The sort of loft conversion you choose could significantly impact the total cost of the project.

● Dormer Loft conversion entails altering the loft area to accommodate a window and a flat-roofed addition.
● Hip to gable Loft conversion - To help maximize space, you can replace portions of the roof's sloping side with a gable wall.

How long does it take to convert a loft?
Several things determine the length of time it takes to convert your loft. We complete most of the lofts we undertake within 8 weeks so we're confident of turning your unused loft space into a part of your living space.
The time of year may also have a role. If you're planning a more comprehensive loft conversion that includes removing any part of a wall or the roof, the weather will play a major role. It's advisable to talk to your surveyor on the day about your conversion plans to understand the timeline.
Should I hire an architect to help design my loft conversion?
Depending on the structure and the designs you want, a few properties may require obtaining consents and permits, but Loft conversion London's professional team will take care of everything.
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.
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.
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.
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.
