Loft Storage Rooms
A loft storage room is an ideal way to increase the storage space within your home without the cost of a full loft conversion. It’s a clean, dustproof, temperature regulated storage environment that will protect your belongings like any other room in your home.
The finished result gives a room-like feel, however, planning permission is not required as the profile of the roof has not changed and the room is not classed as ‘habitable’ (such as a bedroom). There are, however, building control regulations that must be adhered to which ensures the room is safe and fit for purpose.
We ensure the joists are strong enough to withstand a higher loading capacity or install new joists if required. We’ll also fit a safe, retractable loft ladder and install the correct level of thermal insulation, maintain airflow through adequate ventilation to avoid condensation. We do not encourage any habitable use of a loft storage room, so there are limitations on the finishes we provide. For example, we cannot install or extend any heating or plumbing systems into the loft space. We cannot skim, decorate or fit floor coverings in the loft.
