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.
If you're thinking about converting your loft, the first step is to figure out where the new space will go. A typical loft is 2.2 metres high at mid-point. While the height of a room isn't a building regulation, it is a requirement for stairways and access. Depending on the height of your property, you may have to lower the ceiling in the room below in order to meet this requirement.
You should first check with your insurer about the changes you're making to your home. A loft conversion may increase the value of your home, which could affect your insurance premiums. Be sure to give your insurer a few weeks' notice before you start work. If you're confident in your skills, you can get specialist renovations insurance. It will cover the costs of materials, building work, and liability.
You should also check with the local planning department in dollis hill about the legalities involved. If you live in a terraced or semi-detached home, you will share walls with your neighbour. Therefore, a loft conversion in dollis hill requires a legal agreement between you and your neighbour. These agreements can be as simple as a party wall notice or as complex as a party wall award. While a party way surveyor may be helpful, it's still wise to seek professional advice from a reliable source. A good recommendation is recommended but you can also read online reviews and ask for examples of previous conversions.
