Certain basic procedures are carried out when converting any type of loft space. These procedures create the base of Loft conversion work:
Using a loft for creative purposes will make the additional cost worth it. It can be used as a playroom, cinema hall for home, or bathroom as well. There are many design options available for a loft to be converted into a living space.
Many properties in the UK can go for a loft conversion. Often the changes that are required do not need any additional planning permission or otherwise as the working space is classified as “permitted for development”. Therefore, this is the best option to expand your home and the architect will ensure that space is being efficiently utilised and perfectly designed.
If you need additional living space, most of the families have to move houses. This can cost a lot of money. Moving houses within London can cost up to £100,000 which will include further costs like estate agent fees and stamp duty, and don't forget the adjusting team necessary for the whole process.
All this can be avoided and your money can be saved by extending your home with a Loft conversion. This is a better one-time financial investment and is a more viable approach. A usable loft will not only give you more living space but will also add around 20% more value to your house property.
The extra space that a loft provides can be used by you teenagers to have their own space, install a small workspace or make extra cash by renting out as an Airbnb.
In addition to all the lifestyle and financial benefits that a loft can provide you with, it is also very environmentally friendly. A usable loft helps create a better thermal environment for your homes; it makes the internal temperature more comfortable which drastically increases thermal efficiency.
The comfortable internal temperature of your house also reduces the carbon footprint.
A loft conversion will also help your building adhere to the new building regulation rules which many existing properties do not follow properly.
The permitted guidelines will have to be followed, but other than that usually no permission is required for a loft conversion. Most homeowners can convert the loft into the desired living space as it comes under “permitted resident area”.
There are certain exceptions to this rule when someone is dealing with listed buildings and properties in that designated area.
Does loft conversion add any value? What is the value that will be added to my property?
A full conversion of your loft will add at least 20% value to your property. For example, if you are converting your loft into a large master bedroom then that will add up to 15% value to your home, whereas if you are using that space along with an ensuite bathroom and bedroom combination then it will give you 5% more value i.e 20% additional value on the same property from a one-time investment.
A normal loft conversion costs around £35,000 to a maximum of £70,000 on average which includes the VAT as well as fees payments. This cost can vary depending on the size of the loft and the complexity of the loft conversion.
A loft conversion is a very different task to undertake when compared to normal building projects. Therefore, it is hard to give the whole process a set time frame. How long the completion of loft conversion will take depends on what kind of loft you have, the material used in the loft, type of staircase and plumbing, the number of rooms needed, windows that need to be added and a bunch of other factors.
Since there are so many multiple variables for converting a loft, there are only some predictions that can be made on its timely completion.
Most loft conversions will take around 8-10 weeks to complete.
A successful loft conversion project is an asset for any house. This task should be undertaken only by a specialist team like the ones at Loft conversion London. Any loft will add value and provide extra space. However, a poorly constructed loft will have the opposite effect on your space and in some cases even hamper the safety and compromise on the structural strength of your house so make sure you consult a specialist.
There are a lot of elements and variables that go into planning a loft conversion. It is advisable to do your research before undertaking this major project and talk to an architect. To make sure everything is done correctly hire a team of experts and have your quality loft in no time!
The most common loft conversions are done on these types of houses across London. These houses mostly have high ceilings and large rooms and a conversion works best when the design retains the natural character of the building.
If you live in an end of terraced or semi-detached house, your property is ideal for a loft conversion. There are two main types of loft conversion that are suitable for semi-detached and end of terrace homes: hip to gable loft conversions and dormer loft conversions.
Many properties in the UK were build in the 1920s or 1930s (pre-war period). Such houses are great for loft conversions, you can easily add either a dormer loft conversion, a hip to gable loft conversion or a Velux loft conversion. The type we build will depend on the structure of your home and roof we can guide you on the best approach.
If you happen to live in a conservation area, the local council may not permit you to have a rear dormer, but they might let you have a mansard or a combination of Velux roof windows and small dormers. Loft conversions in flats and Maisonettes are the ultimate way of gaining that precious extra space.
