Loft Conversions Oldham

Oldham Loft Conversions (OL1): The way the housing market is in Oldham these days, moving home simply because you need an extra room or two might not be the best option. It is not just the financial repercussions involved with moving home, but also the hassle and stress of the process. Instead you could stay in your current house and create that extra living space by having a loft conversion. The cost of getting such work done should be cancelled out by a 20% to 30% escalation in you house's value, if you choose to sell it later on. It's little wonder that having a loft conversion is an ever more popular move to make in Oldham right now.

Not everyone understands the fact that there is always a ceiling price on properties in any neighbourhood of Oldham. Homes that are valued above this ceiling price can be tricky to sell. A loft conversion becomes a much less appealing project in situations like these. This may be less of an issue for you if you do not plan to sell.

An alternative that you might consider is a shell loft conversion, especially if you are proficient at DIY projects. That's where all of the major structural work, like staircase, steelwork (when needed), joists, roof alterations, dormers/mansard and skylights/windows is done. All of the remaining jobs is then done by the customer (namely you) or by your favourite tradesman. Shell loft conversions tend to be considerably cheaper, so if funding is a worry, this could be a better solution.
