WHY SHOULD YOU USE ECOLOFT?

When we run out of storage space in the home we look to the garage or garden shed – but have you considered that the answer to all your storage problems is right above your head.

Your loft is often seen as an underused and undervalued space in the home. But with the right planning and design it can be brought to life.

Not only will you have a brand new bespoke, fully insulated storage space you will also help to increase the value of your home should you ever wish to sell in the future.

If you’re tired of tripping over boxes or hate having to fight through cupboards full of clutter an Ecoloft is the perfect solution!

What is building control?

Building control is our nation’s authority and any work carried out that requires a structural alteration should meet current building codes and regulation requirements.

Building Control ensures that buildings are designed and constructed in accordance with the Building Regulations and associated legislation, and they police all types of construction to ensure that work is completed to the required standard, and that all changes are registered.

What requires a building control inspection?

A building control inspection is required when:

  • Trusses are removed from the attic or loft space
  • Structural changes are made to the building
  • Conversions that will be used for habitable purposes
What is the difference between storage and a habitable loft conversion?

A storage conversion must only be used for storage purposes.

Non-habitable or storage conversions must not appear to be habitable and must have minimal fixtures and fittings. They must be only dry lined and not plastered and must have a fold away staircase not a fixed one.

Habitable spaces must have an appropriate means of escape and a minimum head height of 2 metres is required.

Habitable loft conversions and hobby rooms can be used as another bedroom.

This is because safety measures are put in place to ensure your loft conversion is just as safe as any other room in your house.

It’s important to note that all habitable loft conversions require building control and you should speak to our sister company ecoTrus.
