Loft Conversion Tips and Suggestions

by Admin on June 29, 2013

Many of us aspire to having an extra room or two but, in reality, we don’t always have the spare land for an extension.

In times of rising property prices, more and more people are turning to loft conversions to solve the problem of extra living space.

  • Using a specialist builder is recommended
  • Ask to view examples of builders’ work
  • Make sure your conversion is a permitted development.
  • Make sure you understand as much detail as possible of the build (i.e. where sockets, lights will go) to avoid disappointment

Value for money Loft conversions are a significant investment and can cost from £20,000, but research shows that in the majority of cases they do add more value to the property than the initial outlay.

Building the shell of a loft conversion can take anything from four weeks to a few months to complete. If you’re worried about the weather, try to get the work done in the summer. Ensure you have alternative space for items currently stored in your loft. It’s easy to underestimate how much junk you’ve accumulated over the years because it’s conveniently tucked away in the loft.

Call in the professionals A project of this size needs reliable contractors, so seek out building firms who specialise in loft conversions.

Many people have difficulty in visualising what the end product will look like so view previous examples of a builder’s work.
