What will a loft conversion do for your Chiswick home?
Add living space
Can you afford to waste the space in your loft by leaving it for storage? A loft conversion will maximise the living space within your home, creating the space that your growing family needs and getting the most from your property.
Invest in your home
A loft conversion will add at least 20% to the value of your home, making it an excellent investment. You’ll benefit from the additional living space and, if you do decide to sell the property in the future, you’ll find that potential buyers appreciate the investment as well.
Avoid moving costs
Moving to a new property can be prohibitively expensive due to the additional costs that need covering. Making the best use of the space in your current property is a cost-effective alternative that ensures that your money goes towards your family, not stamp duty and legal fees.
Seize the opportunity
What will you do with your new living space? Converting your loft provides a fantastic opportunity to create a completely new living space within the home that you love. Whether you want to add a guest bedroom, an office, or a home cinema – grasp the opportunity with both hands.

A helping hand when it comes to planning
We are loft conversion specialists with more than 30 years’ experience in the industry. We’ll help you to understand your permitted development rights and, if your loft conversion requires planning permission, we can help you with this process. Our experience in this area means that we have a 98% planning success rate, saving you the time and stress of a drawn-out application process. We will also determine if you require a Party Wall Agreement with your neighbours before work can begin and, if necessary, we’ll advise you on this process.

Our displays cover a number of different areas, from design elements such as storage, bathrooms, and Velux windows, through to technical considerations such as types of insulation and fire safety measures.

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.

Case study Loft conversion in Chiswick
Hartington Road, W4
The opportunity to create more space
A very large loft space existed over the clients’ first floor maisonette on Hartington Road, Chiswick. Arranging access into the loft space was the challenge. Planning permission was also required along with the required permission from the housing committee who ran the estate.
How we can achieve a conversion like this for your home
After being awarded the contract our architect prepared layouts for the client who approved them, and we sent the drawings into Hounslow planning for approval.
The structural engineer prepared structural plans.
Once we had planning permission, we erected the scaffold and worked from the outside.
The client was away in Italy for most of the conversion liaising with us via email. Steels were fitted and the floor structure and walls were strengthened.
Six Velux windows were fitted and the plumber and electrician carried out first fixing. We fitted Recticel, Ecotherm polyisocyanurate insulation with Rockwool insulation used in the floor and slopes.
Gyproc plasterboards were fitted.
A new boiler was fitted by Touchstone lofts.
After plastering, the second fixing was completed and we fitted a wooden floor to the loft and created lots of storage in the eaves.
The client was delighted and recommended us to many of the locals. We converted a further three maisonettes in the local area.
