“Why should I convert my loft?”
Many people don’t realise that oft-forgotten space in the top of your house is just another room waiting to be converted into something useful! Why keep it as a storage space when that room could be used to create a new spare bedroom, improve the value of your house and create more floorspace for living in? We can outfit it into a modern space of chrome, light and open space for a relaxation area, dark, comfortable and leathery for a home cinema, nice, cosy and warm for a library and reading area or anything else you can think of!
“How much does a loft conversion cost?”
We’ll be honest here: Loft conversion doesn’t come cheap, but would you want to cheap out on a service that can add thousands to the value of your house? Not to mention the improvement of living of having more floorspace, or the extra income provided for renting out the new spare bedroom! If you have a chat with us and decide on a consultation, then we can give you a loft conversion quote, a bit of information on the benefits of a loft conversion and leave you to make your own decision with no pressure!

"What services do we provide"?
There are other services that we provide customers in the area. We are not just a loft conversion company, but we provide other useful services for your lofts such as loft boarding, loft extensions, loft designs and overall loft conversions.
Loft boarding is an incredibly useful tool that you can use for your Lofts. It is in short the preparation to a conversion and it would also involve building the foundations for a future conversion if you decide to have one. Having the loft boarded is very important for future loft conversions in that it will help cut a lot of time out of the latter's process, but a loft boarding will also be useful if you would like to use it as a storage area since it builds a stronger foundation. Otherwise a loft boarding can be done without having a conversion in your mind, and all you have to do is contact us if you have any questions or would like any more information on what a loft boarding is and what we can do for you.
Loft extensions are another service that we can provide for you. You may have had your loft converted in the past and now you need to either make adjustments or edits to it, or would like to make the space bigger for any reason. Even if you just need the roof to be lifted slightly or you need the walls widened to fit more furniture in there, we can do either for you. We are able to do an extension of any size while being able to keep the design and the original loft design intact without damage or too much adjustment. Head on over to our services section to read a bit more about it!
Loft insulation can be a very importance service that we provide depending on what your needs are and why you would need us to insulate your loft. You may have previously gotten a loft conversion in the past and the loft was not properly insulated, in which case we can do so for you with ease. We can both insulate the loft and also make and adjustments or edits to the previous conversion if you would need us to. Another reason you may need an insulation is because you have recently had a boarding or an extension and the room has yet to be insulated. This would be very important to have done as soon as possible, since it could get much more expensive if you decide to wait. We are able to do an insulation no matter what you already have done, and we will also ensure to do it without an issue to your property.
Loft Design is another service that we can provide customers who are looking for something to be done to their loft. We can design the room and the interior decoration of the loft conversion, while then being able to implement the design that we create. We understand that customers may have an issue being able to design the rooms themselves, which is why we are able to do so for you. We have a creative group of people here who have worked on and designed hundreds of lofts, so their experience and creativity will be extremely helpful to you if you would like to use the help! We would recommend any customer that has not created a design or is not completely aware of what they would like to talk to us and we will be able to walk you through it.
