A loft conversion in Westminster is slowly becoming popular because of the benefits it gives to every household who decides to have it in their home. You can also take advantage of the value that will be added to your property once you opt for a loft conversion. According to the Nationwide Building Society, a loft conversion can add value to your property by up to 20%. A loft conversion can also be an interesting selling point if you decide to sell your Westminster home in the future.

As you determine the purpose of your loft, you must also consider if the type of loft conversion you want matches it. There are several types of loft conversion that you can get, the most budget-friendly option is the internal loft conversion which only requires minimum expert intervention since the work revolves around the existing loft space. The dormer loft conversion is more expensive than the first one, but the cost it comes with is reasonable since with this loft conversion you’ll be enjoying more headroom and floor space. A mansard loft conversion is the most expensive type of loft conversion as it requires a complex plan for it to be a success. You’ll also need to secure planning permission for this type as construction is a bit intricate. If we pull off this type of loft conversion, you’ll not only be enjoying a new space but also an aesthetically-pleasing element in your home.
Acquiring a building regulation certificate is essential before starting a loft conversion on your property in Westminster. Having approval from the local authority in your area or a private building inspection company means that the construction has complied with several matters like the sufficiency of the structural strength of the new floor, the stability of the structure, fire safety, and more. Obtaining this type of document will also help you to avoid getting your property devalued after the conversion.
A loft conversion may be cheaper than getting a new house but you’re still bound to spend some money. The usual cost for a loft conversion starts at £25,000 which may only include the installation of small roof lights and floor space utilization will only be maximized by such. If you’re after a more substantial conversion, the cost may increase up to £85,000 depending on your chosen type of loft conversion.
For the completion of construction, a loft conversion in Westminster properties usually takes 8 to 10 weeks. The key to having a smooth loft conversion project is to work with a loft specialist that has a team consisting of experts in the field so while the construction is ongoing you may stay within your house to continue with your normal life while enjoying minimal disruption during the construction process.
