Loft extensions are starting to rapidly grow in popularity due to the wide-ranging benefits. A loft extension is often one of the more complicated improvements a homeowner can complete on their property, and therefore often benefits to consult with a conversion specialist. Fresh Fit Installations Ltd take all the hassle out planning and building your dream loft extension.
The popularity of the loft conversions relates directly to the benefits that are gained by the homeowner. One of the main reasons is that an often unusable room is transformed into space that is fully livable, which has the potential to increase the retail value of property by as much as 20%.
When consulting with a loft conversion specialist, you will likely find out that there are two main types of loft conversions, which relate to the dormer and roof window type conversion. A roof window conversion is the process of installing a specific type of roof window, which is effective at letting in a significant amount of light throughout the daytime. A roof window conversion is also highly aesthetically appealing when viewing the property from the outside. The dormer conversion relates to a more extensive project and includes installing the windows, increasing the space and headroom in the attic, and creating space for permanent staircase access.
Before starting the construction phase of a loft extension, a specialist must first inspects the available attic space to decide whether it is suitable for the type of work you require. It is important to determine that there is enough headroom and adequate space for the access stairs. The roof will also be given a detailed inspection to make sure it is in a sound and leak-free condition before any work can be undertaken.
If required, it will be necessary to apply for the right building and planning permits to make sure you have the consent of the local authorities to have this particular type of work completed on your property. Permits are often required where external construction takes place, such as a need to complete a roof extension, install roof windows, or to create necessary staircase access. If it is just minor internal conversion work, then this can often be completed without the need to consult with the local authorities.
