Roof reconstruction: What is needed to build an attic?

The roof reconstruction of a house includes many steps, so that the space becomes more beautiful but also more functional. Many times, however, it is not enough to change the layout or put new kitchen and bathroom furniture, to live happily and comfortably in the house. The problem of available space is an issue that concerns many people, especially those living in densely populated urban centers. Thus, during the roof reconstruction, not many people think about how they can expand their home by adding one or more rooms by building an attic.

A beautiful and affordable way to do this is to build an attic. With it, we make the most of the vertical space and can make a small room, such as a bedroom or office, or even an entire living room. But what is the process to do this? How will the attic be constructed in such a way that it is safe but also comfortable for the living of the tenants of the house?

Roof height

The first thing we need to see, before even starting the roof reconstruction of a house, is whether the height of the roof is enough to make the attic. Even in the smallest attic a person should be able to stand, so at least two meters are required. If the height is not enough, the roof will have to be raised, which increases the cost.

Utilization of space under the roof

The next decision in the construction of the attic is the space, which will be utilized. Generally, lofts range from 25 to 50 square meters, depending on the use that will be made of them. Based on this, the construction point of the attic and the placement of the stairs will be determined, in order to create a functional space between the attic and the already existing building.

Necessary studies by Clifton Roofers

Loft construction as opposed to simple home renovation requires specific studies to meet all modern standards for safe and comfortable living. Thus, it is necessary to make an architectural study and a study of the statics of the building and the implementation of current seismic legislation. In addition, hydraulic, electrical and mechanical installation will be required, so the corresponding studies will have to be done by Clifton Roofers.

The construction of the attic first includes the masonry, which is usually done with a double brick wall and internal insulation, unless the metal construction is chosen for reasons of statics and minimal structural burden of the building. The mechanical and electrical installation is also done, as well as the hydraulic works, if this is necessary. The work is supervised by the responsible engineer of Clifton Roofers, who undertakes, in addition to the study and gathering of all the necessary documents and the supervision of the workshops. To complete the attic, the insulation of the roof and the installation of soundproofing and thermal insulation frames are required.

So you are one of the lucky ones who has a roof and you want to use it. Why not; Converting a roof to an attic is a relatively easy process, as long as the space is suitable for the conversion work. The attic, after all, is something we all dreamed of living as children when we saw it in the movies. So find out what you need before proceeding with the work and expenses.

Why turn your roof into an attic?

In addition to realizing your childhood dreams, turning a roof into an attic is still an extra space in the house.

This way it is easy to separate the children’s rooms, or to create a “sanctuary” for relaxing. If the space is large, even a small independent house can be created for the older members of the family. Use every bit if you want to reconstruct your roof and you will not lose!

Clifton Roofers advise that by converting a roof into an attic, the total value of your home increases by 20%.
