99% of lofts can be converted, the difference is how far you have to go to make it a truly usable living space. If you want to convert within your existing loft space, you’ll need a minimum of head height of 2.3m from the top of the floor joist to the bottom of apex (see picture). If don’t have the 2.3m height, then don’t worry there are still plenty of options such as roof lifts.
Have you been told you can’t covert your loft before, then give us a call, as we’ve resolved this on many occasions.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a simple answer to this as loft conversions are varied. It also depends on how you want to have your new loft space fitted out, and how much of this will be done by your builder. The largest factors of converting a roof are:
1) Is the current loft head height you have sufficient and does it need a roof lift or an alternative solution;
3) How the space is to fitted out, such as how many windows, bathroom or en-suites, or do you want a balcony
4) How much of the work you wish to complete yourself if any. We offer a DIY Loft Conversion option, ideal if you want to keep costs down.
