Loft Conversion Grays

Loft Conversion Grays

Everyone would like a bigger home, but we can’t all afford to upgrade our properties to something more significant. Instead, many of us look for creative ways to make best use of our existing space; expanding what we already have in an effort to better serve a growing family, give ourselves a dedicated space for hobbies or work or maybe just create somewhere to retreat and unwind.

Whatever your need for extra space, loft or attic conversions are a cost-effective way of giving yourself a little more room. Much like a garage conversion, a loft conversion converts the existing space in a house and repurposes it for something more practical beyond simply being a storage place.

When considering home improvements and extensions, it’s crucial to be mindful of laws and building regulations that may stifle your ambitions. A great benefit of loft conversions is that they rarely require planning permission, meaning that turning your loft space into some extra living space is often a hassle-free project.

Types of loft conversions

When enhancing your property with a loft conversion, the first question is, “Which one is right for me?”. Feeling insufficiently informed to make an educated choice can be a daunting prospect.

Many people wonder which is the best style for a detached house or semi detached houses. Similarly, you may be unsure if you can have one on a terraced house. It can also be a question of whether building regulations will restrict your choice.

To stop this ambiguity from halting your loft conversion plans, we’ll look to dispel some of that uncertainty by elaborating on the main six styles of loft conversion available.

Read on to learn more about the various different loft conversions and then decide which extension style is right for your property and budget.

Bungalow Loft Conversion Grays

The appeal of bungalows is that they often have a vast floor space to make up for the lack of a first floor. But who says you can’t have both? A bungalow with a loft conversion is an enviable prospect, giving you access to your loft and tapping into the unclaimed potential of your roof space.
If you’re a bungalow owner looking for a loft conversion in Grays, Anigmar can transform your dusty old storage space into a beautifully functional new room. Our loft conversion specialists not only reappropriate your loft but can also help you with the design and construction of the loft stairs to access it.

Hip to Gable Loft Conversions Grays

Throughout Essex and particularly in Grays, there are many properties that have hipped roofs. A hipped roof is distinguishable by the way it slopes towards the sides of the building and is most commonly found on detached and semi detached houses. Although this is an attractive design feature, it can severely limit your loft and home space.
When we create a gable loft conversion, the roof is extended out so that the slopes can be replaced with flat sides. A Gable conversion and the construction of a hip to gable loft will vastly increase your available space. It’s worth noting, however, that by changing your house from hip to gable, you may need to seek planning permission.

Velux Loft Conversions Grays

Velux loft conversions are a very popular choice due to the way they retain the pitched roof structure and introduce an abundance of new light through the large windows.
Compared to other options, there is less construction required, which can also make them more cost effective. They create an open, airy feeling to a previously gloomy and dark space.

Mansard Loft Conversions Grays

Mansard loft conversions are generally built onto the back of the property and create a new shape to your roof. This means that, in most cases, these loft conversions will need planning permission. They have an additional flat roof, and the back wall slopes inwards. This will create a sizeable chunk of new space on the roof that protrudes from your loft. They’re attractive and spacious but do come with some considerations due to the amount of construction required.

Dormer Loft Conversions Grays

A dormer loft conversion is split up into three different types: L-shaped dormer, full rear dormer and pitched roof dormer.
Let’s start with the L-shaped, which are a good choice if you live in a mid-terrace property in Grays that allows for this style of build. They offer significant extra room by building up and out.
A full rear dormer adds additional space by building out from your sloping roof without encroaching on the part that belongs to your next door neighbours. They make full use of the roof space and are an ideal option if your house in Grays is semi detached.
Finally, a pitched roof dormer is a loft extension usually built to match the slope of your current roof. This makes them a good choice if you live in a Grays conservation area with strict requirements that have to be met before converting space or building an extension. A pitched roof loft conversion blends seamlessly with your home’s current aesthetic whilst giving you that much-desired increase in space.

Which loft conversion is right for me?

From reading the above, you should hopefully feel more informed about loft conversions and which will best suit your Essex home. It generally comes down to personal choice and requirements, but property size, shape and location will also play a part.

Frequently asked questions (FAQS)

How much do loft conversions cost?

Like any building project, prices are always variable and will change based on any specific requirements or additional work. As a rough guide, you can expect a figure between £20,000 and £50,000. L-shaped and Bungalow are usually at the top end of this scale and can sometimes even exceed it, whereas a Velux option is likely to be a lot cheaper. To gain a more accurate assessment, feel free to speak to us today, and we’ll create a free quote for you.

Do loft conversions increase the value of a home?

After outlaying the expense required for a loft conversion, it’s nice to know that, in general, your new investment can add anywhere up to 20% to the value of your property. This is not set in stone, but as a minimum, you will have a functional new area to enjoy and be the proud owner of a highly desirable Essex home.

Garage conversions or loft conversions?

Both can seem like a desirable option when extending your home in Grays. It will really depend on personal choice, building restrictions and intended use of your new area. Typically, a loft is larger than a garage, so you will gain more room converting your loft. A garage conversion, however, is unlikely to need any extra permission and could be cheaper.
