Diy Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions London
If you're after extra space in your home then, depending on your roof structure, a loft conversion could be the project for you. It isn't a straightforward project but you can find out what would be involved in DIY loft conversions. Extensions normally increase the heat load requirement of a house and so the boiler has to be upgraded, but a loft conversion may require little extra capacity as the space will be well insulated and can actually improve the overall energy efficiency of the house.
Loft Conversions London Will Need To Ensure Saftey During Work Carried Out
For each designed load you intend to place on an existing floor, a calculation will need to be made to prove that the floor is capable of withstanding it.
Purpose-built staircases can be around 10 times the cost of standard (off-the-shelf) designs, so bear this in mind when planning your loft conversion. Existing doors on the stairway (ground and first floor) should be replaced with fire-resistant doors or upgraded and this should be indicated on your loft conversion drawings for building control.
