Diy Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Hampshire
If you're after extra space in your home then, depending on your roof structure, a loft conversion could be the project for you. As DIY projects go, converting your loft or attic space is probably one of the most complex due to the amount of hard work you'll need to put in, and the amount of time you'll need to spend on the task. Extensions normally increase the heat load requirement of a 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 actually improve the overall energy efficiency of the house.
Loft Conversions Hampshire Will Need To Ensure Saftey During Work Carried Out
For each designed load you intend to place on an existing floor, a calculation will need to be made to prove that the floor is capable of withstanding it.
If you need a purpose-built loft conversion staircase, it pays to have the design approved by your building control officer before you actually commission them. Existing doors on the stairway (ground and first floor) should be replaced with fire-resistant doors or upgraded and this should be indicated on your loft conversion drawings for building control.
