Types of loft conversions for Blackheath homes
These are the various types of loft conversion we can design and build:
Exactly What your Blackheath Home Needs
Every home is unique. Even if designs are somewhat similar in neighbouring homes, no two homes are exactly the same. This is also because no two families are the same. This is what guides our loft conversions. We don’t have a ‘one-size-fits-all’ design because we prefer to tailor the lofts we build according to the preferences, needs, and lifestyles of our clients. This also means we take client input seriously.
Once we have the design down, we’ll take care of the rest. You can leave the plumbing, the electricals, the heating, and other factors to us. We’ll make sure your new loft is not only beautiful, but also safe and up to standards. You’ll also always have access to the project manager in charge of your conversion. We’ll keep you regularly updated, or only when it’s convenient to you. It’s up to you.

Transform your Blackheath home with a stunning loft conversion
What do you need to know about a loft conversion for your Blackheath 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. We will show you a range of options to help fit your all-important budget and make the most of each allowance.
Compelling Loft Conversion Perks
Freedom of Space
Enjoy the freedom that additional space can give you. Whether you use your new loft as a guest room, a home office, or an entertainment hub, more space means more options. We have a range of ideas to help you decide as well.
Just because your family or home business is growing, doesn’t automatically mean you need a bigger and significantly more expensive place. Not to mention the headaches and costs associated with moving. Loft conversions can give you the option of expanding and maximising the space you already have.
Return on Investment
Loft conversion is indeed an expense, but aside from the space and flexibility it offers, adding a loft to your home is also an automatic improvement to its value. Space is one of the best commodities out there and making smart use of it is the modern way.
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.
