Loft Conversions In Croydon
If you live in or around the Croydon area and are thinking about having a loft conversion in your home, it is a home improvement project that really does allow you to make the most of all the available space in your home.
A loft conversion is ideal for homeowners with a growing family that like where they live and don’t want to move to a larger property. It is also a great idea for those who are downsizing and need a bit of extra elbow room for all their possessions while they learn to adjust to their new home.
GL Design Services are a team of expert structural engineers that provide our services to homeowners in and around the Croydon area as well as across London. We have a strong reputation for our loft design plans and have worked with homeowners to perfect their dream loft conversions, a few examples of which you can see here.
The many benefits of having a loft conversion
There are many reasons for wanting a loft conversion, one of which is to enhance your home and increase its market value and selling price. On average a home with a high-quality loft conversion can attract around 20% more value than a similar home without one.
One of the most popular reasons why we are approached by homeowners about drawing up plans for a loft conversion is that the customers don’t want to leave their home. Adding in a loft conversion can mean there will be no need to move home for many families that love where they live and don’t want to move out of the area.
Plus the fact that it can be so expensive to move house. By staying put and extending into the loft you can avoid expenses such as stamp duty and sellers fees. It makes so much sense to stay where you are, improve your home, and make good use of the space that is already available to you in your loft instead of moving home.
Freedom to make your home your own
You have the flexibility to make your new loft space anything you like! From extra bedrooms for your growing family to a work-from-home office, study, or even a workout space with a sauna or steam room – the choice is yours!
If you want to use the space in your loft but you are not sure what you are looking for, then why not get in touch with us at GL Design Services Ltd. We can come out to conduct a site survey to make sure that your home is structurally sound and able to take the weight of a loft conversion.
Most loft conversion and home extensions don’t need planning permission, but this will depend on a lot of factors. If you are not sure whether you will need planning permission for your loft conversion, then we can help you with that.
Our highly knowledgeable and experienced team have worked on a lot of loft conversions of all different shapes and sizes across London and the Croydon area, including everything from new-build to period properties.
You have a few loft-style options including mansard and dormer style lofts, but this will ultimately depend on factors including the type of house you have, its size, how you want to use your loft, and your available budget.
