Loft conversions are an increasingly popular option for homeowners in Welwyn Garden City. As the town's population rises, living space becomes more cramped and expensive. Loft conversions provide a cost-effective way of adding a much-needed extra room that can be used for bedrooms, home offices, playrooms, or even additional storage.
If you hire a Chartered Building Surveyor, an architect, or a loft conversion business, they will begin by doing a thorough examination of your loft and walls to identify any possible issues and assess the structural work that is required. If you hire your own constructor, make sure the building is correctly examined to avoid complications throughout the construction process. You may consult with a licensed surveyor, and we can even project manage your loft conversion for you. Older roofs are generally easier to convert than newer ones with intricate factory-built roof trusses. It is possible; it is simply more difficult and costly. A skilled Structural Engineer will need to design and calculate any structural alterations and steel supporting beams.
Building requirements must be followed if you are converting a loft. Your architect or designer will advise you on this, but you will most likely follow the 'building notice' procedure, in which the local authority is notified of your construction and inspects at critical stages. If you do not get building regulation permission, the local authorities may take enforcement action, and your property may be more difficult to sell because surveyors look for this when inspecting a home for a buyer. The structural work, fire separation and control, thermal performance, stairs, and windows will be of interest to the building inspector. The approval of building regulations validates the work's safety and structural suitability.
