Is your loft a cold, dark and dirty space that is used for storing the Christmas decorations? Have you thought about converting your loft into a warm, light spacious bedroom? If so, know that it would serve to be a true investment; and would inevitably increase the value of your home.
Your budget cost for this kind of project can range from £25,000 to £45,000; it completely depends on the complexity of your roof structure. One of the projects featured in the photographs above included an en-suite, and all-together cost around £27,000 (2010). Beneficially, most Loft Conversions fall within Permitted Development – through this you won’t have to go through the process of attaining planning approval. Despite this, you will need a structural engineer to calculate both steel or timber sizes and you will also need building regulations to ensure the project is built to the current standards and code. Don’t be misguided into believing that you have to approach the local authority for building regulations; as there are private companies that come under the approved inspector scheme. In our case, we work with a company called Campagna http://www.campagna.co.uk/, but you can also choose other companies like http://www.salusai.co.uk/ http://www.jhai.co.uk or http://www.approvedinspectorsltd.co.uk who we have also worked with over the years. As well as this; we have terrific relationships with structural engineers across the Wirral. If preferred, we can manage all of this for you. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have an interest in transforming your loft into an area that’s comfortably spacious for you and your family!
