1. Is my roof suitable for conversion?
The roof space in most houses is suitable for conversion to an attic. Most housing developments in Malaysia typically have a higher pitched roof, providing more space for conversion to an attic. Another option is a roof extension, which will provide even more space and options for your living space including balconies and multiple rooms.
2. How much will it cost?
An attic conversion will cost substantially less than an extension to your house and can provide you with additional living or storage space for a fraction of the cost moving or extending. As an additional benefit to your project we supply our work on a fixed price contract.
3. How long will the work take?
Each conversion is different and the length of time will depend on the amount of work undertaken. A guide would be 6-12 weeks for duration of work.
4. Who will take care of the Local Council Application?
We have full architectural design and council liaison services and will take care of all the details of your council application and approval.
5. What are the Building Regulations?
The building regulations set standards for the design and construction of buildings, primarily to ensure the safety and health for people in or around those buildings, but also for energy conservation and access to and about buildings.
6. Are all attic conversion companies the same?
We are one of the pioneer attic conversion company in Malaysia and have been in business for over 10 years and have more than 18 year’s combined experience. As one of Malaysia’s leading attic design company we pioneered the modification of roof space into rooms. This process was then adapted to “on-roof construction” and includes other integrated roof shapes. We have searched the world for better attic ideas/design/ products to give our clients the finish and comfort they deserve.
7. Do I need to organize other trades like plumbers and electricians?
The Attic Room Design employs all trades to take your conversion from initial design through to completion. However you may appoint your plumber/technician if you prefer.
8. Will there be much disruption?
The Attic Room Design accesses the attic via the scaffolding on the outside of the property and builds the conversion to a near finished stage. At this point our workmen install the new staircase and the attic is plastered and the final details added. Generally 4 to 8 weeks access via the scaffolding and the last week we will need to access the conversion via the existing stairs / hallway.
9. Can I view any attic completed?
You may view our showroom to confirm our professional build quality.
10. What do I need to do?
In short – nothing. Everything will be dealt with on your behalf by The Attic Room Design.
11. Can you carry out any other work?
Yes, we are also general builders and can carry out any ground floor work or excavation that may be needed.
