This step by step tour will give you an idea of the different stages a loft converion undertakes.
We keep the area underneath the scaffolding clean at all times with regular sweeping. The skips we use are covered to stop rubbish blowing down the street.
Entering the Roof
In the early stages we do not open up the ceilings, this stops
any dust / dirt falling onto your stairs / landing.
All this work is done by accessing the small hole in front of loft.
The frame work of the dormer is built.
Each Beam is scured into place with heavy duty connecting striops which are drilled into place.
Ceiling / Ensuite Bathroom
The Ensuite framework is then erected into position and any pipework routes are worked out.
The felt is applied to roof making it weather proof!
The hot and cold feeds are run and connected to existing pipes.
It is at this point that the stair hatch is cut out of the floor. As the loft has been cleaned out the amount of dust / dirt is at a minimal. When the hatch is cut sawdust will fall through onto the landing below.
If any mess does fall through it is dealt with straight away. We hover the area below the hatch at regular points.
Then we add wooden strips to the front which the tiles are attatched to.
Velux Windows + Roof
Then the wooden beams are placed on roof ready for the tiles.
Also the electrics are wired in.
Then the base of the double shower is layed. This is concreted in place.
The Frame work is completed.
All pipe work is connected to the guttering.
