Bungalow Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Luton
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. Loft Conversions Luton can tell you everything you need to know about loft conversion design considerations, costing, planning and building regulations.
Converting Your Bungalow Loft In Luton
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. The standard of fixtures and fittings in the loft will have a large impact on the cost of the project - for example, if you are simply planning to use the space as a large bedroom, it will be cheaper than if you are putting a bathroom in the space, where you will need to purchase the suite, which can cost several thousand pounds.
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 Luton, Bedfordshire 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.
