Loft Conversions in South Earlswood

Before starting a loft conversion project, it is necessary to obtain Building Regulations approval and a Party Wall Agreement from your neighbours. In addition, you will need to adhere to building regulations, including having a permanent staircase and good insulation. This will ensure that the loft stays warm during the winter and cool during the summer. The building materials used in loft conversions should also meet all fire regulations.

Fire doors

If you are considering loft conversions in South Earlswood, it's important to consider fire doors. These doors are required by the Building Regulations, which require loft staircases to be fire resistant and lead to the front door. You will also need to ensure the walls are fire resistant. Choosing the right door type can be difficult, but fire doors provide an additional layer of safety to your home.

Insulated walls

Insulated walls are an essential part of any loft conversion, especially if you are planning to add additional rooms to your home. They can increase the value of your home and make it more comfortable. The best way to achieve this is to install proper insulation between the roof of the loft and the new ceiling. This method is also the cheapest and easiest to install. This way, you can enjoy a loft that is as warm as other rooms in the house.

Rooflights

The first step in planning a loft conversion is to decide what type of windows and skylights you will use. This will depend on a few factors, including the style of the house, the roof height, whether you are planning a conversion in a conservation area, and your budget. You may also want to check the safety limits for glass.

I-beams

When converting loft space, you need to make sure that you use the safest materials available. This means that you need to follow the building regulations and adhere to all fire safety regulations. You should also ensure that you install new walls that support the existing roof structure and meet any building regulations that apply to the conversion.

RSJs

RSJs are a type of steel girder. They can be used to replace a load-bearing wall. They are designed to withstand bending loads in the vertical plane. They can be used for a variety of purposes, from door lintels to building framework.

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.
