Our step by step process for Loft Conversion in Brent Cross
We try to keep the Loft Conversion process as simple as possible from conception to completion, always keeping you informed and involved in every step. Our process includes an initial survey and design followed by architectural drawings and structural calculations. Thereafter, we will quote based on the drawings. Once happy with our quote, our architects apply for planning permission and commence your building work and finally the completion of your new loft conversion. Our team is ready to discuss any aspect of the project in more detail at all times.
Whether your family is growing, renting out a room in your property, or simply want a new study or office, a loft conversion is an ideal solution to maximise space in your house. This is a cost-effective alternative to moving and will increase the value of your property when you decide to sell in the future. No matter the project size, we will build you a loft that reflects your style and meets your lifestyle’s needs.
The loft conversion process in Brent cross is quite simple. First, you need to acquire loft Planning Permission. This is a legal requirement that must be met for any type of development. A full set of plans should be submitted rather than an approximation. The Building Control officer will check the progress of the work on various stages. When the job is completed, they should issue a completion certificate.
The next step is to measure the space under the ridge of your roof to ensure it is large enough for a conversion. Generally, 2.3 metres of headroom is required for a useful room. There should be at least two metres of clearance above the stairs. In addition, the height of the ceiling must be at least seven feet. The final step in the process is to fit the windows and electrical wiring.
The process is quite complex. During the first week, the new loft space will be connected to the lower floor via a staircase. The second week, the first round of plumbing and electrical installation will take place. During the third week, the new space will be plastered and insulated. The fourth week is when the remaining plumbing and electrical wiring will be complete. The last part of the process involves the installation of bathroom fittings and lighting.
Once the plan is in place, the process will begin. The first step of the project is measuring the space under the ridge of the roof. In order to convert the loft conversion into a useful room, you should have 2.3 metres of headroom. The stairway should be at least two metres high and should be accessible with ease. This will allow you to get the necessary ventilation and lighting.
