Converting Your Blackpool, Lancashire Loft
One of the biggest loft conversion cost factors is location.
Extensions normally increase the heat load requirement of the house and so the boiler has to be upgraded, but a loft conversion may require little extra capacity as the space will be well insulated and can improve the overall energy efficiency of the house. Ready-made loft conversions, made off-site and craned into position are quick and will reduce labour costs, which can be beneficial if you live in an area where labour costs are higher. Converting your loft from a cold dark storage area to a desirable and habitable living space is, in fact, one the quickest and cheapest ways to add extra room and value to your home.
You Need Planning Permission In Blackpool
You will need planning permission if you are altering the roof height or shape (which may be the case if you have to raise it for headroom) but Loft Conversions Blackpool can advise you on this. Loft Conversions Blackpool can tell you that not all loft conversions need planning permission. Most loft conversions can be done under permitted development rights, which allow the improvement and extension of homes, under certain restrictions.
If you are carrying out loft conversion works and are managing the project yourself, you should arrange conversion insurance to cover the new works and the existing structure. Before starting any loft conversion project Loft Conversions Blackpool advise that you speak to your local planning department to prevent any surprises.
