Diy Loft Conversion Step V Step by Loft Conversions Bolton
Tackling a loft conversion project can be one of the most straightforward ways to add valuable new living space to your home. If you do need a purpose-built loft conversion staircase, it pays to have the design approved by your building control officer before you actually commission them. Loft Conversions Bolton think there are key things you need to consider when weighing up whether a loft conversion is the right way to add more space to your property.
Need Planning Permission For Loft Conversions Bolton To Complete The Job
You'll need to assess your current loft space potential, secure planning permission and other consents, spend time getting the design right and appoint the best partners for your project. When it comes to starting the conversion process, it's always worth being proactive so get in contact with your local council or planning officer to find out if you require planning permission.
Sound insulation is often neglected in the design of a loft conversion, but something you should certainly factor into your thinking. During a loft conversion, insulation made from Rockwool fibre or similar is usually placed between floor joists, mainly for its sound-reduction properties.
Small Roof Space Bolton Conversions
Depending on the roof structure / planning constraints, your option may be limited when it comes to loft conversion but speak to our team today to find the right solution for your home. Traditional frame type roof structures are often the most suitable type for loft conversions, allowing the space to be opened up relatively easily and inexpensively. The higher the angle of the roof pitch, the higher the central head height is likely to be, and if dormers are used or the roof is redesigned, the floor area, and potential for comfortable headroom, can be increased.
For ease you can ask your joiner or builder to send building control a copy of the design. You'll need to make a decision of whether a loft conversion is right for your home and the team at Loft Conversions Bolton will help you come to a sound conclusion.
