Loft Extensions


Having such a drastic change to your home can be daunting, but in reality it should be the cause for all types of excitement. Using that extra space in your home for something practical, e.g. a much needed extra room can transform any hassle into a new and different experience.

A List of Exciting Changes

However, the cost of this work does not come cheap, with prices of different types of extension ranging massively. The most basic is known as the ‘room in a roof’ starting at £15,000. This strategically involves insulation, a staircase, sky lights and many more features.  A dormer loft extension involves all of the benefits of a ‘room in a roof’ but increases floor space and can also mean the addition of a double bedroom and an en suite to be fitted. This could lead to an increase in price to about £35,000 – £40,000.

Lastly, ‘raising the roof’ type of extensions are a lot more expensive, as this involves gaining planning permission as it involves removing and rebuilding the roof to change the structure.  This costs around £40,000 and above.

Although prices are high, a major benefit of an extension is the value added to your home once all work has been done. Research has shown that adding a loft extension onto your house, can add the value of your home in the region of £22,000 to £45,000 depending on where you are in the UK – which is always great if you are thinking of selling in the near future.
