A big thank you to Rob and Sam for our new loft. We were recommended by a friend in Radlett and we love our new bedroom and bathroom. Sam ran the project daily and Rob and Mark are also on hand to speak whenever we needed them. We will be using them for our extension next year. Thanks all. More...

Highly recommend Unique Lofts. Ben and his team did a great job on our double dormer loft conversion with shower room. Basic quote accurate with pricing of any extras/upgrades clearly explained and agreed in advance. Wasn’t looking forward to doing the build with my two young kids around but Ben and his team were considerate and easy to have around which helped a lot. Communication was very good and Ben and his team were always very responsive to giving advice and ideas about how things could be done and sorted any issues promptly. Really happy with the end result and having an amazing new floor in our home. More...

Met with Mark last year and decided to use unique lofts in April. Work was good and completed in just over 6 weeks. Only thing was we had to wait for bathroom equipment so make sure this is ordered asap. Del and the team are great though and Mark was on hand whenever we needed him. Recommended. More...

Fantastic company to deal with. Mark came round and explained the whole process from start to finish. I saw 4 other companies but unique lofts were by far the most knowledgeable. I also found the checkatrade reviews helpful which none of the other companies had. The works took 7 weeks in total and although there is disruption Sam and his team kept any mess to a minimum. Stage payments were kept to timescales and there were no unexpected extras. Have already recommended to two other people in our street. Thanks to Mark, Sam and the team we love our new bedroom and bathroom. More...

Hi mark. Sorry it's taken a while to review we've been manic with the baby ! We employed Unique Lofts as they guaranteed the works would be fully completed in 8 weeks as my wife was expecting our first child and we were really impressed with Mark's knowledge and previous catalogue of work.The build itself took just over 6 weeks and then with carpet fitting and painting, Darren who Mark recommended was amazing and finished the loft in 4 days !!! The whole process was 3 days short of 8 weeks and we started to move furniture up in the loft. With Mark and Billy's guidance we changed our minds to 2 bedrooms and bathroom which work perfectly. The communication was fantastic as I work long hours and my wife spent most of the last few weeks at her mums. We are so pleased and when we do our extension Mark will be the first person we speak to. Friends have already asked for quotes and they cant believe the space we've created.Special thanks to Billy as well who was our on site project manager who was brilliant.All is all a great set of guys. Cheers Leon. More...

Was referred after praise from a friend, and they did not disappoint. Mark was always on call for any questions and our builder Ben kept communication open throughout. We had some extra charges due to unexpected problems in the build but at all points this was explained clearly. Really happy with results. Any snags have been resolved quickly. Really honest bunch!!!

When looking for a builder for my loft conversion my main aim was to find someone honest, reliable and professional and my experience of Unique Lofts was that they were all of these things. The team in charge of the build were experienced, approachable and committed to doing a good job. The job started in mid-August 2018 and went until late Oct/Early November and everything went to plan. I now have a converted loft that I am extremely happy with. I would recommended Unique Lofts unreservedly. More...

I can honestly say it was a pleasure to have Unique Lofts carry out my Loft Conversion. The Team I was given (Ben and Martin) were incredible. Not only were they timely, clean and tidy and great work, I could ask them anything and it was never a problem. Their suggestions and knowledge was amazing. Sadly I suffered the death of my father towards the end of the build and that's when you really are aware that you have picked the best people. Their kindness, consideration and respectfulness was exemplary.The price quoted was the price paid there were no oh but this is extra.Thank you so much Ben, Martin and Mark More...

Lovely main contractors Ben and Martin. Arrived on time. Both guys gave valuable suggestions for maximising the space we had. They worked hard and provided little touches to the finish of the build without quibbles. Had a few glitches with other sub contractor ie: plasterer, but would suggest to future clients to not accept weekend work as it can make it a tiresome process. I did agree to this but if I could do it again I would definitely Say no. Electrician, plumber and roofer were all excellent. A Great team overall and a build wouldn’t be a build with out the odd hitch. Very pleased, THANKS! More...

We received 4 quotes for a complicated loft conversion, which included lowering upstairs ceilings, a chimney breast removal and first floor rewiring on top of a double dormer containing a large bedroom and shower room. Unique lofts were a fairly easy choice. Their price was very good and the company owner Mark was very knowledgeable and likeable. Mark arranged the whole job for us, from architect who submitted panning permission on our behalf, to Jamie the project manager, Stuart the job supervisor, Carl, Stuart's regular team mate and a host of friendly, punctual and skillful tradesmen who arrived on time, without fuss, treated our house respectfully, were easy to get on with and of course most importantly have done a fantastic job in just 2 months, half of which was in a heatwave! Whatsapp messages were exchanged most days, our opinion was sought at every step, the guys were never condescending, guidance was given, payments were made in gradual amounts as each part of the job was completed and if ever there were minor issues discovered they were rectified quickly and without and fuss. I couldn't recommend Unique lofts more highly. They put your mind at rest, their work is fantastic and their prices are extremely competitive. More...

