There are many different types of loft conversions but only some of them are suitable for the type of houses in Mitcham. Our team of Loft Conversion Islington did their research and came up with the best types of loft conversions for you. They are -
As the name suggests, dormer loft conversion includes adding a dorm-like room into the roof and this creates a pretty and spacious space inside the house. Working on the exterior also becomes easier. The cost of getting a dormer loft conversion depends on the size of the room and the number of dorms you are planning to add. The advantage of this type of loft conversion is that it offers a lot of headroom and space.
Velux type of loft conversion is one of the fastest and most affordable loft conversion options available. A normal loft conversion project might take at least 7-8 weeks but this Velux type of loft conversion can be completed in 3-4 weeks. There are no major changes made to the roof and there are no extending walls or reinforcing the ceiling and the floor. This type of loft conversion is suited when you have a steady room with enough space already.
A mansard loft conversion might be expensive but it is totally worth the price you pay because there is a lot of headspace and room inside the house. This creates a lot of scope for the activities that can be done inside the room and you don't have to sacrifice anything. This mansard loft conversion takes time because it is complicated. In a mansard loft conversion, the sidewalls of the house are extended and the slope of the roof slides inwards. This creates a lot of space between the wall and the roof.
A hip to gable is also a complicated loft conversion idea as the walls on the sides are extended and to the center to create the extra space. The headroom in this style is plenty but space might be a little congested. Everyone must get the required planning permissions before getting a hip to gable loft conversion as it involves making changes to the walls and the ceiling.
Planning is the first step and is the most crucial step while getting a loft conversion without proper plans it is impossible to pull off a loft conversion perfectly. There are some agents who show you unreasonable plans and claim that they would fight it just as shown but these plans come to a halt midway and the whole conversion gets ruined. We at Loft Conversion London take the help of our expert planners and designers who can assess everything perfectly and they can undoubtedly offer the best plans that your house can pull off.
Construction is also one of the most crucial parts because if there are problems in the construction it can be a huge problem later.
We don't believe in increasing the cost of construction once the project starts and no matter how much the costs increase, we collect only the amount that we quoted in the beginning.

Planning permissions are essential to ensure the safety of the residents and also to make sure that the house doesn't pose a risk to the society. Sometimes adding additional floors or making changes to the house can cause the soil beneath the house to become loose and there might be a sinkhole formed beneath the house. This is why it is important to get the planning permissions before getting a loft conversion.
The local planning commission will assess the structure strength of the hue, the composition of the soil, and determine if the plants are suitable for the house. This process can take up way too much time and can sometimes halt the planning process. We at Loft Conversion London help in creating clear blueprints so that the plans are clear and the permissions are assigned immediately.
