Types of loft conversions for Newbury homes
These are the various types of loft conversion we can design and build:
How your home can benefit from a loft conversion
More practical space
Converting unused attic space is one of the easiest ways to extend your living space. Whether you need the extra space for an office, a new bedroom, or a playroom for the kids, building upwards helps you achieve your interior goals quickly.
Instead of splurging on a new home, you can put significantly less money and time towards a loft conversion while getting the extra space you need.
Improved resale value
Potential home buyers are always on the lookout for features that make the property worth investing in. A loft conversion can give you a competitive edge and increase your home’s resale value by 20%.
Planning permission and permitted developments in Newbury
Loft conversions might require certain permits from local government bodies. Detached, semi-detached or terraced properties may benefit from permitted development regulations while flats and properties in conservation areas require relevant planning permits.
Our team will walk you through the laws governing your loft project and handle the bulk of the paperwork on your behalf. We have years of experience working with councils throughout England. With 98% of our plans approved the first time, you can rest assured that your project meets every aspect of approval.

How long does a loft conversion take?
Building work can take up to 12 weeks to complete depending on the size, type, and complexity of the project.
Will I need to move out during the project?
No – our goal is to deliver the highest quality work with the least disruption to you and your neighbours. We work from the scaffolding and can schedule our building hours at your convenience. Our team follows complete safety precautions from start to finish, keeping your property safe and damage-free.
What is a party wall agreement (PWA) and is it a requirement for a loft conversion?
A PWA is required for semi-detached or terraced properties where building works occur within or close to the neighbour’s boundary. Our surveyor can advise accordingly.

A head height of 2m is usually followed. Our surveyor will have to verify if your property meets the standard height requirement.

It depends on your location and type of property. If you have a detached, semi-detached, or terraced property, you may take advantage of permitted development regulations. For flats and properties in conservation areas, you might have to obtain necessary planning permits before beginning any work.
