First, you must decide whether you are able to convert your loft. If you are considering this option, there are several things you must do to ensure that your project will be successful.
Space - The first thing you need to do is determine how much space you will lose beneath the stairs. If you don't have enough space, a spiral staircase is a popular solution.
Building regulations - Most homes come with an allowance for permitted development, which means you can do a conversion without getting planning permission. However, if you live in a conservation area or have a low roof space, your conversion may not be allowed
Loft Room - A conversion is possible if you have a room in the loft. It is possible to build a second-floor bedroom or a family room on top of the existing loft
Loft Height - The height of your loft is an important factor when planning a loft conversion. The floor of your loft should be 2.2m at the mid-point. If you have a low-roof space, your conversion might be more complicated.
Determine the type of roof - The conversion process is typically easier if your home has a low pitch, because steeper roof pitches allow for greater headroom and usable space.
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.
