Loft Conversion Checklist Questions to Ask in Pinner

A good checklist of questions to ask during a loft conversion project will ensure that the whole process goes as smoothly as possible. These tips will help you avoid problems and ensure that the entire project is completed safely and correctly. The following questions are important to ask during a loft conversion:

1. How will you use the loft conversion space? What is the purpose of every rooms and the size? Whether it is a bedroom or an entertainment room or gym or office or playing areas the purpose of the room is essential.

2. What color schemes you want for each? As well as what kind of textures you want for your walls and floors?

3. Want to turn a loft into a large room? Or making few small rooms?  Will the resulting rooms be large enough to fit your ideas?

4. What materials and style for your new room? Rustic room, Modern room, Cool room or warm room

5. Will there be enough space for an additional staircase? Find a stairwell with a good design and the necessary height.

6. What kind of staircase should you use? It is very important about the kind of stairs choose. You can either choose a spiral staircase or a traditional, fixed ladder, but you need to consider the width of the stairs.

7. Where do you want to place the windows? There are also privacy concerns. Do any windows face your neighbors' windows or home and cause privacy issues? A good design will have plenty of windows.

8. Do you want to emphasize natural daylight or interior light? Lighting is another important factor in a loft conversion. The right lighting can make the difference between a warm, comfortable room and a dark, drafty one. A good design will have plenty of windows and lights to provide the most light and balance in your home.

9. Have you consider the type of loft conversion like Dormer, Velux, Hip to Gable, Mansard conversion.

10. Where do you want to place the power sockets and switches?  The electrical wiring is accessible and safe? If it is not, you may want to consider rerouting the wiring.

11. Any specific ideas for fixtures and fittings?

12. Consider the location of the stairs, slope of the roof and the size of the walking area. The slope of the roof determines the size of the walking area and stairs. These factors can affect the size of individual rooms and the overall layout of the loft.

13.  If you install a bathroom that requires water, please check whether there is enough pressure in your existing boiler to carry the hot water to the extra floor?

14. What type of furniture you will use?  You must also consider the type of furniture and other items in the loft.

15. Noise pollution is a huge issue in homes. Turning the loft room into a children’s play area can cause sound disturbances directly downstairs to the bedroom. Make sure your family will be comfortable with the noise levels.

16. How much headroom do you need? You should know how much headroom you need before you start the conversion process.

17. What is the size of the space? You must also consider the dimensions of the space. Are there chimneys and water tanks in the area? The type of roof that you want to convert depends on the type of house you have. You can convert a traditional roof with rafters if you have a flat roof.

18. What is the Size and style of the room? This will determine the style and design of the space. Depending on your preferences, the materials can be different or the same.

19. Whether you are considering converting your loft, or simply want to update your home, you need to get permission from your neighbors if you share a wall with them. The Party Wall Act 1996 makes this process easier than ever and protects your property.

You should also consider the time spent in discussing the plans with your neighbors. This will help you build a better relationship, warn them of your intentions and make sure they are on board with the project.

Step by Step Guide to Loft Conversion

Victorian and Edwardian Houses

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.

End of Terraced and Semi Detached Houses

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.

1920s and 1930s Houses

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.

Flats, Maisonettes and Conservation Areas

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.
