Planning Loft Conversion – Getting The Right Support

Planning loft conversion work is a multi-stage process that can become quite complex without the right support. While you may have a clear idea of what you want to achieve, the end result depends on a number of factors, including the structural integrity of your building and passing the building regulations.

The easiest way to ensure that your loft conversion plans go as planned is to hire an expert. For this type of conversion, you need an architect with experience in designing and planning residential extensions and conversions. The regulations and considerations are different for residential properties to those required for commercial buildings. To start your search for the best company to draw up your house extension plans, start by asking for recommendations from family, friends, and neighbours who have had similar extensions completed. This will provide you with a short list. Next, check out each of these companies and ensure that they work in your geographical location. For those that do, take the time to look at their website and see what they offer. Also, check how they price their services. Do they have a fixed fee for the work regardless of any problems, or do they charge for each step individually? A fixed fee may seem more expensive, but should you require plans to be modified or redrawn it could save you money in the long-term. Ask for references from any companies that you contact and discuss the experience and expertise of their team. It is also a good idea to find out whether they complete all of the work themselves, or whether they ever sub-contract any of it.
