Knowing that a loft conversion is a type of home expansion, you must be aware of the most obvious reason why you should get a loft conversion, and that is the additional room that you’ll get to repurpose by yourself. You can transform a previously unused area in your house and turn it into a room that you and your family need. Have an extra bedroom that can be the lodging of unexpected house guests. Create a dedicated closet for all your clothes and shoes if you’re a collector yourself. Or design a mini library where you can put all your novels and stories. You won’t need to worry about using a space in your garden or driveway as with a loft conversion, the extension happens upwards.


With a loft conversion, the value of your property will increase. According to the Nationwide Building Society, a loft conversion can boost your house’s current value by up to 25%. That’s why this type of home upgrade is deemed a worthwhile investment since after spending a lot for this project, the cost you shouldered will eventually return to you. Moreover, a loft conversion will also let you save on electricity. Thanks to the dormer windows and insulators that will be installed in the room, you have the chance of enjoying natural lighting and decreased usage of heating systems.


Opting for a loft conversion cannot be decided on the mere fact that you want it, you must also check the area you want to convert if it’s suitable for the change. You need to consider the available walking area within your loft. Yes, it may be a large space at first look but is the actual area big enough to allow people to comfortably walk around? To successfully own a functional loft where you and your family can be completely cozy, you need to measure the standard head height in the room which is at least 2.2 meters of vertical space. Failing to get this measurement may complicate the construction work if you still want to pursue the loft conversion.


Contemplating what type of loft conversion should you get for your property in Plumstead will depend on three key factors which are the type of roof your house has, the room’s main purpose, and your budget. An internal loft conversion is the type of loft that our team at Loft Conversion London can carry out for smaller spaces since we can retain the existing floor space and will only be adding roof lights or Velux windows. This is the most uncomplicated type as well as the cheapest where when finished can provide you with an extra bedroom or an efficient home office. A dormer loft is highly popular with households that have sloped roofs. This is because the construction involves utilizing the slope of the roof—which has a good pitch angle—vertically. Getting a mansard loft conversion can solve your worries about low head height at the eaves or a lack of space. This type of loft conversion will create a massive transformation on the available room which in the end will have you enjoying a space huge enough that you can compare it already as a new storey.


A simple loft conversion which is an internal loft can be completed in as short as 4 weeks since the construction involved is straightforward and uncomplicated. The longest duration that a loft conversion can take to be finished is 10 weeks or more, and that is opting for a mansard loft. This is because the building plan for this type requires dramatic adjustments to the area you want to convert which is not easy to accomplish.
