Since we work professionally, here is a brief summary of how we do a loft conversion from start to finish to give you a hint.
STAGE 1: We will strip off the roof tiles and battens on the part where the extension will be built. We will then remove the rafters that are no longer needed and set up temporary support for the remaining structure.
STAGE 2: We will proceed in installing steel beams that will create a framework and provide support for the floor and roof structure of the new loft.
STAGE 3: Between the steel, beams is where we’ll fit the new floor joists to complete the floor structure.
STAGE 4: After the floor is finished, we will then proceed in constructing the dormer, which is a timber-framed structure that will extend the amount of usable space in the loft.
STAGE 5: At the final stage, all the windows, doors, stairs, plumbing, and electrics will be installed. Roofing, flooring, plastering, and tiling will also be done afterward. The room will be inspected if everything is in standard condition, and then the construction will end with decoration and final touches.
By knowing the roof structure your Canvey Island house has, the available floor space and headroom for the converted loft will be determined. The roof framing will also establish the work that needs to be done. The rafter is the classic type found in most houses built in the pre-1960s. With this kind of roof, a loft conversion can be constructed seamlessly because the height it provides is usually the standard meter required. The loft conversion will be efficiently accomplished because of how easy it will be for us to conduct the construction. A trussed roof, on the other hand, is more modern and is commonly used in households nowadays. For a loft conversion to be done in this kind of roof structure, complex planning is required. The headroom it provides gives the typical challenge to build a comfortable loft. However, in the end, whichever of the two you have, a loft conversion can still be done on your property in Canvey Island.
Hiring us will only give you the anticipation of owning the loft you want, but if you were to ask us about the timeframe the construction will take, we can’t with an exact answer. However, we can still provide you with a reliable timespan to give you an idea. The duration that it would take a usual loft conversion to be finished depends upon the type you’re going to get. If it's an internal loft conversion, which requires a minimal structural change in your property, the construction will take 4 weeks or less. If it’s a mansard loft conversion, which is the opposite of the latter and requires a massive transformation of your house, construction will be completed within 8 to 10 weeks or more.
Whether you’re converting your loft into a bedroom or a lounge area for entertaining guests, it’s a good option to have an open layout for your loft, rather than creating many partitions. This allows you to truly maximize the space and give your loft a welcoming feel.
There are different ways to style your loft and make the space feel bigger. Having an accent wall on one end of your loft can potentially open up the space and bring in more interest in the design of your loft. Having an accent wall is a nice way to make the space not feel too monotonous; it adds a bit of fun and quirk to your loft.
Choosing the overall theme and vibe of your loft is essential in making your loft an extension of your home and a reflection of your character. If you want to create an atmosphere of productivity, rather than creating a “classroom-like” setting, it would be more innovative to opt for a (modern) industrial theme for your loft. If you want something of a fresher vibe, a Bohemian-themed loft can add a factor of whimsy.
Aside from having large windows to bring in sunlight, it would also be optimal to have lighting fixtures installed in your loft.
Night Lamp, Sconces
These are perfect for lofts that will be converted into bedrooms. Lamps are movable and come in different sizes, while sconces are typically stuck to a part of your wall. These will help create ambient lighting to soften the mood of your loft during nighttime.
Desk Lamps, Spotlights
These are perfect for work areas. If your loft will be converted into a home office, having these in your loft will be great. They can help foster productivity and creativity, especially when cool lighting is installed in these fixtures.
Pendant Lamps and Chandeliers
These work well for lofts converted into walk-in wardrobes. It helps enhance that luxurious and glamorous feel.
