Modern houses have become quite popular and people are also looking for ways to make the most of every inch of the house, one popular way to use the extra space is to convert the attic or the roof into a loft. This process is called loft conversion and it is very popular and is followed in almost all countries. There are various styles and ways to convert a loft and there are also DIY loft conversion projects that you can take up.
If you are planning to properly convert a loft into a living space then we recommend you hire a professional like us so that we can help you with everything that is needed for a loft conversion.
A loft conversion is a process of converting the loft into inhabitable space. This conversion can be simple and the process mostly depends on the size of the loft. If the loft is small then you can go with a basic type of loft conversion. If the house is too big then there are better options for loft conversions but, you would have to extend the walls and make changes to the ceiling and the floor.
Once the loft conversion is done you will have additional space that can be used as an extra bedroom, a music studio, a library, etc.
The best part about a loft conversion is that it is an investment rather than being an expense. If you want to get some additional space you either move to a new place or you get a loft conversion. When you move to a different space you have to spend a lot of money on the transport of goods and there is also a lot of time invested in looking for space. But with a loft conversion, the expenses are pretty much the same and this lofted room can add 20-25% additional value to your house. This means that when you sell the house you not only get the money that you spend on teh loft conversion, but you also get 2-30% as profit.
A mansard loft conversion is positioned 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. A mansard loft is built with a flat roof and the back sloping inwards at an angle of 72 degrees, this is often categorized as a roof instead of a wall by local authorities. These mansard loft conversions are very common in Central London and can be seen mainly in older houses.
The main advantage of getting a Mansard loft conversion is that it offers a significant increase in space, and it has a pleasant design which gives a lot of scope for proper interior designing. We at Loft conversion London can help you with a Mansard Loft conversion and can also help in getting the required planning permissions.
Dormer loft conversions are some of the most common and most economic loft conversions. This style of loft conversions involves a dorm existing vertically from the plane of an existing sloping roof, typically at the rear of the property. There is a dorm-like space created inside the roof so they are called dormer loft conversion and these are very commonly seen because they offer a lot of space and headroom. These loft conversions are suitable for both small and big houses alike.
There are also ready-made dormer loft conversions available. These lofts are in a factory and are dismantled, once you purchase them they are then transported to your location and the roof is opened with a crane and the dorm is fitted into the house. This takes a lot less time but is expensive.
Owners of detached and semi-detached properties can make the best use of a Hip-to-Gable design. 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. Planning permissions are not required if you are planning to get a Hip-to-Gable style of the loft conversion but if you are making changes to the walls or the roof, these permissions have to be obtained.
If you don't have enough time to have people working on a loft conversion, you should choose to go with a Velux loft conversion. This style of loft conversion takes the least amount of time and 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.
Velux type of loft conversions take less time but the duration depends on the size of the room and the plans that you choose for the interior and exterior. This type of loft conversion involves making provisions for windows and then renovating the roof and the floor to make it strong enough and safe for living. A Velux type of loft conversion is only possible when you have enough headspace and room in the roof already.
We at Loft conversion London offer services to carry out all types of loft conversions and we even give you expert advice on which style to choose and what to do with the lofted space.

The main reason for getting a loft conversion is to have that extra space that you can use to do anything that you like. If you don't have enough free space and if the room is too small, then converting the loft is a complete waste. We at Loft conversion London make sure that all the measurements are right and give proper plans to make sure you have enough headspace and room once the conversion is done.
Most people ignore the fact that the walls on the roof are thin and this causes heat or cold air to easily enter the room. It is important to insulate the room properly and if not the room becomes inhabitable because of the too hot or too cold temperatures. At Loft Conversion London we make sure that the lofted rooms are insulated properly.
We at loft conversion London add a layer of safety by reinforcing the room and the flooring and follow procedures that exceed the basic safety norms. We make sure that the roof stays intact and the ceiling doesn't fall off even though there is a natural calamity.
If you have a bathroom or a washbasin in your lofted room, it is important to connect these drainage pipes to the main drainage outlet. Connecting these outlets improperly can cause clogging of the outlets and sometimes these pipes can get blocked and can even burst out. We at Loft conversion London take care of all the factors including drainage.
