Depending on the roof structure and planning constraints, a loft conversion is one of the most efficient & cost effective ways of getting extra space. Almost all houses can benefit from this extension with a bit of basic planning.
How we differ to most builders:
We answer the phone, we turn up, we finish on time and budget and we clean up after ourselves.
We really enjoyed working with Tom at Tri-Core, he was very personable and the team extremely hard working. They kept disruption to a minimum and their work was to an extremely high standard. We love the extra space we've now got and we've managed to recover the cost from the value we've added to the house.
Is My Loft Suitable for Conversion?
- Head Height, the useable part of the roof should be minimum 2.2m
- Pitch Angle, The higher the pitch angle, the higher head height is likely to be, and if dormers are used or the roof is redesigned, the floor area can be increased
- Property age :
- Pre 1960’s houses are typically traditional framed. This type of structure is often the most suitable type for loft conversions. The space can typically be opened up by strengthening the rafters and adding supports as specified by a structural engineer relatively inexpensively.
- Post 1960’s houses typically use factory-made roof trusses. These type of truss have no load bearing structures beneath, and so opening up the space will normally involve the insertion of steel beams between loadbearing walls for the new floor joists to hang on. The added structural input requires a greater cash outlay.
