Loft conversions may be an excellent method to increase the size of a home without expanding its footprint. Whether it's a growing family, a new pastime, or the desire for a dedicated home office space, a loft conversion is frequently the ideal answer for homeowners looking to make the most of their current properties. Our loft conversion guide covers everything from expenses and planning permission to the finest design ideas for your project. Loft conversions are a particularly beneficial alternative if obtaining planning approval for an expansion is going to be challenging, or where there simply isn't enough exterior space. It is also worth noting that, according to Nationwide, an extra bedroom and bathroom can add to about 20% of your property’s value.
Some lofts in your home are more suitable for conversion than others. Loft conversions may be costly and disruptive, so be sure the final product is a functional area and/or delivers the value you hoped for. The following factors influence whether or not your loft can be converted:
HEAD HEIGHT must be measured from the top of the loft floor joists to the underside of the ridge beam. Although construction codes allow for head heights of 2.2m, 2.4m is a far more comfortable height once a new floor covering has been installed and the ceiling finish has been completed.
ROOF PITCH The higher the roof pitch, in general, the easier the loft conversion, with most angles above 30 degrees works well. Furthermore, the greater the roof pitch, the greater the possible head height.
A simple check in your loft will indicate which you have, with cut roofs being common in buildings constructed before the 1960s. Those born after 1960 have a leg up over those born after. A cut roof is constructed using rafters, joists, and purlins, leaving the majority of the triangular area below open. A trussed roof employs W-shaped trusses (or supports) that give bracing support and run through the cross-section of the loft, thereby covering some of the void required to produce usable space. Both are convertible but will necessitate distinct techniques.

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.
