"Lee and his friendly team did a fantastic job on my loft from start to finish, and I can't recommend them highly enough. The work was started & finished on-schedule, with minimal disruption, and completed to a very high standard. End result was a much better space than we were originally after, thank you!"
This Loughborough Loft conversion took place at the end of 2018. at the start of the job, the loft was merely a dark cold storage space for old boxes and Christmas trees. We began by Stripping of all the old roof tiles and cutting an opening to feed in supporting RSJ steels for the floor.
We the started building the dormer using 4x2 timbers for the walls and 8x2s for the flat roof. We then would ply the exterior of the walls in 11mm OSB sheets to make the walls much more sturdy and structural. We then did the same on the flat roof with 18MM sheets of OSB so we could then fit the rubber needed to make it watertight.
All of this was achieved on the first day of the job and we were ready to move on to roofing and installing floor joists on the second day.
Floor in, and we are able to start building stud walls inside for the bathroom and storage. Plumbers also in to first fix in the bathroom and radiators in the bedroom.
Insulation is next using the latest in insulation technology. The ceiling and walls are all now insulated, lathed and ready for plaster boarding. However electrician is now in to first fix all electrical items in the loft.
Staircase is now ready for installing and it begins with cutting out the ceiling of the second floor for Lee to begin fitting the stairs. Now an easier access has been made plaster boarding now commences. Plasterer now begins plastering ready for painting and carpets.
second fix now comes electricians and plumbers are back to finish fitting lights, switches, toilets and sinks. And joiner to finish wardrobes, skirting and doors.
