There is a combination of criteria that will help you assess the suitability of your loft conversion. Look out for any similar houses in your area that appear to have undergone a conversion. A minimum height of 2.2m is required, however, you will ideally have a measurement of 2.2m -2.4m for a traditional roof and 2.4 m- 2.6 m for a modern trussed roof. If you do not have the head height, there are ways around the problem but these can be complex and expensive. You will need to consider other features in the loft that could pose an issue, for example, a chimney stack in the loft or an existing water tank system that will be required to be removed and sealed. You have to check your loft for access, either in the form of an open stairway, large window, or skylight. Most lofts do not have easy access and we will install these as part of the loft conversion.
According to recent research undertaken by Nationwide, a loft conversion that adds a double bedroom and a bathroom could add as much as 22% + to the value of a three-bedroom, one-bathroom house. A loft conversion is a fantastic way of increasing the value of your house on the property market. For example, if you currently own a two-bedroom house worth £400,000 and are looking at ways to add value before you can sell a loft conversion can certainly add as much as £100,000 to the value of your property. All in all, we believe loft conversions in Hertfordshire are worth the investment as you are more likely to get a lot more from a loft conversion then what you put in.
Once you know that your loft is suitable for a conversion, you can start looking for ideas on how to properly use your new space. You will also need to allocate a realistic budget for the project to cover everything. Always remember to assign a contingency, as within construction there is always a surprise or two on the way. The overall cost of the loft conversion will depend on the size, complexity, and style of your loft conversion. Most Velux loft conversions start from £25,000 to £40,000, Terraced rear dormer conversions start from £45,000 to £55,000 and a hip-to-gable loft conversion ranges from £50,000 to £60,000. When allocating your budget, keep a check on the average prices for the essentials such as bathroom fixtures, fittings, flooring, painting, etc.
You will not always require planning permission for a Loft Conversion, in many cases, the loft conversion will fall under permitted development rights. The design of your loft has to comply with several specified parameters, the most important of which include:
-The Loft conversion must not exceed the current height of the existing roof under Permitted development rights.
-It must not add more than 40 cubic meters of volume for terraced houses and 50 cubic meters for all other property types.
-The property must not have already utilised its Permitted Development rights to add storey
-Balconies and Verandas with raised platforms are not allowed under Permitted Development, only Juliet Balconies are allowed.
The length of a Loft Conversion project in Hertfordshire depends on the complexity of the design, the type of loft required, and whether any structural reinforcements are needed. On average, a loft conversion project can be completed in between 6 to 10 weeks, with around eight weeks being the average completion time.
Sometimes when clients are considering converting their loft they express concerns about how it will affect their daily routines. However, it's important to understand that this is a misunderstanding. In reality, most loft conversions can be completed within a timeframe of 6 to 7 weeks. During this period the primary focus of the work is within the loft area itself meaning that your use of hallways and bedrooms should remain undisturbed until the new space is ready for decorating.
Adding an extra space on the property is an effective way to create a more living area, and now becoming an increasingly popular alternative in the UK.
