Loft Extensions London – Why You Should Hire A Professional

Loft extensions London wide are ideal ways to create new living or storage areas within the home. Given that the space already exists, it can be tempting to consider doing the work yourself. However, while this may seem the quickest, easiest and cheapest route, it rarely turns out that way. There are numerous reasons why hiring a professional London roofing and building company is the better option. One of the main reasons to take this approach is that you benefit from the experience and expertise of the company you use. They will be able to deal with any eventuality that the build throws at them.

One such eventuality is planning permission. While few loft conversions require planning permission, there are occasions when you do need to get the agreement of your neighbours to go ahead with the conversion you have planned. If you are in a conservation area or there is the potential for bats or other protected species to have taken up residence in the loft, then again, you need the right expertise to move forward. Using a professional lofts and extensions London based company also ensures that the finished conversion adheres to building and fire safety regulations. This is especially important if you are going to use the additional space as a bedroom, bathroom or other extra living space.

A professional company that offers London lofts and extensions often also works out cheaper than taking a DIY approach. Such companies have all the experts they need either in-house, or know where to source them from other companies. This saves you time, money and effort in finding trades people to do the jobs you don’t have the expertise to carry out. This might include plumbers, electricians, and glaziers to install your windows. Professional companies offering loft conversions South London and beyond can also source materials at better prices. One of the reasons for this is that they can buy in bulk and use materials as required on different jobs.

A professional loft conversion and extension London based company can also provide a full planning and aftercare package, meaning that the build is more likely to go right the first time, and that if alterations or finishing touches are needed, they can return and iron out any little problems as the build settles.
