Ensuring A Safe Working Enviroment For Loft Conversions Portsmouth To Work In
If you are altering the roof height or shape (which may be the case if you have to raise it for headroom), you will also need planning permission from your local council.
To help reduce unwanted noise, the walls and floor around any new bedrooms will need to be insulated to reduce sound transmission. Introducing timber studwork with mineral fibre insulation will allow Loft Conversions Portsmouth to achieve excellent insulation levels and it can be covered with sound-rated plasterboard.
Altering Roof Structures In Portsmouth
If you happen to live in a conservation area, or if your roof space isn't tall enough, getting planning permission may be more complicated. Bear in mind that it's likely that structural elements will need to be altered to allow for circulation within the room and roof windows of your loft conversion.
Did you know that any new floor joists added as part of your loft conversion will need to offer at least 30 minutes worth of fire protection, which could mean replastering the ceilings in those first floor rooms below. As part of the fire safety upgrade for your loft conversion your stairways should lead to a hall and an external door.
