Loft Conversion Southend 

One of the cost-friendly methods of adding additional space to your house is to get a loft conversion. Loft conversions have gained much popularity over the year and almost all houses can support one kind of loft conversion or the other. There are different styles and types of loft conversions and the cost of getting these loft conversions also varies. 

Advantages of Getting a Loft Conversion in Southend -

We at Loft conversion London offer the best Loft conversion services. You might be looking to move into a new place but here is why you should contact us and get a loft conversion done at your place.

  • Multiple Use Room -

A lofted room can be used for many different things and there is no limit on what you can do in the room. This lofted roof is mostly used as an additional bedroom but you can convert the room into anything you like. If you have a kid at home you can childproof the room and fill the room with toys and when these kids grow up you can convert this room into a gaming room. When they become even older you can convert this into a dedicated bedroom or change it into a movie room where your family can sit and watch movies. There are absolutely no limits on how you can use the room.

  • Energy Efficient -

These lofted rooms are on the roof so we help you by making provisions for natural light to enter the room. More than 80% of the room can be filled with natural light and this helps to avoid the use of any electronic devices for lighting. These windows can be a problem because they allow factors like heat and cold to escape through the window. We at Loft Conversion London work especially to insulate the room properly. Our services are efficient and reliable.

  • Easier than moving to a different home -

Moving to a new home might be the first thing that you think of when you feel like you need some extra space. Moving is a complicated process because you have to look for a proper house first and then you should also have basic healthcare and other amenities available around you and even if you have all the services available to you, the price might be too high, and shifting to a house might seem too expensive. The costs involved with transport are also very high. Rather than spending so much time and money on moving, it is better to get a loft conversion and use the extra space to fulfill your needs.

  • Increased Living Space -

Once you have a loft room you have the extra space that you need, this space can help you achieve that level of peace that you have always been looking for. Space can be used for anything you want and you can now have parties or invite relatives over without having to think about their accommodation and arranging a sleeping space for them. Having a lofted room opens up a whole new world of opportunities and if this space is used efficiently, then it is always worth the money.

What are the Different Types of Loft Conversions -

  • Dormer -

A dormer loft conversion is very simple and this type of loft conversion involves fitting a dorm-like room inside the roof and provisions are made for natural light to enter into the room. These dormer loft conversions are well suited to large houses and the advantage is that they help in creating a good amount of space and the costs involved are also not too much. This is why these are very commonly seen. Getting planning permissions are a must of constructing a Dormer Loft Conversion.

  • Mansard -

These Mansard loft conversions are very common and take considerably less time than some of the other available options. Most of the mansard loft conversions are made at the rear of the property and this is a complicated style of loft conversion because it requires the most work, mainly due to the amount of construction required. To construct this type of loft conversion there should be a flat roof and then adjustments are made to the walls so that they slope inwards at an angle of 72 degrees.

This whole process is very complicated but we have experienced workers who can carry out these conversions like it is a piece of cake

  • Hip-to-Gable -

This style is suggested to semi-detached properties because they have to extend sloping sides of the roof towards the outside, and the vertical gable can act as a replacement for the existing sloping roof that reaches the same height. Sometimes a double Hip-to-Gable loft conversion can be built in houses that have two sloping sides, rather than one.

This Hip-to-Gable type of loft conversion is one of the oldest forms of loft conversion but is very effective even in the present day. It is one of the most affordable styles of loft conversion and also helps to create enough headroom and space for living.

  • Velux -

Velux loft conversion is not seen very often but it is one of the special kinds of loft conversions because it takes the least amount of time. The whole process of converting the roof is finished within 4 weeks. The normal process of a loft conversion for any style takes more than 6-8 weeks. These Velux types of loft conversions are a little expensive but they are the easiest to build. There are no complex designs integrated into this type of conversion and most of the people who choose this style want a fast and simple loft converted while spending the least amount of money.
