Types of loft conversions for Dulwich homes
These are the various types of loft conversion we can design and build:
Pros of a loft conversion
Extra living space
Space is always a challenge for growing families or those looking to accommodate older family members. Our team can turn dead space into a brand-new bedroom, playroom or study depending on your preferences.
Save time and money
A loft conversion requires less time, labour, and square footage to complete than traditional home extensions. It also offers a more practical alternative to shopping for a larger home.
Higher resale value
Converting unused attic space into a bedroom or bathroom can add anywhere between 20% to 30% to a property’s value.
Planning permission and permitted developments in Dulwich
Before we start doing any work, we need to confirm if your loft space is suitable for a conversion.
A surveyor will assess your home and identify the necessary requirements for your location and type of property. Permitted development regulations apply to most detached, semi-detached or terraced properties, which means you don’t need to obtain additional permission. For flats and properties in conservation areas, planning permission is required.
Many homeowners are reluctant to pursue loft conversion projects for fear of being denied planning permission. At Touchstone Lofts, 98% of our plans are approved the very first time. We know building regulations inside out and offer reliable advice no matter your situation.
Transform your Dulwich home with a stunning loft conversion
What do you need to know about a loft conversion for your Dulwich home?
What type of loft is right for your home?
Do you have a hip to gable roof, a low pitch eave or have a reduced head height loft? Do you need a dormer conversion, a Velux solution or a flat roof extension? Whatever your concerns or worries, let us answer them with a bespoke design solution that considers all of the technical requirements suited specifically to your conversion.
Is planning permission difficult to process?
Are you confused by planning approval, party wall agreements, building control or fire regulations? Our expert team understand exactly what is and isn’t required for your loft conversion and will walk you through each process step by step.
How long will the whole process take?
Whilst some loft conversions can be completed within weeks, we have delivered some complex conversions that have taken many months of planning, design, and construction.
