Most frequent questions and answers
The cost to convert your loft varies depending on the type of house and the required conversion. Most dormer conversions fall in the £37,500 – £60,000 range while more expensive options like hip-to-gable average around £45,000 – £65,000. The most costly Mansard loft conversions start at about £45,000 – but often exceed £70,000
Absolutely! Adding a loft conversion is one of the best ways to make your home more energy efficient. As part of the building regulations, it is mandatory to install insulation upon conversion. There are two types of insulation available – these will be determined by either your local authority or an approved building inspector when they come to inspect your house. It is important to make sure you are using the right type of insulation for your needs and this can be determined by consulting a professional. By incorporating an energy-efficient loft conversion, you will reduce your household’s carbon footprint whilst also saving money on energy bills.
In most cases, yes. The current ceiling joists won’t be sturdy enough to support a floor if you convert your attic. You’ll need entirely new, up-to-code joists; your structural engineer can tell you how many and what strength they need to be. The new joists must go between the load-bearing walls in the loft and be a little higher than the existing ceiling plasterwork. The space below the end of each joist should stop any new floor from sagging or putting too much strain on the ceiling joists. You must get this right, as it will affect the safety and stability of your loft conversion.
The answer depends on what type of loft conversion you are having done. Rear dormer conversions on terraced or semi-detached properties typically take 4-6 weeks to complete, while hip-to-gable conversions on a semi-detached property usually take 5-7 weeks. These are just guidelines though, as there may be factors that can hinder our tradespeople on any given day, such as weather conditions. We have our in-house team so there’s no need to worry about subcontracted labour or last-minute letdowns. Rest assured that we will work hard and efficiently to ensure your loft conversion is finished promptly. We are confident that we will complete your loft conversion work within the given timescales.
Loft conversions improve your quality of living. Loft conversions are ideal for small living spaces, such as flats. But before the work can begin, a few details must be considered. The first and possibly most important aspect is the leasehold implications imposed on the space you wish to convert. Before you use or alter the loft space in any way, make sure to read and understand the terms and conditions of your lease. If the lease implies that you own the loft, you may need consent from the freeholder to make changes. Most likely, you can find information about this procedure in your lease. However, if you’re considering making changes to a flat that requires permits, keep in mind that the next step would be to submit detailed design plans to your local council. Not only that, depending on the scope of the proposed changes, you may need approval from other residents if it affects their property as well. For example, water tanks or piping structures. Moreover, if the existing fire and safety regulations need to be altered, appropriate substitutes that comply with the new safety and fire regulations would have to be installed. Lastly, soundproofing all walls of the living space is ideal to avoid disturbing your neighbours. The process may be lengthy for a loft conversion in a flat, but the result promises tranquility and added space and value to your living space.
