Thinking of converting your loft? Anyone who has one will tell you that a loft conversion is well worth considering.
Converting Your Bromley, Greater London Loft
One of the biggest loft conversion cost factors is location.
Extensions normally increase the heat load requirement of the house and so the boiler has to be upgraded, but a loft conversion may require little extra capacity as the space will be well insulated and can improve the overall energy efficiency of the house. Adding a loft conversion that includes a bathroom and a double bedroom would typically add around 20% to the value of a three-bed, one-bathroom property. Converting your loft from a cold dark storage area to a desirable and habitable living space is, in fact, one the quickest and cheapest ways to add extra room and value to your home.
You Need Planning Permission In Bromley
You will need planning permission if you are altering the roof height or shape (which may be the case if you have to raise it for headroom) but Loft Conversions Bromley can advise you on this. Unless you live in a protected area, you probably won't need planning permission for your loft conversion if the total area of the additional space doesn't exceed 50 cubic metres and doesn't extend higher than the current highest point of the roof. Most loft conversions can be done under permitted development rights, which allow the improvement and extension of homes, under certain restrictions.
