Add value to your home with a loft conversion
Whilst a loft conversion does require an upfront cost, the value it will bring to your house will repay you well. A loft conversion can add a great deal of money to your home, usually around the same amount that you spent on the conversion itself. When it comes to selling your home, a loft conversion is an attractive prospect. It adds more living space and a better style of living, especially for families. It is well worth the investment if you wish to sell in the future.
How much will my loft conversion cost?
A loft conversion will vary because there are a couple of types available to you, depending on your budget and your loft conversion size. The standard prices are as follows:
- Standard Velux loft conversion: Anything from £15,000 to £20,000
- Dormer loft conversion: Anything from £30,000 to £60,000
- Mansard loft conversion: Anything from 40,000- £70,000
Again these prices vary depending on the interior of the space, and the materials used. A mansard loft conversion, for example, alters the shape of the roof entirely therefore it will cost more. It also depends on the labour involved. These will include, project management, scaffolding, internal preparation, alterations, steelwork, roof coverings, electrics, plumbing, interior design, and joinery. This includes the need for loft conversion stairs.
All these add up. In addition to these upfront costs for the work, you must also consider the fees associated with the building. You will need planning permission to carry out this work.
You will need to get the relevant information regarding regulations on the official council websites. You will need the right permits, therefore it is best to ensure you have all the information first hand before you make a decision. Here are some further cost breakdowns for you:
- Architect design fee: This will be a full analysis of the area, including any plans, which may cost around £1000.
- Planning permission costs: The cost for this is usually around £200.
- Building regulation costs: You must submit your plans following a thorough survey. The cost for these building regulations costs maybe around £500-£800.
What type of lofts do we build in basildon?
We offer a range of different loft conversions across Basildon. There are many to choose from, and therefore we are happy to talk you through everything available to you. Here are some of the most popular types:
Dormer loft conversions
Dormer loft conversions are built out of a sloping roof. Dormer windows create space and illuminate rooms. In the case of a dormer window, the roof slope is much more open, therefore it creates headroom as well as the possibility of installing window elements in the new external wall. There is no need for side or other partitions and these areas can be used as living space. The overall impression of the house is changed by the size, shape, and external cladding of the dormer window. Dormer windows can only be erected with a building permit or building notice.
Velux loft conversions
Velux loft conversions don’t require a lot of construction work. With a closed VELUX roof window, you don’t have to do without fresh air. All of our roof windows have a unique VELUX ventilation flap for fresh air supply even when the window is closed. In this way, you can enjoy healthy indoor air quality, even in bad weather. It offers additional space and light and is one of the cheaper and more common options for loft conversions. There is no dormer added, it is simply the window opening.
With a mansard roof or mansard roof, the lower part of the roof surface is steeper than the upper part at the ridge. You can add a couple of new rooms including a bathroom. There are different types to consider. The roof usually has a gradient of 72 degrees. The classic mansard roof is a gable roof with only the front of the house curved, which is also the simplest form of the mansard roof. The mansard roof with folded surfaces on both sides of the facade, which is already a further development of the original mansard roof. The mansard roof, which, like a hipped roof, has a steep slope in the lower part of the roof planes around the roof on all four sides.
Hip to gable loft conversions
Hip to a gable loft conversion is mostly found on semi-detached homes. The hip is extended vertically and creates a gable. Hip roofs are very stable and offer a durable finish. They are great for poor weather conditions such as extreme rain or wind. They look stunning and have a great finish. It doesn’t look like anything has been added on, but rather elegantly attaches to the top of the home to look complete.
