Loft Conversions London
If you think about loft conversion in London Artdom Construction Ltd is a must. Our professional skills and experience will guarantee that the work is done efficiently and speedily causing the minimal inconvenience and disruption. We are sure we are one of the best loft conversion company in London. Local authority building inspectors are always visiting our conversions at different stages of work to ensure that we’re doing what we should. Badly converted loft can end up costing you more. You can avoid it by employing fully qualified polish builders/loft converters to take on the project.
Every type of conversion from basic storage loft to luxury bedroom, office or living room requires time and planning. We can guide you through the whole process minimizing the likelihood of costly and dangerous mistakes. Before you take on such a big project we have to make initial survey evaluating strength of flooring and ceiling plus measure the headroom.
New Building regulations require that the minimum loft height should be 1.8m at the edge of the stair with 1.9m at the centre line if the ceiling is sloping.
The next thing is to discuss the practicality and design of the loft conversion.
We do two most popular types of conversion: a roof light (Velux) conversion, which uses the space already available and dormer conversion, which includes a roof extension.
Quotation depends on the scale of the project and location but we are offering special discounts on purchasing materials through us. A simple loft conversion for a 3 bedroom house in London area starts from £ 35,000.
Our qualified architect can advise you whether you need planning permission, especially: if you live in a conservation area or listed building; the loft conversion changes the outside appearance of the property or the size of conversion exceeds 50 cubic meters (check your local Council’s website for more info).
If that is the case we will take care of all the paperwork for you – dealing with the council and building regulations. You should receive decision from the Planning Department in 8 weeks time and from Building Control Department (Building Fire regulations) within 6 weeks. Normally the whole approval process takes three to four months.
If you live in terraced or semi-detached property you will need The Party Wall agreement. Your neighbour will need 2 months notice before work commences on the dividing wall.
Obtaining all relevant certificates from your local authority and us is vital when it comes to selling your property.
Loft Conversion may take from one to six months, but properly done can bring a 20% return on your investment.
At the next step, our builders will erect scaffolding and bring in all materials through the roof to minimise the disruption to your life. For the first half of the project our builders are going to gain access via the roof. We will be fitting Velux windows early on along with other structural works. Half way through the conversion internal work will begin such as constructing interior walls. Than we break into the rest of the house to install the fixed staircase. All the electrical, plumbing work, along with insulating, plastering will be done and ready for decoration.
One of the key areas we pay attention to is upgrading the fire resistance of existing ceilings and doors.
The New Building Regulations require also high levels of thermal insulation. Decorating and final fittings finalizes the whole project.
