Loft conversions have always been a staple of the domestic builder but in the post-pandemic world, with people working from home, the need for either the extra bedroom or home office has seen an increase in demand for this type of project.
As well as providing much-needed additional living space in a home, which can be particularly beneficial for growing families, it can also increase the value of a property. It can make the home more attractive to potential buyers and increase its marketability.
Depending on your property, in many cases, a loft conversion can be done under permitted development rights, which means that planning permission may not be required. This can save time and money compared to other types of home extensions or renovations.
One thing to be aware of with loft conversions is because, in the most part, there will be certain aspects of the roof being taken off your existing home can become exposed to water damage.
This is why we would always look to have a tented scaffold when doing a loft conversion. This allows us to manage the weather, which in the North West of England can be fairly changeable at times. It means we can reduce the risk of potential damage to your property as well as keep the project moving whatever the weather.
