The first step in completing a loft conversion in west hampstead is to obtain Building Regulations approval. While a vague estimate is fine, it is better to have full plans submitted. A Building Control officer will inspect the work during various stages, from securing the necessary permits to granting the loft conversion a completion certificate. Listed below are a few key points to consider during the construction process. Once you have obtained all the necessary permissions, you can begin the loft conversion.
The building regulations are a vital part of any loft conversion in west hampstead. The regulations are mostly about safety, but a growing number of buildings are subject to Part L. This relates to thermal efficiency and is also a major component of modern construction. You will need to obtain Building Regulations approval for electrical work, glazing, and roof coverings. Many electrical installations are self-certified by approved installers. The structural engineer can also provide guidance on any additional plans that you may have.
When it comes to planning and building regulations, three-storey houses are a special case. Having a second stairway and sprinkler system is essential for loft conversions. You will also need to work with a specialist to ensure that the design and construction is compliant with all regulations. If the structure of the building is unstable, you will need to pay a specialist to carry out the conversion. It is important to consult an architect and building surveyor before embarking on the project.
The most common loft conversions are done on these types of houses across London. These houses mostly have high ceilings and large rooms and a conversion works best when the design retains the natural character of the building.
If you live in an end of terraced or semi-detached house, your property is ideal for a loft conversion. There are two main types of loft conversion that are suitable for semi-detached and end of terrace homes: hip to gable loft conversions and dormer loft conversions.
Many properties in the UK were build in the 1920s or 1930s (pre-war period). Such houses are great for loft conversions, you can easily add either a dormer loft conversion, a hip to gable loft conversion or a Velux loft conversion. The type we build will depend on the structure of your home and roof we can guide you on the best approach.
If you happen to live in a conservation area, the local council may not permit you to have a rear dormer, but they might let you have a mansard or a combination of Velux roof windows and small dormers. Loft conversions in flats and Maisonettes are the ultimate way of gaining that precious extra space.
