How do I start a Loft Conversion?

Converting your loft needn’t be difficult. As one of the most favoured types of home improvement, loft conversions are an ideal way to create extra space inside of your home. But carrying out a loft conversion isn’t a straightforward process, so finding the right people for the job is vital. Thankfully, Bark makes it easy to connect to experts so you can start planning your loft conversion today.

The cost to convert

So how much are loft conversions?

Due to the effort required when converting a loft, the difference in price can be quite large and will vary depending on the options you go for. Before proceeding, you should set a budget and a timescale for your project.

Do I need planning permission for a Loft Conversion?

In the majority of cases, carrying out a loft conversion is fine, as it is recognised as a permitted development. The design of the conversion does need to fit specific parameters, however.

If you want to convert your loft past these parameters (or you have a home located in an area of conservation), you need to make sure to apply for planning permission. This also goes for any instance where you wish to change the height or shape of the roof.

What are the benefits of a Loft Conversion?

There are a few great benefits to converting your loft into a new room.

Out of these benefits, boosting the market value of your home is particularly favourable. In some cases, a loft conversion can add up to 25% to the original value of your home - which is something to consider if you plan on selling your home in the future.

Building an extension outwards can be a great way to create a recreational space such as a conservatory, but can also take up a lot of room. Converting your loft enables you to build upwards rather than outwards, while simultaneously insulating your home.

And of course, having an entirely new room is always a plus. This can become the basis for anything you imagine – maybe you’d like another bedroom, or how about a home gym?

What kind of Loft Conversion should I choose?

There are a variety of options to choose from when deciding on a loft conversion. Of course, the type of loft conversion you opt for will affect how much you can expect to pay and how much time it will take, too.

Hip to Gable

This type of loft conversion is recommended if you own an end of terrace, detached, or semi detached house. It is a type of conversion carried out on roofs that have three slanted sides. Aside from opening up the loft, Hip To Gable conversions allow for the staircase to join seamlessly in the process. They can also be fixed to a dormer loft at the rear side of the roof.


Mansard loft conversions take a little more work and effort than the other types of conversion mentioned above. In most cases, Mansard conversions require planning permission because of the complexity of the changes needed. However, all of the work put into a Mansard conversion, the results are the most aesthetically appealing - creating an abundance of space, light and headroom.


Shell conversions are most useful for those on a set budget, or homeowners that want to be involved in the construction process. Shell conversions are unique in that they enable you to add their own finishing touches to the design. It is a heavily structural work that enables great collaboration with the tradespeople involved.


The most popular type of loft conversion, dormer conversions are an extension of an existing roof. While they are straightforward, a dormer loft conversion is an efficient use of space and can quite easily become the biggest room in your house once finished. They are quite versatile and can be constructed on a variety of structures and in varying configurations.

Oakwood Lofts Ltd

West Sussex

‘20 Certificate of Excellence

Oakwood Lofts was founded in early 2018 by Jay Griffiths. I Started the company after spending 15 years building loft conversions alongside my Father Mick for various major loft conversion companies in and around Sussex. One thing that became clear to me was that a very large amount of conversion companies were run by salesmen or individuals with no trade background, many of whom had never actually built a loft themselves. I felt that this statistic needed to change. Which is why I not only run the company, I'm also involved in the building of our conversions. This is an important part to Oakwood lofts roots, making sure our customers continually have peace of mind that not only is their project in very experienced capable hands but also that I am onsite everyday and available to answer any questions you may have at any stage of the conversion giving you complete peace of mind. Oakwood lofts are very proud of the conversions we complete for our clients and that’s reflected in not only the finish but also the amazing reviews and friendships we build with all our customers. We truly offer a very personal service because we truly care about each and every loft we take on. If you have a project you think we would be perfect for, please get in touch. We would love to meet you and build you your dream loft.

How can someone tell if their loft is suitable for conversion?

The first and most crucial element in knowing whether your loft can be converted is the hight you have available from the top of your ceiling joists to the underside of your ridge beam. This needs to be a minimum of 2 metres for a loft conversion to be possible.

What do you love most about your job?

For me it’s the final product, that completed loft that the client is over the moon with. No two lofts are the same, every client has their own quirks, styles and designs. I love working closely with every client ensuring the end result is exactly what the client wanted.

What inspired you to start your own business?

After building lofts for so many years for other companies, I decided that starting my own company was the next step In my loft buIlding career. To many companies i know employee sales man to sell a loft conversion. What I think is great about my company is that the person you meet to discuss your loft conversion ideas with is the same person thats going to be building it for you. I think it’s important to create a rapour right from the start. Also, as I’m going to be building your lofts, it means I’m always on site to answer any questions you have throughout the whole process. No need to be chasing company owners via email or phone.

Why should our clients choose you?

I’m a small family run company, this allows me to focus on one loft conversion at a time. This means that my entire focus is on your loft conversion and your payments pay for your job. This allows tradesmen and merchants to be paid promptly avoiding any delays in the build.
