Top Loft Conversion related questions
Yes. News reports in countries like the UK and Australia both state that a loft conversion can increase a home’s value by at least 20 per cent. So if you plan to make that loft conversion, make sure it’s a conversion that increases your home’s living space. A good idea is to convert your attic space into a spare bedroom, lounge or music room.
Yes, but only if it’s a small loft conversion that’s simple and doesn’t require roof or attic alterations. If it involves simply clearing out the attic and putting in some furniture, then go ahead. But if your loft conversion involves remodelling the roof and adding a dormer, you risk hefty fines if your work isn’t up to code. You’d best secure the permits and hire a specialist on Airtasker to do the job for you instead.
One type of stairs you can use is a spiral staircase; these are fixed stairs that comply with building codes, save a lot of space, and are usually made of durable metal (so they’re also cost-efficient). You can also try alternate-step stairs, which can add a unique character to your loft conversion. This is just one of the many stair options on the market, so consult your Tasker on all the possible stair designs.
Only if your loft conversion doesn’t reach the minimum height of 2.2 metres in at least two-thirds of the total space. The floor of your loft conversion should also have a load-bearing capacity of at least 150 kilograms per square metre to meet building codes and safety standards. Consult a loft conversion architect to know whether your loft conversion needs a dormer and if your home can accommodate it if necessary.
In cases where you need to do some alterations on your roof, yes, you will need a permit from your local council. But if your loft conversion is in a space that is at least 2.2 metres high in two-thirds of the total floor area and you don’t intend to do any renovations, then you won’t need a permit. To be safe, check with your local council before starting on your loft conversion.
The easy answer would be to install a dormer. If this isn’t possible, you can try other ways to increase headroom, like using thinner insulation layers. Should you choose this option, check with your local regulations as they may require a minimum thickness for your insulation. If you hired a loft conversion architect, they could suggest alternatives for a higher headroom.
What do loft conversion services include?
Loft conversion services include all the tasks necessary to convert an attic space and make it a more functional part of your home. The loft conversion can turn your extra unused attic space into a spare bedroom, lounge area, music room, home office, kids’ playroom or even a home gym if possible.
Planning & inspecting the site
Your loft conversion architect can ask what you want to do with your attic space and draw up a loft conversion design that meets your needs and fits your budget. They can take all the necessary measurements, ensure that the floor can take the weight of the conversion, then present their ideas and designs for your loft conversion.
Your Tasker can also find contractors and other designers if they’re appropriate for the job. After making plans, some Taskers can present these to your town council and get the necessary permits upon request.
Your Tasker can have any old structures taken down and removed if necessary. If demolishing old insulation, rafters, floor joists, floor panels, and other structures are required, they can hire a team to do it. Should your loft room conversion involve installing a dormer, they can have portions of the roof removed to accommodate the new structure.
Clearing the loft space
Depending on the size of the space and the amount of debris to clear, your Tasker can have your loft space cleaned up and cleared by a team before proceeding with the loft conversion plans.
They can have any rubbish that remains after demolishing old rafters, floor panels, joists or other structures. You may hire a separate service to rid the space of any pests that have taken up residence in the area if necessary.
Reinforcing and adding structures
Your Tasker can have new joists and rafters installed or have existing ones reinforced with the appropriate tools and equipment. If your design calls for a dormer, they can have the loft conversion builders install it using all the necessary tools and the proper techniques. Your Tasker can also have any wall panels, floorboards or other structures installed as needed.
Installing insulation, plumbing and wiring
Once the dormer and any new joists and frames are in place, your Tasker can have the insulation placed and sealed within the walls. Should your loft conversion require new plumbing or electrical wiring, they can also have plumbers and electricians install them.
After the dormer is in place along with the insulation, new joists, walls and floor panels, your Tasker can have other finishing touches installed. They can have a new staircase installed or have an existing one refurbished and reinforced.
