Loft Conversions in Bristol | House Extensions Versus Conversions

Are you thinking of embarking on a home improvement project for your Bristol home? Looking for a domestic builder that offers property extensions, rooflight conversions and other property renovation services? Look no further than MRP Construction, a team of local builders with more than a century of combined experience. On this page, we will be comparing the benefits of these two house renovation services, weighing up three different factors that homeowners should bear in mind.

If you would like to read reviews of our services in the South West, we have a testimonials page which we encourage you to visit. Our new home builders are always happy to answer any questions that you may have about our work.

The three factors that we will consider when comparing loft conversions and house extensions are:

  • Added Value

  • Space Considerations

  • Total Disruption

Added Value

When comparing the two projects, the total value they could add to your property should be an important factor. If you are simply extending your home to fit in a small bathroom, you are not going to see the same returns as if you turned your empty attic space into a brand-new master bedroom.

As both projects can be similar sizes, it is fair to say that they both have the potential to add a lot of value to your home. However, the fact that loft conversions are always at the top of your house makes them better candidates for the all-important extra bedroom, and they do not take up that crucial outdoor space like house extensions do. Our domestic builders agree that projects such as rooflight conversions are often the better bet when it comes to added value.

Space Considerations

One of the best parts about a loft conversion is that it makes use of existing space. By turning an empty attic into a new room, you do not have to sacrifice any outdoor space as you would with an extension. This is a huge advantage, as garden space is highly prized and increasingly rare in urban areas. We always recommend a conversion if you have an unused attic.

Total Disruption

This is a complex factor to consider, as both projects are significantly disruptive. Conversions involve a notable amount of scaffolding to provide access to the roofline, which can have a big impact on your day-to-day life. They can, however, be much shorter in duration than house extensions, which can take months and effectively shut down your kitchen area.
