Pal Lee have done an absolutely fantastic job throughout our major renovation and rebuild. We have just finished and have been highly impressed at every stage, from first receiving a clear and competitive quote through to the final detailing. The work included removing walls and inserting steels and a complete overhaul of all wiring, flooring, windows and continued through to the installing TVs and even helping me build furniture (forever grateful!). I hired Pal Lee in my role as a designer and project manager so had to be particularly strict when it came to standards as the apartment was then for my client; I did not need to worry at any point. They often picked up on small details I had missed and their standards were above and beyond what I could have hoped for. The final result is exceptionally good and so very professional in every aspect. I felt throughout that I could pick up the phone and anything I needed done or answered was, immediately, and with a great attitude. Their way of dealing with any inevitable issues, usually us adding works, was so calm and positive.I went through many quotes and companies for this work before choosing Pal Lee, and have been so pleased with the decision ever since. In my opinion they have excelled and I will be using them again on future works without hesitation. Thank you to the whole team for what you’ve made possible. More...

From the first meeting to midway through the project which is where we are now its been exceptional. Communication is very good, workmanship is excellent.

Q&As

When it comes to assessing the feasibility of a loft conversion project, there are a number of factors that will need to be considered. These factors include the available head height, the roof’s pitch and the roof structure, as well as any obstacles such as water tanks or chimney stacks.
Measure from the bottom of the ridge timber to the top of the ceiling joist; the useable part of the roof should be greater than 2.2m.

If you have appointed an architect or designer, ask them to illustrate clearly how much headroom there will be across the floor in the finished space. Some people are disappointed by how much standing space they actually have, and this isn’t always easily conveyed on plans.

The Building Regulations impose no minimum ceiling height for habitable rooms. But don’t forget to consider the stair entry to the loft space. The headroom standard for stairs of 2m applies, but this can be relaxed to 1.9m or 1.8m on the edge of a stair if necessary.

The higher the angle of the roof pitch, the higher the central head height is likely to be, and if dormers are used or the roof is redesigned, the floor area, and potential for comfortable headroom, can be increased.

Two main structures are used for roof construction — namely traditional framed type and truss section type. The traditional framed type is typically found in pre-1960s houses where the rafters and ceiling joists, together with supporting timbers, are cut to size on site and assembled. This type of structure has more structural input, so is often the most suitable type for attic conversions. The space can be easily, and relatively inexpensively, opened up by strengthening the rafters and adding supports as specified by a structural engineer.

Post 1960s, the most popular form of construction used factory-made roof trusses. These utilise thinner – and therefore cheaper timbers – but have structural integrity by the addition of braced diagonal timbers. They allow a house roof to be erected and felted in a day. However, this type of truss suggests that there are no loadbearing structures beneath, and so opening up the space requires a greater added structural input.

This will normally involve the insertion of steel beams between loadbearing walls for the new floor joists to hang on and the rafter section to be supported on — together with a steel beam at the ridge. This added structural input requires skill, knowledge and equipment that would limit scope as far as DIY is concerned — and a far greater cash outlay. It is advisable to seek advice from specialist firms in this instance.

Without the roof space for water tanks and plumbing, the heating and hot water system may have to be replaced with a sealed system. Unvented hot water cylinders make a better choice than replacing the boiler with a combi (combination) boiler but they do take up a cupboard-sized room, which you will have to find space and budget for.
