We start with a conversation about what you want to achieve. We discuss and outline all the Extension or loft options for your particular area taking into account structural requirements, any legal restrictions there may be such as listed buildings, or conservation areas, and any planning policy constraints. If you need planning permission, we will help you to secure it as well as any other legal permissions that may be necessary. We will also advise and help you decide on the most suitable materials for your loft conversion so that it blends in beautifully with your existing home. We can also arrange for you to meet with our partner builders if you wish. All of our Packages include
We are here to help you design and build the extra space you need in your home, affordably, with only high-grade materials, and in a way that will add the most value to your property. We know that it’s not always an easy decision to make. Working with us is a collaborative experience and we want our clients to feel like they can ask us anything. We also like to treat them like we do our family and we look after every client’s home like it is our own.
Start with this short, informative guide to help demystify the process and then get in touch with any other questions you may have
We Provide four types of Lofts
This is one of the most popular types of loft conversion as it provides a good amount of head height and has the ability to add up to 50 cubic metres of extra space to your property. The dormer is usually built out of the slope of the roof, meaning that most of the work can be carried out from scaffolding outside of your home. This type of conversion generally does not require planning permission.
This type of loft conversion is built by connecting two dormer builds together; one on a main roof and the other on a rear roof. The result is a much larger space, which can be used for either two bedrooms and a bathroom or one large bedroom and a bathroom, or a host of other combinations! The choice is yours. This type of loft conversion is particularly popular on period type properties.
A mansard loft conversion alters the structure of a sloping roof to a near straight slope at an angle of 72 degrees. Windows are built into the roof as small dormers or even Juliette balconies are feasible. The mansard conversion is usually erected to the rear of a property and is often considered one of the most aesthetically pleasing types of loft conversion. Planning permission is usually required.
