At least once in our lives, everyone has probably considered taking on a large-scale home DIY project such as an attic conversion. After all, there’s nothing better than putting in our own effort and seeing the fruits of our labour. It may seem tempting to take on the building project yourself at first. However, there are several reasons why we would recommend hiring a professional attic builder instead. Beyond their experience, there are other benefits to hiring them which we will explore below.
1. Professional Experience & Service
Attic builders have the necessary training and experience to provide the highest standards of service. The proper knowledge and skills are crucial in a construction project of this scale. This is to ensure the new space is structurally sound and safe. The Attic Group is home to a team of fully qualified and trained professionals from multiple trades and disciplines. From our sales consultants to carpenters, each team member is well-equipped to offer valuable advice about your attic options, guaranteeing that your project meets your needs.
2. Quality Materials & Workmanship
Hiring a professional attic builder can bring access to a wide range of high-quality materials and tools unavailable to the average DIY enthusiast. With these materials and tools also comes the knowledge about where to use them for a particular project, ensuring that your attic is built to last. All our products and services use high-quality materials that are both stylish and display quality workmanship.
3. Council Approvals & Building Regulations
Many large-scale renovations or additions to your home may require your local council’s approval. It can already be confusing to determine whether you need approval in the first place. This is even before the complicated process of seeking permits if approval does become necessary. Moreover, all construction is required to adhere to a set of building codes that can also be difficult to follow if you are not qualified. Hiring a professional such as the Attic Group can streamline this process as they will take on the responsibilities of seeking approvals and preventing potential legal concerns in the future.
4. Reduces Costs
Hiring a professional attic builder will save you money in the long term. This is especially true if you have no prior experience with any construction. Attempting to complete the project yourself increases the risks of property damage, setting you back financially due to the repairs and delays. With several decades of experience, the Attic Group is well-suited to handle your conversion within a reasonable timeline while meeting your budget.
5. Adding Value To Your Home
Adding an attic space is a great way to expand the potential of your home. The cost of a full-scale attic conversion is often outweighed by the value it adds. Whether it’s a new living room, bedroom, or storage space, renovating your attic can make your home more attractive to potential buyers. A professionally built attic will be of higher quality, also increasing its resale value.
Hiring a professional attic builder offers several benefits, whether it’s reducing stress about damage or experiencing guaranteed expert service and advice.
