Loft Conversions In Kent
Improving your home is one of the most rewarding and exciting ventures you will take on in life, when you consider some of the benefits, joys and rewards of planning and extending your own property. Pickett and Bosch Loft Conversions offer a complete design and build service, from initial feasibility and design to the build stage.
A simple loft conversion would give you extra space without increasing the ground plan of your property. As much as 30% of your homes available space is in the loft. So it’s no surprise that a loft conversion is one of the best ways to add extra space to your existing house. Pickett and Bosch provide loft conversions in Kent and the South East of England.
Depending on the size of your loft, you could add an extra bedroom, children’s playroom, shower room or even a master suite.
With a little help and some professional expertise, your loft could be transformed into a usable living space without having to move.
Each Loft conversion is installed by our highly trained craftsmen whilst being closely supervised by our dedicated in-house project manager throughout the build process. Loft conversion is a complex and extensive project, and should be monitored and approved to meet current building regulations by your local authority. This is one area where you should not try to take short cuts. At Pickett and Bosch, our dedicated team will ensure your loft is properly designed and constructed to current Building regulation standards.
There are so many possibilities for you to consider when converting your loft, therefore at Pickett and Bosch we are happy to combine our experience with your needs and input to create the best design for you.
Based in Maidstone, we are centrally located in Kent and cover all areas of Kent and the South East of England.
To create extra bedrooms, bathrooms, play areas and hobbies room – to name a few – surprisingly a large percentage of Loft Conversions to fit these needs will only require Velux Window(s). This allows for less alterations within the roof space and therefore evidently the most cost effective way of doing so.
Dormers, Gables and New Roofs
However, at times the simple need of ‘gaining light’ is not the only issue when converting a Loft. Some people are not fortunate to have enough useful loft space. When a project like this arise, we then have to consider other possibilities and the next steps of design such as: building Dormers, altering a Hip roof to a Gable, or even completing an entire ‘roof off’ and creating a whole new roof.
We will take every project from feasibility to design to obtaining all approval’s from local council. In some cases planning approval is necessary but many do not realise that some projects can be built under ‘Permitted Development’ which is determined by percentage/ volume of the space you wish to create.
Loft Conversions are by far the best way to utilise unused space in your house, giving you an extra room and a return on your investment.
Pickett and Bosch can design and build your loft conversion giving you peace and mind that the project will be managed and completed in a timely professional manner.
The average cost of a loft conversion is £25,000 and that investment is nearly always returned on the value of your property
