Could your home be suitable for a loft conversion?

Is my Victorian Terrace Property suitable for a loft conversion?

 

In short, YES! Generally speaking, the design of Victorian

terrace buildings lend themselves to being adapted rather nicely. We often carry out renovations

on Victorian terrace properties in South East London, from bathrooms being moved upstairs, to loft conversions, rear extensions, side- return extensions, kitchen extensions/ renovations, and more.

Popular choice: L- Shaped Dormer

Due to the structural design of Victorian terrace properties, with the main house and then the two storey read addition or outrigger. L-Shaped Dormer loft conversions are generally the best fit and value for money. An L- shaped dormer offers a wonderful amount of space and we often find that people like to make these conversions into individual rooms.

This isn’t your only option, of course, there are also Single Dormer, Hip to Gable, Full Width

Dormer, and Mansard conversions that can be added to your home depending on the size and style of the property. 

 

Factors to consider when looking into getting a loft conversion

 

Some of the key features to look out for are the structure of your roof, the height of your roof, and whether or not you have chimneys that need to or can be removed.

You will also need to check on your local planning website to ensure that your property can have an extension added.

This is because you could be in a conservation area, disturbing the character of the local area, as well as other design issues. This might seem a little daunting but don`t worry, our team is happy to discuss attaining planning permission with you in detail to help bolster your chances of getting planning permission approved. 

Add space and value to your home with a loft conversion

Not only can a loft conversion add a whole new living space to your property, it can also add

to its potential value as well. Propertypriceadvice.co.uk believe that a loft conversion can

add an estimated 15% to the total value of your home.

Think that your property could benefit from the extra space and value of a loft

conversion?
