Loft conversions in Berkshire can be a great way to give your home a new lease on life.
If you're thinking about converting your loft, consider these benefits:
- By converting your loft, you'll be able to create more living space in your home. This can be very useful if you have a growing family or need more storage space.
- The extra space created by a loft conversion could also help boost the value of your property. If you're considering selling your house soon, this could help sell it faster and for more money than if it didn't have an attic conversion.
- Loft conversions aren't just for homes—they can also be done on commercial properties as well! If you own an old building that needs some updating or modernization, turning an unused space into a usable living or working quarters could be a great way to breathe new life into it!
There are many things to consider when you're planning a Berkshire loft conversion. One of the most important is fire safety. Consider installing smoke alarms in your attic space—especially if there are any vents or chimneys up there that could allow smoke from a fire below to reach it very quickly (remember: smoke rises).
A well-built and sophisticatedly decorated loft conversion may add 10-20% to the value of your property.
One of the first inquiries we get is if a loft conversion requires the services of an architect. No, you do not, however, it is strongly advised that you do. Loft conversions are specialised projects, and while there are initial charges to pay an architect's fees, they might save you money in the long run if things go wrong and you need to make changes. They also make greater use of space, ensuring that you are not dissatisfied with your new room. A professional architect's role is to develop drawings and submit them to the local planning company, which will advise you on your legal requirements.
You don't have to become a loft conversion specialist, but you should be aware that there are five different sorts of conversions. Each has advantages and serves distinct purposes. Rooflight conversions are sometimes regarded as the most affordable since they need substantially less structural work to install. And you'd be shocked at the variety of roof windows available. Dormer loft conversions: These are used to offer more head height where space is limited, but they can be ugly from the exterior of your property. Hip-to-gable conversions: These include removing the sloping end of a roof and replacing it with a vertical wall to produce a new gable end, which is common in semi-detached houses. Gable-to-gable conversions are accomplished by building a box extension that spans the two gables. To support this, the gable ends must be raised in some circumstances. Mansard loft conversions create extra room by replacing the roof slopes with steeper sloping sides and finishing with a flat box roof over the top.
The average cost of a Loft Conversion in Berkshire is between £40,000 to £90,000. (in 2022) The most common type of Loft Conversion is the dormer as it adds the most space and best light to your property. A loft conversion will not only give you extra space but also enhance your living space on your property. A loft conversion price depends on many factors such as type of the conversion, type of the roof you have, type of the lighting you want in the loft, the type of windows required, the size of the project, fixtures and fittings, nature of the exterior, client's personal requirements and the site's location. If you want to know the exact cost of your Loft Conversion in Berkshire, you will need to book a site survey or send us your drawings and our loft specialist will review them and get back to you with a quotation.
