Why you need a loft conversion
More living space
A loft conversion is an effective way to make more from your living space without sacrificing part of your outdoor space. We can turn your loft into an instant study, gym, home theatre, or game room for the kids.
Lower moving expenses
With a loft conversion, you can avoid the trouble and costs of moving into a bigger place when your family or home business is growing.
Increased property value
A well-designed loft can bring a healthy increase to your home’s value and attract more buyers in the future.

Our team will help you secure the necessary planning permission for your project.
- First, we’ll confirm if you have permitted development rights. If not, you’ll need planning consent to start the conversion.
- We’ll walk you through the process of applying for planning consent.
- If necessary, we’ll prepare the designs to be submitted to the local authority.
- We can also help you understand Party Wall Agreements should you need it.

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.
