Raising the Roof with Loft ConversionsRaising the roof with loft conversions

Whether it’s for an extra bedroom, bathroom, office space or personal gym, loft conversions are a great way to add value to a customer’s home. 

Your customers also value their wellbeing and comfort levels more than ever, so here we’ll discuss the various steps you can take to make loft conversions as comfortable as possible.


Light is an important factor for any space, but it’s even more crucial for loft conversions, as lofts will naturally be very dark. Natural light is really good at helping improve personal wellbeing and helping your customers feel at home in a space. It provides vitamin D, helps with cardiac function, sleep pattern, levels of focus, and makes us happier. Therefore, you should definitely try to incorporate more light in these spaces. 
Skylights are the most suitable option for loft conversions. VELUX INTEGRA® electric top-hung roof windows are a perfect solution that provide a sleek design while offering multiple operational benefits. With an electronic system, your customers will be able to open their windows at the touch of a button. 

Combine this with the VELUX ACTIVE® technology and you can offer your customers the ability to further control their climate. This system monitors the temperature, humidity and CO2  levels in the room, and will open and close the roof windows to regulate the climate, based on your customer’s personal preferences.


Fresh air is also essential to our health, we all know that! Loft conversions can be stuffy spaces and so they should have good levels of ventilation. By suggesting ventilation systems, you can make loft conversions more convenient for your customers, as they won’t have to rely on opening windows to control the internal air flow. Instead, these pieces of technology automatically allow for a continuous flow of fresh air, preventing unnecessary external noise pollution and reducing the risk of allergies.
The UnoHab single room heat recovery unit by Airflow is an advanced product designed to offer such benefits and more. Unlike more traditional ventilation systems, which use separate ducts to distribute the supply and extraction of air, Unohab is a decentralised mechanical ventilation solution that removes the need for ducting. With multiple modes of operation, the system can be used in various ways, such as bringing fresh air into a space for improved ventilation, drawing out hot air to cool rooms in summer months and even bringing in fresh air to dry out wet rooms. With its heat recovery mode - which switches between air supply and extraction each minute - your customers can also improve their thermal efficiency by 88%, beneficial if they’re looking to reduce their heating bills!


Finally, if you’ve ever been in a loft conversion, you’ll know that they have very poor temperature control and you’ll be using specialist insulation to moderate the temperature for your customers.
The ISOVER insulation range by Saint-Gobain is a great choice. Available in a range of sizes and specifications, there’s a solution for any loft project. The uniqueness of the ISOVER range is its sustainability credentials as it’s made from recycled materials and over 75% of its’ waste is recycled – a fantastic selling point! And there’s an added bonus for your customers, too, as they’ll be able to save up to 30% on their heating bills.

Creating more comfortable spaces is a good way to keep your customers happy, and help improve your reputation for providing a quality service. For more information or guidance, go to the Jewson hub, visit our expert page on loft conversions, or get in touch with your local branch
