The vast majority of homeowners across the country would like to add an extra room to their homes but are put off due to the costs involved. A decent extension from a highly regarded builder can end up costing tens of thousands of pounds and that’s without all the red tape that comes as standard when trying to get planning permission. A loft conversion is one way to get around this, but of course, only if your property is suitable. If you live in or around Bath, where space is at a premium you might consider a loft or cellar conversion as an alternative to a full-blown extension. Contrary to popular belief, the loft or basement conversion cost in Bath is not as much as you may think. Local builders are eager to offer competitive quotations for home conversions and can also assist with:
- Design and Space Maximisation
- Bespoke Carpentry
- Interior Wall Removal
- Provide Advice about Damp Proofing
A local builder is a preferred choice for home improvements as they know the local area, the local buildings and more often than not the local people as well.
Finding a Great Builder in Bath
In the absence of any recommendations from others, you will probably start your search for a conversion expert online via a search engine or local business directory. By typing in the relevant keywords e.g. ‘Basement conversion + location’ you should be presented with a list of local firms who specialise in this type of work. You can then check their credentials and pricing and hire them for your conversion project.
