Loft Conversions Lewes

Lewes Loft Conversions (BN7): In the current Lewes housing market, moving home might not be the preferred alternative when you are merely seeking to gain an additional room or two. It is not just the financial outlay that you need to consider in the moving procedure, but also the aggravation and stress. However, with a loft conversion, it's possible to gain that additional space and continue living in your existing house. The expense of getting this work done will be more than offset by a 20-30% escalation in the value of your house, should you ever elect to sell it later on. This leaves you in no doubt why electing to put in a loft conversion is becoming ever more commonplace in Lewes.

To get advice about whether your loft can in fact be converted, call someone in to have a look at it. A loft conversion requires a minimum height of 2.2m. You can always clamber up into your loft space and check this for yourself.

Something you might give some thought to if you're proficient at do-it-yourself, and are keen to take on a project of this complexity, is to opt for a shell loft conversion. This is an option whereby the conversion specialist will accomplish all the important structural work (often called a first-fix loft conversion), like Velux windows, steelwork (when needed), roofing work, structural floor, dormers and stairs. The rest of the project is done by the property owner (to be precise you), so it can be completed to your own specifications and at your own leisure.

You could be feeling that you can't face the disruption and mess of such extensive building work, but since a lot of the structural work on loft conversions can normally be completed from outside, this shouldn't put you off. Any disruption on the inside of your home, should therefore, be minimal. The chance to go on living as normal is essential and keeping your property free of mess and dust helps to achieve this.

Mansard Loft Conversions: The Mansard form of loft conversion was developed sometime in the Seventeenth Century due to a French architect by the name of Francois Mansart (yes Mansart not Mansard!). He thought it would be a massive space saving method which would deliver an enormous amount of further living area where there previously was none. The Mansard loft conversion can only be utilized on roof which are pitched and additional space is created by elevating one of the walls (quite often at the back of a house) and also leveling out that part of the roof, thereby creating an essentially box contour. The angle of the wall that's lifted needs to be not less than 72 degrees. It will very often be the case that the wall which needs lifting is shared with a neighbour (particularly with terraced houses), so this means you will be needing the collaboration of your immediate neighbour - yet another worry if there is any animosity!
