How To Do A Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Wandsworth
The easiest way to gain an idea of whether your loft can be converted is to see whether any similar houses on your street have had loft conversions. Why not talk to the team at Loft Conversions Wandsworth about how to build a loft conversion.
Ensuring A Safe Working Enviroment For Loft Conversions Wandsworth To Work In
There is no doubt what so ever that you will need to gain building regulation approval for your conversion.
To help reduce unwanted noise, the walls and floor around any new bedrooms will need to be insulated to reduce sound transmission. In a Loft Conversions Wandsworth conversion, the internal partition walls use a 100mm quilt that will provide sound insulation.
Altering Roof Structures In Wandsworth
If you happen to live in a conservation area, or if your roof space isn't tall enough, getting planning permission may be more complicated. Unless your roof has a breathable felt you will need to leave a void above the installed insulation and ensure that you have effective roof ventilation to prevent the build-up of condensation in your home.
The new floor in your home will need at least 30 minutes of fire-protection, which could mean re-plastering the ceilings below it and the loft room will have to be separated by a fire door, either at the top or bottom of the new stairs. As part of the fire safety upgrade for your loft conversion your stairways should lead to a hall and an external door.
