Diy Loft Conversion Step V Step by Loft Conversions Bromley
Tackling a loft conversion project can be one of the most straightforward ways to add valuable new living space to your home. An easy way to get an idea of whether your loft can be converted is to see whether any similar houses on your street have had loft conversions. Loft Conversions Bromley think there are key things you need to consider when weighing up whether a loft conversion is the right way to add more space to your property.
Need Planning Permission For Loft Conversions Bromley To Complete The Job
You'll need to assess your current loft space potential, secure planning permission and other consents, spend time getting the design right and appoint the best partners for your project. You can find out more about whether you'll need planning permission, and any other permissions you might need, by contacting us about building regulations and planning permission.
Sound insulation is often neglected in the design of a loft conversion, but something you should certainly factor into your thinking. Insulation is usually placed between floor joists, and this is typically 100mm-thick Rockwool fibre or similar — mainly for its sound-reduction properties.
Small Roof Space Bromley Conversions
If you live in a conservation area, or if, for example, your roof space isn't tall enough, getting planning permission may be more complicated. Traditional frame type roof structures are often the most suitable type for loft conversions, allowing the space to be opened up relatively easily and inexpensively. New floor joists may be required as part of your loft conversion.
For ease you can ask your joiner or builder to send building control a copy of the design. It's good to discuss your project with a specialist site insurance provider as loft conversion projects can be complex and often include liability assumed under the party wall act 1996.
