Do I need planning permission before beginning an attic conversion?
Usually attic conversions don’t require planning permission. However, there are a few exceptions, where planning permission is required. If you plan on putting up dormer windows or installing Velux windows on the front of the house you will need to seek planning permission.
If you wish to avoid the administrative process of applying for planning permission, we can help with the attic conversion design. We can avoid placing features in areas that will necessitate planning permission.
If I get my attic converted can I sell my three-bedroom house as a four-bedroom house?
Unfortunately not, the very reason that most Attic conversions don’t require planning permission is that the low roof means an attic conversion is classed as a non-habitable storage room. Therefore if you were to sell your property you wouldn’t refer to the attic as an extra room instead you’d refer to it as a converted attic. Still, a professionally converted attic is very attractive to buyers and will in-all-likelihood increase the overall resale value of your property.
Do I need architect drawings before converting my attic?
We are happy to work from architect drawings, however, our expert team can design the layout as part of our Dublin attic conversion package. Our experienced contractors have designed and constructed hundreds of attic conversions in properties all over Dublin.
