WHAT MAINTENANCE DOES A LOFT CONVERSION REQUIRE?

A loft conversion in Kew requires minimal maintenance. Regular inspection of the roof should be done to check for any signs of wear and tear, particularly around flashings, skylights, and chimneys. It's also essential to check for any water damage or insect infestation that could affect the structural integrity. Additionally, if you have installed any insulation, it is essential to check that it is still in good condition. If necessary, the insulation should be replaced or repaired as needed. Finally, ensure to keep gutters and downpipes clean and free of debris so they don't become blocked.

HOW TO REDUCE COSTS?

To reduce the costs of a loft conversion in Kew, it is essential to consider how much space you need and the type of materials that will be used. Consider using lighter materials for parts of the construction where possible, such as for ceilings or internal walls. Reusing existing furniture or fixtures may also help to reduce overall costs.
