The access to your roof is another important aspect of the loft that you should not overlook. If the existing stairway does not meet the required standard, then you have to rebuild it to meet the required standard. If the roof has no stairway before, you should build a new one according to the standard required. Effort is made in attic conversion to ensure that rooms built are spacious and that they also give the occupant enough headroom. Therefore, before you start the project, there is a need for you to check if the available empty roof space will be enough to create a roomy loft with good headroom. Proper roof insulation is needed in every attic. The roof insulation is usually placed between the ceiling joists.
Depending on the layout of your attic you may be pleasantly surprised at what it can accommodate.
