The why

Loft conversions? What good are they? Think about this; a loft conversion can add up to 20% to your property's value. Usually, families convert lofts to have more living space and avoid having to move to another home.

Not only would you be leveraging some pounds by not moving, but you will also be adding value to your property. Converting the loft into an office space is a great way to save time. You can work out of your home office. It is a very convenient usable space to have. Besides, after the Covid-19 pandemic, transitioning back to normalcy will most certainly be hard. It is likely that many people will be required to continue working from home. An office space at home makes it easier to concentrate and increase productivity.

Keep in mind the space and ceiling angles, will dictate what type of furniture you will have and what the loft can be. Most often, it is well-suited to be a space for sleeping, play, or an office.

What about Cost?

At any given time, the cost depends on several factors, unique to each home. They include things like the existing roof structure and pitch, the remodelling work that will need to be done, any alterations to accommodate a new staircase, and other specific details that will all be made available to our client.
