As the area of the loft conversion will affect the price, you can get an approximation using a construction work and materials cost of about £1,250 per m2. Plus there are other costs to consider such as building control fees, planning fees and architect fees.

Before taking things too far it's best to bear in mind that not every loft is suitable for conversion. To get the low down on whether your loft can actually be converted, call a specialist in to inspect it. One aspect is the total height, if it's in excess of 2.2m you should be on track. With nothing other than a ladder and measuring tape, you can climb up into your loft space and check this yourself. The style of roof you've got will also be an issue, roofs with rafters tend to be easier and less costly to convert than ones with trusses.

Something that you might think about if you're good at DIY, and fancy such a project, is to opt for a shell loft conversion. Also sometimes called first-fix loft conversion, this is where the main structural tasks are completed, including steel beams, staircase, windows, structural floor, mansard/dormers and roof alterations. The internal jobs are left to the householder (that is to say you), allowing you to use your own initiative to finish what's left at your leisure.

The best part with loft conversions is that a great deal of the hard work can be accomplished externally using scaffolding. This will be heartening for property owners given that disruption triggers stress, and we all prefer to avoid that. There should also be less dust and mess internally, which means you're able to carry on your day to day life while the work progresses.

Loft Stairs Ipswich

Loft Stairs Ipswich If you do end up having a loft conversion built on your Ipswich property you will need to include some decent access to get up to and down from your new living area. This means adding a loft staircase or at the very least a loft ladder. There are many different designs of loft stairs to choose from, and they're generally manufactured out of metal or wood. The style of loft stairs you decide on may be influenced by the layout of your house, but you are able to obtain them in spiral form if you want elegance or in space saving designs for more convenience. Whatever you go for, you want to finish up with safe, convenient access which does not interfere too much with the existing living area. It must also adhere to the latest Building Regulations, and provide a safe escape route if there is ever a fire. (Tags: Loft Stairs Ipswich, Attic Stairs Ipswich, Loft Ladders Ipswich)
