Attic Renovations

Attic renovation is somewhat similar to the basement renovation when homeowners would like to create additional living space to use around the home. Before considering renovating your attic it's important to check its structural aspects.

  • Possible structural limitations of the roof area. Is there enough headroom to live safely in your attic?
  • Conditions of the joist for the floor area. Is it strong enough to hold additional weight?
  • How many frames you have in your attic? If you have too many frames it could be very costly to do anything with your attic.
  • Entrance and exit area. How are you going to access your attic? The stairs have to meet the code standards.
  • HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning)
  • Electricity and Plumbing. Do you want to have a bathroom in your attic and is it possible to make it there?
