The positives of an East London loft conversion
- Ground floor extensions cause a great deal of intrusion and disruption to your home, as well as your family life. A loft conversion takes place on an entirely different storey of your home, one which you are not accustomed to using, allowing you to lose track of just how much work is being carried out and resulting in the other storeys remaining almost untouched and functioning as normal for your family.
- We can complete certain styles of loft conversions in a number of weeks. Whilst creating no major mess or disruption to your home, these prove to be the cleanest, fastest and safest way of gaining that at all important additional space. It goes without saying that the more complex a conversion may be, the longer the build will take, but as we pride ourselves on keeping the build away from your daily lives, we allow you and your home to function as normal throughout the process, no matter how long.
- You could use your bright, airy new living space in multiple ways. Whether it be that highly sought-after games room, an extra couple of bedrooms or an office space to avoid that commute through busy London town, the options are endless.
- Living in the busy area of East London, it may be impossible to increase your homes footprint and extend outwards. By altering the space you already have within your home, you can convert your unused loft into a unique living space tailored specifically to you.
Your loft conversion questions answered
Have a question about loft conversions? We’re happy to help. Read our answers to the questions that our customers frequently ask us.
How long does a loft conversion take?
Depending on the size and type, most loft conversions take around 12 weeks.
Will I need to move out during the project?
No – it’s safe to carry on living inside the property. We work from the scaffolding before the stairs go in. Any disruption you experience will mainly come from noise.
Where will you place our new staircase?
We will be able to fit your staircase around your existing layout and will find an option to suit you. If possible, we will try to fit your new staircase over the existing staircase so that it fits seamlessly within your property.
Do I need planning permission for a loft conversion?
This depends on your location and type of property – all flats require planning, but if you live in a house that isn’t in a designated area, then permitted development is usually used and no planning is required. There are many other factors to take into account and one of our surveyors can advise further.
How much does a loft conversion cost?
Most cost between £30,000 and £50,000. This depends on the size and type – bigger and more complicated jobs take longer and therefore will cost more. See pricing information for further details.
What is a party wall agreement and do I need one for a loft conversion?
A party wall agreement (PWA) is required if you have a semi-detached or a terraced property and you are working within or near your neighbour’s boundary. We can advise when the surveyor visits.
Does a loft conversion add value to a home?
Yes – it will add from 20% to 30% upwards depending on the size, design and type.
How much head height do you need for a loft conversion?
If you have a clear head height of 2m then a loft conversion may be possible. Our surveyor will need to assess this to confirm.
What’s possible with your loft conversion?
These are some of the build possibilities you might want to consider for your loft conversion:
