Loft Conversion

This loft was converted so that an extra room could be added to the house. The process of this job took 7 weeks and involved clearing out the loft so the steel beams could be placed in to support the roof whilst works were being completed. New framing was built to cater for the dormer that was added, which transformed the loft into a room. The loft conversion was insulated and made waterproof, plus new tiling and felt was put down to accommodate for the new flat roof dormer. New windows were installed on both sides of the room, allowing more light to be able to come into the house. The electrics were added and plug sockets were put in along with down-lighters that could dimmer. Flooring was placed down and the walls were plastered and decorated, completing the project and being a successful loft conversion.

Services Used

Steel Work
Steel work is used to help support the existing building whilst other works are taking place. Steel beams were placed in the loft to help support the roof that was staying, as a flat roof dormer was being installed on the other side. Once the dormer was installed and the roof works were completed, the steel beams were taken down as the roof was structurally sound and safe.
Roofing
The structure for the new roof had to be built and it was all damp and waterproof, so that it was suitable to be used as a room. New tiling was laid down and felt was put on the flat roof.
Plastering and Decorating
Once all the main works were completed the decorating process could begin. The walls had plasterboard added to them and was plastered to ensure there was a smooth finish for the decorating process. The walls were painted white and blue, and a sprayer was used to create a flawless smooth finish.
