What are the benefits of a Newham loft conversion?
As loft conversion specialists in Newham, we can guarantee that we will produce a living space within your loft which is just as practical as it is stunning. Using only the highest quality materials, the finish will be second to none, allowing your converted space to be aesthetically pleasing both internally and externally.
Converting your unused loft space will prove to be the more cost-effective option compared to relocating or opting for a ground level extension as you won’t need to find the extra cash for those hefty fees associated with moving, or dig up your garden space to lay footings and foundations which will, in return, add an additional 30% value to your property. By keeping your garden space and finding a way to create an extra room or two, your home will be able to keep its kerb appeal at a high.
A project manager will oversee the entire conversion process to allow that everything continues to run smoothly, as well as our building regulations officer attending the site regularly and assessing the safety levels of each stage of the conversion. All work will be carried out on the new, third floor of your property which will allow you to continue living at home throughout the conversion with minimal disruption caused to your daily life.

Storage inspiration for your loft conversion
How will I use my Newham loft conversion?
It is common for homeowners to have the assumption that a loft conversion will be the same within any home, with a standard bedroom and en suite bathroom. Whilst this is a good use of valuable space, there are several other options which you are able to explore and consider for your home. As well as assisting you with the design layout, we will also show you relevant examples of how to use your loft space to the best of its ability, ranging from storage solution ideas to underfloor heating. If you have a family with young children, then the idea of a playroom on the top floor of your home may work for you, or if you have teenagers, then a games or cinema room provides a space to unwind and relax, as well as show off to their friends. You may also wish to escape the crowded streets of Newham and create a chill-out zone on the third storey of your home, away from the hustle and bustle of the streets below. With Touchstone Lofts, you have the opportunity to make your loft space as unique as you wish, tailoring it to your needs. We will produce whatever you require, turning your home dreams into reality.
Our team will work closely with you and your requests to transform your empty loft space into a functional living area. Whilst finding the best positioning for the staircase, we will also discuss the ways in which to bring the space to life. Whether that would be by installing underfloor heating, fitting a Juliette balcony or Velux windows to let in fresh air and maximum light, or your choice of electrical lighting to suit any room or tone, you can rest assured that we will do it all.
Why choose Touchstone Lofts for your Newham loft conversion?
We pride ourselves on the ability to work as a close-knit team and create practical and functional living spaces within lofts where other companies can’t. No matter what size or shape your loft space is, or the angle of your roof, we will work together to create a realistic plan and bring it to life. With our 98% success rate for planning permission applications, there is almost nothing that will stand in our way of producing a new and unique loft space to enhance the look and feel of your home. With constant checks from our project manager and building regulations officer, you can ensure that not only will the design and build work be second to none, but the process carried out and the safety of your home during and after the conversion process will also be unrivalled.
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:
