Is My Home Suitable For a Loft Conversion?
You’ll need to undergo an assessment to make sure that whichever part of your home you’ve decided to extend is right for a loft conversion. We consider many factors before we decide which include pitch angle, structure, head height and any obstacles such as chimneys or water tanks.
What Types of Loft Conversion Should I Choose?
It really rather depends on how much space you have available and the architecture of your home. We’ll take a long look at the structure of your chosen room and come up with something that works- giving you both value for money and an efficient structure that’s built to last.
The types of Loft Conversion Start2Finish can offer -
A Velux loft conversion will involve installing a window into an existing roof, into the pitch line - this is a fairly straightforward type of conversion. The benefits of a Velux loft conversion is the generous amount of light it allows in, we can also fit triple glazed windows and this will help to reduce noise pollution and keep the room warm and condensation free.
A Dormer loft conversion is a small extension on an already existing attic. They have pitched or flat roofs and will fit right in with the rest of your home. It can have windows and you can even have French windows fitted with a balcony if you want. However, keep in mind that your loft will need to be high enough to accommodate this, and you may need planning permission if you decide on a balcony.
Hip to Gable End
This is a loft conversion on the end of your roof. This is suitable for most semi-detached houses that come with hipped roofs. You may not have the correct kind of support for this kind of conversion and we’d probably need to take a look, in order to see whether this is suitable for the type of property you own.
As you’ll be changing the outside of your property it’s more than likely you’ll need planning permission, but we can go over this with you and help you decide what’s best.
