Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Kent
If you've got all the living space that you need downstairs but are lacking bedrooms and bathrooms, then a loft conversion can be the perfect way to bring your home into proportion. When converting the loft of a semi-detached or terraced property you will need to ensure that the sound resistance of the party wall is upgraded so that sound transmission to your neighbours is reduced.
The Various Types Of Loft Conversions In Kent
One type of loft conversion involves one or both slopes of the roof being replaced with a new structure with very steep sloping sides (almost as steep as the walls).
The additional space of your loft conversion can be used as an additional bedroom or two, a study or home office, a separate bathroom or a nursery. Popular uses for a loft conversion include a teenage den, cinema room or home office.
Building Regulations In Kent, United Kingdom
Because loft conversions will always need approval under building regulations (irrespective of whether they need planning permission) it pays to adopt the full plans application approach and have a detailed scheme approved before you approach a builder. As a loft conversion involves a material change of use, building regulations must be met.
Homes in conservation areas will generally have restricted permitted development rights.
