If you are considering a loft conversion and live in the Surrey area or surrounding counties, you will no doubt be searching for a contractor to survey, estimate and build that valuable new part to your home.
Lofts are dead space, often located within the property that is worth thousands, if not millions, of pounds. Space in the south eastern region of England is at a premium.
Developers are slow to build new estates and property prices are escalating way out of control.
But now there is a way to make your property in Surrey even more valuable – by converting the loft space into a living area.
It can add more value to your home than it actually costs to have the loft converted. Surrey Lofts has been converting loft spaces for more than 22 years in the region and have a sound and solid record of building across the regions of Surrey, South London, Hampshire, Berkshire and Sussex.
The best way to go about getting a loft conversion is realise what steps one needs to take to get this project underway. At Surrey Lofts it has identified three stages to the planning and implementation of your loft space.
So, you have decided to go ahead with the loft building plan and you will start by asking yourself: what exactly will it become and what should this new room be used for?
The options are: a study, where one can work from home or have some peace and quiet from the rest of the family home; another bedroom, where you could hire in a lodger or split two siblings up from the current one bedroom they occupy. Or you could turn the room into a crèche or a children’s play area.
The Second Phase
The survey is the next appointment to take place. A surveyor will look around at your property, measure up and listen to your dreams of what type of room you wish for it to become. Then the advice and price will take place.
The Final Phase
The third and final phase of the loft conversion involves the architect to submit the plans and drawings. These are essential as with any building work that takes place, it needs an architectural plan.
After this, the work and conversions can finally go ahead and your dream can thus be fulfilled.
