Legacy Restoration ltd Q&A
How can someone tell if their Garage is suitable for conversion?
Need to check the foundations. Make sure that it is capable of taking the extra load if you are going up as well. Don't assume that just because it is attached to the building that the foundations are adequate.
Run us through the different stages of the Garage conversion process - what's involved?
Plans. Get plans together of what it is you want the room to be used for.
Change of usage. This is why you need the plans. When you approach the council for planning permission, you will need to have what you using it for and what it will look like when completed. If large conversion, it would help to have an architect involved as they can also help with the planning permissions. Remember none of these are free, so not as easy to acquire as you might think and it all takes time, so be prepared for a bit of a wait.
Then when everything is in place, you put you job out to tender for builders to quote on the works.
How can someone tell if their loft is suitable for conversion?
Two main structures are used for roof construction — namely traditional framed type and truss section type. The traditional framed type is typically found in pre-1960s houses where the rafters and ceiling joists, together with supporting timbers, are cut to size on site and assembled. This type of structure has more structural input, so is often the most suitable type for attic conversions. The space can be easily, and relatively inexpensively, opened up by strengthening the rafters and adding supports as specified by a structural engineer.
Post 1960s, the most popular form of construction used factory-made roof trusses. These utilise thinner – and therefore cheaper timbers – but have structural integrity by the addition of braced diagonal timbers. They allow a house roof to be erected and felted in a day. However, this type of truss suggests that there are no loadbearing structures beneath, and so opening up the space requires a greater added structural input.
This will normally involve the insertion of steel beams between loadbearing walls for the new floor joists to hang on and the rafter section to be supported on — together with a steel beam at the ridge. This added structural input requires skill, knowledge and equipment that would limit scope as far as DIY is concerned — and a far greater cash outlay.
Run us through the different stages in the loft conversion process - what’s involved?
Works will commence with the erection of independent scaffolding.
First delivery of materials – ie structural steels, joisting timbers etc.
An opening is made in the roof for access – initial works are completed externally, so minimising internal disturbance (approx 3/4 weeks)
Floor joisting carried out – following which the local authority Building Inspector will visit to approve floor construction.
If a dormer conversion, the dormer will next be constructed, insulation installed, followed by a further inspection by the Building Inspector.
Completion of external works – ie roofing of dormer, lead work, fascias, soffits, guttering.
Internally, erecting studwork walls, forming bedrooms/ensuite/stairwell access. Insulating walls to required standard.
Fitting dormer windows/Velux windows.
Creating access to facilitate installation of new staircase and fitting new stairs.
Installing new cabling for lighting, sockets, Expelair, smoke alarms etc.
First fix plumbing to new ensuite and additional radiator(s).
Plastering all new areas.
Second fix carpentry works – ie skirtings, architraves, doors, handrail, spindles etc.
Second fix works for electrics (upvc fittings installed) and plumbing (sanitary ware, radiators etc).
Clearing down – including guttering inspection.
Final inspection by Building Inspector who issues Completion Certificate (all works having complied with building and fire regulations).
The new loft is now ready for decoration and habitation.
How long have you been in business?
With Legacy Restoration ltd 3 Years.
As builders 18yrs Respectively as there are four brothers involved. As well as our close nit team, some of whom have been in the trade for over 40 years.
What guarantee does your work come with?
We offer standard guarantees on workmanship and all are passed by building control.
However we do not just walk away from our clients.
Currently we still hold keys for every property we have ever done, well almost all. As we still do all the maintenance on these properties.
We are there for as long as you want us.
What do you love most about your job?
Every thing. We love to work. love the fact that we are there to make peoples dreams come true.
And its so great meeting new people and trying to come up with new ideas for people, some times things they never thought they could do or just couldn't see.
What inspired you to start your own business?
Got fed up with people saying they were being ripped off. We thought we could maybe put a stop to it, by offering a service people could trust in. Its hard work sometimes, as more often than we would like people still think that a low price means value for money.
Why should our clients choose you?
We aren't out to be millionaires, we just want to work and make dreams become reality. If you are happy so are we.
I know that sounds cliché, but its true. Meet us and find out. If your not happy you can always get someone else. Its always up to you. Your money.
