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

Before you start on Loft Conversion, you need to check if your loft space is actually suitable for a conversion. Most of the houses within London come with permitted development, which in simpler terms means that you can carry on with your loft conversion without the need of any planning permission. We can visit your house for a site survey and guide you on what can be done with regards to your loft conversion.

Measure the Headspace

Did you know that your Loft needs to have a minimum head height of 2.3m for you to convert it? Yes, that's correct, there is a limitation on the conversion of your loft based on the height. There are other obstacles which can affect this decision or hinder the planning permission process too, such as the pitch of the roof, chimneys, water tanks in the loft, etc. Don't worry if your roof space is less then 2.3m as there are various options available such as removal of the section of the roof or all of it, in order to increase the headspace. This, in turn, will add to the cost and will require planning permission, unlike a more straightforward conversion.

Do consider the floor below

Another idea is to lower the ceiling of the rooms below so that this way your loft's headspace increases and meets the required 2.3m height. This process again can be costly but can sort your issue for more space.

Look for other Conversions on your Street

An easy way to get a clue if your loft can be converted is to look for loft conversions on your street. Look for similar houses on your street and whether or not they have had loft conversions. If you see an example, then its more then likely that you can too. All in all, everything is possible if you want a loft conversion.

Run us through the different stages in the loft conversion process - what’s involved?

The Loft Conversion Process:
Loft Conversions differ in various ways, but they all have the same development stages from start to finish. As a client, you can rest assured that you will not be disturbed while you live in your home during the conversion process. Throughout the process, we will keep the communication channels open so that you can talk to us, as often and as thoroughly as you like, so that both the parties can understand the progress accordingly. We will give you a dedicated project manager who will be at the site daily to manage the work and ensure the smooth completion of the project.



Here is a brief step by step guide as to what will happen in the loft conversion process:



1. We will first visit your place to take the specifications and understand all your requirements for the loft conversion. You will at this stage share your own ideas, opinions and we will discuss various options for your perfect loft conversion. Before our meeting, you can view our gallery of the type of loft conversion you want and if you like a design of our past loft conversions. There is no harm to take inspiration or ideas of an existing design.

2. Once all the specifications have been agreed, we will create a contract that has to be completed by Loft Conversion London and the client. Once this has been completed the next step is to place a deposit so that the first phase of work can commence.

3. If you have an architect already then you can use them to draw up the plans and if not, we will send our architects to visit your property and survey the areas of work. Our architects will draw up plans for the loft conversion, which can take up to 10-14 working days. Once the drawing is completed, they will be sent to you for review and if you’re happy to sign them off then we can submit them to your local council on your behalf if planning is required, and later building regulations. Once the plans are approved by your local council, we will then be ready to commence work.

4. Party Wall Awards: We can supply the appropriate documentation for you to issue to your adjoining neighbours.

5. The full loft conversion building time will be around 8-12 weeks but depending on the type of loft conversion you are going for; this project can be completed much more quickly. The contracts manager will be visiting the site on a weekly basis to check on the progress and ensure everything is being completed at the highest standard.

6. Our manager will make the last final check on the loft conversion before we arrange the local council or local private contractor to assess your new loft and give a completion certificate. Thereafter your loft will be handed over to you to enjoy your beautiful new loft converted living space.

Converting your loft into liveable space is typically much more cost effective than building an extension, with prices starting from just £15,000 for a basic loft conversion. However, this depends on how complex the design is. A loft conversion can be as simple as a room in the roof, or it can involve adding dormer windows or even altering the roof. The more sophisticated the design is, the higher the cost will be.

According to research carried out by Nationwide Building Society, converting your loft can increase the value of your home by up to 20%. With the average price of a house in the UK currently standing at £235,000, a loft conversion could increase your home’s value by up to £47,000. Of course, this depends on the design of your loft conversion and the amount of extra space that you’re adding to your property.

Most loft conversions will take around 10 weeks to complete. However, this is dependent on the design of your loft conversion. How long it takes to convert your loft will depend on the type of loft conversion being done, the materials used, whether plumbing is required, the type of staircase being installed and how many windows are being added.
