Are attic conversions worth it?

Attic Conversions are one of the most common home improvements we see here in Dublin. An excellent way of adding additional space to your home and utilizing what is already available, attic conversions have seen a steady rise in popularity in recent years. 

So, if you’re considering converting your attic, you’ve come to the right place.

Here at 1st Choice Builders, we pride ourselves on our ability to deliver the best results possible.

So, you’ve decided an attic conversion is the right choice to add value to your property. However, when considering an attic conversion, there is one question which seemingly crops up time and time again.

Is an attic conversion worth it?

Attic Conversions not only provide you with additional living space, home office space, or even an additional bedroom, but they can also add long term value to your home. Converting your attic is also a far cheaper alternative to looking for a new, bigger home. So why not make the most of the space available to you?

Is my house suitable for an attic conversion?

Attic Conversions are an excellent way of adding extra storage space or living space to your home. Here in Dublin, we’re quite used to seeing a wide variety of house designs, not only in terms of layout, but also in terms of size and indeed shape. These differences provide us here at 1st Choice Builders with not only challenges, but also opportunities. By and large, mid-century houses here in Dublin have roofs which are easier to work with than those of houses built by local authorities in the 40s, 50s & 60s. Despite this, it is our job here at 1st Choice Builders to find a solution, no matter the problem.

Do I need planning permission for an attic conversion?

In most cases you do not need planning permission for an attic conversion. This comes as very welcome news to property owners as it considerably lessens the amount of stress involved in deciding whether to pursue your dream attic conversion as opposed to a home extension. However, in some cases, if you wish to use your attic space as a bedroom, you may require planning permission. 

Overall we feel attic conversions are the perfect solution to not only adding extra space to your home, but also adding long term, lasting value.
