Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Harrow
A loft conversion can add a significant amount of money to the overall value of a property. When converting the loft of a bungalow you need to ensure you have mains powered interlinked smoke detection at ground and first floor level and that all habitable rooms at first floor level have an escape window.
The Various Types Of Loft Conversions In Harrow
Another type of loft conversion we offer is converting non-residential spaces (most commonly warehouses, docks, former factories or water towers) into habitable homes.
There may be scope for one or two extra bedrooms possibly even with a bathroom or home office depending on how much space you have. Popular, but less traditional, uses for a loft conversion include a teenage den, cinema room or home office.
Building Regulations In Harrow, Greater London
Loft conversions will always need approval under building regulations (irrespective of whether they need planning permission) so it pays to adopt the full plans application approach and have a detailed scheme approved before you approach a builder. The building regulations requirements for fire precautions in two storey housing are quite simple, it's only when you have more storeys that things can get complex.
Did you know that you can extend your roof space by up to 50m3 (or 40 m3 for terraced housing) under permitted development rights.
