Transform your home with a stunning loft conversion
Reasons to convert your loft
Ensure you make the most of all the space your home can offer. Perhaps you’ve downsized and would love a little extra space? Or maybe you have a growing family? Lofts can be turned into an integral part of your home, offering more than a space to store boxes. Make your loft more valuable.
A higher value home.
Did you know that a loft conversion can increase the value of your property? It’s the perfect long-term project, giving you more space now while you also consider the future. You could increase the value of your home by around 20%, just by converting the loft space.
Value for money.
It’s expensive to move house and there are many fees you have to pay – stamp duty can be prohibitive in some areas of Wandsworth. A loft conversion can help you improve your way of life without needing to move. Stay in the area you love, whilst giving yourself some more space to live.
No need to move.
You see, there are so many possibilities when you convert your loft space. It could be a bathroom, a home office, a cinema, a guest bedroom… or a better bedroom for you. It’s your home, after all! Take full advantage of the space and enjoy your property more.
Don’t let a low pitch roof put you off
A low pitch roof might be a problem for some loft conversion companies, but we have solutions. Our expertise has seen us convert roofs with an initial ridge height of just 2m! Your new loft conversion will be fully compliant with all relevant building regulations and we have options that don’t involve raising the ridge height or lowering the floor. A surveyor will carry out your initial consultation and will inform you of all available solutions for your loft.

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.
