Loft Conversions Brixham

Brixham Loft Conversions (TQ5): On the whole the commonest way that house-holders generate some additional liveable space in their houses at present is by having an extension built on the property. This can be done on the front, the back or the side and no matter what may be the case you will end up extending the footprint made by your home. You can generate far more space for a comparable price by putting in a loft conversion, and even better you will not expand the footprint at all. Another alternative that may be feasible is to have your garage converted, but this will be dependant upon your having a garage to spare that you don't need for putting your car in. In most situations a loft conversion will likely not need any planning permission, add a good amount of value to your property, be less disruptive and messy than a typical extension and permit you to preserve your valuable garden space.

Loft Conversions Brixham - Loft Conversioners

Although there are plenty of conceivable uses to which you can put the additional room resulting from a loft conversion, you will in all probability already have a notion as to what you will use it for. It might be that you would like to build a den where your kids can enjoy their own quality space, maybe you want to put in an office where you are able to do your work in a tranquil and calm environment, or perhaps you need an extra bedroom or two to accommodate your growing family. Whether it is one of those uses, or another function that you want it to perform, a loft conversion is a fantastic means by which to do this.

A property in Brixham with a loft conversion is going to rise in value and you need to know by how much. All areas of Brixham will most likely have a ceiling price on homes like yours. Taking the value of your home beyond this figure can make it tricky to sell when you need to. This means that it could be poor value for money doing a loft conversion. You should bear this in mind, even if you currently have no plans to sell.

Though there are some exceptions, loft conversions in Brixham will not need planning permission. Before you proceed any further with your loft conversion, check with the local planning office for Brixham. You can get some help with this process from your preferred Brixham loft conversion company. The fact that you don't need planning permission does not mean that you do not have to abide by the current building regulations, which are different to planning. Building regulations are handled by the building control office, so that will be your next stop.

Roof Light Conversions Brixham

If you prefer not to change the shape and slope of your roof, the solution might be a "roof light conversion". Instead, it's solely a case of installing a sturdy floor, fitting an access staircase, and putting in skylight windows. Only lofts that currently have ample roof space and don't need to be extended at all, are suitable for roof light loft conversions.

Dormer Windows Brixham

Dormer windows are a good option to add more light and space into a loft area, and just as there are various sorts of loft conversion in Brixham, there are also distinct types of dormers to choose from. The most widespread varieties of dormer designs are: hipped dormers, flat roof dormers, eyebrow dormers, gable dormers and shed dormers. The easiest of these to build and possibly the most widely used in Brixham would be the flat roofed dormer window. This pattern also creates more additional space than the other designs, so it is functional as well as inexpensive, although it could be considered slightly less desirable than the other options. Shed dormers are very similar to flat roof dormers, featuring a roof (single-plane) sloping at an angle less than that of the house roof. Eyebrow dormers are very attractive in the proper setting and comprise a curving roof topping a low, wide window, they've got no straight surfaces. Gable dormers are considered more eye-catching with straightforward pitched rooves more appropriate for period houses, gable dormers are often termed dog-house dormer or gable fronted dormers. Hipped dormer windows are eye-catching, having three sloping surfaces much the same as the original roof, these may also be known as hip roof dormers.

History of Loft Conversions

Although the concept of a loft conversion might seem like a very "British" thing, the earliest loft conversions and maybe the first notions of upgrading such spaces started in nineteen sixties America. The location for this innovative building fad was the Soho district of New York City, where stylish, new living spaces were developed by artists and designers in the higher parts of delapidated industrial buildings. In fact such zones and industrial buildings hadn't been designated for this purpose, and hence were largely illegal at that time. It wasn't until nineteen seventy one that New York City finally made this practise legal, and thereafter many other sections of the city including Chelsea, Tribeca, Greenwich Village and Manhattan joined the revolution, and "loft living" became the thing to do for the young, wealthy and talented. In the UK loft conversion is a desirable concept especially in big urban centres such as Birmingham, Sheffield, London and Manchester, where space is costly and any method by which to get further liveable space without having to extend the structure's footprint is popular.
