Our step by step process for Loft Conversion in Gunnersbury
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.
The first step of the loft conversion process in Gunnersbury is to assess the structure of the roof. The structural engineer will determine if the joists are strong enough to support the new floor and will specify the type, size, and grade of joists. The new rafters will be placed alongside existing rafters and span the distance between the load-bearing walls. These will be elevated slightly above the ceiling plaster. The new rafters will be made of thicker timbers, which will bridge the gap. If the existing joists are weak, you may have to install Rolled Steel & Metal joists to help distribute the load.
Once the loft conversion process is complete in Gunnersbury, the building control officer will inspect the project to ensure compliance with fire regulations. The conversion process typically takes six to eight weeks and requires a professional architect to complete. A professional architect will design the entire loft conversion, from the rafters to the lighting to the bathroom. If you choose a specialist loft company, the architectural team will work with you to determine the best course of action.
After the surveyor has inspected the property in Gunnersbury, the surveyor will prepare a quote and contract. The surveyor will also hand over your plans to architects. The architects will put your dreams onto paper. They will also advise on planning permission, as necessary. And once the plan is approved, the structural engineer will see it through the building regulations. They will ensure your loft conversion is safe and meets all the building codes.
