Does A Loft Conversion Really Add Value To My Property

 

Can I Convert My Wasted Loft Space

Yes, most lofts can be converted as long as there is enough headroom. Ideally you need a minimum of 2.3m (7 feet 6 inches in old money) to start with from the existing ceiling joists to the apex of the roof.
So, once the new loft floor (about 200mm or 8 inches) and ceiling (about 100mm or 4 inches) is in place in the loft conversion you will be left with a ceiling height of about 2m (6 feet 6 inches).
Need a visual of this then, take a look at the closest door to you – this is likely to be 1.981mm in height which is just a touch under 2m. So as you can see, if can not achieve at least 2m then converting your loft simply wouldn’t be worth it!

I Have W Shaped Trusses Can I still Have A Loft Conversion”

Yes you can, a lot of modern (post 1960) housing have roofs constructed using trusses, you can tell if your loft is of trussed roof construction as there will be timbers in a triangular or “W”shape inside your attic, with no real clear space. But don’t worry it is still possible to have a loft room of your choice, using today’s modern building techniques.

Do I need Planning Permission To Convert My Loft”

It depends on your situation. Under new regulations that came into effect from 1 October 2008 a loft conversion for your house is likely to be considered a “permitted development” which will not require you to apply for planning consent. Of course this is subject certain limits and conditions – please see the Planning Portal website for details. But please be aware that you will still need Building Regulations for your loft conversion.

Does A Loft Conversion Really Add Value To My Property

Yes it does. Here at UK Loft Conversion we firmly believe that a loft conversion will add value to your property… but we would say that wouldn’t we! Maybe not immediately when the work is finished, but over a time it will.
