Many Glebe homeowners are unaware that the space in their roof cavities may be utilised as a storage room or, with a little more effort, an additional bedroom or home office.
With attic conversion, you can turn your roof space into something functional and purposeful. AtticPlus can help you plan and complete your attic conversion in Glebe.
Attic spaces can be as plain or elaborate as you wish. We construct simple attic storage spaces and more elaborate high-grade dust-proof attics with retractable stairs.
AtticPlus can help you turn your roof space into a secure storage area for fragile, expensive, and valuable objects.
Benefits of Attic Conversions
Attic conversion in Glebe benefits those who work from home, either as independent contractors or as employees who are permitted to work outside their regular office.
Having an office space separate from the living spaces makes sense if you’re tired of paperwork and files taking over the dining room or spare bedroom.
It can also minimise distractions so you can create a work-life balance.
Converting your roof space is less invasive and disruptive than a standard makeover. You can stay in your homes while the attic room is being constructed.
The main access during an attic renovation is usually through the roof, so there is little need to disturb your family by going through the house.
How It Works
Attic conversion in Glebe will start with an inspection to see if your roof space suits the project. It will be followed by the planning and design, where we will consider height restrictions, load-bearing capacity, and other factors.
The design must address whether it will be necessary to install flooring, insulate the walls and ceiling, finish them with plasterboard, and paint the inside. We can also add optional features like attic ladders, roof windows and skylights.
If you require an attic ladder, AtticPlus has a wide selection of metal and wood pull-down stairs to complement any style you choose. The best part is that they are both strong and simple to use.
An attic conversion in Glebe might be the solution for you if you want to clear out your clutter, increase the value of your home, and improve the comfort level of your living space.

Is attic conversion worth the investment?
Adding an extra habitable room (or two) such as bedroom, ensuite or bathroom to your home, with a well-executed attic conversion, can add almost 20 per cent to its market value. Even more if you live inner Sydney where space is limited and property value is high. Plus, it’s easier than adding an extra storey or extension.
Can I still live in my home?
Absolutely! We are able to work in a manner that causes minimal disruption to your home. 90% of the time our installers will be in the roof space.
Attic Room projects are usually accessed through the roof via a scaffold. We don’t even need to enter your home until the project is almost completed (to install the attic ladder or fixed staircase).
Our installers all carry vacuums/drop sheets to ensure the space is left tidy at the end of each day.
Do I need DA approval?
Generally, no! For storage solutions and attic rooms, our works are confined to the existing parameters of the property and because we do not alter the roofline of the house we are able to avoid the timely and costly process of a Development Application.
How long does it take?
Basic storage is generally completed within a day or two. Dust proof storage rooms tend to take between three to five days depending on size and our Attic Rooms can take between 3-5 weeks. Every home is different, but we can usually give a good estimate on timing at the first enquiry stage.
