Checking To See If Your Broxbourne Home Is Suitable For A Loft Conversion

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.
