Which Type of Loft Conversion is Most Suitable?
When considering a loft conversion, you must take several factors into consideration, including available space, insulation and obtaining planning permission as well as what you intend to use the space for. There are three main varieties of loft conversion that we undertake at Kieron Cosgrove & Co Ltd:
Huddersfield Loft Conversions – Window Conversion
This is the most common conversion completed by Kieron Cosgrove & Co Ltd. The reason for this is the simplicity for the work required, and the dramatic effect that it can have on a space. Roof windows (most commonly Velux windows) are inserted into the roof space to provide light into the space, so that what may otherwise be wasted space can become a perfectly usuable and dynamic area. Window conversions completed by Kieron Cosgrove & Co Ltd can be completed within planning regulations so that planning permission is not required, but Building regulation approval is required for all loft conversions in Huddersfield. They can have a modernising effect which will also add sale value to a property.
Loft Conversions in Huddersfield – Dormer Conversion
This conversion is an excellent option for anyone considering a Huddersfield loft conversion. The idea is essentially based on a window integrated extension, the main purpose being the inclusion of greater head room. Huddersfield loft conversion also considers improved stair access an important feature of a Dormer Conversion. The unfortunate part about this conversion- and probably it’s reason for being slightly less popular than the standard window conversion- is the fact that planning permission is required. However, many Dormer Conversions are granted permission on first application.
Huddersfield Loft Conversion- Mansard Conversion
The Mansard Style roof has a very particular style, but one which adds a great deal of scope for loft conversions in Huddersfield. It is most popular for adding a further level onto a house with out any stone work on the exterior of the building. However, this is not their only use and many Mansard style Huddersfield loft conversions are used to conceal central heating systems and boilers, whilst they can be made more aesthetically pleasing by using a dormer style window. Planning permission is also required for these conversions. Mansard conversions are usually used for bigger, more archaic houses which naturally have flat roofs.
