Depending on the roof structure and planning constraints, a loft conversion is one of the most straightforward ways of getting extra space. Almost all houses can benefit from this extension with a bit of basic planning.

Is My Loft Suitable for Conversion?

Loft Conversion Assessment
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.

Most properties can be adapted to create a living space within your loft area, get in touch with us for a free onsite survey.
