Will my Haringey loft work for a conversion?
As loft conversion specialists, we pride ourselves on being able to create a living space within lofts where others can’t. No height, space or size of any roof or loft will turn us away from bringing your dreams to life. Whether you are interested in converting your semi-detached, terraced, detached or bungalow property, we will use our experience and skills to produce a loft space which you are proud of. Transforming lofts since 1989 has given us the knowledge and expertise required to convert even the most complex loft. We also have a 98% success rate in gaining approval for planning permission, so no space will be too tough for us to handle.
How would the process work for my Haringey home?
By contacting us by filling out one of our contact forms, or calling us, you will be able to arrange for us to come and visit your property, inspect your loft space and show you a collection of suitable examples that you can explore for your own home. We will then draw up a no obligation plan, suitable for what could work in your space. These designs cost £600 but we offer them free of charge. We will also be able to give you a ballpark quote in relation to the plan. In our specialist team, we will have an expert of each trade on hand whenever they are required through the entire process. From the design and build team, to project management, they will all play a part in converting your home hands on. The completion date of the build will depend on the complexity of your loft space and designs, but we guarantee to have each loft converted to the highest of standards while also tying in with the look and feel of the rest of the property, creating a large, solid family home to be proud of.
Whilst completing the build side of your Haringey loft conversion, we will also ensure that your entire home, not just your new loft space, complies with the current building regulations. We will fit interconnected smoke alarms in the most used rooms throughout your property and make sure that all doors are in good quality. Our building regulations manager will visit the property on several occasions to check that everything is fully compliant throughout the process.
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:
