft conversions can I get in Moulsecoomb?

There are indeed different kinds of loft conversions available, but the best one for you will be determined by a number of factors. The first factor to consider is how much you’re willing to spend. The second most important consideration is your house itself and how suitable it is for a loft conversion, including questions about the kind of roof you have and the amount of space available. 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; here, the existing roof space will be converted with roof lights added to the front and back to avoid increasing the volume of the roof. If you want the gable walls fitted with windows, we can do so as well. This is the least expensive loft conversion type available to you since there isn’t much to be altered. Dormer conversion; this involves increasing volume at the back, sides or front by adding dormer windows into the pitched roof plane.

We can keep the extension small by installing only one or two windows, depending on what you intend to use the room for. We can also utilise the full width of the roof to create a large enough space with full headroom. Hip-to-gable conversion; rooves that are slanted on all sides down to the eaves are called ‘hipped’ rooves and are ideal candidates for this kind of loft conversion. To create more usable space within a roof like this, we’ll opt for taking down one or more hips and replacing it with a gable wall.

We would then extend the roof over the gables, thereby creating more volume. Gable-to-gable conversion; here, the gable wall will be built while the roof will be rebuilt at the back, resulting in a nearly vertical position that’s as high as the ceiling. This type of loft conversion will result in a wall with windows. We’re likely to use this type of loft conversion if yours is a terrace house. It’s likely to result in a large enough area where there’s sufficient headroom. Mansard conversion; this type of loft conversion involves removing your roof entirely and replacing it with a new structure resembling a box. In essence, the loft conversion will be adding a storey to your building with four near vertical tile-hung walls. We’ll then place an almost flat roof on top. Will a loft conversion be possible for every kind of house? In most cases, a loft conversion can be done.

That being said, buildings with a certain kind of roof pitch and shape can be problematic for loft conversion. 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 would need to know the number of usable load bearing walls are available to support 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. Our team have experience with loft conversion for homes in Moulsecoomb with many different types of rooves, so we know how to handle a complicated roof.
