Crossley Street, N7
The opportunity to create more space
A three-storey terrace with a loft space ripe for conversion. A large bedroom was on the agenda for the client.
How we can achieve a conversion like this for your home
Touchstone Lofts can convert any loft and have done so all over London. A loft conversion in Crossley Street is a wise investment, there is a great return on your investment.
The client wanted a rooflight conversion with many Velux windows in the slopes. As the ridge height of the existing roof space was adequate, the loft could be converted without the need of a flat roof dormer.
The property was scaffolded and all activity was completed from the scaffold. There was little disturbance to the client, except for when the stairs were fitted – there was minimal disruption for the client to deal with.
The steels were fitted to the floor and the ridge as main supports and the floor structure was made. We used Rockwool insulation for sound, fire and heat retention and Ecotherm and Rectocil Polyisocyanurate (or PIR) insulation for heat retention and heat reflection.
Older lofts are renown for being too hot in the summer, the insulation we use prevents this, so your loft is the temperature you want it to be – not too hot if the sun is out.
All works are carried out to building regulation standards, there were a total of three inspections during the conversion. A building regulation certificate is provided to the client upon completion of the works.
After the insulation, Gyproc plasterboards were fitted followed by the plastering team.
The plumbers and electricians did the first fixing after insulation, then came back again after the plastering was complete.
The second fix carpentry team completed their jobs and did all the snagging works.
The customer was delighted with the final outcome. The huge room created was fresh and bright, with ample light.
