How could a loft conversion work for your Essex home?

Affordability
Converting your loft is one of the most cost-effective ways to increase the amount of space in your home. By using space which already exists, you are stopping yourself from increasing your home’s footprint. A loft conversion also allows a high amount of natural light in, decreasing the amount of artificial lighting you would need to have installed.

 

Enhanced Lifestyle
If you ever dreamt of that large glamorous space within your home, with lots of light, air and open views, then a loft conversion would be the right choice for you. A conversion at the top of your home will create a separate space the games room you never thought you’d have or could create your own Zen space with views across Essex and a ton of natural light. Passers-by will also be unaware of the additional living space to the top of the house, creating privacy for you and your family.

Avoid the hassle of moving
Moving out of the up-and-coming Essex area may not be the ideal choice for you and your family. After all, moving can be expensive and can often provide very little increased space. Creating additional room within the footprint of your existing home is often a far more attractive option. You will also have no need to worry about added costs such as estate agent or stamp duty fees.

 

Growing family
If your family is growing and your life is becoming busier, the thought of re-locating can be far too stressful. A hassle-free loft conversion could fit easily into your busy life. Our team will be able to work out of sight and out of mind with minimal mess and disruption.

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.

Where will you place the new staircase
