VELUX loft conversion projects are perfect for smaller properties. They don’t require major structural changes and can be fitted without planning permission.

Can My Neighbours Stop My Loft Conversion
If you want to add a staircase, there are a number of types to choose from. Spiral staircases are slightly steeper than traditional stairs, but will have a small footprint.
Hip to gable conversion jobs are often required to hire a structural engineer. The structural engineer will determine the proper spacing of the new floor joists. He will also ensure the loft is structurally sound.
Roof light conversions are an inexpensive way to add a window and insulation to your attic. However, this method doesn’t allow for much flexibility.
Depending on your property, you may need to have sound insulation installed between the lofts. Also, you might need to have fire protection and smoke alarms in the stairways.
Although there are many different factors that can affect the cost of a loft conversion, a typical project can range from PS21,000 to PS65,000. Depending on the type of conversion you have in mind, you might be able to find a more affordable solution.
