Loft Extension in South Woodford Ext. Bedroom - 5 Reasons to Convert Your Loft in Winter

A loft conversion can be an ideal way to increase the space in your home, allowing you to stay in the home you currently know and love, and removing the need to lose garden space by building an extension. Along with this, converting your loft can increase the value of your property by up to twenty per cent, making it an ideal long-term investment. Among these reasons to get a loft conversion, it is also one of the least disruptive options when it comes to doing major extension work on your home. Although you might think that spring or summer is the best time to get a loft conversion done, there are lots of reasons to consider having the work carried out through the colder months. Here are the 5 reasons to convert your loft in winter. 

Better Chance of Booking

If getting your loft conversion is one of the main priorities for you when it comes to transforming your home into the perfect space for you and your family, then don’t let the season put you off. In fact, booking your loft conversion for throughout the winter could mean that you are in with a better chance of getting it done sooner. This is because there are likely to be more slots available, due to it not being the most popular time of year to get this project carried out. 

Prevent Heat Loss

Booking your loft conversion with a reputable company will give you peace of mind when it comes to your energy bills. If you are concerned about your energy bills being significantly higher while the work is being carried out, particularly with the current cost of living crisis, then don’t panic. The loft conversion will be properly sealed before any exterior work is done, so that heat loss is prevented. 

Start Saving Money Sooner

The sooner you get your loft conversion completed, the sooner you can start saving money on your energy bills. Getting it done in the winter rather than waiting until the summer could mean that you end up paying less on a monthly basis to heat your home this winter. This is because your loft will be thoroughly insulated with winter loft insulation as part of the conversion process, and less heat will escape your home this winter, allowing you to pay less for energy.

Can Be Done in Any Climate

While most people don’t typically start thinking about having a loft conversion done when the weather starts getting colder, the good news is that this project can be done in any climate. When starting a loft conversion, the good news is that you don’t have to compromise on keeping your house cosy and warm throughout the process. A good builder will know how to do the loft conversion the correct way and ensure that your house is a warm, comfortable space for you throughout, no matter how cold it is outside. 

Enjoy Your Summer

Finally, getting a winter loft conversion will free up your time in the summer to do the things that you enjoy. Instead of worrying about the loft conversion, when you can get it done, and prepare your home for it, you can spend your summer enjoying holidays with your family or simply sitting outside in the garden for barbecues and sunbathing. Whatever you decide to do with the loft conversion, whether it’s a master bedroom with an en-suite, a home office, or a cinema room for your home, you can make the most of it in the summer when you get it done over the colder months.
