A qualified construction team like the Barnet Loft Compnay, should be employed to build your loft. The company should take care of all the permits and related paperwork for the construction. The architect and the construction team should take into consideration the following items when planning and building a loft conversion:

 

  • Structural Strength - If the loft is originally used for storing light items, then there is a need to build a new floor. The existing ceiling joists are not capable of bearing the load of an additional floor. Changes in the roof structure have to be considered and the load bearing capacity of existing walls, beams and posts re-computed too.

 

Fire Code - The floor, walls and doors of the loft conversion should be at least 30 minutes fire-resistant according to UK Building Code. Staircases should be enclosed of 30-minute fire-resistant walls too. The bathroom need not be fire resistant. If the loft has a dormer window, the exterior should be able to resist the spread of fire for at least 30 minutes.

 

  • Fire Escape - As staircase design will vary due to space constraint, the UK Fire Code specify that a staircase should be near or opens directly to an exit point and not to a room.

  • Ventilation - Even if natural ventilation is feasible in loft conversion, mechanical conversion is still required under the roof tiles to prevent condensation. Ridge vents should be placed in strategically to ventilate the roof space above the ceiling.

  • Weather Resistant Materials - The loft's roof and walls should be made of material that would keep the rain, snow and sun out but keep the heat (or cold) in.
