Create an additional room in your home for a fraction of the cost with a part loft conversion
Posted on 12th August 2020 at 11:41
A part loft conversion is classed as a ‘deluxe storage area’ that is accessed via a high quality retractable access ladder, usually a timber access ladder with flat, wide treads for everyday comfort. These ladders always come with an enlarged structural opening in the ceiling and are also available fully automated by remote, wall switch or smart phone.
These deluxe storage areas would normally have a few Velux opening roof windows for both natural light and ventilation to the loft, we always upgrade the thermal fibre insulation to the floor of the loft to prevent heat escaping from the habitable floors below, we also insulate the roof slopes to help with heat escaping from the loft space in the winter months and heat entering the loft though our summer months.
We would create clean usable storage cupboards under the eaves of the loft space so you don’t lose out on these valuable storage areas whilst leaving the main usable loft space totally clear.
The deluxe storage spaces come with low energy LED lighting and flush fitting power sockets fully installed by our qualified electricians. Once the loft space is plaster boarded our specialist plasterers will render any brickwork for example part walls, gable walls and chimney breasts followed by a final plaster skim.
The part loft conversion itself looks very similar to a full loft conversion at face value but comes at a fraction of the cost due to eliminating the need for any architectural design fees, structural calculation fees, building regulation fees and much more.
A part loft conversion is classed as a non-habitable room within the property. It holds many uses, for example:
• Home Office
• Cinema Room
• Children's Playroom
• Hobby Room
