Ensuring A Safe Working Enviroment For Loft Conversions Crawley To Work In
If you are altering the roof height or shape (which may be the case if you have to raise it for headroom), you will also need planning permission from your local council.
Your new floor needs soundproofing, and this is easily achieved by laying a mineral fibre quilt between the joists. Introducing timber studwork with mineral fibre insulation will allow Loft Conversions Crawley to achieve excellent insulation levels and it can be covered with sound-rated plasterboard.
Altering Roof Structures In Crawley
If your loft already has enough space then adding roof lights is a cheap way to convert it into a habitable space. Bear in mind that it's likely that structural elements will need to be altered to allow for circulation within the room and roof windows of your loft conversion.
Did you know that any new floor joists added as part of your loft conversion will need to offer at least 30 minutes worth of fire protection, which could mean replastering the ceilings in those first floor rooms below. Remember that it is often necessary to insulate party walls — both against heat loss and noise.
