When you need more space but don’t want to move, why not consider a loft or attic conversion from our team in, Yorkshire. The conversions provided by Ergo Construction are cost-effective, fast, and ideal for creating a fully functional, usable space. Whether you want an extra bedroom, bathroom, or creative space, we can help you to utilise an unused space and make it something amazing!
With a range of options available, we’re sure there’s a solution for everyone. The most appropriate option will depend on your existing attic space and our skilled team can advise you on what’s best after inspecting the space. Some of the most common conversions we provide in Harrogate and the surrounding areas are:
Variety of Styles
Dormer | With a slight extension that projects vertically from the roof, dormer conversions provide extra headroom as well as floor space.
Hip to Gable | By straightening the sloped end of roofs, we create useable internal space which can meet all kinds of requirements.
Roof Light | This style maintains the existing loft shape and layout. Installing windows into the roof and strengthening the floor creates an effective space. Roof light conversions require your existing loft to be big enough to live comfortably in the room without structural alterations.
Loft conversions provide a variety of home efficiency benefits, as well as being relatively cheap to run. Attic conversions generally include large windows which offer plenty of natural light and this means that there is less need for artificial lighting during the day. This, in turn, can save you money on your energy bills.
During conversions, we make sure your space is properly insulated. This minimises the amount of heat loss from the roof, keeping the loft cosy during winter and reducing household bills. This insulation also means customers will not need to spend much more to heat the new room because it will retain the heat that has risen from the rest of the house.
Due to the added efficiency and modern space they provide, loft conversions are a popular feature of house renovations.
Often, loft conversions fall under permitted development, meaning you do not need planning permission. This saves both time and money, allowing customers in Yorkshire to achieve their ideal spaces relatively quickly.
However, some projects, such as hip to gable conversions, require approval before work begins. This is because they drastically alter the appearance of properties. With years of experience in the industry, we advise on necessary applications and regulations, ensuring all projects meet the highest standards.
