This loft home improvement network covers most local Reading regions including building companies and joiners.
A loft conversion is a major renovation project. It will increase your Reading property value and can be an excellent way to create more living space.
There are some main factors to consider before you start:
Suitability of your property – Are you converting a Reading house with already existing levels? Will there be enough space for the staircase? How does it connect to other parts of the building? If there is a need for structural reinforcement, how much will this cost? Is there enough power for more sockets or air conditioning units in the loft area? Do you have any concerns about noise from neighbours or the Reading street below?
The basic process of converting a Reading loft space can take anywhere from one day up until a few weeks, depending on how much work is being done and the scope of it. The extent of work depends on if there is already some sort of flooring or not, if there are walls and windows, etcetera.
3D technology has been used by certain Reading contractors for many years now and it is becoming increasingly popular. Where possible, with 3D scanning, Reading architects can explore spaces like never before, helping them with design and layout of the building before any construction work begins. This means that you can have an accurate idea of what your Reading loft conversion will look like before you spend any money on it!
Designers might be able to come up with a great concept for a loft conversion but lack the knowledge about how the local building codes apply or how much time will be required for different stages of the Reading project. A good Reading designer will also take into account any limitations that are imposed by their client’s budget. They should know when it is appropriate to negotiate pricing and when not to.
Semi-attached: A loft conversion that takes place between two Reading semi-detached houses, with one side of the building being shared by both properties. This type of conversion may be more complicated than a detached house because you will need to work around your neighbour's living space.
Bungalow lofts are a very popular type of home improvement. Compared a traditional Reading 2 storey home they usually come with nice high ceilings, a larger open space floor area, which give more options for Vellux windows and different designs.
A Reading terraced house can be converted into a loft to make more space, usually means adding dormer windows, higher ceilings and putting in new floors. It will need to be designed taking your Reading neighbours into account, with possible builders access from the front or rear.
