What Type of Loft Conversions Can be Undertaken in Stanmore?

1. A roof light loft conversions is the most cost effective as the only change is made on the loft by adding windows so very little structural work is required.


2. Dormer loft conversions are the most popular option as lights are easily added and increasing the amount of roof space will offer a full headroom. To add a bigger box dormer with flat roof, they changed the sides or rear of roof structure of the house.

3. The hip-to-gable conversion are made on semi-detached homes or found on the side of end-terrace. When the hipped or sloping side of the roof is removed, a vertical gable is built straight up.

4. A new box extension is included in the loft conversion of a Gable-to-gable loft is the space spanning between each gable end. To act like ‘bookends’, you better increase the length of the gable.

5. The Mansard loft conversions will create new volume. To complete the process, replace either one or both of your roof slopes with sloping sides that are extremely steep and over the top place a flat roof.

6. When the existing loft space is not fitted for conversion, the modular type of extensions is used. New modular rooms are manufactured in the factory after all the proper measurements are taken. Then the new module is delivered as a module and installed after the existing roof is removed.

A little history about the Stanmore Area

Stanmore is an expansive and expensive suburb that runs into an open countryside north-east of Harrow Weald and west of Brockley Hill. Based on the ancient parish of Great Stanmore, it includes the southern slopes of hills rising to Stanmore Hill with its highest points of London, 152 meters (499 ft) high.

I always have a special gratitude in my heart for Stanmore was among the first boroughs to advocate loft conversion.

Visit the Lively Stanmore in North London

The suburb is dotted by numerous tiny restaurants and cafés, many taverns, several extraordinary shops like one store offering natural health products and some boutique stores selling unique articles. Dominating central Stanmore are two gigantic supermarkets that become the town hubs on weekends. Surrounding the area are places to eat as Costa and Prezzo Coffee for while in Stanmore, my tummy was always full of tempting goodies sold in these stores.

Why Loft Conversion is best for Stanmore Residents?

Stanmore is one of the best places to live in London and many of the homes for sale or for rent are suited to loft conversions. Clients get the extra space they want, and many homeowners realized that loft conversion does not only give extra space but also increases their property value tremendously.

To accommodate a growing family, you need extra space to live comfortably or you might want to beat the traffic and work from home.  This is your only option from facing the expense of moving to find a bigger property. It is tedious to move out from a place you know and like so why not extend it? Inspect your home for possible places to convert. This is the time to consider a loft conversion or home extension.

What are the three major problems you often encounter in Loft Conversions?

1. Some homeowners complained of unexpected overrun of cost that leaves them frustrated and dissatisfied with the project;

 2. There are often delays of schedule that invalidate the completion date stated in the contract causing the family inconvenience; and

3. Workmanship is inferior that makes you feel like you are not getting what was promised by the building company.

For me, the best solution is to get a company that has years of experience in successfully operating and running this king of business, A good company has many clients vouching for their good service.

Can you undertake a Loft Conversion yourself?

If you are enthusiastic about loft conversion and plan to take an active role in the essential work in planning and hands-on operation of the task, it is necessary for you to learn everything from top to bottom. However, doing it yourself doesn't mean doing it alone as you can work alongside with a pro. It is true that DIY projects, including loft conversion are extremely satisfying however the complexity and experience required to undertake a full loft conversion is vital. 

You might commit mistakes which can result in more expenses, or you might cause a risk for your family’s safety. So, my advice is to give the work to a professional loft conversion company like ours and just sit back, relax, and enjoy your loft new space when it is done.

Reasons why you need extra space in your home

Talking with our old clients and potential ones, we ask them why they need extra space at home. And for the record, we included their responses on our site.

Mrs. Wilson – We really need an extra room at home with my growing family. My baby is due next month, and I want to fix him a nursery that is airy and full of sunlight. We build a Velux Loft for this client which did not require planning permission. She was able to take her office in the loft and the box room was used as a nursery.

G.P. – I decided to work from home, and I need my own office. Commuting to the city everyday with the distance and travel are too taxing for me as I just pass the golden line. I would be comfortable and productive working in my loft private office. Gareth was very accomodating with his requirements and simply wanted additional space for his office and we built him a perfect loft just for that. 

Myra - There are endless reasons why I need extra space at home. I see junks and empty boxes piling and a better place for them is the loft until I can dispose them properly than or will convert the space into a lovely and cozy room that will add value to my home. - We added a Dormer Loft to Myra's house which increased the value of house by over 15%

Dr.S – I might transfer my practice from home so I need a clinic.  However, I want the conversion to be quiet and not distracting my family at home but I was assured that the project will not cause mess and clutter. Our client wanted a large loft conversion, so we opted for the full mansard option. Client had a good budget and was flexible with the timelines too. The end result was a light and airy loft that was private and quiet, exactly what the doctor ordered. 

Aarav A  - We have our loft converted years ago and my wife used it according to her fancy. It used to be a nursery, then a sewing room, a music room, a study room. I do not know what it will be next year. Probably, it will be her reading room. He was one of our first clients in Stanmore and by his comments you can gauge that how many ways a loft can be used.
