Why our service is unrivalled
Knowledge of Lambeth
When working across Lambeth, we take time to study the local area, construction types, architecture and research into the common planning regulations. Having transformed over 1,000 homes through the area, we are also accustomed to working with a multitude of different sizes, shapes and height levels common to the variety of home styles seen across the borough. With this expertise in hand, we will enhance your home with a creative yet sympathetic design to allow the feel of your home to continue from ground floor level, to the new third storey, whilst also keeping in tone with the architecture around the outside of your home.
Our conversion process is unrivalled. Unlike many, we are one-stop, resulting in all work, from design to installation, being completed in house. Working this way allows us to oversee the entire process, ensure that no detail is missed out and that each part of the job is completed to the highest standard. Throughout the conversion, you will be walked through the build to keep you up to date with the progress, allowing you to see what is happening in real time and make any last minute alterations if you have any new additions.
The level of confidence we have in our materials and conversions is higher than ever, which is why we offer a 10-year guarantee on each loft conversion we complete.
Why you should convert your Lambeth loft?
The additional value
Maximise the space within your home without increasing the size of your property’s footprint. The ability to gain one, two or even three extra rooms is all yours. By utilising the wasted space on at top of your home, you are able to bring your dreams of a larger home to life. Our careful and sympathetic planning can give you that extra bedroom, bathroom, games room or studio, adding value to your home as well as your lifestyle. By filling each possible inch of your home and utilising it as functional living space without the loss of valuable garden or driveway space, the value of your home can increase by around 30%.
Being in such an up and coming location, there is no doubt that you will want to remain living in the heart of Lambeth. If you are looking at moving house, it is unlikely that you will gain the additional living space that you are after without increasing your budget or moving location completely. You are able to extend into the room which already exists within your home, without those additional moving fee costs, giving you the liveable and practical space which you are looking for. You are also able to remain in the heart of your beloved Lambeth with great access into central London and all the hot spots it has to offer. By fitting a series of Velux windows or a Juliette balcony into your conversion, you will be able to take advantage of the great views that Brockwell Park or the streets of Brixton have to offer, whilst relaxing into the safety of your own peaceful hub and away from the hustle and bustle below.
Stick with what you know
By remaining in the same area of Lambeth, the same road and the same home, you are able to keep the neighbours, memories and traditions in your family’s day to day life. With no need to relocate, move the children to a new school, find new neighbours for the adults and kids to socialise with, or even a hunt for a new job with less travel, life is able to lose the potential added stresses of relocation. The extra storey of your property will bring a new lease of life to your home which you will be able to enjoy more without those unnecessary costs and stresses.
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:
