Instead of building an addition, more and more individuals are choosing a loft conversion to provide extra living space. They are not moving away or outwards, but rather upwards at a fair cost and with a return on investment.
Is the prospect of relocating intimidating to you? Possibly removing your loved ones from their home, school, family, and friends. Are you working from home but can't seem to get away from the noisy, chaotic environment in which you're attempting to operate your business? These are just two of the numerous reasons why you should choose a loft conversion instead of relocating or enlarging your yard area with an addition.
A loft conversion may possibly add 20% to the selling price of your home; a conversion provides greater living space and adds value at a low cost.
Here are the different types of loft conversion you can choose from for your home in Tiptree. Each conversion is unique and suitable for some specific types of roofs and your budget.
A roof light conversion may be the ideal solution for you if you're on a restricted budget.
However, in order for a roof light conversion to function, you must already have a loft with a suitable area and height.
Roof light conversions simply add skylight windows, a solid base floor, and a stairway to an existing roof, with no changes to the pitch or contour of the roof. As a result, they may be less expensive yet inappropriate for particular houses.
Dormer conversions are suitable for the majority of houses with sloping roofs.
However, because further structural improvements are required, they might take time (and money) to execute. Dormers protrude from the slope and are often finished with flat roofs, allowing for enough head and floor space.
Hip-to-gable conversions provide greater internal space than dormer conversions but are more costly. A hip-to-gable project will extend the side roof's slope outwards to form a vertical gable wall. Because the majority of the work is done on the side of the roof, these sorts of loft conversions are only suited for detached or semi-detached properties.
Although mansard loft conversions provide the largest interior room, they are also the most costly style of loft conversion. A mansard conversion changes the angle of the whole roof slope, giving it an almost vertical appearance with only a slight pitch on top. Mansards may not necessarily appear as natural as other forms of loft conversions, but the space they produce may be a genuine eye-catcher.
How much budget you need to prepare your loft conversion will be determined by the type of conversion of your choice, the appearance you desire, and the difficulty of doing the job.
Roof light/Velux loft conversions are often the cheapest choice, costing between £15,000 and £20,000. Dormer conversions are more pricy, costing between £30,000 and £60,000 on average, whereas hip-to-gable conversions may cost between £40,000 and £65,000.
Mansard loft conversions are the most expensive, with prices ranging from £70,000 to £80,000 depending on the size, and structure of the house to be converted.
