Getting your Loft Conversion

How do I start a Loft Conversion?

Converting your loft needn’t be difficult. As one of the most favoured types of home improvement, loft conversions are an ideal way to create extra space inside of your home. But carrying out a loft conversion isn’t a straightforward process, so finding the right people for the job is vital. Thankfully, Bark makes it easy to connect to experts so you can start planning your loft conversion today.

The cost to convert

So how much are loft conversions?

Due to the effort required when converting a loft, the difference in price can be quite large and will vary depending on the options you go for. Before proceeding, you should set a budget and a timescale for your project.

Do I need planning permission for a Loft Conversion?

In the majority of cases, carrying out a loft conversion is fine, as it is recognised as a permitted development. The design of the conversion does need to fit specific parameters, however.

If you want to convert your loft past these parameters (or you have a home located in an area of conservation), you need to make sure to apply for planning permission. This also goes for any instance where you wish to change the height or shape of the roof.

What are the benefits of a Loft Conversion?

There are a few great benefits to converting your loft into a new room.

Out of these benefits, boosting the market value of your home is particularly favourable. In some cases, a loft conversion can add up to 25% to the original value of your home - which is something to consider if you plan on selling your home in the future.

Building an extension outwards can be a great way to create a recreational space such as a conservatory, but can also take up a lot of room. Converting your loft enables you to build upwards rather than outwards, while simultaneously insulating your home.

And of course, having an entirely new room is always a plus. This can become the basis for anything you imagine – maybe you’d like another bedroom, or how about a home gym?

What kind of Loft Conversion should I choose?

There are a variety of options to choose from when deciding on a loft conversion. Of course, the type of loft conversion you opt for will affect how much you can expect to pay and how much time it will take, too.

Hip to Gable

This type of loft conversion is recommended if you own an end of terrace, detached, or semi detached house. It is a type of conversion carried out on roofs that have three slanted sides. Aside from opening up the loft, Hip To Gable conversions allow for the staircase to join seamlessly in the process. They can also be fixed to a dormer loft at the rear side of the roof.

Mansard

Mansard loft conversions take a little more work and effort than the other types of conversion mentioned above. In most cases, Mansard conversions require planning permission because of the complexity of the changes needed. However, all of the work put into a Mansard conversion, the results are the most aesthetically appealing - creating an abundance of space, light and headroom.

Shell

Shell conversions are most useful for those on a set budget, or homeowners that want to be involved in the construction process. Shell conversions are unique in that they enable you to add their own finishing touches to the design. It is a heavily structural work that enables great collaboration with the tradespeople involved.

Dormer

The most popular type of loft conversion, dormer conversions are an extension of an existing roof. While they are straightforward, a dormer loft conversion is an efficient use of space and can quite easily become the biggest room in your house once finished. They are quite versatile and can be constructed on a variety of structures and in varying configurations.

How can someone tell if their loft is suitable for conversion?

Converting your loft into liveable space is typically much more cost effective than building an extension, with prices starting from just £15,000 for a basic loft conversion. However, this depends on how complex the design is. A loft conversion can be as simple as a room in the roof, or it can involve adding dormer windows or even altering the roof. The more sophisticated the design is, the higher the cost will be.

According to research carried out by Nationwide Building Society, converting your loft can increase the value of your home by up to 20%. With the average price of a house in the UK currently standing at £235,000, a loft conversion could increase your home’s value by up to £47,000. Of course, this depends on the design of your loft conversion and the amount of extra space that you’re adding to your property.

Most loft conversions will take around 10 weeks to complete. However, this is dependent on the design of your loft conversion. How long it takes to convert your loft will depend on the type of loft conversion being done, the materials used, whether plumbing is required, the type of staircase being installed and how many windows are being added.
