Diy Loft Conversion Step V Step by Loft Conversions Bath
Tackling a loft conversion project can be one of the most straightforward ways to add valuable new living space to your home. Purpose-built staircases are around 10 times the cost of standard (off-the-shelf) designs, so bear this in mind when you're planning your loft conversion. Loft Conversions Bath think there are key things you need to consider when weighing up whether a loft conversion is the right way to add more space to your property.

You'll need to assess your current loft space potential, secure planning permission and other consents, spend time getting the design right and appoint the best partners for your project. For many lucky homeowners, a loft conversion falls under permitted development.
Sound insulation is often neglected in the design of a loft conversion, but something you should certainly factor into your thinking. Insulation made from Rockwool fibre or similar is usually placed between floor joists, mainly for its sound-reduction properties.
