Can Loft Get Converted?
Before you get anything done, you require working out to know whether your loft space is suitable to make the conversion. Most homes come with an allowance for permitted development – meaning you can get ahead with the conversion with no planning permission. However, if one resides in an area, which is conservative, or if, for instance, your roof space is not tall enough, it might get more complex.
Types of Loft Conversion
There are 4 major kinds of loft conversion:
- Roof Light
- Hip to Gable
The type of loft conversion one you opt for is probable to be determined by various factors, that your house age and the type and also your budget. Our experts always visit your house and review it for you before deciding on the type of loft conversion to opt for.
The minimum height required for the loft conversion is equivalent to 2.2 m. We measure the height by running a tape through the floor to ceiling at the highest room part. In case it is 2.2 m or even more, your loft must be tall enough to convert. Note, Victorian houses tend to become lower as compared to those constructed from the 1930s onwards, so might not have adequate head height.
The basis on when it was constructed, your home will either have rafters or roof trusses. By viewing through the loft hatch, we ger to know what kind of roof you have got. Rafters run across the roof edge and leave most triangular spaces below the hollow. Trusses, on the other hand, supports that run across the cross-sect of the loft. It is possible to convert loft with trusses, but additional structural support is required to replace trusses and it is probable to be more expensive.
