• Are all properties suitable for a loft conversion?

    No, although the Building Regulations do not specify a minimum height requirement for new rooms, one has to consider the practicality for the use of the proposed room. Minimum headroom is a requirement over the new staircase and this is often the governing factor when considering a loft conversion. We at Econoloft advise that you require a min height of 2.3m (7ft 6)  from the top of the existing ceiling joists to the bottom of the existing ridge board.  Econoloft offer a FREE feasibility study to potential customers. This involves a visit from one of our surveyors local to yourselves. Ring our freephone number 0800 269 765 to arrange a visit.
