Loft Conversions

Provided there is sufficient headroom, most roofs can be converted. You need to think about what type of conversion you want, where the stairs will go and what changes may be needed to the plumbing system.

Roofing

If you have missing tiles and slates on your roof, damage will occur to the roof felt, timbers or plaster ceilings. Also, having your guttering cleared of moss and leaf build up can help prevent roof damage. If your gutters are blocked up this could cause an overflow which will cause damp to penetrate in to the roof and walls. When cleaning out your gutters look at the downspouts. If you have signs of asphalt granules, then your roof may be failing, and be in need of a repair.

If you start to notice broken tiles and debris on the group this could be an indication that there may be a problem. Try not to go up on to your roof yourself - you're best leaving this to the professionals as you could dislodge the protective surface granules.

 

Extensions

As with any major project, there are a lot of factors that need to be carefully considered before any work on an extension can be undertaken. From initial designs to planning applications, supplies to labour costs, each stage of the process has the potential to cause major disruptions to the project if it is not thought through before hand.
