Hip to Gable conversions are popular among Ealing homeowners with semi-detached or detached properties, end of terraces, and bungalows. The existing sloping roof is turned into a flat gable to increase available space. Depending on various factors, a hip to gable extension may or may not require planning permission. We can help you with this and apply on your behalf.
Dormer loft conversions are the most common type requested by Ealing residents. With a dormer conversion we extend the existing roof vertically to create extra floor space and headroom. To achieve this, it is important that at least half of the current floor space has a ceiling height of at least two metres or higher. Dormers usually do not require planning permission.
A Velux, or roof light loft conversion in Ealing is the most simple and economical type available. With a Velux, the roof remains unchanged, other than the installation of attractive flush Velux windows to give plenty of natural light. Typically, a Velux attic conversion does not need planning permission as the roof structure remains unchanged. This is the perfect solution if you want minimal outlay and disruption.
The London Borough of Ealing is located in West London, and is part of Outer London. Population-wise, it is the third largest London Borough, and covering 21.23 square miles, it is the 11th largest in size. Ealing is located mainly in West London with a small area in North West London.
Historically, Ealing was a rural village in the county of Middlesex; a parish under the clerical jurisdiction of the parish priest. But as London grew, Ealing formed part of Greater London. Ealing is located at a distance of 12 miles from central London, and with a very diverse ethnic population, and plenty of local restaurants, shops and pubs, the Borough of Ealing is a popular choice for property hunters. With the average property price currently at £735,181, housing in Ealing is considerably cheaper than neighbouring Hammersmith where the average price paid between 2016 and 2017 was £912,839.
Ealing has a good mix of building types, ranging from Victorian terraced property, perfect for loft conversions to high-rise developments.
Here at Touchstone Lofts, we have converted many lofts in Ealing. If you have a young growing family, a loft conversion can provide the necessary vital extra space saving you the considerable expense and hassle of moving.
If you have a loft space in your roof, more often than not a loft conversion can be done. There are not many properties that cannot be converted. In Ealing we have converted lofts where the roof space has been very shallow and the ridge height is only 2metres high. During conversions like these, figuring out where the stairs will be located is usually a challenge, but with more than two decades of experience and trained experts who design the stairs in a way that limits the loss of any living space we are confident we can overcome this should it be a problem.
The conversion size is dependent on a few factors that include the footprint of the loft-space and the head height in the loft. Space can be added be adding dormers, which effectively steal space from the airspace above your roof. We offer a free feasibility study, which involves our consultant visiting your property and providing you with a no obligation quotation.
