Types of Loft Conversions Where Richway Enjoys Specialisation

Every home is unique. In the UK you can find houses with high ceilings like Victorian terraced houses and Georgian townhouses you also have homes with simple rooflines, like bungalows and terraced houses. Then, there are modern residential properties with flat roofs. A loft conversion shines in every style. Given the varying structure of each, it’s naturally unrealistic to consider one type of loft conversion in Chingford to suit all.

At Richway, when the matter concerns loft conversion in Chingford. Our architects provide plenty of options and recommendations. Mentioned below are the types we specialise in:
Hip-to-Gable Loft Conversion: If your property features a free-sloping side roof, you can build a hip-to-gable loft. The conversion extends the sloping hip outwards and upwards to build a gable side wall to accommodate an extra bedroom with a bathroom. You can even imagine a home office and a gym in one.
L-shaped Loft Conversion: When the intention is to expand the space to accommodate multiple rooms, an L-shaped loft conversion proves more suitable. It offers extra headroom—not just one, but many.
Rear Dormer Loft Conversion: It’s a popular loft conversion in the UK, built into a property’s back wall. To comply with the local council's regulations, it is stepped up which may appear flat, but it has a slight slope for rainwater to run off. The light open space converts to fits in a bedroom, bathroom, and even an airy office!
Velux Loft Conversion: It is, by far, the easiest way to convert a loft to create lighted-up extra space. If you are seeking a non-disruptive, cost-effective, and non-intrusive loft conversion the incorporation of Velux windows from the leading manufacturer does justice to the project.
Mansard Loft Conversion: Mansard comes from the French architect Francois Mansard. Usually located at the rear end of a house, it has a flat roof with a slight fall for water to drain into the gutter. This usable space created can be used as a lounge area, home office, playroom, bedroom, and bathroom.
At Richway, we enjoy expertise in all types of loft conversions. We go the extra mile to take care of nuances, like the construction of mansard lofts at the front of the property, sourcing official Velux windows from the manufacturer itself, and obtaining planning permissions from the local council in Chingford to leave you free of worries. Get us involved and watch your loft be converted into a usable space to make room for your dreams.

What to Consider When Getting a Loft Conversion Done in Chingford?

Chingford in the UK is characterised by a neighbourhood comprising Victorian terraced houses, Edwardian terraced abodes, and detached and semi-detached residences. In some parts, you can even find modern and contemporary houses despite their village-like atmosphere. They are all suitable for loft conversion, given their high ceilings, proper staircase location, simple rooflines and sufficient floor area.
Roof height: When building a usable space out of your loft, ensure a minimum of 2.2 metres is maintained at the highest point.
Roof structure: Check for the feasibility of loft conversion by looking at your roof. If it’s a traditional pitched roof, go for it without thinking twice. We provide more structural support for trussed roofs before converting the loft to a living space.
Available floor space: Larger the area, the more flexibility you will enjoy in terms of design and layout options. Having a desired conversion layout accommodated requires sufficient space.
Access: Think about access. While installing a staircase proves safe, one must ensure enough head height in the converted loft.
• Utilities: When fixing electrical wiring, plumbing and heating facilities in a converted loft, monitor their location. Based on this, you may have to modify or upgrade your interior.
Fire safety: Prevent mishaps from a fire breakout by installing smoke detectors, fire-resistant partitions and fire doors opening into the stairway, hallway or connected landings.
Soundproofing: Cut down noise, both internal and external. While the former demands mineral-based insulation on flooring structures, the latter calls for acoustic plasterboards and glazing products.
Insulation and ventilation: Have you thought about the comfort levels? It demands upgrading the insulation level.

Your Chingford house may or may not be suitable for a prompt loft conversion. Confirm its eligibility by consulting the structural engineers and architects of Richway. We will make onsite visits to examine your property features and advise you on the right style.

Types of House Extensions Delivered by Richway

Go for a house extension in Chingford and transform your semi-detached or detached property into a more usable space with a substantial area. Enjoy the freedom to create the layout from scratch with Richway and benefit from its increased functionality.
Rear Extension: As the term denotes, it extends the house at the back into the garden. Design it to transform your outdoor area or add more space to your home with this type of construction. With the right placement of doors and windows, you can enjoy the airy and open feel.
L-shaped Extension: Alternatively called a wrap-around extension, L-shaped builds are a combination of rear and side extensions. They wrap around the property, hence the name. Richway has built them in period and detached properties as they are ideal for increasing square footage.
Side Extension: Make the most of side alleys in your Victorian and Georgian-style properties with side extensions. Richways brings you this opportunity to widen your claustrophobic kitchen to a roomy kitchen diner. Of course, you can utilise this added 3 metres on average for serving other purposes.
