Truss Loft Conversions

Truss Rafter Loft Conversions

From the surprise reaction from many people we speak to on the phone, there appears to be a myth surrounding truss roofs.

Well let’s break this myth!

Yes, if you have a truss roof; you can have a loft conversion as long as you have a minimum 2.3 metres head height to start with.

So, in this article we will cover truss loft conversions and how we take a roof formed from trusses and turn it into extra living space.

A large proportion of our truss loft conversions projects come from clients who have recently bought a new build home and realise quickly they need more space to accommodate their family’s needs. Did you know however that trussed rafter roof construction has been used across the UK since the sixties.

The key thing required is a minimum 2.3 metres of head height in the middle of your existing loft space. Truss loft conversions are more complex than a standard loft conversion but a skilled company with many years of experience should have no difficulty converting your roof space such as Use Your Space Design & Build.

In most cases loft conversions fall under permitted development rights, however on some new build estates you may need to get planning permission or bear restrictions from the developer. Restrictive covenants have been put in place on some new developments and in some cases, work will need to be done to have this removed or gain permission.

Here at Use Your Space Design & Build we treat each truss loft conversion project like it was happening at our own home, we walk you through the whole process of how we carry out a truss loft conversion, we undertake all drawings and structural calculations which are then submitted to Building Control as part of our project management.

A truss loft conversion can be used for pretty much any purpose and some of the truss loft conversions we have carried out have included:

Truss Loft Conversion Solihull: This conversion formed a master bedroom, en-suite and walk in dressing room.

Truss Loft Conversion Leamington Spa: This loft was converted to create a home cinema and chill out family room.
