If you are considering carrying out a loft conversion, you need to know how much the whole project is going to cost. This article is going to cover some of the most important points to consider before deciding on a price. It will also cover things like planning permission, adding a shower room or bath, and budgeting.
The first thing to remember is that planning permission is not always required for loft conversions. You do need to get Building Regulations approval and a Party Wall Agreement with your neighbours to make your conversion a legal one. Building regulations require you to have a permanent staircase to reach the loft. Alternatives include a spiral staircase or fixed ladder. Good insulation is also a necessity to maintain a comfortable temperature during winter and cool air during summer. You must also adhere to fire regulations.
To get more information on the planning process and what you need to get to build a loft conversion contact our expert team for advice. It is essential to find out whether your plans have any restrictions and if permitted development rights are affected. If you don't own the whole property, however, you can usually carry out a loft conversion without applying for permission.
The cost of adding a bath or shower room to a three-bed semi-loft conversion will depend on the size of the new room. The roof of the loft will need to be opened up to allow work to take place.
The most common reason for a loft conversion in Ashtead is to add an ensuite bathroom to one or more bedrooms. To keep costs low, it is recommended to build the bathroom above an existing bathroom. The bathroom can then tap into the existing water and drainage system.
The cost of installing a bath or shower room on a three-bed semi-loft conversion is similar to adding an extra room to a two-bed home. It is a fairly straightforward process, although you should consider the benefits of the additional square footage before deciding to proceed with the project.
The most common loft conversions are done on these types of houses across London. These houses mostly have high ceilings and large rooms and a conversion works best when the design retains the natural character of the building.
If you live in an end of terraced or semi-detached house, your property is ideal for a loft conversion. There are two main types of loft conversion that are suitable for semi-detached and end of terrace homes: hip to gable loft conversions and dormer loft conversions.
Many properties in the UK were build in the 1920s or 1930s (pre-war period). Such houses are great for loft conversions, you can easily add either a dormer loft conversion, a hip to gable loft conversion or a Velux loft conversion. The type we build will depend on the structure of your home and roof we can guide you on the best approach.
If you happen to live in a conservation area, the local council may not permit you to have a rear dormer, but they might let you have a mansard or a combination of Velux roof windows and small dormers. Loft conversions in flats and Maisonettes are the ultimate way of gaining that precious extra space.
