Bungalow Loft Conversion Cost by Loft Conversions Harrow
Bungalows 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. Generally, the options for converting the loft in a bungalow are the same as in a two-storey home - adding a loft room, a dormer loft conversion, a hip to gable loft conversion or a mansard roof conversion. Adding a loft conversion to your property is a win-win – provided, that is, you get the renovation right from the start.

It depends a lot on the size of your project and for what kind of purposes you are planning the loft conversion, but costs can vary greatly so always get a clear quote upfront.
Six to eight weeks is the average length of time for a bungalow loft conversion, but it is worth bearing in mind that the planning stage can also take a considerable amount of time also.
Types Of Insulation Avalible In Harrow
Converting the loft of a semi-detached or terraced property? You will need to ensure that the sound resistance of the party wall is upgraded so that sound transmission to your neighbours is reduced. Sheet or board insulation is ideal for loft conversions and covering the sloping sides of roofs, this type of insulation is easy to disguise by covering with plasterboard, leaving a neat finish.
Most bungalow loft conversions in Harrow will not require planning permission from the local council as they are considered permitted developments. You probably won't need planning permission for your conversion if the total area of the additional space doesn't exceed 50 cubic metres or extend higher than the current highest point of the roof. Permitted Development rights are removed for loft conversions exceeding the given space allowance so you'll always need full planning consent here.
