Our step by step process for Loft Conversion in Stratford
We try to keep the Loft Conversion process as simple as possible from conception to completion, always keeping you informed and involved in every step. Our process includes an initial survey and design followed by architectural drawings and structural calculations. Thereafter, we will quote based on the drawings. Once happy with our quote, our architects apply for planning permission and commence your building work and finally the completion of your new loft conversion. Our team is ready to discuss any aspect of the project in more detail at all times.
Whether your family is growing, renting out a room in your property, or simply want a new study or office, a loft conversion is an ideal solution to maximise space in your house. This is a cost-effective alternative to moving and will increase the value of your property when you decide to sell in the future. No matter the project size, we will build you a loft that reflects your style and meets your lifestyle’s needs.
Recent research has shown that by converting a loft space, your house value can increase by as much as 20%. In areas where average house prices are high, this increase can amount to a considerable sum.
A loft conversion is appealing as it makes use of ‘unused’ space to create an extra room, rather than eating into an outside area in the way of typical extensions. It often costs less per square metre to convert a loft rather than build a conventional extension, as much of the structure you need is already in place.
Most loft conversions can be carried out without planning permission as long as they don’t exceed a certain size (40 cubic metres for a terrace or 50 cubic metres for a detached house) or they have not been designed to protrude too much from the existing roof.
As well as creating the extra space and adding value, a loft conversion can even make your home more energy efficient. All that extra insulation can help bring down the cost of your utility bills.
Ask yourself the following questions before signing off on your loft conversion plans:
Certain features in our homes, such as garages or porches, have solid research behind them that tells us about the overall value they add to a site but determining whether or not less common features are worth the investment can be difficult. It can be simple for a homeowner to decide whether a renovation is worthwhile because personal respect for the project is involved. However, as a real estate investor or landlord, you must consider how much long-term value the project would add to your property and whether the cost is justified. Examine whether a loft conversion will save you money in the long run.
The average cost to convert a loft is £35,000, but that can climb upwards of £50,000 depending on the size, whether you're including a bathroom, and other finishing details such as access to the space and general quality of the build. You'll need to hire an architect to ensure that the design is structurally sound and functional. Renovation components will include all of the standard addition items, such as framing, drywall, flooring, etc., but you'll also need to consider the possibility of finishing, raising, or lowering the ceiling and adding a finished staircase to access the room.
Renovating a loft can quickly add up to a major expense for your latest investment, which may lead you to question whether it's worth it. According to statistics, if a loft conversion is done well - and especially if you are converting it into a bedroom or a bathroom - it could provide a 50% to 75% return on investment. Adding an ensuite bedroom and bathroom does cost about twice as much as simply enclosing the space into a room that could be used as a home office or storage space, but you are essentially adding a room count to your investment. Your two-bedroom, one-bath home can now be considered a three-bedroom, two-bath, adding a lot of value to its sale potential or rental desirability.
It is important to consult not only a licensed architect and contractor to create a functional space but also your local estate agent to determine whether the market demand is there. Keep in mind that loft conversions are usually, but not always, smaller spaces, so demand in urban settings will probably be higher since space is already at a premium. A loft conversion is likely only worth the investment if done appropriately, but ultimately, you will need to do market research to ensure your investment is worth the returns.
If you do decide that you can’t face a large building project, then it might make sense to look at upgrading to a bigger property. It may also be the best solution if your property isn’t suitable in any way or if you don’t expect to stay in the property for over a couple more years. If you won’t get to benefit from the extension for long, then it can be hard to justify the significant financial investment and the upheaval involved while the works are taking place.
Taking a step up the property ladder in order to gain the desired extra space, can be more than worth it, even if you are staying in the local area. We would be happy to provide you with a no-obligation valuation on your property and advise you what homes like yours have recently sold for.
