Loft Conversions in the UK

With the ever soaring expense of buying a property in the UK in recent times, not every property owner is even able to find the cash to move to a bigger house simply to gain that extra bit of living space. There are more expenses than simply the asking price of the new house to take into consideration, the physical act of home can be expensive and there will be lots of additional costs to consider. If your property is no longer big enough to accommodate your growing family, moving home isn't the only solution.

You could extend your current home to create more room but this can be quite expensive and may be dependent on whether or not you can get planning permission. Yet another potential option is a garage conversion, which would be cheaper but depends upon you actually having a garage and not needing it for parking your car. Potentially the most effective solution is to do a loft conversion, which could add plenty of value to your property and shouldn't need planning permission.

Over the last few years, for the reasons mentioned above, loft conversion has become more popular than ever in the UK. Before heading along this path, you will have to be sure that your property is actually suitable for a loft conversion. A number of modern homes that have got trussed roofs are not usually suitable. The ideal homes for loft conversions are normally the slightly older ones, particularly those constructed prior to the 1970's.

To be sure your particular loft space is suitable, you will want to call in a UK loft specialist to look it over. When your builder gives the go-ahead for a conversion ask him for a quote. Bring in a number of builders and get a number of quotations so you have got an overall notion of the probable costs. When you are selecting the perfect tradesman for the work you need to use your instinct and not just opt for the cheaper quotation.

UK loft conversions rarely need planning permission, so it's extremely unlikely that your one will. The local authority planning office is the place to check if you need planning permission.

Despite the fact that having a conversion is the right solution for lots of UK homeowners, it's still a costly undertaking. It's improbable that many people will have that type of cash just lying around, so it may be that they need to re-mortgage their house or take out a loan.

The style and design of your particular dwelling will determine which kind of loft conversion you choose. The various sorts of conversion comprise: hip-to-gable conversions, loft pods, mansard loft conversions, dormer conversions, velux conversions, roof light loft conversions and roof lift conversions. Your loft specialist will tell you which style is most suitable for your house.

You just have to determine what to use all of that extra room for as soon as your loft conversion is complete. You could turn it into an additional bedroom, a new downstairs bathroom or a kitchen/diner.
