Depending on the roof structure and planning constraints, a loft conversion is one of the most straightforward ways of getting extra space. Almost all houses can benefit from this extension with a bit of basic planning. Vision Construction can advise and support you through the planning stages and choices of fittings.
A loft conversion will usually involve:
- reinforcement of the floor
- added insulation
- a staircase to the loft
- electrics, lighting and heating
- fire safety measures to comply with Building Regulations such as fire doors and smoke alarms
- ensuite shower rooms
A dormer loft extension which does not require dramatic changes to the roof structure can be added to the design – this will increase the useable floorspace and can be used to add head height which gives you more options when it comes to placement of the stairs.
