Our step by step process for Loft Conversion in Friern Barnet
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.
If you want to extend your home to make more space for your family, you can consider converting your loft into an additional bedroom. A large bedroom with an ensuite bathroom can increase the value of your house by as much as 20%. Your house will also benefit from a stylish new extension if it has been professionally designed by an architect. Architecture for Friern barnet has a gallery of loft conversion from recent projects and can offer you a quote. Most homeowners can convert their loft without obtaining planning permission. There are exceptions to this, such as listed buildings or properties in designated areas.
Costs vary based on the type of loft conversion in friern barnet you choose. An architect can be more expensive than a design and build company, so it is best to shop around. A design and build company will quote based on the design you require. These prices will include the cost of planning, including any relevant fees. Party wall agreements are required if the conversion requires building work on the boundary.
While it is possible to save up to £10,000 if you take on a few jobs yourself, this process can prove to be a lot more costly than you think. Not only will you have to deal with a number of tradesmen, you will also need to hire a lead contractor. A lead contractor will manage the entire project and will coordinate deliveries and tradesmen on your behalf. Taking on as many jobs as possible will save you hundreds of pounds.
