The positives of a Oxford loft conversion
- Extending the home on the ground floor can cause much more disruption than a loft conversion, due to the need of a completely new build. Simply extending the loft space your Oxford property already has means that the building work will cause less disruption for your home. The work will be underway on the top floor of your property, meaning you can go about your daily business without too much disturbance.
- Loft conversions are the fastest, cleanest and safest way to extend your home. Depending on the size of your project, the timeframe for completion of your loft conversion is likely to be less than you expect. As they cause less disruption than a ground floor extension, you will also be less likely to be impacted by the work.
- If Oxford homeowners don’t want to change the footprint of their home, they can often feel limited and crave more living space. Luckily, converting your loft doesn’t require changing the footprint, meaning you can extend your living space hassle-free. This is simple and effective, and you can benefit from the unique and bespoke service from Touchstone Lofts.
- A loft conversion can transform the top floor of your home, allowing natural light in and utilising space that would otherwise be used for dusty storage boxes. With this new space, you can create whatever you need; a new bedroom with an en suite, a playroom for children or a study. For a quality builder in Oxford, come to Touchstone Lofts and we’ll help you create magic in your home.
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.
What’s possible with your loft conversion?
These are some of the build possibilities you might want to consider for your Oxford loft conversion:
