Converting Your Coventry, West Midlands Loft
One of the biggest loft conversion cost factors is location.
Extensions normally increase the heat load requirement of the house and so the boiler has to be upgraded, but a loft conversion may require little extra capacity as the space will be well insulated and can improve the overall energy efficiency of the house. In addition to offering valuable extra living space, loft conversions give one of the best returns on investment you can get when it comes to extending, with research suggesting they add the most value to your home in comparison to the cost. Converting your loft from a cold dark storage area to a desirable and habitable living space is, in fact, one the quickest and cheapest ways to add extra room and value to your home.
You Need Planning Permission In Coventry
You will need planning permission if you are altering the roof height or shape (which may be the case if you have to raise it for headroom) but Loft Conversions Coventry can advise you on this. Not all loft conversions will need planning permission, but it will be required if you're extending or changing the roof space and it exceeds certain limits and conditions. Most loft conversions can be done under permitted development rights, which allow the improvement and extension of homes, under certain restrictions.
Comparing the quoted cost of your loft conversion, plus the value of your home, with the cost of moving to a larger house in the same area is a worthwhile practice in assessing the benefits of converting the space. Before starting any loft conversion project Loft Conversions Coventry advise that you speak to your local planning department to prevent any surprises.
