Add Versatility and Space in Virginia With Attic Conversions

Attic conversions not only add versatility to your Virginia home and it also increases the floor space and re-sale value as well. You can have that office, studio, bedroom or just plain extra living space you have always wanted.
Depending on the layout of your attic you may be pleasantly surprised at what it can accommodate. While there may be quite a bit of construction necessary to covert your attic, you'll still save money as compared to adding a room.
Low ceilings and structural obstacles are common trouble spots for attic conversions. If you're uncertain what can be moved and what can"t it's a good idea to consult a contractor to help. Structural changes should be evaluated carefully.
It is critical that you think about all the results you want with your attic conversion. Consider which professionals you'll hire and whether you'll do any of the work yourself. It's a good idea to get an estimate of how much you think this project will cost before you begin. The little things can add up and it's easy to go over budget. Make sure to make a plan and stick to it.

Attic Conversions

When considering attic conversions keep in mind you will have to have a staircase, add some kind of window or windows, install electricity and possible even put in a phone line.
Other portions of the attic conversion to consider could include wall framing, ceiling, drywall, heat, air and plumbing if you need water or a bathroom. Plumbing and electricity are two main areas that should be completed by a professional. It may cost you more upfront but it can save you trouble later on.
Attic conversions of this size will call for a great handy man or a couple different tradesmen like an electrician, plumber, finisher, HVAC specialist and possibly others. You want to get estimates for each job and choose carefully when hiring a contractor.
The last steps will be preparations for all the finishing touches. Choosing the flooring, the paint, wallpaper and accessories are the fun part. It can turn your dull attic into the room of your dreams.
