Types of loft conversions for Wokingham homes
These are the various types of loft conversion we can design and build:
Reasons to upgrade your loft
More living space
Loft conversions offer endless possibilities. Whether you’re looking to add a game room, an office, or an extra bathroom, Touchstone Lofts can build it for you.
Cost and time savings
Some homeowners require more rooms for a growing family, but wish to avoid the cost and stress of moving to a new place. A loft conversion gives you that extra space quickly, at a fraction of the cost.
Greater resale value
A loft conversion can add up to 30% to the value of your home. Considering the cost-effectiveness of a conversion, this return is fast and substantial if you’re looking to sell in the near future.
Planning permission and permitted developments in Wokingham
Our hands-on team will oversee the entire process including obtaining permission from the relevant building authorities.
A surveyor will visit your home and verify the requirements applicable to your location and type of property. Most detached, semi-detached or terraced properties may enjoy permitted development regulations while flats and properties in conservation areas are subject to relevant planning permits.
Many homeowners put off loft conversion projects for fear of being denied planning permission. With 98% of our plans approved the first time, we guarantee peace of mind and a stress-free experience no matter your needs.
