We have a floored loft with only ladder access. We would like to investigate having stairs fitted and thepossibility of fitting a dormer window to make the loft a bedroom. We would like a free quote ideally to allow us to consider our options. Thanks very much julie loughlin
Hi Julie although the loft floor is already boarded this may not be up to the required building regs to use as a bedroom, so it may not be as simple as you think! Also you may lose space from another bedroom to get access for the stairs. The joists in the loft may need upgrading and RSJ's may also be required, this will all add to the cost. It maybe worthwhile contacting building control at your local council for some free advice. Ed
