Loft Conversion Islington

Loft conversion might seem like a complicated process but it is a simple technique to create some extra space in the attic. Almost all houses support a loft conversion and getting a loft conversion is highly suggested because it is affordable and helps to increase the property value with the passage of time. There can be an increase of 15-20% in property value annually and these numbers may go up even further because the value of land is going up rapidly.

If you are looking to get a loft conversion in Islington, you should contact us at Loft Conversion London and we can help you with almost everything. We offer quality services at affordable costs and we even offer flexible packages.

Before loft conversion, you will also need to consider:

  • The height and dimensions of the room
  • The project blueprints
  • The efficiency of the labor
  • The services you want to install
  • Lighting options
  • Factors like floor strength, fire escapes, ventilation, plumbing, electrics, etc.
  • The type of loft
  • Planning, regulations, and other parties

Types of Loft Conversions in Islington

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 -

  • Dormer Loft Conversion

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 Loft Conversion

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.

  • Mansard Loft Conversion

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.

  • Hip to Gable Loft Conversion

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.

How does Loft Conversion London Help you?

  • Planning

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

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.

Why are Planning permissions important in Islington?

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.

Ideas for Loft Conversion for your Islington home

  • Hobby Room

If you have a hobby like painting, drawing or singing you can follow your hobbies and practice them with utmost concentration once you have a hobby room. If you are a singer you can soundproof the room and practice singing, you can also compose your own music this way. You can also focus on other hobbies like drawing, gaming, and painting in the hobby room. There will be no distractions in this room so this allows you to get into the zone and you can explore yourself perfectly.

  • Indoor Gym

Fitness has also become a common practice for everybody and having to travel all the way to the gym is sometimes a tiring task. There is also a risk of getting infected with the coronavirus because everybody at the gym uses the same equipment and it is not possible to sanitize everything immediately. You can ensure your safety and also work out by converting your loft into an Indoor gym. You can also store all teh gym equipment and purchasing the equipment is a one-time expense and you can now save money as you don't have to pay monthly fees to go to the gym.

  • Home Office

Work from home has become the new normal and some companies said that they would be following the same work from home functions even after the pandemic is done. Working from home has certain benefits but this is an advantage only if you should also have a dedicated space where you can work without anybody interrupting you. We suggest you convert the lofted room into a home office as you can now set up a perfect work table with all the required equipment and work without anybody interrupting you. Having a dedicated home office can also help in better focus and easier concentration and thus can help in increasing the efficiency at work.

Building a loft conversion has a plethora of highly useful advantages that will increase the aesthetics and value of your house. It provides you with the ideal opportunity to turn a cluttered, unused room into a peaceful retreat that meets your family's needs. Book your loft conversion service with Loft Conversion London now!
