If the attic height is smaller, we have ways to expand the rooftop or find other options for you.

Key design factors when considering an attic conversion
Attic Conversion – insulating & air conditioning: the attics tend to get very hot, therefore, it’s critical to ensure the enclosure is properly insulated and shielded from the Houston heat. Air conditioning the attic is a critical design consideration. As part of the cost estimates, we plan and think through the design requirements to leverage your existing HVAC system to cool and heat this extra space.
Attic Conversion – attic walls & ceilings: as part of the designing of the attic space, we have to consider the materials needed to convert the attic space into the type of living area per your requirements. Living areas, storage areas, bathrooms, bedrooms — all of this requires sheetrock, taping, floating, ceiling, tiles, baseboards, trims, etc. Also, consider design to include built-in shelves and sitting areas to maximize the space.
Attic Conversion – lighting, electrical & plumbing: as part of the planning and design process, it’s important to ensure all electrical and plumbing codes are followed to ensure proper installation of electrical outlets, plumbing work necessary per your project requirements, and fighting for space. Ideally, best to implement recessive lighting in the ceilings for aesthetic and functional use of the space.
Attic Conversion – flooring: Flooring is an essential aspect of converting into a wonderful living space. Floors in the attic require proper floorboards and then going over the area to ensure there is no squeaking. Once the squeaking is addressed, thereafter the flooring should be leveled before the final flooring is added such as carpet or tiles. We recommend adding floor insulation to reduce hearing footsteps.
Attic Conversion – Windows & skylights: The attic can be dark without windows and skylights. Attic windows and skylights should be watertight, insulated, high-quality materials. The installation of windows and skylights is especially critical to be handled by professionals with significant experience to ensure its weather-resistant to hot & cold weathers, heavy rains, high winds, and hail storms.
Attic Conversion – Stairs to the attic: Most attics have a standard pull-down steps to get to the attic area. As part of the design of the attic space conversion adding a stairway and connecting the space to your existing home for the best functional and flow is an important factor to consider.
