Loft Conversions offer one of the most cost effective ways of creating Extra Room in your house. There are many different types of conversion, contact our team of experts for guidance on which is right for you...
Don't move out, move up!
Considerable value can be added to your home by way of a loft conversion, creating Extra Room from an area that is almost always never used to its full potential – clear out your clutter and open the loft space up to gain an extra bedroom, bathroom or both. A loft conversion is ideal for those with growing families and allows you to gain extra space without increasing the footprint of the property – there’s no need to eat into your valuable garden space.
According to information from HSBC’s recent home improvement survey, a converted loft space can add an average of £16,152 to the value of a property. Boosting space and adding market value need not cost the earth with conversions offering the cheapest means of home expansion – this is achieved by utilising the existing structure of the property providing a quick solution to those seeking additional accommodation for their expanding families.
Loft conversions will usually fall within permitted development rights so the need to seek planning permission will be unlikely however other restrictions may apply.
Expert Tip - Local Research
"Confirm whether your house is within a conservation area as this can limit the scope for increasing the loft space using a dormer - this obstacle need not rule out a loft conversion but it may add to the complexity of the project"
