    How do I know my loft is suitable for conversion

    Before you decide to embark on a loft conversion, it is essential to first establish whether your property is viable for one. Some of the things that will determine whether you can have an attic extension include the type of existing roof, the ceiling height available(it should be a minimum of 2.2m), and the type of property among other things.

    With the right loft conversions specialists in the NW2 or NW10 areas, knowing the right loft conversion roof types to choose from will be easier. Whether you want an extra bedroom, home office, or even a movie room, your needs will dictate the most suitable design for you.

    How to strengthen the loft floor for conversion

    Before embarking on any of the attic conversion activities, it’s essential to ensure that the floor joists are stable and strong enough to support any other weight(both dead weight and imposed load). To ensure that the joists are stable and strong enough, you can sister them by using glue and screws to hold them in place.

    How to fit stairs for a loft conversion

    Whenever you’re having a loft conversion in your Brent Cross or Brent Park property, the stairs are among the first things that are completed. It is advisable to ensure that your staircase is not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional and built in accordance with the building control requirements. You should ensure that your loft staircase provides safe access to and from the room.

    The amount of headspace you have is also essential as the minimum requirement is at 1.9m. Not forgetting the use of handrails, the steepness of the staircase, and the need for equal risers. You should be able to work closely with your loft conversion architect to come up with the ideal design that suits both your style and preferences.
