How we can achieve a conversion like this for your home

Touchstone Lofts are experts at converting lofts and are particularly good a hip to gable loft conversions.

Loft conversions in Prospect Road will not require planning permission as they will have permitted development rights.

A letter of lawful development can be obtained from the local planning office.

The new stairs will be located over the existing stairs and there is normally no loss of accommodation on the first floor.

A bedroom and en-suite can be created quite easily with a hip to gable and rear dormer loft conversion.

There will be a choice of windows on the front slope of the roof.  We can fit as many Velux roof lights as you require.

In the rear dormer you can fit windows looking out on your garden.  You can also fit a Juliet Balcony with glass balustrade.  These do not require planning permission – they are regarded as permitted developments.

A loft conversion will add significant value to your property probably more than you will spend on the cost of the loft conversion.
