There are five main types of loft conversions: roof light/Velux conversions, dormer conversions, hip-to-gable conversions, mansard conversions, and L-shaped.
Roof light/Velux conversions are made by inserting windows into the roof space to let in more natural light.
Dormer conversions involve extending the roofline and adding a dormer window to create more living space.
Hip-to-gable conversions are when you extend the floor area of your property by creating an attic extension that is shaped like a hip gable.
Mansard conversions involve creating a new upper storey with sloping roofs that can be used for bedrooms or living rooms.
Finally, L-shaped lofts are created by extending one side of your home while keeping the other side untouched.
The minimum head height of a loft should be 2.2 meters. This is the minimum required height to allow you to move around the loft without having to bend your head or stoop over. As you know, it's important that your Redbridge loft has a head height of at least 2.2 meters. Our research shows that this is the minimum height required for a comfortable living space.
We recommend measuring your Redbridge loft once you've finished deciding on it so that you can be sure to have enough space for all of your furniture and belongings. We also recommend measuring any doorways or other openings to ensure that they are not too low for anyone who will be using them regularly.
For a loft conversion in Redbridge, you will need to insulate the walls and floors of the space. This is important for both safety and comfort reasons, as it helps regulate the temperatures inside your home. The most popular type of insulation used in loft conversions is mineral wool or rock wool insulation. This material is non-combustible and offers good fire protection, making it an ideal choice for a loft conversion. It also provides excellent acoustic insulation against noise from outside sources and reduces heat loss through walls and ceilings. Additionally, fiberglass insulation can be used to fill cavities and provide additional thermal protection. Finally, reflective bubble wrap foil insulation can help reduce heat loss from your roof and ensure your energy bills stay low!
The average cost of a Loft Conversion in Redbridge 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.
