How To Do A Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Hertfordshire
Depending on the roof structure of your property, a loft conversion is a straightforward way to enhance your property. Why not talk to the team at Loft Conversions Hertfordshire about how to build a loft conversion.
Ensuring A Safe Working Enviroment For Loft Conversions Hertfordshire To Work In
Don't forget that any new habitable rooms in your loft will need to be ventilated.
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 Hertfordshire to achieve excellent insulation levels and it can be covered with sound-rated plasterboard.
Altering Roof Structures In Hertfordshire
You don't usually need to make a lot of structural alterations to accommodate roof light or skylight windows in your new loft conversion, which makes them relatively easy for Loft Conversions Hertfordshire to fit. Some options can be expensive as they require the complex removal and rebuild of the existing roof.
The new floor in your home will need at least 30 minutes of fire-protection, which could mean re-plastering the ceilings below it and the loft room will have to be separated by a fire door, either at the top or bottom of the new stairs. As part of the fire safety upgrade for your loft conversion your stairways should lead to a hall and an external door.
