Your loft conversion in Enfield questions answered
Have a question about loft conversions in Enfield? We’re happy to help. Read our answers to the questions that our customers frequently ask us.
How long does a loft conversion in Enfield take?
Depending on the size and type, most loft conversions in Enfield take around 12 weeks.
Will I need to move out during the project?
No – it’s safe to carry on living inside your Enfield 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 in Enfield?
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 in Enfield 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 in Enfield add value to a home?
Yes – it will add from 20% to 30% upwards depending on the size, design and type.

Case study Loft conversion in Enfield
Parsonage Lane, EN2
The opportunity to create more space
Mr Mehta was looking to convert his large loft space for his teenage son who sought a haven to relax and study in peace away from the younger siblings.
How we can achieve a conversion like this for your home
Mr Mehta was keen for his son to excel at his GCSE’s and wanted the loft space converted to accommodate his son’s new bedroom and workspace. A fixed price contract was agreed with our surveyor who was awarded the contract.
Parsonage Lane has a variety of property types and our client’s property had a great loft space - perfect for a large loft conversion.
Architects were instructed to prepare plans to be signed off by the client, and these were then sent to Enfield planning department for a letter of lawful development as this project was classed as a permitted development.
Once this was received scaffolding was erected, and our construction team was on site working from the structural engineering plans produced for the project.
Steels and the floor structure were fitted, followed by the structural walls and roof of the loft.
Insulation used for the conversion included Rockwool for the floor and internal walls, and Recticel and Ecotherm polyisocyanurate (or PIR) insulation for the walls and the roof. This retains heat in the loft, and stops the loft over heating in the summer, a common issue in lofts where the incorrect insulation is used.
All construction, insulation and steel was checked by building control who then prepared a report.
Plumbers and electricians carried out their first fixing, after which we fitted Gyproc plasterboards to the walls and ceilings.
Two large gable ended windows were fitted to allow light to flood in and create a fresh and bright room. Followed by the stairs being fitted. All stairs are bespoke and tailor-made for each client. The design is agreed with the client before production.
The plastering team completed their job in two days and the electrician and plumber came in for the second fixing. The carpenter followed with snagging ready for completion.
