Adding A Natural Light Source
Velux windows and even Dormers let in much more light than the other windows in your home. They are much less likely to be blocked by other houses or trees on the street outside.
This means loft conversions can let in the maximum amount of sunshine into the rooms they create thanks to the height, positioning, and angles of their windows.
As a hassle-free way of building, loft conversions cannot be beaten. 95% of the work is carried out without any intrusion into your living areas. The “breakthrough” to allow access from the new staircase can be done in a day and the dust restricted to a minimum. On average most loft conversions take from between 4 – 6 weeks to build, up to 2 weeks quicker than a single story ground floor extension. So the intrusion into your home and family life is kept to a minimum.
