Loft Conversion Glasgow
High Quality Loft Conversions in Glasgow?
Builders Glasgow can take the existing loft space in your home – which is currently lying un- or under-used – and build a loft conversion which converts a loft into additional living space to maximise the potential space, usability and value of your current home.
The role that a house is expected to fulfil in modern times has grown in several ways. We see increasing numbers of adult children living at home, elderly parents moving in with their children and greater demand for home working from both employed and self-employed clients. These additional demands create great pressure on the use of the existing space available in a property and often the only way to meet these new requirements is by the creation of extra living space.
Converting a loft into living space offers a cost-effective and practical solution to extending your home in order to increase the number of usable rooms. Your loft lies within the current footprint of your property so (normally) requires less work (and expense) than a conventional house extension of the same size.
Additional benefits of a converting a loft or attic include: the protection of your existing garden space, the (potential) increase in value and saleability of your property, a faster build with less upheaval and the possibility of adding a whole new level of rooms which can fulfil several needs in one conversion e.g. extra bedrooms, a new bathroom and a home office to cope with a growing family and a need to work from home.
#1 Choice for Loft Conversions in Glasgow
Why choose a Builders Glasgow loft conversion?
The conversion of a loft by a professional building firm creates the extra living and/or working space you need whilst being reassured that your new rooms are constructed according to the relevant Scottish building regulations – thus ensuring that the revamped space is correctly built, safe to use and finished to an appropriate level of quality.
Attic conversions – where an existing attic is converted into rooms – can appear relatively straightforward to the layman but they require the specialist knowledge and skills that only suitably trained, qualified and experienced building trade professionals can provide as converting a loft for daily use places additional demands on your home’s existing structure. For this reason, it is imperative to engage the right people who will ensure that your home’s overall structural integrity is safeguarded during the conversion of a loft.
Trust Builders Glasgow to convert your loft into the extra space that you need in a safe, professional manner and to the standard that you deserve.
Why convert a loft (versus an extension)?
Faster build – less external building work (i.e. no demolition & reconstruction of exterior walls) means that is a faster way to add new space.
No reduction in garden size – Adding new rooms above your existing rooms by converting a loft means that your garden remains intact.
Less disruption – a faster build and no need to open up existing external walls means that there is (relatively) less upheaval during the conversion of a loft.
Planning permission – as a loft conversion is within the existing footprint of your current property, it may make obtaining planning permission easier than for an extension.
What can I convert my loft into
Most lofts and attics spend their lives as a repository for old toys, books and piles of other unloved household clutter. This, however, is a tremendous waste of a significant amount of space which you could put to much better use. Your loft spans your entire roof space so represents (potentially) a whole new storey that could be added to your home – offering up the possibilities presented by an entire set of new rooms to maximise the space available in your beloved current home. It could even save you the expense, time and upheaval of having to move home in order to acquire more space.
What can a loft be made into? Clients approach us with a myriad of requirements and design ideas for their loft conversion projects in Glasgow so we are well-versed in the possible options and mix of room types that a loft space can be converted into.
Generally-speaking, a loft can be turned into anything you desire – single spaces or multiple rooms for the purposes of living, leisure or work or a mixture thereof – subject to the limitations of your budget, your property’s roof structure and building regulations.
Typical loft conversions on bungalows involve the addition of several rooms such as 2-3 bedrooms, a bathroom, storage cupboard and/or a home office but a loft or attic conversion can be designed to suit your specific needs and the type of house you live in. Loft conversion rooms can include one or more of the following:
- Additional bedroom/s Second bathroom
- Home office Artist’s studio/craft space
- Games room Home cinema room
- Home gym/fitness room Independent living space
