The Benefits of Loft Conversion
More and more people are choosing to make use of their property's loft by converting the often-neglected space into a new living area. Here at JAS Timber, we offer an array of products designed to facilitate loft conversion projects, including roof windows, loft ladders and effective insulation solutions.
Loft conversion can bring with it numerous benefits and this edition of the JAS Timber blog reveals just some of them...
Perhaps the most obvious benefit of a loft conversion is that it provides more living space, helping to maximise the practical value of your home. A loft conversion is much easier and less expensive than building an extension, which can also reduce the size of your garden and compromise access. The new space could be used for anything you want, from a bedroom to a full-on home cinema!
A loft conversion will enhance the value of any property, making it more attractive to potential buyers. The exact value can vary based on many factors, including the property's location along with the extent and quality of the conversion. Research carried out by Nationwide Building Society revealed that a loft conversion that includes an extra bedroom as part of the project will increase the value of a property by an average of 20%!
Insulation is a crucial aspect of any loft conversion. A properly insulated home will benefit from more comfortable ambient temperatures indoors all year round, as the insulation will keep the air cool in summer and warm in the colder months. There will also be a considerable drop in energy usage, which provides substantial cost savings as well as being kinder to the environment.
A Room with a View
When you choose to install roof windows as part of a loft conversion project, you'll be able to enjoy an unrestricted view from your property. Roof windows allow natural light to flood the room, creating a sense of space and bringing proven health benefits. Just imagine gazing up through a roof window at night and enjoying a beautiful vista of stars..
