Southgate is a suburban area situated north of London and is within the London Borough of Enfield. The district got its name from being the south gate to Enfield Chase. Tourists can find an art deco Grade II in Southgate tube station which is designed by Charles Holden. Residents in the area enjoy spending their leisure time at the available restaurants, cafes, and green spaces in the district like Trent Park Country Club and Grovelands Park, which was originally a private estate before it became a public space. The park is listed as Grade II on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.

Whether your family is growing, renting out a room in your property, or simply want a new study or office, a loft conversion is an ideal solution to maximise space in your house. This is a cost-effective alternative to moving and will increase the value of your property when you decide to sell in the future. No matter the project size, we will build you a loft that reflects your style and meets your lifestyle’s needs.
Whether you have a growing family or just want to add another space to your house that can cater to your hobbies, a loft conversion is the best way to go. With a loft conversion, you can transform an unused area in your home and turn it into a new bedroom, a mini studio, or a library. Aside from the newly-designed space, converting your loft can also be a profitable move for you. According to the Nationwide Building Society, a loft conversion can add value to your property by up to 25% so if you plan to sell your house in the future, having a loft that is custom-built can be a good selling point. You can also save up on your energy bills with a loft conversion. Through this home upgrade, you can shorten the usage of electricity thanks to the newly installed skylight that will provide you with natural lighting and insulators that will provide you with a warm-tempered room without the need for a heating system.
Acquiring a building regulation certificate is essential before starting a loft conversion on your property in Southgate. It is necessary to acquire approval from the local authority in your area or a private building inspection company so it will imply that the construction has complied with the standard construction procedures like the sufficiency of the structural strength of the new floor, the stability of the structure, fire safety, and more. Obtaining this type of document will also help you to avoid getting your property devalued after the conversion since a building regulation approval can mean your loft is safe to be considered as a room.
Setting the right budget for this type of home upgrade is a crucial step, but you don’t need to worry though if you’ll hire the expert team we have at Loft Conversion London as we’ll provide you with a detailed breakdown of where your money will be spent. It’s also advisable to have a contingency fund which can, later on, save you from overspending. The most budget-friendly type of loft conversion usually starts at £25,000 as this will only involve a simple transformation where Velux windows will be installed and available space will only be maximized by such. The most expensive type will have you spending from £50,000 to £95,000 because of the required structural changes it will create on your property that will let you enjoy a space that’s almost similar to a new storey.
As you employ the services we offer at Loft Conversion London, rest assured that we’ll build you a loft that’s close to your goal. That's why we'll be with you every step of the way, from the planning up until the last phase of the construction. Our loft conversion process is usually intricate and detailed so when it’s laid out to you by one of our experts you’ll be well-informed of the steps that we will take to build this project. The initial step includes an inspection of your home in Southgate. In this step, our team will determine the size of the area available for a loft conversion. We will have the measurement matched to your type of loft conversion so the construction goes on smoothly. After that’s settled, we will then start making plans for the loft space and obtain the necessary permits that your loft conversion will call for. Once everything is done, that’s the only time when the construction will officially commence. A loft conversion may be finished in as fast as 4 weeks or can take as long as 10 weeks, depending on the work that needs to be accomplished.
