Loft Conversions Haringey
Five simple steps for a hassle free loft conversion
Undertaking a loft conversion can transform your Haringey home by creating additional space in the form of a new room, such as a bedroom with en-suite, with the added and attractive benefit of potentially increasing the value of your property by as much as 30%. Loft conversions are also a popular way of reducing the need to move home by means of providing additional space that might be required for an expanding family or changed family circumstances.
However, the path to a successful loft conversion can be a tricky one to tread which is how Access Loft Conversions, with over 15 years of expertise behind them, can step in and help prevent you from experiencing the many potential pitfalls that are waiting for the unwary loft converter.
Potential pitfalls of DIY loft conversions
These are numerous and include the necessity of getting the plans right so that any loft conversion efficiently utilises the available loft space and does not end up being a bit of a white elephant. Bad planning will result in a bad loft conversion! Other potential pitfalls include carrying out work without the necessary planning permission of Haringey local authority and not completing work to satisfy the statutory building regulations. These could both render your house unsellable and potentially dangerous if electrical and plumbing work has been carried by operators without the necessary qualifications.
Access Loft Conversions plans to completion service
All the potential pitfalls and even potential disasters mentioned above can be avoided by using Access Loft Conversions’ comprehensive plans to completion service. These simple steps will ensure a hassle free loft conversion experience and will result in your loft conversion delivering on all of your expectations.
Step 1: Initial contact
Talk to us and we will come to Haringey and take a look at the potential loft conversion project. We will discuss with you the possible planning permissions that may be required by Haringey Council, survey the property and we will then go away and get our experienced architect to draw up some plans and provide you with a fixed price quote, one that will NOT increase during the loft conversion process.
Step 2: Getting started
You have approved the plans and given us the go ahead, so let us take it all from here! We notify the Haringey authorities and obtain the necessary paperwork for the project to commence. Materials are delivered and we erect scaffolding, which enables us to access the loft space for most of the build, without having to disrupt your lives by entering the rest of the house, or by filling your house with dust.
Step 3: The real work begins
We create the external access to the loft space, carry out the necessary structural work, sound insulation and fire protection and fit Velux windows or dormers. The new staircase will be fitted, first fix electrical work and plumbing is carried out, followed by plasterboarding, plastering and the fitting of new doors as well as the second fix plumbing and wiring.
Step 4: Finishing touches & building regs
The loft conversion is finished to a high standard, normally in 3 to 5 weeks, ready for you to enjoy. The Haringey authorities will be notified to arrange a final inspection so that the building regulations certificate can be issued. The work will have already been inspected by the local Haringey building regulations department on more than one occasion to ensure that all the work meets the standards required, resulting in a safe loft conversion. We remove the scaffolding and any other materials.
Step 5: After care
Access Loft Conversions will be on hand to ensure that you continue to be 100% happy with your loft conversion and we will resolve any potential snags that can sometimes occur after a building project has been completed.
That’s it! Contact us now to get started with the first step.
