If you haven't already had a proud neighbour show off their glorious loft conversion then you've probably seen them in the glossy magazines. Lofts are a fantastic way to expand your living space without breaking the bank because they are typically underused, yet easy to open up and light making them perfect for playrooms, bedrooms, and home offices. We can help you transform your house, adding significantly to its resale value, and saving you the hassle and cost of moving if your family or home space needs grow. We've even had clients who didn't need the space themselves but converted attics into en-suite guest rooms simply to increase the value and ease on reselling.
Fire, Insulation, and Structure
Premium Loft Conversions Nottingham are professionals which means that as well as superb craftsmanship you can be assured of total compliance with planning and safety regulations. Many loft conversions don't require planning permission since they fall under the parameters of Permitted Development but we can advise you and if permission is required we will ensure it is granted. Then there's the issue that most lofts weren't made to be habitable spaces so they will require some structural modification and better insulation if they're going to be nice and toasty not to mention keep the fuel bills down. Finally in the post Grenfell world there are ever more stringent fire regulations and since exits from lofts are often less than simple we ensure that fire limiting technologies and materials and employed to take that into account.
Sky's the Limit
Once you've decided to use that space under the roof then the sky is the limit in terms of what you can do. To help you we have a catalogue of previous conversions and architects plans of the kind of effects you can create in your own home. Dream big and create en suite guest rooms, a light and airy home office with adequate charge points for all your electronics, or even a personal gym in the attic.
Dormers, Velux, and Skylights
Key to a successful loft conversion is the lighting and with the space being directly under the roof it makes sense to open up to the skies to get the most of natural light. There are a number of ways of doing this with Velux windows being probably the most popular type of skylight. These come in a range of sizes and styles and transform your converted space. Where a bit of extra headroom is required you may want to think about dormer windows which stand up out of the roof itself and give that feeling of space as well as the ability to stand up straight in front of windows where there is a view.
Raising the Roof
In some cases there just isn't enough head space under the rafters for adults to move around and then there is no option but to raise the roof, at least for the conversion space. That does have planning and structural implications but we are well familiar with them so talk to us about raising your roof if you think it's stopping you from enjoying another room in your home.
