Truss roof Loft conversions

Roof Rooms are experts in truss roof conversions and have converted literally hundreds of truss roofs over the years, as with all loft conversions the structural element is crucial but as most properties with trussed roofs do not have internal load bearing walls, the structural element is vital and must be assessed by a competent structural engineer who has experience in this field. There are several options to overcome this hurdle and Roof room’s engineers will assess the property to find the correct solutions which are then passed by building control.
