Quotations for Loft Conversions in Accrington Lancashire

I guess one of the questions which will be foremost in your mind at this point is "what will it cost"? Obviously costs vary depending on the size and layout of the property and the kind of conversion being done. In the UK (2019) the average cost of a loft conversion works out at around £35,000, which gives you a rough idea of the level of costs involved. If this sort of figure is well within your budget you are good to go, if it is not realistic for you, you might need to do something different.

Loft conversions invariably add value to a property in Accrington, so finding out exactly how much that added value is likely to be is crucial. Your neighbourhood of Accrington will likely have a ceiling price on houses. Increasing the value of your property beyond this figure could cause difficulties in selling later on. A loft conversion becomes a much less attractive project in situations like these. You should bear this in mind, even if you currently have no plans to sell.

Planning permission is generally not needed for loft conversions in Accrington, but you need to be aware that there can be exceptions. Before any work begins you need to call and check with your local planning office. Any Accrington loft conversion company worth their salt will be more than willing to help you deal with this. Another issue that has nothing to do with planning permission is the building regulations, which you will of course have to adhere to. To discover what is required by law, seek the advice of your local council building control office.

Types of Loft Conversion: The main types of loft conversion that you'll come across in Accrington are: hip-to-gable loft conversions, mansard loft conversions, velux loft conversions, dormer loft conversions, roof lift loft conversions, roof light conversions and loft pods.

The thing about a loft conversion is that a lot of the hard work can be carried out externally using a scaffold. When you choose to have an extension done, the disruption can be considerable, but this isn't normally true with a loft conversion. It is a much less stressful experience when you can continue your daily life without being forced to handle dust and mess.

Roof Light Conversions Accrington: Unquestionably the most economical and least disruptive type of conversion is a "roof light loft conversion", whereby it isn't necessary to alter the slope or shape of the roof. This style of conversion involves simply putting in skylights, fitting an access staircase, and installing a sturdy floor. Only lofts which already have sufficient roof space and don't need extending at all, are suitable candidates for roof light loft conversions.
