Reasons for a loft conversion in Bromley

Here are three of the top reasons to convert your Bromley loft:

More space for living.

If your loft in Bromley isn’t being lived in, it’s wasted space. Get more room for your growing family, or design that dream bedroom you’ve always promised yourself.

More money in your pocket.

It’s much cheaper to build a loft conversion in Bromley than it is to move house. It’s usually cheaper than having an extension built onto your property as well.

More value on your Bromley home.

The average loft conversion in Bromley will add 20% to the price of a property.

Loft conversion design in Bromley is our area of expertise

Design is considered from the very start – we don’t make any false promises.

We think about your neighbours too, and whether their property will be overlooked. It’s important that everyone is happy so that your project doesn’t get held up, and our plans are designed to please.

Your loft conversion questions in Bromley 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 in Bromley take?

Depending on the size and type, most loft conversions in Bromley take around 12 weeks.

 

Will I need to move out during the project?

No – it’s safe to carry on living inside your Bromley 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 Bromley?

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 Bromley 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 in Bromley?

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 your Bromley 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 in Bromley?

If you have a clear head height of 2m then a loft conversion in Bromley may be possible. Our surveyor will need to assess this to confirm.

How we can achieve a conversion like this for your home

Durham Road consists of mainly terraced properties that have really good ridge heights which are good for loft conversions. The most important aspect of any loft space is the ridge height.

The surveyor sketched out a loft conversion designed for the client.  A fixed price contract was agreed.

The architect drew out the plans for the client to approve.  Once these were approved they were sent to the planning department for a letter of lawful development (no planning permission was required for this loft conversion as the property had permitted development rights).

The structural engineer completed plans for the construction teams.  He also sent a copy to building control, who would go on to conduct three inspections during the loft conversion process.

Scaffolding was erected, and the materials (including the steels) were delivered directly onto the scaffold.  The majority of the works were actioned from the scaffold, and there was little disturbance to the customer (until the stairs were fitted).

The first job was to fit the steels and the floor construction.  Once this was completed the dormer was built.  The dormer was clad in Marley tiles and, the roof was made watertight.

The walls and the ceiling were insulated using Recticel and Ecotherm (PIR) insulation (Polyisocyanurate insulation).

This insulation has a low thermal conductivity and reduces heat exchange thus, insulating the loft and preventing the loft from heating up excessively in the summer months.  We also used Rockwool insulation - this has many properties including sound, heat insulation and is a fire retardant.

The stairs were then fitted (design agreed with the customer).  Windows were fitted in the dormer and Velux rooflights fitted in the slopes.

Plumber and electrician did their first fixing.

Gyproc plaster boards were fitted to the ceilings and walls and then the plastering was done by the specialist team.

Plumbers and electricians then did second fixing and the carpenter carried out his final second fixing.

The customer was delighted with the space created and with the quality of the works.
