Construction for Loft Conversion in arnos grove

The process of construction for loft conversion involves lowering the existing ceiling and building a new one. The height of the central head should not be lower than 2.4 metres. The new ceiling must be constructed using a plate for hanging floor joists. It is also vital to secure the roof so that it does not spread during construction. If you're a DIY-er, you can do the work yourself by filling the space between the rafters with 7cm slab foam insulation. To finish off the loft conversion in arnos grove, you should add another 3cm slab insulation to the inside of the rafters. This will provide you with a total of 10cm of insulation. Likewise, you need to add 15cm slab foam or 30cm mineral wool insulation to the roof.

To get the most accurate quote, it is important to consult an architect or a building surveyor. The architect or building surveyor will be able to create a design that meets your needs and meets any necessary regulations. The final cost of the conversion will depend on the amount of work needed to complete the project. The architect or building surveyor will also help you decide on the exact type of materials that you need for the loft conversion in arnos grove.

If the existing joists in the ceiling are not adequate to support the floor during the loft conversion, you'll need to build new ones. Your structural engineer will look at the separation distance between your existing joists and specify the grade and size of new stair joists. Your new JOISTS will span between load-bearing walls and be slightly raised above the ceiling plaster. The new timbers will be thicker than the original ones to bridge the gap. If you're converting an older loft, you may also need to use Rolled Steel Joists to distribute the load.
