Introduction to Loft Conversion

Loft conversion has become the new trend almost everyone is considering to get a loft conversion. This process of loft conversion has become so popular because it allows owners to add some extra living space to the present home, without incurring huge charges. With the increase in demand for loft conversions, there has also been an increase in demand for agencies that undertake loft conversion projects.

If you are looking for agencies to help you with a loft conversion in Chelmsford, then you should consider doing business with Loft Conversion London. We are one of the best companies who offer Loft conversion services and our services are fairly priced and completely professional.

Advantages of Getting a Loft Conversion in Chelmsford

A loft conversion is a simple process where the attic of the house is remodeled and reinforced so that it can be used as a proper bedroom or any other room. Not all houses are the same so it is not possible to do the same kind of loft conversion in every single house, there are various types of loft conversions, and the cost of getting these loft conversions also differs. The purpose of a loft conversion remains the same and here are some advantages of it.

  • Availability of Extra Room

You might be living in a 2 bedroom house and sooner or later you will need an extra bedroom or an extra room to accommodate your family. Having an extra room is always an advantage as you can invite guests, have parties, or even use the extra room to meditate or use the room to follow a passion like music or art.

This extra room might be the exact addition to the house you might be waiting for and having an extra room has almost no disadvantages.

  • Incurring Less Cost

Normally, if you need some extra space you would move to a different house or get an extra story constructed above your house. This is a huge investment and you would have to shell out a lot of money. Even if you are thinking of moving to a better house with some extra rooms, you would have to spend a lot on the transport of furniture and other goods.

Rather than spending so much on shifting, it is better to use the same amount of money to get a loft conversion. This would save a lot of time and money and you get to customize the room however you want.

  • Increase in the Property Value

The biggest advantage of getting a loft conversion is that it increases the property value by 15-20%. When you sell the house you can show the lofted room to be an exclusive feature of the house and most of the houses with a lofted room are attractive and sell fast. If you invest 15,000 on a loft conversion you get the invested 15,000 plus 15-20% profit on that. So getting a loft conversion is an investment rather than an expense.

  • Energy Efficient

You can make your house energy efficient simply by installing solar panels and by getting a loft conversion. When you get a loft conversion there is plenty of sunlight inside the room and you don't have to invest in LED bulbs or any other lighting equipment. This natural light is also a source of vitamin D and this light can help in preventing a lot of diseases.

If you're planning on renovating your loft conversion in Chelmsford, there are a few things you should consider before starting the project. The first thing to do is to find out if your property is subject to building regulations. If it is, this means that you will need to adhere to certain standards when carrying out renovations and conversions. If your property isnt subject to building regulations then you can carry out the conversion however you like. You could install a new roof, replace doors and windows, or even build an extension if necessary.


Yes, you can use your own plans for a loft conversion. The first thing you'll want to do is make sure that the plans meet all of the local building codes in Chelmsford. If they don't, you'll need to hire an architect or engineer to make adjustments. After that, you should check with your insurance company to ensure that the plan is suitable for your needsfor example if it's not strong enough to support another floor above the one it will be attached to. On top of that, you need to make sure that the home itself has adequate structural support for adding a new floor. If it doesn't have enough support already built in, there are ways around this by adding additional beams or posts underneath where the new floor will be placed. Once everything has been approved by all parties involved (insurance and local government), then we can begin construction!


The amount of time it takes to complete a loft conversion depends on a few factors, including the size of your home, how much work there is to do inside and out, and whether or not you want to keep the same layout. For example, if you have an older house with little insulation and poor heating, it will take longer than if you have a newer home that has already been insulated. If you're adding new features like an extra bathroom or kitchen, it will take longer than if you are just converting an unused attic into a living space. If you want a quote on timeframes based on these factors, please contact us today!


The Party Wall Act is a law that allows people to build extensions or improve their Chelmsford homes without causing damage to neighbouring properties. It's designed to protect both parties, as well as make sure that any work carried out is done properly and safely. A Party Wall Agreement is an official document that outlines exactly what's going on and how it will be carried out. The agreement should include information about what each party wants from the other, how they'll communicate with each other, who will pay for any extra costs (for example if one party has to get planning permission), and anything else which needs to be agreed upon. If you're planning on carrying out some kind of work which could affect your neighbour's property, then you need a Party Wall Agreement in place before starting any work.


Planning permission is one of the most common questions we get asked. The answer is yes - you need planning permission for a loft conversion. This isn't surprising, because Chelmsford loft conversions can be quite disruptive to the neighbours and the wider community. They can cause noise, mess, dust and even damage to neighbouring properties. So any changes made to your property will need to be carefully considered before you start work on them.
