So you are thinking of a loft conversion? Asset lofts are an established local loft specialist company. A loft conversion can be a great investment, potentially creating extra living space from the largest unused area in your house – The loft. With property values around London and the home counties ever increasing then a loft is the perfect way to add value, sometimes up to 20% of the value of your home and without the hassle and cost of moving.
Also known as a Velux™ or Sky-light this is a straight forward loft conversion for lofts that already offer enough space for purpose. We bring in the daylight and make the space liveable and workable. The useable area will be approximately the internal size of the loft area as it is now. Most internal obstructions will have been removed i.e. support beams. The floor area will probably be raised by a few inches for the new structural support. Everything would be built to building regulations. You do not normally need any planning permissions for this type of work as you are building within the existing realms of your loft space and externally your house will look the same, except for the sky light windows. Skylight windows by Velux™ are regarded as the best. Average build time is 4-6 weeks.
