Transform your Bexley home with a stunning loft conversion
How will the process work for my Bexley home?
Offering a fully inclusive service means that you won’t need to seek assistance from any other trades. From design and build work, to heating and electric, we will cover it all. During the initial meet, we will assess your homes specific requirements and listen to any ideas that you would like to put forward. From these factors, we will be able to sketch up a free, no obligation design worth £600 and give you a ballpark quote. Throughout the conversion, you and your family can continue living in the home and, with all work being carried out on a separate floor, life can resume as normal. We pride ourselves on completing each conversion to the highest standard, no matter how complex, and will carry out all work with minimal mess and disruption, right through to completion.
The safety measures
There are several safety measures to be considered with current building regulations. Our specialist team will be able to walk you through each process step by step. To comply to fire safety measures, homes will require a fire door to be fitted at the entrance to the loft conversion, as well as observe that all doors in the property are in good quality. Our building regulations officer will also check the home at various points throughout the build to ensure that everything is fully compliant, avoiding any issues from occurring once the building process is complete. For your safety, we will also fit interconnected smoke alarms in the rooms within your home which are used most frequently.
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.
