Tips and Tricks of Loft Conversions

  • Building upwards instead of outwards  -

Planning to renovate your house and adding extensions would require a lot of work and do not forget, an extension would require the permission of the council. Loft conversion makes the most out of the waste space with the utilization of it in the most effective as well as required space possible.

  • More Storage   -

Storage has always been a huge matter of concern. You might always run out of storage because things will keep adding up and your space will be filled because space is limited. Having an organized space for your stuff and future additions would be a benefit that you didn’t know you needed.

  • House Condition   -

Three important things are generally inspected when converting a loft. The Internal Height, Roof pitch and the Footprint -

  1. The Internal height is nothing but the headspace, which is crucial for the livability factor.
  2. The roof pitch is the proper angle that will provide roof conversion.
  3. The footprint is the basic measurement that is necessarily adhering to the internal rules.
  • Permissions  -

If you want to have a different addition that might exceed specified criteria as provided by the council, then you will have to submit a full planning application to ask for permission. Some properties don't have developmental rights so you should be sure to follow up with the council. On the contrary, you sometimes don't need permissions from the council to get your loft converted, it is always good to be on a safer side.

The building regulation mainly focuses on safety, the strength of the floor,  energy efficiency, plumbing, fire emergency escapes, and electricity connections.

  • Design   -

The design of your home and your loft will be the prime role player, as to what your loft would be converted in. We have various types of Loft Conversions that we do and hence we have to analyze your loft and then it will be given the appropriate transformation.

  • Budget   -

We will help you to make a budget according to your affordability. We always ensure that there is no hidden cost and everything is transparently advised to you. We always try to make your budget as low as possible. Majorly we try to ensure that you are not investing your money where it is not required.

How to increase daylight in your Loft Conversion?

  1. Skylights/ Rooflights -

Skylight frames are fitted in the ceiling by removing the tiles from that place. It has to be perfectly fitted with the pitch of your roof. The best part is that it does not require heavy construction and is also cost-effective. You don’t have to take permission to install this. The general rule states that window glazing should make up at least 20% of the loft area, that is if you are very keen on natural light.

  1. Dormer Windows -

This will help you gain more internal floor space. It is effective when the pitch of the roof is high.

By doing a Loft Conversion you are also making your house more energy-efficient. Let’s know-how?

We use either cold Roof Insulation or Warm Cool Insulation on your roofs which will help your house become energy-efficient. It will also make a way for good ventilation. It is very important to avoid the risk of condensation and maintain good air quality in your loft.

Types of Loft Conversions We Offer in Bracknell

 There are three types of loft conversions that we offer- Internal loft conversions, Dormer loft conversions, and loft conversions that require a Full Removal and Build.

Internal loft conversions are usually the cheapest and require minimum building intervention. However, dormer loft conversions are the most common type of loft conversions in the county because of the additional space they can provide, with relatively simple building works. Full removal and build loft conversions will give you the most flexibility, but they are the most complex and most expensive.

1. INTERNAL LOFT CONVERSIONS -

Roof Lights - These are the most cost-effective loft conversion as they involve converting the existing loft space. Very few alterations to the roof space are needed.

2. DORMER LOFT CONVERSIONS - 

  • Single Dormer -
  • Side-Dormer -
  • Hip-to-Gable -
  • Full-Width Dormer
  • L-Shape Dormer  

3. ROOF OFF LOFT CONVERSIONS REQUIRING REMOVAL AND REBUILD   -

Mansard conversions - This type of loft conversion involves one or both slopes of the roof being replaced with a new structure with very steep sloping sides (almost as steep as the walls). An almost flat roof is placed over the top. This design is used where the original roof had little or no headroom and creates sufficient volume for an additional floor. Mansard conversions normally require planning permission.

Pre-fabricated loft - Where vertical space inside a roof is limited, the existing roof structure can be replaced with a larger one. “Room in the roof” trusses can be craned in place to form the shell. The roof can then be constructed around them. But living without a roof for over a month is no fun! But a pre-fabricated unit can be watertight in a couple of days.
