The positives of a Birmingham loft conversion
Ground floor extensions cause a large level of disruption and intrusion to occur within your family home. By converting your already standing loft into an additional living space, the build work is able to be eliminated whilst having our team work on the highest floor of your home will also mean that disruption is kept to a minimum, allowing you to carry on with your day-to-day lifestyle as normal.
Depending on the complexity of your conversion, the timeframe from design work to completion may be faster than you think. Whilst loft conversions create a way for the formation of additional living space without causing disruption to the entire household, they also prove to be the cleanest, fastest and safest way to increase the size of your home.
Homeowners are often under the misconception that if the footprint of their Birmingham home is unable to be expanded, they are incapable of creating the additional space that they are seeking. By altering the space within your already built home, you are able to simply and effectively convert your unused loft into a unique area, designed and built custom to you and the requirements of your household.
A new living space on the top floor of your home allows untold amounts of light to enter, creating a space which becomes a physical breath of fresh air. From bedrooms and en-suites, to playrooms and studies, the ways in which loft conversions are utilised throughout Birmingham vary from home to home. The options are endless, so you really can afford to think outside the box and make yours original.
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.
