If you need help with designing loft conversions to maximise the space at your Tonbridge, Maidstone or Tunbridge Wells home, our building contractors are here to help. As accredited members of the Federation of Master Builders (FMB), we are highly experienced in creating attic conversions to suit any size property in the wider Kent and Southeast area. Our multi-talented team is also adept at enhancing interiors with fully insulated and damp-proofed garage conversions!
Loft conversions are great ways for homeowners in Tonbridge, Maidstone or Tunbridge Wells to add more rooms by utilising the space they already have. Most lofts are destined to be storage or junk rooms; however, attic conversions are commonly transformed into extra living areas instead. If domestic customers choose to allocate another bedroom to their loft, the value of their property can increase by up to 20%. Overall, loft and attic conversions are great investments for Kent and Southeast customers, including those who are planning to sell their home for a higher profit.
The building contractors at The Loft Company (Construction) Ltd carry out the following types of loft conversions:
1. Dormer Loft Windows – To add more head room, dormer loft conversions extend forward from the existing roof to form a flat ceiling. This also provides a great amount of floor space for bedrooms and bathrooms, such as en suites or wet rooms.
2. Hip to Gable Conversions – In comparison to dormer windows, hip to gable attic conversions incorporate the original pitched roof into the design. Both the loft and the existing roof is extended to blend in with the rest of your Tonbridge, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells property.
3. Mansard Lofts – Larger loft conversions span the entire length of your Kent property, which can house new lodgings for rented accommodation. This requires planning permission due to extensive work, including changes to the angle of pitched roofs.
4. VELUX Attic Conversions – This is an ideal solution to make small lofts appear to be bigger. If your Kent property has a narrowly pitched roof, more natural daylight will enhance the comfort of your interiors. Building contractors do not always need planning permission for VELUX loft conversions as they are fitted into the plane of the roof. Nevertheless, glass and window seals need to offer sufficient insulation.
Our building contractors also carry out garage conversions for Tonbridge, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells clients, which can be turned into recreational spaces, living rooms or bathrooms. If you only require driveways for off-road parking, garage conversions are suited to home offices, gyms, workshops and studios too. Like loft and attic conversions, our team works closely with you to ensure all garage conversions comply with UK building regulations. This involves making garages habitable with optimal insulation and damp-proof membranes.
We guarantee that all loft conversions and garage conversions are fully inspected by qualified electricians, plumbers and Gas Safe engineers, while our building contractors complete the finishing touches.
