Types of loft conversions for West Midlands homes
These are the various types of loft conversion we can design and build:
What a loft conversion can give you
Additional living space
Adding a new storey to your living space allows accommodation for extra residents such as older family members. Lofts can also be transformed into a home gym, a personal study, or a playroom for the kids. Whatever you need, our team will work it out for you.
Decreased costs and footprint
A loft conversion offers a perfect alternative if you are starting to outgrow your home, but want to avoid the hassle and costs of moving. It also gives you additional room without increasing your footprint and sacrificing valuable garden space.
Higher resale value
A loft conversion can add as much as 30% to the overall value of your property, making it more attractive to potential buyers.
Planning permission and permitted developments in West Midlands
The hassle of getting granted planning permission tends to discourage most homeowners from pursuing their loft goals.
As your trusted building partners, we will identify the relevant requirements of your home and act accordingly. For most detached, semi-detached or terraced properties, conversions may be carried out under permitted development regulations. But if you live in a flat or maisonette, or if your property is located in a conservation area, we may need to obtain planning permission first. With our 98% success rate in achieving approval for planning, trust us to deliver guaranteed results no matter the challenge at hand.
Transform your West Midlands home with a stunning loft conversion
What do you need to know about a loft conversion for your West Midlands home?
What type of loft is right for your home?
Do you have a hip to gable roof, a low pitch eave or have a reduced head height loft? Do you need a dormer conversion, a Velux solution or a flat roof extension? Whatever your concerns or worries, let us answer them with a bespoke design solution that considers all of the technical requirements suited specifically to your conversion.
Is planning permission difficult to process?
Are you confused by planning approval, party wall agreements, building control or fire regulations? Our expert team understand exactly what is and isn’t required for your loft conversion and will walk you through each process step by step.
How long will the whole process take?
Whilst some loft conversions can be completed within weeks, we have delivered some complex conversions that have taken many months of planning, design, and construction. Our experienced team will assess your needs during the initial consultation and quickly provide you with an accurate schedule for completion of your new loft conversion.
What does it all cost?
Every design is bespoke and every requirement is unique. Once we have assessed your needs and inspected your home during the initial meeting, we can quickly provide you with accurate, realistic and robust budgets, along with a free design.
