Bungalow Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Swindon
Whatever you're planning on gaining from a bungalow loft conversion, you'll often find you've got the space to achieve it. Bungalows, especially those built in the mid-twentieth century, often have steep roof pitches that give a lot of scope for loft conversions, but can also lack the necessary load bearing walls, as the building was not initially designed to have the weight of an extra floor. If you are considering converting your bungalow with a loft conversion, there are several routes that you can take so call Loft Conversions Swindon today to find out more.
Converting Your Bungalow Loft In Swindon
Any bath or shower room that is part of a loft conversion will also need to be fitted with an extractor fan to improve ventilation. The standard of fixtures and fittings in your loft conversion will impact on the cost of the project - for example, if you are simply planning to use the space as a bedroom, it will be cheaper than if you are putting a bathroom in the space.
Before going too far into planning your loft conversion project, we suggest you carry out a brief survey that checks for any possible issues. When converting your loft you will need to ensure you have mains powered, interlinked smoke detectors in the hall and/or landing areas of every floor.
Building Regulations For Your Swindon, Wiltshire Loft Conversion
Building regulations are necessary for many home projects, and it is no different with bungalow loft conversions. Depending on the size of the conversion, and other factors such as its impact on the street scene and whether or not your home is in a conservation area, planning permission may be required.
CO2 emissions are a major concern in today's environment and you will need to provide a high level of insulation to your roof as part of your loft conversion. Roof insulation is an important factor when it comes to the loft conversion of a bungalow.
