No matter the project size, we will build you a loft that reflects your style and meets your lifestyle’s needs.


Can You Convert Your Loft Yourself in Chingford?

There are many advantages to having a contractor do your loft conversion in Chingford, but you should be sure to check out all the requirements before proceeding. You will need to obtain Building Regulations approval for the loft conversion, and you will need to contact a control survey officer to review your plans. The office will inspect your project at various stages and issue you with a certificate. You may also need to notify the neighbours of your plans under the Party Wall Act, which requires you to notify them of your plans before starting.

While you may be able to do this yourself, a professional is always the best choice in Chingford. Getting the right people for the project is essential. An architect or designer will help you produce plans, which you can then submit to a building regulation authority for approval. If you can't do it yourself, you can outsource the work. Ensure you get quotes from at least three companies before committing to a single one. Make sure to clarify all the details before hiring a company. The best way to choose a good builder is through personal recommendations and online reviews. Ask for examples of their previous work so that you can make an informed decision.

It is important to follow the pitch line of your roof when planning your loft conversion in Chingford. Skylights are often the easiest to install, and you can tile them yourself if you want to get the most out of the space. A skylight should be installed using a special frame that matches the pitch of your roof. Remember to check with the local building regulations office before beginning the conversion. If you are unsure about the process, it is best to seek advice from a professional.
