Attic remodeling tips


If you feel that your house have limited space, converting your attic is one of the best solution. Remodeling your attic into a finished room is less expensive than adding a living space in your home. But before heading with the plan, you need to check first the space of the attic, ventilation, lighting, and the capacity of the floor.

The first thing to consider is the accessibility of the attic. Some attic has folding stairs to get in. With this, you need to find a space to have a permanent staircase for easier access. The ceiling must also be high enough to have adequate ventilation and insulation. Check if the attic has enough natural light. Add windows or install skylights for appropriate light to get in. Lastly, you need to ensure that the floor is strong enough to accommodate additional weight for furniture and fixtures.
