Our step by step process for Loft Conversion in Covent Garden
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.
Is my property a non-habitable loft conversion in Covent-Garden? If yes, how can I make it habitable? If your property has a loft, you have several options to improve the space. You can lower the ceiling to create more space. However, you have to make sure that the height of the ceiling remains above 2.4m. You can also install a shower room. You should check the building regulations to see if the conversion will be approved.
You can get a certificate of non-habitability if your house meets certain criteria in Covent-Garden. For example, the loft needs to have headroom of 2.2m or more, and the mid-point of the loft should be 2.4m or higher. This is an important aspect of building code, but there is no minimum height requirement for rooms. A good way around this issue is to lower the ceiling of the room below the loft and create a new floor in the room above.
Before you start the process of loft conversion in Covent-Garden, you need to decide what you will do with the space. A non-habitable loft is a non-useful space. You could make use of it for storage, office space, or another purpose. It can increase the value of your property by up to 25%. Remember that if the loft isn't habitable, it's probably a good idea to sell it.
Once the loft is ready, the final stages will involve adding plumbing and electrical sockets. The cost per square meter of your conversion will vary depending on the type of loft you have, the amount of roof alterations, and the type of finishing. Plasterers are likely to be the most expensive part of the project, with their daily rates ranging from £250 to £500. In addition to plastering, builders are usually the most expensive part of a Covent-Garden loft conversion.
