Bungalow Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Uk
Bungalows are prime candidates for loft conversions, taking underused loft or attic space and adding the capacity for extra bedrooms, living space, or a bathroom. With the help of a loft conversion specialist, you can reach for the stars – or at least the sky – with a bungalow conversion. There are several stages to a bungalow loft conversion, but Loft Conversions Uk are here to support you at each of them.
Converting Your Bungalow Loft In UK
After a loft conversion your roof will have to cope with significantly different loadings so it's always worth working with professionals to make sure your conversion is safe. Before you get started, you'll want to get a good idea of how much a bungalow loft conversion costs, so speak to the experienced loft conversion specialists at Loft Conversions Uk to find out everything you need to know.
Before you can go ahead with your bungalow loft conversion, you will need to get comprehensive plans drawn up, either by an architect, or by an architectural technician, or surveyor, laying out the design for the project. With a bungalow loft conversion, one of the key things to consider is where the new staircase will begin downstairs - the place where it seems most sensible to install it, such as the hallway, may not be possible due to the structure of the building, while placing it in another room will take up space.
Building Regulations For Your UK, United Kingdom Loft Conversion
Loft conversions always need approval under building regulations (irrespective of whether they need planning permission). Bungalow conversions vary slightly from typical house loft conversions - because the new space will still only be at a first-floor level, the regulations are less strict, especially when it comes to elements like fire safety.
To reduce unwanted noise, the walls and floor around bedrooms will need to be insulated to reduce sound transmission. Unless your roof has a breathable felt you will need to leave a void above the insulation and ensure that you have effective roof ventilation to prevent the build-up of condensation.
