Converting Your Bolton, Greater Manchester Loft
When you convert a loft that already has an acceptable headroom, the height of the finished conversion will not be higher than the original roof.
You can use your loft conversion for a variety of purposes and they are extremely versatile as an extra bedroom and bathroom, as a lounge or additional living area, as an office or even a gym or home cinema. Adding a loft conversion that includes a bathroom and a double bedroom would typically add around 20% to the value of a three-bed, one-bathroom property. Converting your loft is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to boost the square footage of your home in Bolton.
You Need Planning Permission In Bolton
For more complex loft conversions, you will almost certainly need planning permission and a customised price but Loft Conversions Bolton can advise you further on this. Unless you live in a protected area, you probably won't need planning permission for your loft conversion if the total area of the additional space doesn't exceed 50 cubic metres and doesn't extend higher than the current highest point of the roof. Under regulations that came into effect from 1 October 2008 a loft conversion or small dormer extension is considered a permitted development, and generally does not require planning permission.
Once you have chosen a builder or loft conversion company like Loft Conversions Bolton, make sure you get your quote and, most importantly, what is included, in writing, so you won't get a nasty surprise. If your loft doesn't have enough headroom for the conversion then the roof will need to be raised or the floor below lowered.
