Essential considerations for your Loft Conversion

Loft stairs

The ideal scenario is for your stairs to start from an existing stairwell using a domer or some other extension if not enough headroom is found for the flight of stairs to land in the attic.

Loft insulation & ventilation

For better comfortable living, upgrade the insulation at rafter level that is usually done by inserting stiff insulation in the midst and below the rafters, by leaving a 50 mm void in between the existing roof’s underside of to increase ventilation.

Loft sound proofing

To tackle the problem of noise, consider the fabric of your roof – such as using a ceiling plasterboard for and for party walls), or apply glazing products that deaden the sound.

Plumbing & electrics

Always check the electrical appliances in your loft if central heating and electrical systems have enough power to supply to the new space as well as their distribution area that they are needed. Do the same with the plumbing.

Fire safety for Loft Conversions

Every building must have a safe means of escape in case of fire and the standard provision of escape windows on every floor. A new space at home from a conversion needs a protected stairway leading down to the main exit in case of emergency.

Loft Conversion Guide in Swiss Cottage?

A loft conversion in swiss cottage can be tricky, especially if it involves the addition of a third story. In a three-storey house, for example, the new walls must be able to support the new roof structure and be fully weather tight. The building regulations also require that the new walls meet certain fire safety standards. Once you know the rules, you can proceed to assessing the type of loft conversion you need.

A hipped roof can be converted by knocking down the hipped roof. In this case, the end wall is built up to form a standard pitched roof. Almost all loft conversions will involve at least one vertical external wall, which can be used to create standard window openings. If the side elevations are not completely obscured by the roof, then there is no need for planning permission.

If the conversion project in swiss cottage is not habitable, there is another reason: the owner is in a tenancy agreement. In this case, the neighbour may want to move out. If so, he will not be able to live in the property. In this case, a non habitable loft conversion must be removed. In addition, a building that is not habitable will be unable to be rented out to others.
