Transform your home with a stunning loft conversion
Why should you consider a loft conversion?
Good value for money
Completing a loft conversion can be significantly cheaper than building an extension. You can upgrade your property without having to pay an extortionate amount of money. It’s much cheaper than moving house too, especially in Kingston upon Thames where property can be very expensive.
More space to live
Most of our customers tell us that they want more space, or they have outgrown their current property. A loft conversion helps you add additional living space without the hard work. You’re simply making better use of space that is already there, ensuring your loft is used to its full potential.
Increase property value
A loft conversion could increase the value of your home by around 20%! There is so much potential in a loft conversion, and more people are looking for homes with converted loft spaces when they move, so that they don’t have to carry out the work themselves. A loft conversion is a great decision for the future.
Make your home more beautiful
You should see a loft conversion as a wonderful opportunity to make your home your own. The space under the rafters can be used in any way you wish, from a home cinema room, to a study, to a bedroom. The views from the top of the house will be great and the space will be versatile.

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.
