The perfect loft conversion

Turning Empty loft space into something beautiful!

Families throughout the UK have come around to the idea of improving their homes rather than sell and uproot themselves, and I’m a firm believer that you can do a lot with your existing home space. Loft conversions are very popular because they can change an old unused space into something worth shouting from the rooftops about.

If you’ve dreamt of having a space to call your own but felt that you didn’t have the room, then think again. I spoke to a loft conversions Birmingham specialist at Dougherty Construction and I was inspired by what I heard! I’d never considered having a man cave for my husband, or a craft room for myself, a play area for the kids (it could even be soundproofed), a home cinema for entertaining or just to feel fancy. You could have pretty much anything you want, up above the house you’re already living in.

A space at the top of your house could be an ideal place for your new master bedroom, with lovely views, and peace & quiet away from the rest of the rooms in your house. If you’re considering it then here are some hints and tips for transforming your loft space in to a more useful area.

‘The attic’ is somewhere my dad always used to tell me my evil twin brother lived, it was a dark place that smelt weird and you could only get up there with a pole and a ladder so it was reserved for keeping Christmas decorations and my old school books in (I don’t know why we were keeping those). But if you put in some windows to make it light and airy it’d be like a different place straight away! Daylight is so undervalued until you look at a space which is always dark. There are many options when adding light to a loft conversion such as top; hung windows or even electric roof windows if you want to add a touch of luxury. Maybe even go one step further and install a balcony window system! Having a Juliette style balcony on your roof isn’t that difficult when you look into it.

Once you’ve added light, you just need to decorate with light airy colours in mind and pick out some furniture to suit your needs and bish bash bosh you’re done. When the room is filled with natural light flowing through the windows, some bespoke (or flat-pack IKEA) furniture, and light coloured walls, it’ll be one of your new favourite places to be!

When you make your choice solely based on the prices the roofer offers, you eventually end up having to spend extra money to fix problems.

Steer Clear Of Storm Chasers

Evaluate the Roofer’s Communication Techniques

Another thing you need to do is consider how the roofer returns your calls since communication is essential to any business. Go for a roofer who ensures you get what you need. If you fail to receive adequate communication from the roofer as they attempt to get your business, chances are they can get worse when you finally commit the job to them.

Check Whether They Have Appropriate Insurance and Licensing

There are numerous roofers Manchester has to offer and each one needs to have licenses. However, this does not prevent unlicensed ones from trying to take on roofing jobs. Therefore, before you settle on one, check whether they are insured. Ascertain the roofer can make a copy of the certificate available for validation purposes. Lack of proper insurance can potentially lead to legal action between you as a homeowner and the roofer if the employee is injured at your house.
