A typical Loft Conversion will consist of installation of a new structural floor and roof supports allowing you to open up and utilise the whole loft area as a new habitable room or rooms. These can be timber or steel or a combination of both dependent on the exact requirements of your property. When done properly, a loft conversion will inevitable increase the value of your house considerably.
There are additional benefits to converting your loft or attic space into a fully functional room. Using the dead space above allows you to quickly extend even if you don't have a garden, its also much cheaper than moving house.
"A loft conversion is the most lucrative alteration homeowners can make. Converting 300 square feet of loft space into an en suite bedroom can add more than 20 per cent to the value of an average property." - The Guardian.
A loft conversion for your house is considered to be permitted development, not requiring an application for planning permission. However, permission is required where you extend or alter the roof space and it exceeds specified limits and conditions. Conversions really are a specialist job, and the specialists do not come any better than Yarwood Construction.
