Loft conversions

Loft conversions

Why struggle for living space when you may have one of the largest expanses of space in your house or business currently designated for that motley collection of boxes containing all that “I may need that one day” ‘stuff’ in your attic?  Clear it out and release yourself! Liberate the space and make a place!

 

There are many businesses out there providing loft conversions and its easy to see why as the benefits are clear;Loft conversions 7202

 

  • Extra space for an office or a bedroom for family and friends… or just a place for you to relax and get away from it all…
  • An investment, adding value to your property if now is not the time for you to move…
  • An alternative, just allowing you to live in the place where you wish to stay…
  • The environment, as conversions reduced the demand on new housing…

 

While we recognise the benefits we also urge caution: whatever the reason behind a conversion care must be taken to preserve the character of the building. At South Hams Roofing we recognise that while a dormer window may provide more room, what you gain in space and light may well be at the cost of the character of the home.

 

For this reason it’s important to bear in mind how various solutions will affect the balance of the building, how the project, when completed, will look and feel, particularly for a property of any age where it is important to match the geometry and balance. In addition to creating space more sympathetically, we will also source and use materials to match those already used wherever possible and in some cases this may require the sourcing of old, reclaimed tiles and slates which are no longer available.

 

In short we are very happy to visit you and to advise you on the options that you have when considering a loft conversion without ruining the aesthetic balance of your home.
