Here at Manchester Loft Converters, we specialize in Loft Conversion in the Manchester, England and surrounding areas such as Droylsden, Salford, Prestwich, Pendlebury, Failsworth, Swinton, Eccles, and Stretford so much so that we have created and named an entire company around it. Loft conversion as a service is very important and overlooked by many home owners, as the benefits of a converted loft are often unknown to them. Even more so are the benefits of having the converted loft become a room dedicated to whatever you would like for it to be! Remember we can also offer Loft Extensions, Loft Boarding's and Loft Designs, so we can help you every step of the way.
There are many things that you could do with a newly converted loft that you may have thought was not possible. You can make a room that is dedicated to fish tanks either on the ground in the centre of the room or even within the walls. You can make a room for dogs, cats or turtles to sleep in. You can even convert your loft to be a museum of family heirlooms if you would like. This is just an example of how diverse or varied a loft conversion can be.
Reasons for loft conversions
The more common uses for a loft conversion is to create a second bedroom to accommodate visiting family members such as your parents, in-laws or siblings. You could even create a second bedroom so that if your family was to grow or you have more children on the way, that you will have more than enough space within the home for all the kids to have a separate bedroom. Some even like to rent out their loft bedroom to people who need a place to stay.
Others like to turn their lofts into games rooms. People dedicate their lofts into a room for their favourite football team so that they can watch the game on the match day surrounded by memorabilia. I would name one of the Manchester, United Kingdom teams but I feel I would be making someone mad! Others like to turn their rooms into a table top gaming room so that they can have fun with both the family and friends.
It really is up to you for what you choose to do with your newly converted loft. If you have an idea we are more than able and willing to help! Even if you do not have a design we are also able to assist you with that too. Just get into contact with us and we will be able to discuss options.
Loft Conversion Process
The process for a loft conversion is quite simple to explain, with the complicated part being the actual work involved. For you to understand the process that is undertaken when we begin a loft conversion, we have summed it up very simply.
The optional part of the process is if you would like help to design your converted lofts room. This means that if you would like advice on the colour schemes, furniture, additions or anything else just ask us before we have begun the conversion itself and we will help you however we can.
The first part of the process is to board the loft. This is basically the foundation of the loft itself, and we do this to ensure that the loft space is as safe to use as possible. This includes use by you, wear and tear from the building and even the weight of the items that will be placed into the loft itself.
The second part of the process is to correctly insulate the loft to ensure that air does not escape through the roof or any holes within the insulation itself. Trapped air or free-flowing air can be a very bad thing for a loft, but being able to correctly control the temperature of the room using heaters or air conditioning (whatever you would prefer) is important for general usage of the room.
The third and final part is the furniture and finishing’s of the room. This can include anything from adding a staircase entrance to adding a new window or balcony to the side of the loft. It also includes the introduction and implementation of furniture. Also, included would be the flooring's and the wallpaper or painting the wall.
That is really the whole process of a loft conversion summed up. While a lot of the work involved in the loft conversion process itself is difficult to do, these are really the main steps to ensure that your loft is safe, warm and usable for a long period of time.
