Basildon Loft Conversion

Overview

Below are images of a Basildon loft conversion.  Loft conversions are a clever and fantastic way to enhance the value of your home without the need to move out. They convert unused space into a brand new room such as a bathroom, office or bedrooms. The type of loft conversion that can be done depends on the home you live in.  Below is a loft conversion we carried out on a 3 bedroom detached bungalow.  We managed to install 3 large bedrooms, en-suite, main bathroom and walk in wardrobe upstairs!  If you want to view this hip to gable loft conversion from start to finish, click here.

Types of Basildon Loft Conversion

In the UK there are four main types of loft conversion such as:

Velux

Dormer

Hip to Gable

Mansard

The type of loft conversion that is suitable for your property will depend upon its shape, condition and structure of the existing roof, budget and permitted development rights.

Advantages of Loft Conversions?

  • A loft conversion can add a significant amount of money to your property.
  • Converting your loft allows you to increase your living space, without the need to extend into your garden.
  • You will be amazed how much extra space a loft conversion can provide.
  • Architects can draw up clever space saving plans, so you can use your space efficiently.

Building Regulations

Building regulations ensure your new loft conversion is strong and stable enough to support an additional floor.  The new structure must also adhere to fire safety rules to ensure people inside can escape in the event of a fire.  Sound and thermal insulation of the loft conversion walls and ceilings are also taken into account.

Planning Permission

Below are some typical planning permission rules.  In reality there are many more which may or may not apply to your property.

Loft Conversion Room Height

Once your loft has been converted, there must be enough room height for people to walk about.  Typically your existing loft would need to measure about 2500mm from the top of the ceiling joist to underneath the ridge board in the apex to suitably convert.

Roof Pitch

The higher the pitch angle of your existing roof, the higher the central head height is likely to be.  Making it more ideal for a loft conversion.

Footprint

Is the loft large enough to convert into useable and practical space.
