When planning home improvements, it can be hard to decide which project is best, but Econoloft is here to help you make the right decision. With over 150 years of combined experience, we are proud to be loft conversion specialists with extensive industry knowledge. We specialise in loft conversions because we believe they are one of the most beneficial improvements homeowners can make in Richmond and the UK, offering simple, undisruptive construction and quality, versatile spaces. However, traditional house extensions remain popular and while they also offer various benefits, in many cases a loft extension is the better option, and on this page we explain why.
Whether our customers are set on attic conversions or trying to decide between an extension or conversion, we provide all the information and advice needed to make an informed decision. Among other reasons to build an attic conversion, here’s why a loft conversion could be best for you:
A Quiet and Versatile Space
No matter what kind of room you need, a loft extension can meet your requirements. From bedrooms and guest suites to bathrooms, playrooms, living rooms and home offices, loft conversions are suitable for an extensive range of uses. Some homeowners in Richmond and across the UK even install kitchens in their conversions. Furthermore, the position of loft rooms means they are quieter and more private than an extension, making them more suitable for some uses.
Attic conversions are generally much cheaper than traditional extensions, helping you improve your home for less. In addition, the extra insulation will help keep your home warm and can reduce energy costs. An attic conversion is also one of the best ways to increase the value of your Richmond home. Consequently, with careful planning and construction services from our loft conversion specialists, you can achieve your ideal space while saving money and adding to the value of your property.
Minimal Time and Disruption
Compared to house extensions, loft conversions are relatively quick and undisruptive projects, especially if you opt for a rooflight conversion. Because the main structure is already in place for conversions, building time is reduced, enabling our customers in Richmond and surrounds to get back to normal as quickly as possible.
Furthermore, Econoloft requires minimal access to your home because we access the loft space from the outside via scaffolding as much as possible. As such, you don’t have to worry about construction impacting on privacy or your daily life.
A considerable benefit of loft extensions is that they don’t eat into garden space. When homeowners choose to build a house extension, they must accept that their garden is going to become smaller. However, with a conversion from the loft conversion specialists at Econoloft, you don’t have to make that compromise. Our attic conversions give homeowners the space they need while allowing them to keep all their valuable outdoor space.
