Loft Conversions Crewe UK

Crewe Loft Conversions (CW1): Generally the most common method by which homeowners generate some additional liveable space in their houses these days is by having an extension built on their building. This may be added to the front, the back or the side and whatever is the case you will end up significantly increasing the footprint made by your home. It's possible to create a lot more space at a roughly similar price converting your loft, and you won't expand the footprint at all. One other option which might be possible is to have a garage conversion, but this will be dependant on you having a spare garage that you don't need for putting your car in. In most situations a professionally converted loft will be less disruptive and messy than a typical extension, add a good amount of value to your property, allow you to keep your precious garden space and is not going to need any planning permission.

I guess you will now be asking "what will it cost"? And it is essential to establish a spending budget early on. Variables such as the size and layout of the house and the sort of loft conversion needed will affect the price considerably. To give you a rough guideline, the average cost of a loft conversion in 2019 was £35,000, so having this figure in mind would be useful. There are less expensive methods by which to add value to your house (a garage conversion for example), so if this is too costly for you, there are other possibilities.

Don't rely on the accuracy of these figures though, considering that so many factors will impact on the price tag. Because the size of the loft conversion will determine the price, you are able to get an approximation by using a construction work and materials cost of approximately £1,250 per square metre. Then, planning fees, building control fees and architect fees will have to be added to the bill.

Before you get too excited you should be warned that not all lofts are suitable for conversion. The best way to make sure that your loft can be converted, is to get in touch with a specialist. Any loft conversion needs a height of no less than 2.2 meters. Checking the height of your loft does not need an expert, in fact you could quite easily do this for yourself with nothing more than a tape measure and a ladder. Another crucial issue is the style of roof which you have on your house, trussed roofs are more pricey to convert than those with rafters.

If you're okay at do-it-yourself and fancy a project of this complexity, you may choose to have a shell loft conversion. All the main structural work, including windows/skylights, staircase, dormers, steel beams, joists and roofing, will be done by the conversion specialist. The internal jobs are left to the customer (to be precise you), so you're able to use your own skills to finish what's left as you please. Shell loft conversions tend to be a lot cheaper, so if money is in short supply, this could possibly be the answer.

Converting Lofts Crewe Cheshire

While the concept of a loft conversion might be considered very "British", the first loft conversions and probably the first ideas for transforming such spaces originated in 1960's America. The exact location of this brand new building craze was the Soho district of New York City, where stylish, new living areas were developed by local artists, designers and their like in the upper parts of run down industrial structures. In actual fact those zones and structures had not been set aside for residential usage, and thus were considered illegal in those times. It wasn't until nineteen seventy one that New York finally legalized this practise, and subsequently many other areas of the city including Chelsea, Greenwich Village, Manhattan and Tribeca joined the revolution, and "loft living" was popular for the talented, wealthy and young. In Britain converting a loft is a really attractive proposition in huge cities like London, Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham, where land is limited and any way to gain additional liveable space without the need to extend the building's footprint is not surprisingly welcome.

Loft Pods, House Extension Pods and Loft BUDS
