Over 1,000 lofts converted since 1989
The beautiful county of Hampshire contains some of the most interesting protected buildings in the UK but, often, extending these properties to create extra space can be problematic. A quality loft conversion can avoid the need to adjust the outward appearance of your Hampshire home whilst still creating bright, light, and airy accommodation inside the loft space. Touchstone Lofts have been creating beautiful and unique loft conversions across Hampshire since 1989. Our local team understands the best way to sympathetically design an amazing space that meets your needs with minimum fuss.

The positives of a Hampshire loft extension
Your Hampshire home may be unspoilt by external extensions and building work. Our discreet designs can work sympathetically with your property to create a beautiful internal space.
A smart design will exploit the height of your Hampshire home providing natural light and uninterrupted views as well as added privacy, from both inside and outside of the house. Pedestrians will be unaware of your third-floor sanctuary, allowing you to feel relaxed and out of sight while enjoying the bright and airy space new to your home.
Cost effective upgrade
Choosing a loft conversion allows you to upgrade your home without incurring the considerable costs that are associated with moving to a new property, such as estate agent fees, stamp duty and legal costs. Plus, there’s no need to leave the area that you love.

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:
