The ultimate guide to converting your loft

loft conversion

Do you have a space that could be converted to living area? An attic or loft above your garage?

Having a loft brings the added possibility of turning into an extra room of your home, but some people choose to jump straight in with laying flooring and beginning to decorate, which in turn could lead to problems in the future. This is an ultimate guide on how to convert your loft so that it won’t cost you anything extra than necessary.

Structural Checks

In some cases, you may need to seek planning permission before even thinking about starting anything to do with your loft conversion. This is because sometimes, adding another room in your loft can affect the structural integrity of the building. Check out the rules and regulations for your area to see if you may need one.

Once you have gained planning permission, you should seek out making the floor that you will be walking on able to withstand the weight that you will be putting up there. Adding extra support beams and strong floorboard should be the route that you’re going down. Most homes with attics above the garage are not reinforced enough to make in to a liveable space with furniture.
