How To Do A Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Surrey
A mansard type loft will give the maximum conversion roof space because of how it projects the maximum available head height, thus giving a greater usable floor area. Why not talk to the team at Loft Conversions Surrey about how to build a loft conversion in your Surrey home.
Ensuring A Safe Working Enviroment For Loft Conversions Surrey To Work In
Don't forget that any new habitable rooms in your loft will need to be ventilated.
Your new floor needs soundproofing, and this is easily achieved by laying a mineral fibre quilt between the joists. If you are worried about noise from your neighbours use the heavier, denser sound insulation quilt and not the lighter thermal insulation material, which is of no help here.
Altering Roof Structures In Surrey
If your loft already has enough space then adding roof lights is a cheap way to convert it into a habitable space. Some options can be expensive as they require the complex removal and rebuild of the existing roof.
Wherever the stairs for your loft are installed, it should be designed in accordance with fire precautions and building regulations in mind. Remember that it is often necessary to insulate party walls — both against heat loss and noise.
