We’ve spoken before about finding the right loft conversion builder, but did you know that using specialist services can actually help you have a better experience and higher quality results? Here are a few reasons why.
Easy Planning Permission
While most refurbishments, loft conversions and extensions fall under permitted developments, you’ll still need to ensure your designs and the work taking place complies with these, or you may be required to submit a full planning application to your local authority. This can slow your project down, cost more and you may need to reconsider some of your design ideas if your plans are rejected. A specialist builder will have experience in this, and they’ll also find solutions when your build is a little unusual.
One of the ways to achieve the best results is to aim for a blend between what looks good and what’s practical. A loft conversion, for example, is quite niche in terms of how to get the most out of the space, so a specialist builder can help you use every nook and cranny to its full advantage. By choosing an expert, they’ll have seen many ideas you won’t even have thought of, finding innovative ways to maximise the space for its intended use, whether a bedroom, office or den.
Stress Free Builds
Undergoing building work on your property and keeping it worry free is often the holy grail of planning home improvements. Choosing a builder who is a specialist in the project you’re undertaking means you’ll always have an expert on hand to advise about anything from project lengths to liaising with your local council to ensure the work remains compliant with building regulations. Use their expertise to reduce hassle, right from the initial stages through to completion.
Cohesion between Trades
One of the biggest obstacles to achieving the best results on your build is ensuring the various experts involved liaise with each other. A builder who has specialist services for the project you’re undertaking may already have an all-in-one service, including designers who are qualified to produce architectural plans. This limits miscommunication and helps raise the expertise of the whole team as they thrive and grow together. A project like a loft conversion will involve roofers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, decorators and designers, so it only takes one loose cog in the wheel to affect the quality of the results. Using a reputable builder with access to reliable tradesmen ensures your build is on track from the start.
