Attic Bedroom Conversion Process
Transforming the roof space into a bedroom, study, kids playroom etc.
Location: South East Queensland (Sunshine Coast to Brisbane to Gold Coast)
Are you in need of an additional room in your home? The benefits of an attic conversion are numerous. Firstly, a roof space conversion is a cost-effective option to create more space in your existing home whilst adding additional value to your property. Further, given that most of the work is conducted inside an area of the home that is not yet used, the normal disruptions and dust throughout the home is minimal.
If you are interested in an attic conversion, the first step is to get in touch with Roof Space Renovators. Creating an attic room is different in every house, so we need to conduct an onsite inspection in order to know what is possible in your home. Once we have an understanding of what you are aiming to achieve and the possibility of this, we can provide you with a quote. If you are happy with the price, we will then organise the structural engineer, plans and contracts including council if required.
In order to provide you with a fixed quote, there are a few things you will need to take into consideration prior to your discussion with our consultant.
- Access to the room – how will you access the room? Is an attic ladder sufficient or will you be requiring a staircase?
2. Ventilation – Do you want windows? If so, how many would you like? Are you wanting additional ventilation?
3. Will you be requiring power? Do you need power points, television ports, LED lights etc?
Once all the particulars are sorted and you are happy to go ahead, we will engage the structural engineer, plans and form a contract. We will then schedule in a commencement date. The building process usually begins primarily with the structural floor, which is built as per engineers specifications. Also clearing the roof space of trusses and framing the room. If you have chosen to have roof windows or other types of windows, these will be considered during the framing process.
Soundscreen Accoustic Insulation is laid under the floor and also behind the framing of the walls and the ceiling of the new room. This insulation is designed to limit noise transfer between rooms, through external walls and in two storey homes between the first and second floor. It also works as a thermal insulation.
Once the room has been built it is then time for lining the room. Gyprock (plasterboard) is the most common product used for lining but it is up to you which product you would like to use. Timber lining, pre-finished panelling, plywood and hardboard are common alternatives. When the access to the room is built depends on whether you are having a ladder installed or a staircase built. It also depends on access availability to the roof space during the build process and is something we will discuss prior. Apart from the electrician popping in and out and working in with the builders, the lining of the room completes the process.
You are then able to organise the floor coverings, paint and decorate the room. Then Enjoy! Our clients are always thrilled with the end result.
