Imagine an expanded property without spending a lot, that's what you'll get if you opt for a loft conversion in Shirley. A loft conversion utilizes the unused area in your attic and turns it into a livable space. Unlike expanding by using your garden space or driveway, a loft conversion is a much more convenient option to go to since the construction mainly happens at the top of your property where you can expect minimal disruption while the construction is ongoing. By getting a loft conversion in Shirley, you’ll also receive an increase in your property value. According to the Nationwide Building Society, a loft conversion can raise your house’s value by up to 25%. And since it won’t ask for a huge sum of money, you’ll clearly see a great return if you invest in this kind of home improvement.


Yes, you will! Only after your loft in Shirley has been converted will you realize the number of benefits you obtained. One of them is having a decrease in the usage of light and heating systems in your house. This is because the newly-installed skylight windows and insulators in the room will bring great favors to you, specifically natural lighting and warm temperature even on the coldest nights. Additionally, a loft conversion in Shirley will provide you with a nicer outside view thanks to the newly-placed huge windows.


If the reason why you want to get a loft conversion is because of the convenience and benefits it provides to a household, you should make yourself aware of the factors that need to be checked first before diving into the conclusion. To be able to determine if the property you own in Shirley is suitable for a loft conversion, examine first the area you want to convert. The roof height should be at least 2.2 meters in length so you'll be guaranteed a cozy loft. Take note of the roof structure you have and mention this to your loft conversion specialist because this will determine the work that needs to be done. Check the pitch angle of your roof also. It should be 40 degrees or greater so the floor area and headroom can be maximized efficiently. Finally, you should be able to check if the fixed obstacles in your house like chimneys, ventilation pipes, and more will not consume the floor space that's supposed to be for your new loft. Also, this factor should be taken into account when calculating space requirements because they may restrict accessibility later on down the line.


You may be asked to decide if you want to leave your property in Shirley for a while or not. However, you should know that it is not deemed necessary for you and your family to relocate while the loft conversion happens on your property. Since the home upgrade mainly occurs at the top of your house, our team can create convenient outdoor access to assure you that the construction will be done flawlessly and with minimal disruption. And because our team at Loft Conversion London already has years of experience in converting lofts around London, you will not be dissatisfied with how we will build your loft. However, if you find the construction work still bothersome and still prefer a peaceful completion of your day-to-day activities, you are free to leave your house for a while and just go back after the loft conversion is complete.
