How To Do A Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Poole

The most popular type of loft conversion in Poole is the L-shaped conversion which tends to work best for owners of Victorian terraced houses and properties or those of a similar style. Why not talk to the team at Loft Conversions Poole about how to build a loft conversion in your Poole home.

Ensuring A Safe Working Enviroment For Loft Conversions Poole To Work In

There is little doubt, that you will need the services of an architect when it comes to planning a loft conversion.

Your new floor needs soundproofing, and this is easily achieved by laying a mineral fibre quilt between the joists. Introducing timber studwork with mineral fibre insulation will allow Loft Conversions Poole to achieve excellent insulation levels and it can be covered with sound-rated plasterboard.

Altering Roof Structures In Poole

If your loft already has enough space then adding roof lights is a cheap way to convert it into a habitable space. Bear in mind that it's likely that structural elements will need to be altered to allow for circulation within the room and roof windows of your loft conversion.

Any new floor joists added as part of your loft conversion will need to offer at least 30 minutes worth of fire protection, which could mean replastering the ceilings in those first floor rooms below. Remember that it is often necessary to insulate party walls — both against heat loss and noise.

Working Under The Permitted Development Rights In Poole, Dorset

In most cases, loft conversions in Poole tend to be considered permitted development (pd), but your design will need to adhere to a number of specified parameters. When you convert the loft of a house and create a third floor the building regulations will require you to look at the fire precautions a lot more seriously.
