Loft conversions are become a popular alternative to buying or selling a house due to the uncertainty of the property market at the moment.
Few people know much about loft conversions but they’re not actually that complicated and any good company will be more than happy to answer any questions you have. The process of getting a conversion will start with your chosen company coming around your house to establish what will be the most cost efficient way of carrying out your loft conversion. They will also be able to give you design ideas and tell you what type of conversion is the most suitable for your home.
Following this consultation any plans for loft conversions are drawn up so that you can see exactly what you are going to get.
Providing that you are happy with what you have seen, your building plans will be submitted to your Local Authority for approval. This is an important part of the process and any good company will keep you fully updated through each stage of your application. Once this stage has been completed, the contracts department of the loft conversions company you are dealing with will compile a full list of the agreed work they are going to do for you.
Once all the paper work has been completed, building work has been approved and both parties are happy a delivery date will be agreed. This means you will know exactly when all building work will be completed. From here workmen from the loft conversions company you have employed will carry out the building work until it is completed.
After this has been done company supervisors will visit your home to answer any questions that you may have. They will also check that all loft conversions comply with any building regulations. Finally, a building inspector will visit the site to inspect the conversion and ensure that it is up to a high standard.
