Loft Conversions Braintree

Braintree Loft Conversions (CM7): In the current Braintree housing market, moving house might not be the preferred option if you are merely seeking to gain an additional room or 2. It is not just the financial outlay that you should think about in the moving process, but also the stress and aggravation. However, with a loft conversion, you will be able to achieve that additional space whilst continuing to live in your existing home. A 30% increase in the value of your house could be the consequence of having such work done. It is hardly surprising that the modern option is put in a loft conversion.

Since there are a number of variables involved in the costs, you should only take this as a general guideline. The majority of the cost will be taken up by construction work and materials, and at the time of writing this works out at around £1,250 per square metre. That is not the end of it though, as you will have to consider planning fees, building control fees and architect fees at the very least.

You must not just assume that you can go ahead and do a loft conversion, given that not all lofts in Braintree are suitable. The fastest way to guarantee that your loft can in fact be converted, is to bring in a specialist. A height of no less than 2.2 metres is necessary in your loft if you're to have any chance whatsoever of doing a loft conversion. With nothing other than a ladder and measuring tape, you can clamber up into your loft space and check this for yourself. The type of roof you have will also be a factor, roofs built with rafters tend to be less costly and easier to convert than those with trusses.

One solution that you might consider is a shell loft conversion, especially if you happen to be skilled at DIY. This is where all the important structural work, such as windows, joists, roofing work, dormers/mansard, stairs and steel beams (when needed) is done. The rest of the project is done by the householder (ie you), so it can be completed at your leisure and carried out to your own specifications.
