Bungalow Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Brighton
Whatever you're planning on gaining from a bungalow loft conversion, you'll often find you've got the space to achieve it. Bungalows, especially those built in the mid-twentieth century, often have steep roof pitches that give a lot of scope for loft conversions, but can also lack the necessary load bearing walls, as the building was not initially designed to have the weight of an extra floor. There are several stages to a bungalow loft conversion, but Loft Conversions Brighton are here to support you at each of them.
Converting Your Bungalow Loft In Brighton
After a loft conversion your roof will have to cope with significantly different loadings so it's always worth working with professionals to make sure your conversion is safe. How much a bungalow loft conversion from Loft Conversions Brighton costs depends on the scale of the job, and also the style of conversion you are looking to add.
Before going too far into planning your loft conversion project, we suggest you carry out a brief survey that checks for any possible issues. When converting your loft you will need to ensure you have mains powered, interlinked smoke detectors in the hall and/or landing areas of every floor.
Building Regulations For Your Brighton, East Sussex Loft Conversion
When you convert the loft of a house and create a third floor, the building regulations require you to look at the fire precautions a lot more seriously. Bungalow conversions vary slightly from typical house loft conversions - because the new space will still only be at a first-floor level, the regulations are less strict, especially when it comes to elements like fire safety.
CO2 emissions are a major concern in today's environment and you will need to provide a high level of insulation to your roof as part of your loft conversion. Roof insulation is an important factor when it comes to the loft conversion of a bungalow.
