The Benefit Of Building a Loft Room
A loft Room adds space to your home which is a great solution for a family who needs an extra bedroom, or for someone who wants office space. This will mean adding value to your lifestyle as well as adding to your property’s value at a fraction of the building costs.
-Building a loft room can decrease you building cost per square meter by up to R 1500/m2!
The reason that loft conversions are often cheaper on a price per square metre basis than conventional building, is that much of the structure you need is already in place. The space is there, you’re not adding an additional room, you have one in your roof already! Just use the space and turn it into a magnificent loft room.
If we’re true to ourselves we all would love more space within our homes wouldn’t you agree? There are numerous ways to increase the space within your home but with loft conversions there are several great benefits:
-Huge cost savings during construction.
-Add value to your home by up to 20% without the additional construction costs.
-Increase your floor space without using up valuable outside space on your property.
-Make money back on it immediately by renting the new space out to a student or lodger.
Don’t just take it from us, other property experts say that adding such things as a loft conversion is one of the best ways for adding value to your home. Market research has suggested your home can increase by 20% with adding space like this to your property at minimal costs. On average, your home value can increase by around R400 000 at a fraction of the building costs.
With a loft conversion it’s not just that extra room you gain – a well-planned conversion can provide additional storage underneath your new stairs and decrease the strain on the rest of the rooms in your home as well.
What’s more, by using ‘dead’ space to create a room, conversions do not eat into your home’s invaluable outside space as extensions can.
This is the one type of home improvement that can add so much to your property that costs so comparatively little.
