Attic Remodel Tips
– According to typical building codes, attics must meet the minimal height of 7 feet 6 inches, the staircase leading up to the attic must be 36 inches wide, and include an egress window that meets all current code regulations. At GCS we can make sure that all code requirements are included in your design and approved by your city or township.
– Energy efficiency is really important when considering an attic remodel. Items such as insulation, correct heating and air conditioning options, and proper ductwork can ensure energy efficiency.
– Adding dormers can add to the natural sunlight of the room as well as being a great way to add additional ceiling height and floor space. These are also an option if your original attic space is having a hard time meeting the minimum ceiling height requirements.
– If structural analysis is required GCS will work with an architect to make sure everything is structurally sound and meets all code requirements.
