ROOF WINDOW CONVERSION

Typically a roof window or velux window conversion consists of structural main beam supports & a structural floor. This is because in nearly all cases the existing ceiling is not designed to carry the loads that a new room will create, a suitable amount of roof windows, purpose made staircase, electrical works including lights, sockets & mains wired smoke detectors & plumbing works if required.

All walls & ceilings are fully insulated & ventilated & covered with plasterboard & a plaster skim finish where specified, also skirting boards, architraves & doors are fitted. To comply with current building regulations a fire escape route or means of escape needs to be created. To achieve this, doors to all habitable rooms need to be upgraded to fire doors & this can be achieved by either removing & replacing the existing doors with fire doors or by using fire resistant paints & or varnishes which we will supply if required to be done by yourselves as part of the decoration process, although this can be carried out by ourselves if required.

Roof Windows and Conversions

OPTIONS

  • How much headroom do I have?
  • What is the room to be used for?
  • How many rooms do I need?
  • Will I need a bathroom or en suite?
  • Will I need heating?
  • Do I need to keep a certain amount of storage space?
  • Will I need any built in or fitted wardrobes?
  • Will I need any floor finishes fitted?
  • Will I need a full or part build?
  • Is my property listed or in a conservation area?
  • In what room shall I fit the staircase?

There are many different types of staircase with various layouts so even when space is restricted a space saver staircase can be used.

 

TYPICAL ROOFS

Nearly all roof spaces can be converted assuming there is sufficient headroom, & even in situations where this is not the case in some properties the ceilings in existing bedrooms can be lowered to achieve this, this can all be determined at survey stage if in doubt.

There are many types & shapes of roof structures whether you live in a detached, semi detached or terraced house or bungalow but most are either traditionally built, with timber ceiling joists & summer beam supports, rafters with purlin supports & various posts & braces to spread the roof loads, or a more modern trussed rafter design or w shaped design. Either roof can easily be converted as long as the roof is correctly supported in the various stages of the conversion.
