Semi Detached Loft Conversion London
SEMI DETACHED LOFT CONVERSIONS LONDON
Loft conversions are a great way to gain extra living space without moving home. It can often be cost effective to utilise the space in the loft, as opposed to the financial costs and personal upheaval associated with moving to a new property.
Semi-detached properties lend themselves very well to creating additional rooms. There are several types of loft conversion that are well-suited to this type of house. Whether you are considering a dormer loft conversion or a straightforward Velux loft conversion, working with a professional loft conversion company will help find the best way to add rooms into the loft.
Loft Conversions In Semi Detached Houses
Semi detached properties usually lend themselves very well to creating additional rooms because the loft can easily be converted. There are several types of loft conversion that are well-suited to this type of house. Whether you are considering a dormer loft conversion or a straightforward Velux loft conversion, working with a professional loft conversion company will help find the best way to add rooms into the loft.
Hip to Gable Loft Conversions for Semis
Semi detached properties often have a hipped roof, which does not typically offer much in the way of headroom across the loft space. Building a gable wall on the far side of the property allows the ridge of the roof to be extended. This creates additional headroom and opens up usable floor space for a loft conversion.
Adding A Dormer To Semi Detached Properties
Whether you need to convert a hipped roof or not, a dormer is another way to add usable floor space to the loft. A dormer creates a boxed window structure that is fixed into the slope of the roof.
Velux Loft Conversion For Semi Detached Houses
If your property does not have a hipped roof then a simple skylight loft conversion could give you all the space you need. There is minimal structural work required for this type of loft conversion and it should be the cheapest and fastest way to gain additional space. However, this type of loft conversion is not always the most cost effective option.

How Much Does A Semi Detached Loft Conversion Cost?
The cost of a loft conversion could start anywhere between £20,000 and £30,000. However this depends on the type of conversion and the size of the loft. It is important to remember that ballpark estimates are not the same as a proper quotation. In order to generate an accurate quote, a reputable loft conversion company should survey the property. This allows them understand the structure of the building. It also means potential issues can factored into the design, such as the position of chimney breasts or structural supports.
The type of rooms you intend to add to the property will also impact the cost of a loft conversion. For example, including a bathroom will mean more materials and labour to install compared to converting the loft to a bedroom. The level of finish will also play a big part too. Things like fixtures, fittings and decoration all add to costs too.
Will A Loft Conversion Add Value To My Semi Detached House?
Homeowners should think about the value that a loft conversion could add to their home. If the work has all the necessary permissions in place and has been carried out to building regulations then adding space to property generally adds value. In addition, properties with loft conversions are more attractive to potential future buyers too.
Working out the ceiling prices in an area can help to frame the decision to convert the loft space. For example it may be better to spend a little extra to include an ensuite. This is because additional bathrooms typically increases the value and saleability more than just adding a bedroom.
