Richmond, United Kingdom, January 11th 2012 – There comes a time in most family’s lives when they need extra space. It could be the imminent arrival of a newborn baby or the older kids growing up and wanting more room. It could be a requirement for office space or for a new master bedroom. Whatever the reason for needing more space, loft conversions Richmond have proven a popular and useful way to enjoy this extra room.
Planning permission may or may not be needed for such a conversion. Dormer loft conversions will usually require planning permission while roof window extensions may not. It is important that anybody looking to have a conversion done first determines whether or not it is a legal requirement to gain planning permission for the improvements. The conversion will need to meet building regulations, however, because these ensure that the conversion is done safely and to meet healthy and safety standards.
Dormer roof and roof window lofts are the two main types of conversion available. While a flat roof is simpler and does not necessarily require planning permission, a dormer roof provides additional aesthetic appeal both inside and out. It also offers more room within the property and greater control over natural light levels. The dormer window can make a stylish and beautiful looking feature for the room, whatever that room may be.
