Why Choose Loft Conversion for that extra space?

When we undertook our very first loft conversion in Edgware, we came across many cynics who claimed that building an extension was the best way to create additional space; but we always cited six benefits of loft conversion that are unrefutable so here they are:

1. Adds value to your house

Studies made by property experts showed that loft conversions are one of the prime ways to increase in your home investments. In fact, Housing Market Research discovered that the value of your house increased by as much as 20%.

2. No need to pay for the expensive cost of moving.

Say goodbye to the cost moving. no more expensive stamp duty, solicitor fees and property costs that continue to rise. It appears that the cost of moving to a new house gets higher every year.

3. Increases space of your property

With the well-planned space loft conversion, you will have an additional storage space below your stairs while it eliminates the strain of needing more storage to the rooms in your home as well.

4. Enhance lovely view from room

The window of your loft conversion will offer you a great a surprise when you gaze out and see the magnificent view of the sea or the Downs at a distance/ at a distance. You are able to survey your local area from an entirely new perspective.

5. Increase your source for natural light

Loft conversion windows as Velux and Dormers, let in much lighter than the other windows in your home. Houses and trees on the street outside no longer blocked the light going to your place.

6. Time and money saver with a loft conversion

No other home improvement provides the most savings for time and money than from loft conversion, the reason why is that much of the structure you need is already in place.

The Types of Loft conversions for Residents of Edgware

Four common styles are available and once we view your property, we can advise you on the best design to suit your home. This will be determined by a number of different criteria, from available space, to property size and your available budget.

Four main options are:

1. Loft Conversion: Dormer -This type of loft conversion uses a vertical wall placed at the sloping roof’s bottom. To provide more space in the loft’s extension, a flat roof is made to meet the vertical wall. The Flat Dormer is one of the most popular types of loft conversions and also one of the most cost effective. It also provides large amounts of internal space in comparison with most other style. Planning permission is often not needed.

2. Loft Conversion: from hip to gable – Purpose of this type is to expand a relatively tiny space through a hipped roof so that it changes the flat gable making the sloping or ‘hipped’ side of a roof. Planning permission may be needed. Extra space can be used as office or any other purpose. This type is suitable for detached, semi-detached, chalet and bungalow properties.

3. Loft Conversion: Mansard is usually constructed at the back part of your property, its flat roof and a back-wall slope inwards at 72 degrees. This type is more expensive loft since it involves significant change to the structure of the property as well as more construction work. These are particularly common in urban areas and in terraced housing. Windows are typically housed in dormers. Planning permission is often required.

4. Loft conversion: Velux Depending on the scale and amount of construction required, loft conversions can be done between 6-8 weeks. However, Velux loft conversions are the easiest to build and the project done within 4 weeks.

Velux is a window manufacturer and the most commonly used windows in Velux loft conversions. Another way to refer to this build is a type of roof light loft conversion. This design is comparatively easy to install, with only one of the existing rafters needed to be trimmed out per window. The existing roof structure remains intact and the windows then slot in at an angle to the roof, rather than vertically. Not only is the build time shorter on this style, but due to the minimal alterations, the costs are considerably lower. A Velux loft conversion works better where there is plenty of headroom available, or if gaining planning permission may prove problematic.
