What are the benefits of a loft conversion in Dagenham?
With Dagenham being a highly popular location to live, the room to extend your home outwards isn’t always available. By expanding into the loft, you are making every inch of your home habitable. You could use the space to create a variety of rooms which will all give your home its own unique vibe. Your loft would be converted with your plans and ideas in mind, allowing the outcome to be something of which you are proud of. By creating extra bedrooms with an additional bathroom, you could give each family member a room of their own or have enough space for visitors to stay. With a cinema or games room, you can create a social hub within the comfort of your home which has the capability to please everyone. By making use of the sunlight filling the room, you could use the additional space as your bright and spacious relaxation zone, keeping away from the hustle and bustle of family life downstairs. The options to explore are endless and the choice is yours. If you can dream it, we can build it.
Planning permission can be a confusing and lengthy process and by getting it wrong, you could be looking at additional time and costs. During the initial meeting, our specialist team will assess the requirements and needs specific to your home and know how best to process any application. We have a 98% planning success rate, which will save you the time and hassle and allow you to rest assured that we will have it covered.
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.

These are some of the build possibilities you might want to consider for your loft conversion:
