A loft conversion may be something you have been thinking about for some time, or just recently felt the need to maximise the space you have in your property. Loft conversions can be a great addition to your house and are a good way to increase your properties value.
Loft conversions are a relatively straightforward type of construction, however as with all renovations there is some planning and considerations involved. Here we have outlined five things that you will need to address:
1. What will it cost?
Loft conversions can vary significantly in price and you will need to make sure that you understand what the total cost will be for all the work before you begin. The type of stairs, windows and plumbing for bathrooms can all affect the price significantly.
For fire safety, you will need to ensure that an escape window is built within your plans.
You will need to know if the central heating system that you have in place at the moment will be able to deal with the additional usage if you are planning on adding a bathroom in to your loft conversion.
You will need an entry point in to your loft conversion and sometimes an additional staircase may need to take some space from one of the existing rooms on the level below.
Before you begin any work you will need to check if planning permission is required for your loft conversion.
For advice about loft conversions, get in touch with a specialist in your area such as Harrogate Loft Conversions.
Harrogate is one of the most popular places to live in the UK and for good reason. It is beautiful, affluent and is at the heart of the countryside with the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors on its doorstep.
This makes it no surprise that property in Harrogate is expensive and people struggle to afford to buy property there, even if they already live there and want to scale up! Because of this Harrogate loft conversions are on the rise as people look to maintain their excellent living location whilst gaining more space for expanding families and more comfort.
A loft conversion is a great option in these instances. If you live in a great location but feel like you could do with some more space, a loft conversion can open up at least a couple more rooms depending on the size of the house which will allow you to spread out. This way you get more space and keep your great location and established home – the best of both worlds! It’s no surprise more and more people are choosing this option.
