A beginner’s guide to loft conversions

What is roof light loft conversion?

Roof light loft conversion is the most straightforward, cost-effective method of converting a loft space. This form of conversion doesn’t need any extensions or changes to the slope of the roof.

Provided you have a large enough loft space, roof lights make use of natural sunlight to convert a dark dusty attic into a bright, airy extra living area.

Is my loft suitable?

This type of conversion works best for larger lofts, those with enough standing floor space once the roof slopes are taken into account. Provided all structural requirements are met, your home will be suitable.

What do I need to prepare?

If you want to change the look of your home by remodelling your roof light, you should look for the risks and hazards that could possibly arise.

One of them which can cause serious harm to your wellbeing is asbestos. Asbestos is very harmful, therefore you shouldn’t try to deal with this situation yourself; this job should be left to the professional asbestos miners.
