Real Cash in the Attic with a loft conversion

Loft conversions - Convert your loft into a usable room - perhaps a spare bedroom with ensuite, perhaps a playroom for the kids, perhaps a home cinema room? whatever you decide, one of the things that's probably put you off is the fact that many modern homes are built with trussed rafters.

Recently when I was putting the xmas decorations away for another year, when i pushed open the loft hatch, i remember thinking 'there's no way you could convert the loft with all those trusses criss-crossing the loft space like a load of emlarged timber W's'.

They support the roof differently to a conventional roof where large beams on pillars support the weight.

This used to spell the end of a loft conversion but not anymore. New methods mean you can now safely have a trussed loft converted into a fully usable room.

This is just one of the features of a new online home improvement quote website I came across that offers instant online loft conversion quotes.

You type in your house dimensions, select the shape and style of the present loft - trussed or conventional and it will give you a 'ball park figure' for how much it will cost to convert your loft without a saleman having to call.

It's a great online service and if you're looking into the possibility of getting your loft converted, then it's a great place to start.
