“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 is the loft conversion timescale?”
A loft conversion with our company normally takes 6-12 weeks but it really depends on the size of your conversion and what you would like to turn it into. This is because we follow all building regulations while doing a loft conversion as well as the health and safety of our workers always being taken into account. We have also come to find hidden property damage during some of our jobs and these can also delay proceedings, however, we will be in contact with you every step of the way and keep you updated on progress whenever you ask, as well as a weekly update on the work.
"Do I need planning permission for a loft conversion?"
You don't need a planning permission for most loft conversions, however, some will require you to get planning permissions, notably if you plan to exceed or alter the roof space in your home past specified limits. We will of course speak to you about what your aims are for your loft conversion and whether or not you'll need to arrange planning permission beforehand.
"Can I do a DIY Loft conversion?"
You can, however, we strongly recommend against it. Loft conversion is a lengthy, intricate and dangerous job. It can also be incredibly costly if you make a mistake and may require planning permission as mentioned above depending on your requirements.
