Converting Your Brighton, East Sussex Loft
Loft conversion costs will vary depending on size, whether you'll need to alter its structure for staircase access, the type of conversion you're going for and where you live in the country.
Cost-effective loft conversions are a cheaper way of expanding the size of your home as in comparison to a full extension or moving home completely, the cost of a loft conversion comes in a lot cheaper. As well as offering valuable extra living space, loft conversions provide one of the best returns on investment you can get when it comes to extending, with experts suggesting they add the most value to your home in comparison to the cost. While a loft conversion could cost you upwards of £20,000, doing so could add up to £45,000 to the value of your property.
You Need Planning Permission In Brighton
Planning permission typically covers how the work will look externally and how it affects the property and any neighbouring dwellings. Deciding to convert your loft requires careful consideration of your roof structure, heating and insulation. If you don't need to alter the roofline of your home and can fit loft conversion works inside the existing roof cover then you should be able to do the work under permitted development (unless you are in a conservation area).
Trusses are typically used with thinner timbers and while the prefabrication method results in a faster installation time, they often require additional support during a loft conversion. If your loft doesn't have enough headroom then the roof will need to be raised or in some cases, the floor below lowered.
