Considerations For Loft Conversion Design in Broxbourne

● Ceiling Height

● Issues with lighting
● Planning permission is required.
● Building regulations governing floor strength and fire escapes
A loft conversion is not suited for every property. Before you start planning your loft conversion project, we recommend conducting a quick survey to ensure the following:
Assessment of the roof structure for a loft conversion
Is the roof a trussed roof or a typical cut rafter and purlin roof?
Height: Does your loft have adequate height? A traditional roof's minimum height is 2.2 to 2.4 meters, while a modern trussed roof's minimum height is 2.4 to 2.6 meters.
Space — Is there enough space in the loft to make a usable room?
Services or chimneys do not need to be moved because they do not pass through the loft space.
Felt – Check to see if your roof has felt under the tiles or if it is completely weatherproof. If you don't have felt, you'll see the backs of the roof tiles and the battens that hold them in place. You will most likely see a black bituminous paper under the tiles and battens if you have felt. The majority of modern homes will have felt.
How will Loft Conversion London help you plan a successful project?
We devise all of our time and effort to completing the project in six to eight weeks. Our surveyor will visit your home and go through the procedures and answer all the questions with you. We'll also assist you in determining which form of loft conversion is better for the structure of your home and the most cost-effective.
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.