Seen a dozen or so loft conversion companies. Some were straight in and out without taking measurements or seeming to know what they were doing and others who were professional simply priced me out due to their London centric view on cost. Mark was the most knowledgeable and gave me detailed descriptions of everything, including fire and building regulation requirements which I wasn't yet aware of, before I had even agreed to use him. His quote was the most competitive and I felt most comfortable with his trustworthiness so decided to choose Unique Lofts.The team did a fantastic job, giving us a brand new en suite bedroom in the previously storage only space. I am so happy with the finish due to the extremely high level of workmanship used throughout. Any small issues that I wasn't happy with were rectified. I always felt sure that any aspect, however small, not up to standard (and trust me, I am very fussy) would be sorted out, as Mark always made it his priority to get the tradesmen back to keep me content. That is the great thing about this company - you can always be sure you'll end up with exactly what you wanted in the first place. There were also many bespoke tasks that I wanted to add on top of the original plan and there was never any fuss about getting it all done.I wanted to use a company that managed everything for me, from planning, design and actual work to building regulations completion. Unique Lofts offer the whole package, which takes away all the stress from the client. I can't recommend Mark enough and it was the easiest and best decision I made. More...

I met with 4 loft conversion companies and unique lofts were exceptional from the start.A very clear and detailed quote was issued within days and my architect was impressed with Marks knowledge and experience. The job was completed and issued with relevant certificates. My loft with ensuite looks fantastic. Unique lofts kept to their quote and gave me a fantastic addiction to my home. The standard of work was excellent and all the staff involved were cheerful and professional. It’s difficult making the right choice on an expensive building project but unsourced lofts do a great job, stay within budget and behave honourably throughout the process. More...

Decided on a loft conversion,We finally decided to give our custom to ‘Unique Lofts’, competitive quote, but was impressed by the professional approach of the company, Mark and his team, when they visited the premises to view the potential job. Also, impressed with the credentials of the company (The Accreditus Register. Checkatrade, Independent Warranty Association Membership and Which Trusted Trader)The ‘Payment Stage’ system that the company operated (you knew what work was to be completed at each stage of the build, rough guide to time to completion of each stage and what amount would be due when that stage had been completed to the customer’s satisfaction). You felt in control of the payments for build and knew that you would not expect hidden costs to suddenly be added during progression of work, you pay for exactly what you get as you get it to your personal satisfaction / sign-offA project manager, Mark was then assigned for the work. He called round to inspect the job and ran through full details of the work to be undertaken. All aspects were covered in detail and comprehensively. All team members that carried out the work were hard working, experienced, professional, polite and courteous and carried out the various aspects of the work to a high standard. They all took a professional pride in the individual work they were assigned and were always happy to answer any queries (how, why, when) we may have had as work progressed. As with any major construction undertaking, some minor issues can occur that are not foreseen. The project manager was able to deal with any issues in a timely and effective manner so that resolution was achieved to our satisfaction.On completion of the work (on time and to budget previously agreed) all the minor snagging issues were dealt with in a timely manner.Overall a great job and the loft extension (spacious extra bedrooms with en-suite toilet and shower) has added an extra dimension to our home.The first people to benefit are my two daughters, they like it so much and really appreciated the space.I am proud of what has been achieved with the loft conversion and pleased with the extra living accommodation it has provided and would have no hesitation in recommending Unique Lofts and their team to undertake this type of work if this is a route you are contemplating for your home.

quote was competitive and work was too a great standard. The stand out factor was the little touches the teams discussed with us whilst the build was going on. The little tweaks like an in-built bookcase above the stairs and a slightly bigger velux made the build much more usable once complete. Have already recommended to several people on my street who have already got quotes! More...

Mark and team recently coverted our loft. He came round at night so we didn't need to take time off work and explained everything in plain language so we understood everything. Quote was competitive and the price didn't change throughout the project. I'd recommend unique to anyone More...

Q&A

Ideally the loft needs to be a minimum of 2.2m-2.3m high from the floor to the underside of the ridge timber in the roof. This will ensure the finished loft height is a minimum of 2m when finished.

1. Scaffold is erected.
2. Delivery of materials and steels beams and new timber floor joists installed.
3. Dormer is built and New stairs are installed from the existing 1st floor to the new loft floor.
4. All insulation is cut and placed in the new structure.
5. New windows placed at the front , velux windows, and rear dormer windows.
6. All walls and ceilings are plasterboarded and then newly plastered ready for decoration.
7. New bathroom if required is installed and all electrics completed.
8. All 2nd fix carpentry is completed ready for decoration.
9. Building control sign off.

The happiness it brings to all my clients when they see what an amazing space can be created!

Using my knowledge and experience to help people understand the building process and doing things the way I would want to be treated by a building company.
