Loft Conversions

A loft conversion is a popular method to transform an unused loft or attic into a functional living space, providing additional space without the need for an extension. Planning permission from the local council is typically required for most loft conversions, although some types that stay within the existing roof line or have limited volume may be considered permitted development.

Loft Conversion Costs

 The overall cost of your loft conversion will depend on various factors, such as the size and complexity of the project, location of the property, and materials used. Despite varying costs, loft conversions are often viewed as a cost-effective way to increase your property’s value and provide additional living space.

 

Our services

The typical process of a loft conversion in the UK involves the following stages:

  • Initial consultation: A builder or architect is consulted to evaluate if the loft space is suitable for conversion, taking into account the roof’s structural integrity and headroom.
  • Design and planning: The suitability of the loft space is confirmed and the builder or architect collaborates with the homeowner to create a design for the living space. This includes decisions on layout, materials, and finishes, and may involve obtaining planning permission and building regulations approval.
  • Construction: With the plans finalized and approvals obtained, construction work can begin, such as installing a staircase, reinforcing the existing floor, adding insulation, and fitting windows, doors, and other fixtures.
  • Finishing: After construction work is completed, finishing touches like plastering, painting, and installing flooring, kitchen units, and bathroom fixtures can be added.
  • Final inspection: A final inspection is conducted to ensure that the loft conversion meets all safety standards and building regulations. The entire loft conversion process can take several months, depending on the complexity of the project. It is crucial to work with a reliable builder or architect who can provide guidance throughout the process and ensure that the work is completed safely and to a high standard.
