Services such as loft building, Mansford loft conversion, loft conversions, and insulating lofts are essential for commercial and residential property owners.

What Are The Benefits of Loft Conversions and Extensions?

If you are still determining whether loft conversion cost is worth investing in, before speaking to a loft conversion company, extension builders and home extension specialists like Constructum Code LTD, consider the following benefits of loft conversions.

Increase Usable Living Space

The most obvious and best reason for investing in a loft conversion is that you can easily add more usable and practical living space to your property. It doesn't matter whether you are doing it because your family is growing or because you need a space to work from home; loft conversion is one of the easiest ways to combat the lack of space you may have without buying a new home.

If you have ever looked into a conservatory or other building extensions, you will be familiar with the fact that these require a lot of planning and time. Loft conversions are different in that regard because, as well as not requiring the usual planning permission you do for other extensions, because we are working within the existing structure of your property, we can complete the work far quicker.

Enhanced and New View

Many people live in very built-up areas nowadays, so it's often the case that the views we have from our properties are one of concrete and other houses. This means whenever you look out of your window, you are not met with rolling countryside or a view across the sea, but a neighbour's garden or, even worse, a shop or another commercial property.

Thanks, then, to the fact that windows in a loft conversion can be significant, depending on the overall size of your roof, and that they look out above other properties, you can have a clearer view of the landscape beyond the concrete jungle. This may also increase the value of your property but will certainly improve your enjoyment of living in it.

Improves the Energy Efficiency
of Your Property

Though it may not seem like it, a loft conversion can considerably impact how energy efficient your property is. If the loft in your property has large windows, it will benefit from more significant volumes of natural light and heat than other parts of your home. The reasons for this? The light is not blocked in the same way it is in different rooms by external influences. On even the gloomiest British days, the new loft conversion will be brighter than other rooms on your property.

As you will need to invest in an insulating loft service, warm air will rise from the floors of your property beneath the loft, providing more heat during the coldest parts of autumn and winter while also stopping the escape of warm air from your property.

In the hottest parts of the year, the insulation works reversely, stopping the hot air from outside from filtering through your house and loft conversion. This means it will stay relatively calm or as relaxed as you want.

Increase Property Value

In addition to increasing the amount of usable and practical living space you have, a high-quality loft conversion can dramatically increase the value of your property. While you may have yet to have any intention of selling shortly, many experts suggest a loft conversion can increase the value of your property by around 20%.

What makes loft conversions so attractive to buyers. Think about it – the housing market is incredibly competitive, and with so many properties, most buyers are looking for things that make individual homes and buildings stand out. They are interested in additional features, just like loft conversions.

building planning permission

Planning Permission is
Rarely Required

Following nicely from the above, another huge benefit we have already touched upon relates to planning permission. In the UK, as is the case elsewhere in the world, when you want to build an extension on your property, whether it's your home or business premises, you must apply for planning permission. You may need to seek out the consent of your neighbours.

With loft conversions, this is different. Planning permission is only required when a loft conversion dramatically changes your property's appearance or you are working on an official conservation area or a listed building.

One of the significant issues about seeking out planning permission is the costs attached to the process. Given that often loft conversions are denied planning permission, you may end up paying the feed only to have your project canned.
