Our step by step process for Loft Conversion in Highgate
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 in a loft conversion in highgate is to plan your project. Then, gather the necessary materials and contractors. Once you've decided on the design, the next step is to hire a building company. The first step of the conversion process is the construction of the walls, which should be finished with care. A building company will determine what type of insulation will be needed and how much soundproofing you need. A glazier will work with you to select the right windows and install them. The final step in the conversion process is to add electrical sockets, and an electrician will be necessary. A registered electrician will be able to provide a BS7671 test certificate to prove their work.
The cost of materials and supplies increases in metropolitan areas. The cost of materials is higher because of the higher salaries and rent costs. The distance from production plants and the cost of transporting materials is also higher. When planning a loft conversion, professional fees must be included. They will need to produce drawings for councils, building regulations officers, and building teams. These charges can add up to several hundred pounds.
The local authority in highgate is responsible for approving loft conversion. They must ensure the new loft doesn't cause a snub to neighbours and follows the local planning regulations. They charge a fee for this service, which can range from £1,000 to £2,000, depending on the size and complexity of the project. However, you should never pay more than what you can afford.
