Loft Conversions Rotherham

Do you need planning permission for a loft conversion?

Loft extensions are normally considered ‘permitted development’ which means they don’t need planning permission, but sometimes if they exceed a certain space or change the look of the roof by more than an allowable amount, you will need to apply for planning. Normally, the company employed to build the extension will apply for any relevant planning permissions if they are needed.

Is your loft properly insulated?

The recommended depth of loft insulation is 270 mm, which is about a foot. If you have some insulation but it isn’t that thick, you don’t have to remove what you have already, you can just add some more; insulation does come in different thicknesses to allow you to do this. It is simple to check,  just pop up into your loft with a ruler and see if there is enough!
