Ensuring A Safe Working Enviroment For Loft Conversions Bradford To Work In
There is no doubt what so ever that you will need to gain building regulation approval for your conversion.
Your new floor needs soundproofing, and this is easily achieved by laying a mineral fibre quilt between the joists. If you are worried about noise from your neighbours use the heavier, denser sound insulation quilt and not the lighter thermal insulation material, which is of no help here.
Altering Roof Structures In Bradford
Without the roof space free for water tanks and plumbing, the heating and hot water system in your home may have to be replaced with a sealed system. Bear in mind that it's likely that structural elements will need to be altered to allow for circulation within the room and roof windows of your loft conversion.
The new floor in your home will need at least 30 minutes of fire-protection, which could mean re-plastering the ceilings below it and the loft room will have to be separated by a fire door, either at the top or bottom of the new stairs. Remember that it is often necessary to insulate party walls — both against heat loss and noise.
