If you live in a bungalow, you may have considered a loft conversion as a means of increasing your living space and property value. Perhaps you have a growing family and need extra bedrooms, or maybe you’d like to rent out the top floor and earn a passive income. Either way, a bungalow loft conversion is an ideal investment. Our team are happy to provide you with any advice regarding your available options, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions.
In bungalows that were built before 1960, the loft space is usually large and cavernous, making them perfect for conversion. Many bungalows, however, were not designed to support the load of additional rooms in the loft, so you may require some underpinning work or structural support. Our conversion experts will be able to help advise you on the best way to move forward.
The conversion process is similar in a bungalow as it is in a 2-storey house as the required headspace and structural integrity is much the same. However, there are certain things to consider with a bungalow that aren’t relevant in a 2-storey house. For example, in multi-storey homes, new staircases must be fire protected, which isn’t always possible in a bungalow. Instead, an escape window should be installed in order to meet safety regulations.
No matter how you plan to use your bungalow loft conversion, it’s more than likely that you’ve got the space to make it happen. Every property and project is unique, but with the help of our team you can achieve a conversion that you’re proud of.
