In most family homes, the loft space is often an unnoticed and neglected storage space. It’s where old toys, DIY equipment and other long-forgotten items remain collecting dust, but it needn’t be this way. A loft conversion can create ample new space for all sorts of reasons, such as a games room for the kids, a home office or an additional bedroom; with a little outside help, it can transform your home.
There are four main types of loft conversion; roof light, dormer, hip-to-gable and mansard. The one you choose will essentially be dependent on the kind of house you own and its architecture. Other important considerations are the minimum headroom, insulation, and fire safety when embarking upon a loft conversion project. All three of these factors are regulated by the building codes. At Future Build, we have an in-depth working knowledge of the regulations we apply to every loft conversion design we undertake.
With most loft conversions planning permission isn’t necessary unless the conversion extends the roof beyond its existing summit or roof plane. As such, most loft conversions fall under permitted development rights, but if you do find yourself needing planning permission, we can assist you in dealing with the local authorities to achieve planning permission as smoothly as possible.
A loft conversion is a great way to increase the value of your home without having to move. When space is an issue, loft conversions are one of the most popular home improvements a family can undertake. Overall, it’s less expensive than moving and you can let your relationships blossom with friends/family whilst completely changing the space you have available. When working on the project, it is our priority to remove as much hassle from your loft conversion as possible. We keep noise and mess down to an absolute minimum at all times.
At Future Build, we are fully equipped for handling all manner of loft conversions. We can provide the architects, designers, and experience in working with local building inspectors if needed and high-quality tradespeople for an expert finish.
