Following this, you’ll need to measure the tallest part of your loft. The minimum required height for a loft conversion is 2.2 metres. If your head height exceeds this, you’ll likely be able to go ahead with your conversion.
As well as height, it’s important to determine whether your roof is made up of rafters or trusses. Rafters run along the edge of the roof and leave hollow, triangular space; this is the most ideal roofing for loft conversions. On the other hand, trusses run through the cross-section of the loft. Though converting a loft with trusses is doable, it will require extra structural support and incur extra cost.
Finally, you’ll need to think about the floor below the loft as you’ll need to assess staircase placement. Staircases need to be accessible and will often occupy a large chunk of the room, so this needs to be considered prior to any conversion.
