Loft Conversion Corsham

Corsham Loft Conversion and Design Services

Corsham Loft Conversions (SN13): Moving house because you need another room or two might be a step too far in today's Corsham housing market. Do you really want to put yourself through all the stress and hassle of moving, as well as the added financial outlay? However, with a loft conversion, you will be able to create that additional space while continuing to live in the house you love. A 20% to 30% increase in the market value of your property will likely be the result of having such work done. It is not at all surprising that getting a loft conversion is an increasingly popular course of action in Corsham at present.

Before going ahead with a project like this you'll need to be aware of the costs associated. Variables such as the size and layout of the house and the type of loft conversion required will impact on the price somewhat. Whilst your planned loft conversion might cost less or more than average, the usual cost in 2020 is approximately £35,000. If this appears about right and is within your budget you can proceed, if not possibly a garage conversion would be better for you.

These numbers should not be considered as gospel though, they are merely intended as a rough guide. Since the size of the loft conversion will affect the cost, you are able to get an approximation using a construction work and building materials cost of around £1,250 per square metre. That is not the end of it, since you will need to add building control fees, planning fees and architects fees at least.

You must check that your particular loft is suitable for converting, as not every loft is. To guarantee that your loft can actually be converted, call somebody in to have a look at it. The most significant issue is the height of the loft space since you need a minimum height of 2.2 metres to successfully do a loft conversion. To save time, you could at first check this yourself, by jumping up into your loft space with a tape measure. The style of roof will also be an issue, rooves built with trusses are costlier and more difficult than those made with rafters.

One solution that you might think about is a shell loft conversion, if you're competent at do-it-yourself. This is a service where the contractor will execute all of the main structural tasks (often called a first-fix loft conversion), such as stairs, roofing work, joists, Velux windows, dormers and steelwork. All of the remaining work is then completed by the home owner (ie you) or by a nominated tradesman. If you're on a tight budget, a shell loft conversion could possibly be the perfect answer for you.

Loft Conversion Planning Permission Corsham: Planning permission is not normally necessary for loft conversions, although if this is to be the case various conditions must be observed. Planning permission will be required if your roof space has to be altered and the outcome goes above specified limitations. Most of the conditions which should be satisfied are: frosted glass is necessary on side-facing windows, the uppermost part of the roof must not be exceeded by the extension, verandas, balconies and raised platforms aren't permitted, as observed from the main highway no roof extension should exceed the height of the existing roof slope, pre-existing exterior walls should not be overhung by roof extensions, building materials employed in conversion must complement pre-existing materials, a limit of 40 cubic metres added roof space for terraced houses and 50 cubic metres for semi-detached/detached houses. Also understand that it is houses that these regulations refer to and not flats, converted houses, maisonettes or other buildings. Development rights are restricted and special planning rules are enforced in specific areas. The easiest way figure out if you need planning permission, is to check with the local authority planning department.

With "roof light conversions" there's no need to alter the shape and pitch of the roof, making it far and away the least disruptive and most cost-effective type of loft conversion. This sort of conversion involves only installing an adequate floor, putting in skylight windows, and fitting an access staircase. Roof light conversions are only plausible when you've already got sufficient roof space in your attic. (Tags: Roof Light Conversions Corsham, Roof Light Loft Conversions Corsham)
