After finally concluding that you want to have a loft conversion for your house in Surrey, you must make yourself aware of the factors you need to consider for this home upgrade to be completed. There is so much to be done for a loft conversion to be a success. And the most important thing that you need to consider so that this home upgrade will be a beautiful one is confirming that the available area that you want to convert is an ideal space for the transformation. For us to be able to build you a charming loft, you must check the roof space available. The measurement must follow the standard height. To take the measurement, all you need to do is run a tape measure from the floor to the ceiling at the tallest part of the room. This is considered an easy task before beginning the process of a loft conversion.

Make sure that you get 2.2 meters or more because this is the height you need if you want a comfy loft. The next thing to consider is the age structure of your Surrey house and the style of the roof you have. Traditional homes that were built in the pre-1960s are mostly considered to be more conversion-friendly because of the roof it has which is normally a rafter. If you currently live in a modernly designed house that features a trussed roof, a more complex construction will be needed to accomplish a loft conversion. Together with this, you must also put in mind the pitch angle your roof has. By getting at least 30 degrees, you’ll be guaranteed with a wider headroom after the loft conversion is complete. Finally, you need to check if your chimneys or ventilation pipes will cause inconvenience while the construction of the loft conversion is ongoing, because if they are expect that the construction will be more complicated.


A loft conversion in Surrey doesn’t usually require planning permission since it’s a permitted development right for your property. However, there are still aspects to confirm that may require planning permission before getting ahead with the loft conversion. The first thing to check is the location of your house. If your house is in a conservation area, planning permission will be required before the loft conversion begins. Proceeding with a loft conversion without this permit may result in a fine or imprisonment. Next, is the construction involved. If the type of loft conversion you’re going to get will include a grand transformation in the architectural design of your house, you must obtain planning permission first before proceeding with the construction. This is because the extension may exceed to the existing roof height your property have.

How and Why of Loft Conversions in Surrey


The question of how and why usually arise as to how to get your loft conversion done or why to get your loft conversion done. While we have already told you about how the loft conversion could help you in increasing your house’s price and getting more in return for your property, there are few other reasons that we can help you with.

  • Building upwards instead of outwards  -

Planning to renovate your house and adding extensions would require a lot of work and not to forget, an extension would require the permission of the council. Loft conversion makes the most out of the waste space with the utilisation of it in the most effective as well as required space possible.

  • Additional Bath   -

You can never run out of baths. Having an additional bath is a bane rather than a boon, knowing that you will not have to wait in queue for your turn to show up, in the most difficult manners possible.

  • More Storage   -

You can always run out of storage because things will keep adding up and your space will be filled. Having an organised space for your stuff and future additions would be a benefit that you didn’t know you needed.

  • Take care of the warmth  -

Most of the heat or insulation in your house is lost due to the loft. Having an extra space or room in place of the loft will only let your house remain more insulated.

Opting for Loft conversions is a wise decision and a brilliant way of improving your home. There are a lot of factors that affect the loft conversion that you’d need to take care of, like the house condition, the design type, the materials required, the permissions, budget etc.

  • House Condition   -

Three important things are generally inspected when converting a loft. The Internal Height, Roof pitch and the Footprint -

  •  The Internal height is nothing but the headspace, which is crucial for the livability factor.
  •  The roof pitch is the proper angle that will provide roof conversion.
  •  The footprint is the basic measurement that is necessarily adhering to the internal rules.
  • Permissions  -

 If you want to have a different renovation that might exceed specified limits as provided by the council, then you will need to ask for planning permission. You'll have to submit a full planning application. Some properties don't have developmental rights so you should be sure to follow up with the council. On the contrary, you don't generally need the permissions from the council to get your loft converted, but you can always check it to be a hundred per cent sure. 

  • Design   -

The design of your home and your loft will be the prime role player, as to what your loft would be converted in. Considering the types of Loft conversions that are mentioned, your loft will be given the appropriate transformation.

  • Budget   -

Now your budget will tell a lot about the kind of loft conversion that would take place in your house. Considering the amount of money that can be invested vs the amount of work that would be invested are two of the prime players that will determine your loft.

A successful loft conversion is a definite asset to your home. It can provide useful extra space and add value to your property. However, a poorly converted loft can reduce your property’s value and in some cases compromise your safety and the structural integrity of your home. So, make sure that you seek proper assistance when it comes to a loft conversion.

With Loft Conversion Surrey, you can never go wrong. As you can see there are many elements that you ought to consider when planning a loft conversion. If you want to make sure it's done right, we most definitely are your best guides and we make sure to ensure that you have a quality loft conversion that stands the test of time and adds value to your property.
