Loft & Garage Conversions
Converting the loft or garage (or loft and garage!) in your existing home is proving to be a really sensible option for a lot of homeowners. If you like where you live and can’t face the upheaval of moving (it is reported that research has shown that the stress of moving house is on a par with that of getting divorced) but simply need more living space, converting the space you already have is a really viable option.
Loft and garage conversions can increase the value of your home by up to 10-15% and can provide extra space which could transform your family life. Perhaps an extra bedroom with en-suite, a games room or den for the children or a home office would make all the difference.
There are some things to consider, for example what to do with the bits and bobs already in the loft or the garage, the additional pressure on existing central heating and plumbing systems, light, heat and ventilation requirements but these are all things that we can help with. Our team covers all the trades you will need so your project is safe in our hands.
Conversions are covered by Building Regulations, but we take care of this on behalf of our clients. If you’d like more information, we have written an article about Rules and Regulations which you can read here. Alternatively, the government’s planning portal https://www.planningportal.co.uk is a good place to look.
