Does your home have a loft? If so, have you thought about your use of it? Is it just a store room for temporarily or even permanently used ‘junk’?
The loft is often our home’s largest area but we rarely give that a thought, so a loft conversion could enhance both our living space and the value of our home!
Some lofts are not convertible, although most are. If you are considering a loft conversion, Parkview will advise and discuss the various external styles, depending on roof shape as well as the internal design.
This type of conversion is commonly found in Central London areas, where clients are obliged to follow the mansard trend of similar conversions, as it is often required by the local planning authority in these areas
This option is where the existing loft space is of insufficient size for the proposed conversion. It creates additional headroom for the staircase and new room(s)
This option is generally adequate for those contemplating the smaller loft conversion, generally for a single bedroom, study, etc, where adequate height is available within the existing loft space. Rooflights/VeluxTM can be installed with minimum disruption, as the shape of the existing roof does not need to be altered
Parkview carries out loft conversions by following one of the two procedures below:
- We can provide a full design and build service, from drawing the initial plans using experienced architects and structural engineers to handling the planning application and building regulations application, and then carrying out the build stage from this point
- We often find that the client already has the plans drawn up and planning permission has been granted. Parkview will then take over the project for the build stage and furthermore, is able to commence works at short notice due to the depth of resources of the company
