We had our toilet and bathroom knocked into one large bathroom. The result exceeded our expectations. The workmanship was of a high standard and the advice and ideas given were much appreciated. It was good to have the flexibility and convenience of a local builder. We would high recommend Toro Renovations. More...

Q&As

The features that will decide the suitability of the roof space for a loft conversion are the available head height, the pitch and the type of structure, as well as any obstacles such as water tanks or chimney stacks. An inspection of the roof space will reveal its structure and physical dimensions.

Head Height

Take a measurement from the bottom of the ridge timber to the top of the ceiling joist; the useable part of the roof should be greater than 2.2m.

Pitch Angle

The higher the pitch angle, the higher the central head height is likely to be, and if dormers are used or the roof is redesigned, then the floor area can be increased.

Type of Roof Structure

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. It is advisable to seek advice from specialist firms in this instance.

We have more than 10 years experience working within the building trade, but Toro Renovations was set up in January 2016 to fulfil criteria that the Managing Director felt was lacking from other companies. Proper transparent and trustworthy business model, client communications and relations being just a couple of these.
Toro Renovations Ltd is a new company with a fresh, modern approach to home renovation and focus mainly on the clients wants, needs and desires over making a quick buck.

Turning people's vision in to reality and working with them along the journey from start to finish.

Seeing other developers and builders who have become desensitised to their clients needs and desires. Also to have more control over the type of projects we would take on.

Our approach is highly management lead, meaning clients receive the best levels of care, whilst benefitting from a high quality final product.
