Can your loft be converted?

The First step In order to have a Loft Conversion that meets building regulations is the minimum head height requirement we have in place. (2.2) meters or 2200mm, needs to be achievable in an existing loft space (Note: this height dimension is Blueprint Lofts min requirement as other companies may be different). This dimension needs to be taken from the top of your existing ceiling joists to the underside of your existing ridge board, If you require assistance please call us on 01942 881 309 for further help.

 

If you do not Have 2.2 meters do not give up give us a call as we may be able to lower your existing first floor ceiling height to gain more loft height, Call Us Now To Discuss.
