An attic's excess room may be utilized for much more than just storage. It may be converted into a home office or even a bedroom for guests or a child. Home renovation specialists understand that converting your attic is not something you can jump into; there are specific requirements to determine whether your attic is a viable candidate for an attic conversion. Here are the five codes used to determine this: Area. To be a good candidate for an attic conversion, the usable area in your attic must first meet the rules that govern the other rooms in your home.
Windows and an openable space. According to home renovation experts, an attic's minimum window space must be at least 8% of the usable floor area for it to be a suitable candidate for conversion. The openable space, on the other hand, must be at least 4%, which means you'll need eight square feet to allow for outside access through the windows. If your heating system is incapable of doing so, try increasing attic insulation or replacing it with a more powerful unit. Height of the ceiling.
According to experts, at least 50% of the useable area in your attic must have ceilings of at least 7 feet. If you're having trouble meeting this requirement, you can have a dormer added to boost the ceiling height. Capability to provide assistance. Stairs will be required for access to your attic if you intend to convert it into a dwelling area. Keeping this in mind, the law demands that your stairs have a load capability of 30 pounds per square foot in order for your attic to be suitable for an attic conversion project.
Loft conversions come in a variety of styles. Which one is best for you is determined by the size of your home (especially the loft or attic cavity) as well as the form and pitch of your roof. These are just a few examples of the loft conversions we can carry out.
DORMER LOFT CONVERSION
The most common type of loft conversion is a dormer loft conversion. It entails adding a box-shaped structure to a slanted roof (or, more precisely, through a pitched roof), elevating the height of the loft, and offering extra head and floor space for comfortable movement around your loft.
MANSARD LOFT CONVERSION
A flat roof spreads outwards before falling down at a 72-degree pitch in mansard loft conversions. Fitted in the same way as a dormer expansion, they provide greater space and, because to the sloped roof, allow the installation of Velux windows and blinds.
HIP-TO-GABLE LOFT CONVERSION
Semi-detached houses are popular for hip-to-gable loft conversions. The hip of the roof is vertically lifted from the roofline, forming a new gable end that essentially makes a bigger version of the dormer loft conversion.
L-SHAPE LOFT CONVERSION
Following completion, an L-shaped loft conversion acquires its name from the peculiar curve of the roof. It is made up of two independent dormers, one on each long roof side and one at the back or front, that merge to form an L-shape. This strategy provides more space and headroom.
