Diy Loft Conversion Step V Step by Loft Conversions Crawley
If you need extra space in your home on a budget, a loft conversion is well worth considering. 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. Why not schedule your own loft conversion with Loft Conversions Crawley today.
Need Planning Permission For Loft Conversions Crawley To Complete The Job
Full planning permission will be needed if you wish to add dormers at the front elevation. 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.
Ideally the loft floor space should be sound insulated; preferably with a mineral fibre quilt laid between the joists – the heavier and denser the material the better. 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 Crawley 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. A mansard type roof will offer maximum conversion space because it projects the maximum available head height, thus giving a greater usable floor area. 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.
If you're carrying out loft conversion works yourself, you should arrange conversion insurance to cover the new works and the existing structure. You'll need to make a decision of whether a loft conversion is right for your home and the team at Loft Conversions Crawley will help you come to a sound conclusion.
