Loft conversions - Why convert?
Avoid the stress of moving
With on-going uncertainty in the property market, it can make sense to stay put rather than face the upheaval and expense of moving. Perhaps you have children settled in school, have friends close by and love the area that you live in but feel that you have outgrown your current home? That's when a conversion or extension makes perfect sense and whatever your requirements, we can help to transform your unused space into the room of your dreams.
The main benefit of a loft conversion is increased space and a well-planned conversion can unlock a significant amount of extra living space. Even the most modest sized loft will often provide enough space for a new bedroom and bathroom. Whether you are looking for a new master suite, a home office or even a room to let - a loft conversion is the most cost effective way to unlock the space you require.
Extra light and great views
Because of their height and positioning, Velux windows and dormers enjoy longer hours of daylight and let in a maximum amount of sunshine as opposed to other windows which are more likely to be blocked by houses, trees and other obstacles. You will also be amazed by the new views available to you from your new loft conversion.
Add value to your home
A loft conversion is one of the best investments you can make to your property and a good conversion can add around 21% to the value - sometimes more! The return on investment for a loft conversion is better than any other form of home improvement.
The different types of loft conversion
A Velux or skylight conversion is one of the simplest and most cost effective types of conversion available. It involves installing a window into the existing pitchline of your roof and usually works best when there is a lot of existing headroom available. Velux conversions do not usually require planning permission and as they require less construction than some of the other forms of loft conversion available, they are considerably less disruptive.
Dormer Conversion The most popular type of loft conversion in the UK is a simple flat roof dormer. A dormer conversion is an extension to your existing roof, which will allow for additional floor space and headroom. The dormer protrudes from the existing slope of the roof and usually has windows to let in light and improve the outside appearance. Dormers fit easily onto most types of house including terraced, semi-detached and detached and are a cost effective way to add extra space to your property.
