Loft Conversions Aldridge

Aldridge Loft Conversions (WS9): For the most part the commonest method by which home-owners generate some additional liveable space in their houses at present is by getting an extension built on their structure. This may be on the side, the front or the back and whichever holds true you will end up extending the footprint of your home. You can develop more room for a comparable cost by doing a loft conversion, and you'll not increase the footprint at all. The other alternative which could be feasible is to do a garage conversion, but this is dependant upon you having a spare garage that you don't need for your car. Usually a loft conversion will permit you to preserve your invaluable garden space, add a good amount of value to your property, be much less disruptive and messy than a conventional extension and is not going to require planning permission.

You need to check that your particular loft is a candidate for converting, because not every loft in Aldridge is.

This is one thing that you can even check yourself, simply climb up into your loft with a tape measure. An additional crucial issue is the type of roof that you have on your home, trussed roofs are more costly to convert than ones with rafters.

Mansard Conversions

The Mansard form of loft conversion was first seen in the 1600's the brainwave of a little known French architect by the name of Francois Mansart (yes Mansart not Mansard!). It was intended as a big way of creating extra space which would gain a massive magnitude of further liveable space where previously there wasn't any. The Mansard sort of loft conversion is only used on roof which are pitched and the space is fashioned by building up one of the walls (almost always at the back of a house) and flattening out that part of the roof, subsequently creating a virtually vertical appearance. The final angle of the wall that is lifted have got to be no less than seventy two degrees. It's normally the situation that the wall which needs heightening is also your neighbour's (particularly with houses that are terraced), which means you'll need your neighbour's cooperation - a further worry if there's any animosity!

Loft Conversion - The Beginnings

Converting Lofts Aldridge West Midlands

Although the process of doing a loft conversion might seem like an awfully "British" thing, some of the earliest loft conversions and maybe the first notions of transforming lofts originated in 1960's America. The neighbourhood that was involved in this new building revolution was the Soho district of New York City, where trendy, new living environments were built by local designers and artists in the upper sections of derelict industrial buildings. In actual fact these industrial buildings and areas were not allocated for this purpose, and subsequently were considered illegal at the time. It was not until 1971 that the city ultimately made this practise legal, and thereafter various other districts of New York such as Greenwich Village, Tribeca, Manhattan and Chelsea jumped on the bandwagon, and "loft living" became the thing to do for the young, talented and wealthy. In the United Kingdom doing a loft conversion is a desirable proposition particularly in huge population centres such as London, Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham, where land is in short supply and any way to generate more liveable space without extending the structure's footprint is sought after.
