Altering Roof Structures In Luton
If you happen to live in a conservation area, or if your roof space isn't tall enough, getting planning permission may be more complicated. Unless your roof has a breathable felt you will need to leave a void above the installed insulation and ensure that you have effective roof ventilation to prevent the build-up of condensation in your home.
Did you know that loft conversions on bungalows have little effect on the fire safety of your home, beyond making sure that the new windows are large enough to escape out of. As part of the fire safety upgrade for your loft conversion your stairways should lead to a hall and an external door.
