Timeline and Fees of a Loft Conversion

What are the Steps?

The first step for a Loft Conversion would be scheduling a consultation and inspection. Since a Loft Conversion typically converts roof or attic space, this area of your home will be inspected. Things such as chimneys and verandas may prove to be obstacles, but can be worked around nonetheless. Height requirements, pipes, and wiring will be checked as well. The most important factor, however, is surveying whether or not your home structure can carry the load of an additional building on your roof. Once your home is approved to be suitable for the build, the planning and designing phase begins. Wiring will be adjusted if needed, then floor insulation and floorboards will be put into place. Following this would be building and creating an attachment to your home already. Putting down partitions and building proper beams and creating a structure to your new space, then adding in skylights and windows to bring in light. Doors and a connecting stairwell will be included later on in the process as well to give you access and connect the loft to the main part of the home. Other features that will be fixed and added as well are additional vents, roof insulation, electrical wiring, and water pipes. Adding these up will make the loft fully functional and a usable part of the home.
