The Facts About Clayhall Loft Conversions

As the needs of families and homeowners grow so too does the need for additional space. Moving is not always an option, it’s expensive and time consuming and extending out may not be either. When this is the case more and more homeowners opt for a loft conversion. Clayhall homes can be completely transformed, breathing new life into the house, providing a versatile new space and adding value to the property too.

Any renovation work within the home is done so with some amount of disruption but you may be surprised at how smooth the process can be when having a loft conversion. Clayhall homeowners often comment upon the fact that the work is confined to the roof area so there is much less disruption than during, for example, a home extension.

Regulations that came into force in 2008 stated that a loft conversion is a permitted development within a home and it might not require planning permission. Clayhall loft conversions can be completed without planning permission if they fall within the following conditions:

  • A volume of 40 cubic metres for terraced houses or 50 cubic metres for semi-detached or detached houses
  • The extension does not exceed the current roof slope that fronts a highway
  • The extension doesn’t reach higher than the highest part of the roof
  • Materials match the original of the house
  • No verandas, platforms or balconies are planned
  • Side facing windows are obscure glazed
  • Roof extensions, aside from hip to gable extensions, are set back at least 20cm from the eaves

It is worth noting that a loft conversion cannot be made on conservation areas or World Heritage Sites
