Do you want to make additional room for your house in Burnham-on-Crouch? A loft conversion may be an excellent solution for adding a room and increasing the value of your home. There are a few things to think about before and during a loft conversion, whether you handle the work yourself or hire professionals.
The first thing to consider when considering a loft conversion is if your home is appropriate. Looking for comparable properties on your block for indicators of a loft is an easy method to check. If other houses have lofts, yours most certainly can as well. Of course, this is no guarantee, but it is a promising start.
The height of the roof to the foundations of the home are all factors that influence whether you can convert your loft. We would recommend hiring a builder, architect, or surveyor to come to your property and assess its suitability.
The height of your loft is a key factor in determining whether or not you can convert it. Measure the distance from the floor to the tallest point. It must be at least 2.2m in length to be suitable for a loft conversion.
Check to determine whether your roof has trusses or rafters. Rafters are roof supports that run along the edge of the roof and do not extend into the triangular space below. Trusses, on the other hand, pass through the loft area, leaving less unoccupied space. Simply glancing into your loft will reveal the difference.
Both styles of construction may be transformed into useable space, although trusses may be more expensive since additional supports must be built into the loft area.
A Velux loft conversion is the most cost-effective and simple type of loft conversion since it requires minimal structural adjustments. Velux loft conversion makes use of existing space by converting it into a useable room. You'll need to install roof windows, insulate the loft, and reinforce the floor, but you won't need to conduct any serious structural work.
It's also possible that you won't require planning approval; most properties have approved development, which loft conversions, particularly internal loft conversions, generally come within.
Dormer conversions are often more expensive than internal loft conversions, but they give more space and are more adaptable if numerous rooms are desired. Dormer conversions are offered in a variety of styles. Consult your builder or architect to determine which ones are appropriate for your land and the goals of your project.
Single dormers are the most cost effective and simple method to add more room to a loft. An asymmetrical look and greater room can be achieved by adding a second set of single dormers. They are preferred in regions where larger projects may not be authorized, such as conservation areas.
Because they provide height to one side of the loft, a full-width dormer creates a significantly larger room. While a loft would ordinarily slope and eventually become unusable, a full-width dormer raises the roof height to a flat level.
A side dormer is occasionally required for houses with hipped roofs (roofs with four sloping sides rather than simply two). If the loft access is beneath the hip, a side dormer may be necessary to generate enough space to build effective access into the attic area.
Properties with an extra structure to the back, for example, may benefit from an L-shaped dormer. They are especially common with Victorian-era residences that have been enlarged. If you truly want to maximize the space in your loft conversion, an L-shaped dormer is an ideal option. It essentially repeats the size of the lower floor, so you may wind up with two or three more rooms in your loft.
Instead of a side dormer on a home with a hip roof, you might replace the hip with a gable wall and extend the roof over the gable. This increases the headroom in the loft, making it suitable for conversion.
Mansard conversions are an alternative to Velux loft conversions and dormers. These are normally the most expensive, always need planning clearance, and will most likely take a long time to finish. They will, however, add a lot of extra room!
When considering how to convert a loft, consult with your architect or builder to determine the best solution for your structure. What is best for your home will be determined by your needs.
