Loft Conversions Rushden UK

Rushden Loft Conversions (NN10): In general the most common method by which homeowners create some extra living area in their houses nowadays is by building an extension on the structure. This may be built on the back, the side or the front and whatever is the case you will end up substantially increasing your home's footprint. It is possible to develop far more space at a similar price converting your loft, and even better you will not expand the footprint at all. An additional option of course that could be possible is to do a garage conversion, however this is dependant upon your having a garage to spare that isn't required for your car. Generally a loft conversion will be less disruptive and messy than a typical extension, add a good amount of value to your property, allow you to keep your treasured garden space and will likely not need any planning permission.

I guess one of the questions that will be foremost in your mind at this point is "what will it cost"? The final cost is determined by the kind of loft conversion you do and the style of property you own. In 2019 the average cost of a loft conversion was about £35,000, but this is just a guide, yours could possibly be less or more than this. If a number like this does not terrify you at all then you might be in a good position to forge ahead with the project, if it does scare you, an alternate solution may be better.

Don't count on the accuracy of these numbers though, considering that so many criteria will impact on the price tag. The cost of the building materials and construction work will usually be about £1,250 per square metre. When you add this to planning fees, building control fees and architect fees, you will get an idea of the overall cost.

You shouldn't simply assume that you will be able to do a loft conversion, since not all lofts are suitable. To ensure that your loft can be converted, get an expert round to have a look at it. A height of no less than 2.2 metres is necessary in your loft if you're to have any possibility of putting in a loft conversion. Checking the height doesn't really need a specialist, in actual fact you could do this for yourself using little more than a ladder and a measuring tape. Is your roof built with trusses or rafters? You might not think that this is important but it does affect the ease and cost of the project. Doing conversions on trussed roofs tends to be more difficult and costlier.

If you happen to be competent at do-it-yourself and are up for a project like this, you might prefer to get a shell loft conversion. This is an option where the conversion contractor will complete all the essential structural tasks (also known as a first-fix loft conversion), like dormers/mansard, steel beams (when needed), structural floor, staircase, external doors and windows and roof alterations. All of the finishing work is then done by the householder (to be precise you) or by your favourite tradesman.

The nice thing about a loft conversion is that most of the work can be done from the outside using scaffolding.

Roof Light Conversions Rushden

If you would prefer a less costly and disruptive kind of loft conversion, the "roof light conversion" might be the solution, because adjustments to the pitch and shape or your roof are not required. This kind of conversion involves only installing an adequate floor, fitting an access staircase, and putting in windows. These conversions are only feasible for lofts that already have enough roof space.

Dormer Windows Rushden

Dormer windows are among the best ways to provide both space and light into your loft area, and as there are various types of loft conversions in Rushden, you'll also find there are several types of dormer windows available. The most popular varieties of dormer design include: shed dormers, eyebrow dormers, gable dormers, flat roof dormers and hipped dormers. The simplest of these dormer windows to put in and probably the most frequently used in Rushden is the flat-roofed dormer. This design also generates more additional space than all of the other designs, therefore it is practical as well as inexpensive, though it could be regarded as slightly less attractive than some of the other alternatives. Eyebrow dormer windows are really eye-catching in the proper setting and consist of a curving roof on top of a wide, low window, they have no straight surfaces. Shed dormer windows are very similar to flat roofed dormers, featuring a roof (on a single plane) sloping at an angle less than that of the house roof. Gable dormers are more eye-catching with straightforward pitched roofs more suited to older properties, gable dormers are often referred to as gable fronted dormers ot dog-house dormers. Hipped dormers are eye-catching, have three sloped surfaces much the same as the existing roof, these may also be known as hip roof dormers.

Cellar Conversions

A basement or cellar conversion is another splendid way to add extra living area to your house. Not surprisingly this can only be carried out on particular kinds of residence, normally older properties ie: Victorian or period properties. If you're lucky enough to have the luxury of a basement/cellar, you will want to make the most of it and get working on a conversion? As well as the obvious advantage of more space, a cellar conversion could also eliminate dampness problems and increase the worth of your house. Quite a few home owners only use their cellars or basements as dumping grounds (they probably call it storage!) for all sorts of household trash, much like what folks use their lofts for. Why don't you transform your basement into a gym, a workshop or a children's play room and make it a great deal more than just storage. A self-contained flat or a kitchen/dining room are among the other possibilities if your basement is big enough. (Tags: Basement Conversions, Cellar Conversion, Cellar Conversions)
