Specialist loft conversion company in Beaconsfield, Touchstone Lofts
Hip To Gable Conversion
Hip to Gable conversions are popular among Beaconsfield homeowners with semi-detached or detached properties, end of terraces, and bungalows. The existing sloping roof is turned into a flat gable to increase available space. Depending on various factors, a hip to gable extension may or may not require planning permission. We can help you with this and apply on your behalf.
Dormer loft conversions are the most common type requested by Beaconsfield residents. With a dormer conversion we extend the existing roof vertically to create extra floor space and headroom. To achieve this, it is important that at least half of the current floor space has a ceiling height of at least two metres or higher. Dormers usually do not require planning permission.
A Velux, or roof light loft conversion in Beaconsfield is the most simple and economical type available. With a Velux, the roof remains unchanged, other than the installation of attractive flush Velux windows to give plenty of natural light. Typically, a Velux attic conversion does not need planning permission as the roof structure remains unchanged. This is the perfect solution if you want minimal outlay and disruption.
Beaconsfield is a quaint market town and in the South Bucks district of Buckinghamshire. It has the extremely privileged location at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
There are many attractions for visitors to Beaconsfield, including the Royal Standard pub. This old inn is believed to be the oldest Free House in England, visited by King Charles I during the civil war of the mid-17th century.
Another popular destination is the Bekonscot Model Village and Railway, the world’s oldest model village, which opened its doors in 1929. The huge model railway is situated in 1.5 acres of beautifully kept gardens and the finely detailed miniature buildings are a great way to enter a time warp and reminisce how England used to be in the 1930s.
Beaconsfield is a much-desired town for commuters to the capital as it is just 26 miles from London via the A40, and the journey takes half an hour by train to Marylebone station.
Four towns with excellent shopping facilities and restaurants are located within a five-mile radius: High Wycombe, Amersham, Gerrards Cross and Slough.
Beaconsfield has an interesting range of housing stock, which includes Georgian, neo-Georgian and Tudor revival architecture, situated in the area known as the Old Town.
On the outskirts, you will find many large houses set in their own grounds. Due to the fabulous location of Beaconsfield, and very attractive scenery, property prices in the town are continuously rising. Beaconsfield property is not cheap; the average detached home sells for £1,346,724.
If you live in Beaconsfield and find you need more living space, moving to larger premises is likely to be a costly manoeuvre. For this reason, and to avoid the inconvenience, many homeowners decide to stay put and to increase their living space by converting the idle attic space beneath the roof.

This means our exceptionally high standards are continuously maintained.
Our company has won national awards for our constructions and customer service.
We have in-house structural engineers who design loft conversions better than an outsider architect does, as they know how the conversion needs to function, as opposed to tackling the job only from a design point of view.
