Save the Costs of Moving
One of the main ways our attic conversions save Orpington customers money is by avoiding the expense of moving house. If you want a bigger house but only need one extra room, a conversion is the perfect way to go because you can use a loft extension for a bedroom, bathroom, office, entertainment space or any other way you like. This is a much cheaper option when you consider the cost of upsizing to a house with just one extra bedroom. For example, in Greater London moving to a house with one more bedroom can add £110,000 to your mortgage.
In addition, our loft conversion specialists save you the cost of agency fees, stamp duty, survey costs, moving costs and other associated expenses.
Cheaper than an Extension
If you’ve decided to extend your home in Orpington, loft conversions are the cheapest option. This is because, unlike an extension, the structure is already in place and in many cases our loft conversion company will only need to make minor alterations. This also makes attic conversions one of the quickest home construction projects.
Plus, a loft extension offers a versatile room which you can use any way you wish, making them a realistic alternative to house extensions.
A considerable benefit of loft conversions is that they improve the energy efficiency of your home in Orpington or the surrounding areas. Our loft conversion company achieves this by insulating your conversion with high-quality products from brands such as Kingspan and Celotex.
Proper insulation minimises heat loss through the roof, keeping your home warmer and reducing the amount you need to spend on heating.
Although the initial cost of loft conversions may concern you, when you consider the return on your investment, it is definitely worth it. When carried out by loft conversion specialists, a loft extension can add around 20% to the value of your Orpington property and potentially more if you incorporate a double bedroom and bathroom.
In addition, the enjoyment and benefit you get from the extra space are enough to make attic conversions worthwhile, even without considering the extra money you will make if you decide to sell your house.
