Tips for Scaffolding in Staffordshire and Loft Conversions

House extensions typically cost on average £16,000, whereas a loft extension is considerably cheaper as most of the structure is already in place. Loft conversions are a great way to add value to your property and create more space in your home; plus you can use the room for whatever your heart desires.

Adding another natural light source to your property through rooflights will save you money on heating bills in the Winter.

Loft conversions typically don’t require planning permission, simply follow guidelines from legislation brought into force in 2011 –

  • The maximum volume allowance is 40 cubic metres for terraced houses
  • This is 50 cubic metres for detached and semi-detached houses
  • The extension must not go beyond the roof’s existing slope at the front of the house
  • Mustn’t be higher than the roof itself
  • Not overhang the house’s walls
  • No verandas, balconies or raised platforms can be added
  • Side-facing windows must be obscurely glazed
  • All openings must be 1.7 metres above the floor

The only time you will require planning permission for a loft conversion is if you live in conservation or designated area, which can be obtained from your local council.
