Why are more People Converting their Lofts?

You may have noticed many of your neighbours having building work done of late, and we’re betting that a lot of that has been done up top! More and more people are converting their lofts rather than moving. Fast becoming one of the most popular house renovation and extension projects, there are plenty of reasons to love your loft conversion, Leyton residents!

1. It’s Cheaper than Moving!

Probably the biggest reason for converting your loft is the fact that it’s a great way to gain a large amount of extra space without moving. You’ll likely gain at least two extra rooms, such as a master bedroom and en suite, or two smaller bedrooms.

It will be a lot cheaper to gain habitable square footage by converting your loft than it will to move, once you’ve added up moving expenses, solicitor expenses and the cost of a larger home.

2. You won’t Lose Garden Space

Unlike a traditional house extension, you won’t lose any garden space with a loft conversion. If you only have a small outdoor space around your house to start with, then a loft conversion won’t eat into it and will still allow your home to have a garden which isn’t encroached upon.

3. They are Quick to Complete

In terms of building work, loft conversions are relatively easy and quick to complete. It depends on the complexity of your conversion and your home of course, but normally they take between two and four months to complete when using a specialist loft conversion company.

4. Planning Permission is Often not Required

In many cases, a simple loft conversion will not need planning permission. There are exceptions to this, of course, and certain aspects of a loft conversion, such as a dormer window, may well require planning permission, but if your neighbours already have loft conversions with these features in place, it should, in theory, be easier for you to obtain planning permission.

If you’re not sure whether your proposed loft conversion will require planning permission, your loft conversion company will be able to help you with the process.

5. The Options are Endless

And this is one of the biggest reasons as to why so many people are converting their lofts at the moment: the possibilities for newly converted loft extension rooms are endless! Bedrooms, bathrooms, home offices, home gyms, studios, children’s playrooms, dressing rooms…you name it, and your loft conversion can accommodate it!
