Transform your home with a stunning loft conversion
Why should you convert your loft?
Maximise your space
Enhance your home without increasing your footprint. By using the existing space in your home, you can expand the size of your living area without losing that valuable garden space. With our assistance and careful planning, we will work with you to create sleek storage spaces or perhaps add an extra bathroom, a games room or a bedroom to your property.
Add value to your home
Whether you are considering a relocation in the near future, or planning to stay in your home for the long run, converting your loft space can increase the value of your home by approximately 30%, no matter when you decide to sell, enabling you to invest in the future of your family and home life. As well as the financial benefit, a loft conversion will also add that all important curb appeal and become a selling point for potential buyers, with the extra living space and no loss of outdoor space.
When looking at your options of a larger living space, costs will always play a big part in your decision. With a loft conversion, you will have no need to worry about the wasted costs of moving to a new area. With only a small level of noise, dust and disruption in your home, you are also able to continue living in the property while the work is being carried out, so there’s no need to rent elsewhere to allow any space or time for us to complete the job.
Stick with what’s familiar
By extending into the loft, you are able to create the new living space you are looking for while staying in the area that you love. By not having to relocate and search for new jobs or schools for the family, the process of expanding the size of your home will be an easier transition for everyone. And, by adding a much-loved Juliet balcony to your loft space, you will be able to enjoy the spectacularly green views of Sevenoaks as you have never seen them before, all from the comfort of your own home.
Get it right first time
It’s easy to choose the wrong design for your loft conversion, with steep staircases, awkward corridors and boxy rooflines. We pride ourselves in understanding the best way to design in sympathy with your home, complimenting the existing architecture and making your loft conversion function as well as it looks.
Worried about your low pitch roof? We have the answer
It is often the case that some homeowners find it impossible to comply with the building regulations set by their local council without causing major disruption to their home. We have a 98% success rate in gaining permission and approval for loft conversions without needing to change the dimensions of any other rooms in the house to accommodate the new space. On previous jobs, our level of knowledge has enabled us to create a living space in the loft where the ridge height of the roof was just 2m.
To see what we can do for your low pitch roof, arrange your free quote and design consultation by calling 0800 881 8194 or emailing [email protected]. Each consultation is carried out by an experienced surveyor and includes a free, no obligation design that would normally be valued at £500.

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.
