Basic Loft Conversion

Your loft has lain unused for years but now that your children are growing up you would like to convert it into a bedroom so that one of them can move up there. Loft conversion isn’t very hard, but it isn’t very easy either. The secret to success lies in choosing the right design as well as selecting your conversion contractor carefully. Basic loft conversion begins with bringing in a qualified  builder to look at the area that you plan to convert so that they can tell you what is and isn’t possible.
Choosing the right contractor is very important. There are many homeowners who have trusted builders who claim to be good at loft conversion only to regret it. The best thing to do is look at some of the work that the builder has done in the past and also talk to some of his clients. You should find out whether they were easy to work with, whether they stuck to design specifications and whether they completed the project on time.
Since you are converting your loft into a living area it is important to make sure that it is properly insulated – this is usually the most expensive part of any loft conversion. Find out the kind of material that the builder plans to use and read up on it to see whether it is of high quality. If you plan to add a bathroom to the loft you ought to think about the current plumbing system and whether it can easily accommodate an additional bathroom. The builder should have qualified electricians to light up the loft once the construction work is done.
