Average Price Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Surrey
Are you thinking of converting your loft in Surrey? Adding a loft conversion is a win-win – provided, that is, you get the renovation right from the start.
Converting Your Surrey, United Kingdom Loft
When you convert a loft that already has an acceptable headroom, the height of the finished conversion will not be higher than the original roof.
Extensions normally increase the heat load requirement of the house and so the boiler has to be upgraded, but a loft conversion may require little extra capacity as the space will be well insulated and can improve the overall energy efficiency of the house. Adding a loft conversion with a bathroom and a double bedroom typically adds around 20% to the value of a three-bed, one-bathroom property. While a loft conversion could cost you upwards of £20,000, doing so could add up to £45,000 to the value of your property.
You Need Planning Permission In Surrey
For more complex loft conversions, you will almost certainly need planning permission and a customised price but Loft Conversions Surrey can advise you further on this. Unless you live in a protected area, you probably won't need planning permission for your loft conversion if the total area of the additional space doesn't exceed 50 cubic metres and doesn't extend higher than the current highest point of the roof. Most loft conversions can be done under permitted development rights, which allow the improvement and extension of homes, under certain restrictions.
If your conversion does need planning permission, get your application in early to avoid delaying work. If your loft doesn't have enough headroom then the roof will need to be raised or in some cases, the floor below lowered.
