Leatherhead Loft Conversion
Having a loft conversion in your Leatherhead home could be a great way to create extra living space in your house. However, not all Leatherhead properties will be suitable for a loft conversion, so it’s important to find out whether yours is, or whether the amount of work needed would make the cost and inconvenience prohibitive. Here are some factors a professional Leatherhead loft conversion company will consider when advising you on how a loft conversion might work for you:
Type of structure
There are different kinds of roof structures commonly used in UK homes, and some of these lend themselves more easily to a Leatherhead loft conversion than others. Generally, pre-1960s roofs are more suitable for conversion, and more recent homes may require more structural work to make the roof space ready for a loft conversion.
Roof pitch and head height
Generally, there needs to be a useable area with a head height of 2.2 metres for a successful Leatherhead loft conversion. If the pitch angle is high, this normally makes for a
higher head height, and dormers can be added to increase the floor area in your loft conversion. It’s often possible to raise your roof to allow for a Leatherhead loft conversion, but obviously this will increase the cost of the project.
Some roof spaces house things like water tanks or chimney stacks, and these can be obstacles to a straightforward Leatherhead loft conversion. That doesn’t mean you can’t convert your loft – there may just be more work involved.
