7 Reasons You Should Hire Loft Conversion Specialists
Most builders will undertake to build a loft conversion if asked, but there are many pitfalls to achieving the end result you want and by employing a builder who is not a loft conversion specialist, you may be getting yourself into deep water.
Sadly, when you are halfway through the job and everything has gone wrong, it is usually too late to go back; not only will you be stuck with a job going on for ages, you will probably never be happy with the result because you will only have bad memories associated with it.
It isn’t hard to get it right first time by hiring loft conversion specialists in London, or the surrounding area.
1. You will be able to inspect examples of their work.
If you choose a non-specialist, you will probably still be able to get testimonials or even see some of their completed jobs, but if you are not looking at a loft conversion, you won’t know if they are any good.
2. You will know that they will keep on budget.
If you use a builder who is not a specialist in loft conversions, they may not be very accurate when it comes to quoting for the job. The last thing you want is wrangles over cost halfway through your loft conversion.
3. There are rules and regulations that must be followed.
London loft specialists know all the ins and outs of the building regulations and these can be very complex. The 1996 party wall legislation is just the tip of the iceberg and no one wants their loft conversion to be stopped half way through because rules are being breached, even inadvertently.
4. Some jobs are very specialised.
Your builder may be an expert in bathroom installation but is he an expert at installing sanitary ware in a loft conversion? Water pressure issues and also the installation of small bore pipes and other plumbing tasks specific to loft bathrooms are not skills that every builder has at his fingertips, but loft conversion specialists in London do.
5. You don’t want a cowboy in your roof space.
Cowboy builders are very plausible and it is easy to be taken in. If they are doing a job like hanging a front door, it is not too serious if they are not very competent. Work in your roof done badly can be dangerous.
6. Time is important.
Having a loft conversion can be quite stressful for the householder. London loft conversion specialists have the expertise to get the job down to around 3 weeks. Any longer is unacceptable, but you might be looking at months if you don’t employ a specialist.
7. You’ll only do this job once.
Some work in the house is done more than once – new kitchen, new bathroom, double glazing – but a loft conversion is a one off. You need special project management and qualified staff working on getting it right.
