Cost Loft Conversion

You are quite keen to convert your loft but there’s one thing that’s got you scratching your head – how will you pay for it all? It is becoming rather common for families in Cambridge to add the loft in the family home to their living area but it can be an expensive venture. Before you shelve the idea it is a good idea to find out how much it costs and exactly what you will be getting.
It is hard to say exactly how much loft conversion will cost – it all depends on the particular project that a contractor is handling, as well as the contractor himself. In some homes, for instance, the loft has been neglected for so long that it will require a lot of work to convert it into a living space. In other cases, especially in new build homes it doesn’t take much work to convert an existing an existing loft into a bedroom, and office or even a game room.
You should ask at least three contractors to come in and have a look at the space that you are working with and give you their opinion on how much it will cost and what kind of work will g into the conversion. Compare the three quotes to see which one offers the most value, but you should be careful not to choose a contractor just because they are cheap. You should instead look at the quality of workmanship provided and the kind of guarantees that you get. Be careful about contractors who are too expensive – many of them have nothing extraordinary to offer.

Loft Conversion Cambridge

Your teenager is growing up and needs a bit of privacy, and you have decided to convert the attic into a loft for them. Loft conversions are quite common, but getting one done properly is not so easy. The builder that you choose for your project matters – if you go with just any Cambridge builder you may not get the results that you are looking for. Worse yet, they may compromise the already existing structure of your home.
The first question you should ask any builder that you have in mind is whether they have done loft conversion in the past. Ask them to show you proof – they should be able to give you at least 3 names of homeowners that they have done this kind of work for, and they should also have good pictures that they can show you.
Have a detailed discussion about the kind of loft that you have in mind. There are many different loft designs available, and you want to have one built that not only fits in with the existing structure, but also fulfils the needs of your teenage child. You should ask the builder to show you sketches of the completed work. If you are not happy or if you would like any alterations made you should talk to the builder after you have seen the sketches.
Make sure that you work with a builder who gives a warranty not just for the labour, but also for the materials that they use. You may get expert workmanship, but if the builder uses cheap materials your loft will not last a very long time.
