●       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.

●       Mansard Loft conversion - A 72-degree inward slanting back wall distinguishes this. It's a flexible alternative that works for various properties, although it might require planning permission.

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.
