Loft Conversions

Making use of unused roof space will add space and value to you home

MT520508

Loft conversions are top of the home improvements list in terms of value for money. Not every loft can be converted – you need 2.4m of headroom and some styles such as trussed roofs are more difficult to convert – so it’s a good idea to call in a professional to give you an expert opinion.

Incorporating an en-suite bathroom also makes sense, (no need to go up and down the stairs) and when you’re selling it’s a real plus point. A loft conversion can also have other uses – a den for teenagers, for example, or a home office – but its location at the top of the house makes it ideally suited for a peaceful night’s sleep. A standard loft conversion will set you back in excess of £15,000.
