The LOFT CONVERSION PROCESS in Staines

The first step in completing a loft conversion is to get the plans drawn up. This can be done by our professional architect. We will give you an idea of the cost and how much the conversion will cost.

Roof light conversion

The first step in the roof light conversion process is to secure the necessary permissions. In case of a terraced house, this can mean securing the consent of your neighbours. It may also be necessary to acquire a party wall agreement for any extensions. However, in most cases, loft light conversions do not require such an agreement.

There are several types of loft conversions. The type you choose will depend on a variety of factors, including the type of property, the type of roof, the style and height of the property, the type of planning regulations and the budget you have available.

Hip-to-gable conversion

The hip-to-gable conversion process can add valuable space to many types of homes. However, this type of loft conversion requires professional help and is best performed by a reputable loft conversion company. Choosing a company like Loft Conversion London will ensure that your conversion is both technically sound and in full compliance with building regulations.

A hip-to-gable loft conversion is an excellent option for houses with a hipped roof, but can also be used in large detached properties. A hip-to-gable conversion takes advantage of the natural slope of a home's roof, increasing the height of the rooms. It is an excellent choice for a home in South East Staines, as the hip-to-gable conversion process allows for additional head height.

Hip-to-gable conversion with balcony

A hip-to-gable conversion is a type of loft conversion in which the new space is incorporated into the existing space, without overhanging the original walls. This type of extension is also not likely to increase the roof area beyond the slope of the original roof. As such, it is more energy-efficient and has less impact on your energy bills. Moreover, the new space must comply with certain building regulations, which ensure that it is structurally safe. These regulations focus on specific construction aspects and materials, as well as the layout. In some cases, the design of the new space is impacted by these regulations, including the addition of a balcony.

Victorian and Edwardian Houses

The most common loft conversions are done on these types of houses across London. These houses mostly have high ceilings and large rooms and a conversion works best when the design retains the natural character of the building.

End of Terraced and Semi Detached Houses

If you live in an end of terraced or semi-detached house, your property is ideal for a loft conversion. There are two main types of loft conversion that are suitable for semi-detached and end of terrace homes: hip to gable loft conversions and dormer loft conversions.

1920s and 1930s Houses

Many properties in the UK were build in the 1920s or 1930s (pre-war period). Such houses are great for loft conversions, you can easily add either a dormer loft conversion, a hip to gable loft conversion or a Velux loft conversion. The type we build will depend on the structure of your home and roof we can guide you on the best approach.

Flats, Maisonettes and Conservation Areas

If you happen to live in a conservation area, the local council may not permit you to have a rear dormer, but they might let you have a mansard or a combination of Velux roof windows and small dormers. Loft conversions in flats and Maisonettes are the ultimate way of gaining that precious extra space.
