Transform your home with a stunning loft conversion
We’ll find a way, even when space is in short supply
Having worked within a range of different properties, from houses and maisonettes through to premises above shops and even barn conversions, we’re confident that we can convert any roof space into additional living space. Our experience means that we’re particularly adept at converting low pitch roofs that other companies would struggle to fit a building regulations compliant living space within. The usual strategies for these conversions, raising the ridge height of the roof or lowering the floor, are extremely disruptive and may not even be feasible. Instead, we’ve developed alternate approaches using the skills that we’ve built up after spending more than 30 years’ experience in the industry.
If the ridge height of your roof is only 2m and you’d like to see what the options are for your low pitch roof, arrange your free quote and design consultation by calling 0800 881 8194.

Supporting you through the planning process
We can provide a helping hand if you need to apply for planning permission. Our team has completed thousands of successful planning permission applications in the past, resulting in a 98% planning success rate. During your free quote and design consultation we’ll discuss your permitted development rights and we’ll establish whether your proposed loft conversion will require planning permission. Then, if you do need to submit an application, we’ll offer our expertise so that you’re spared the time and stress of a drawn-out process. Where necessary, we can also help you to obtain a Party Wall Agreement with your neighbours.
Protecting the appearance of your home
Altering the appearance of your home with a loft conversion can seem like a risk, that’s why we make sure that the design of your loft conversion is a focus from the very start. As experienced loft conversion designers, we understand how important it is to pay close attention to the details; your finished loft conversion will take into account elements such as the placement of your windows, the position of the dormer in your roof, and the type and colour of the existing tiles, to create a result that enhances the look of your home. Our bespoke loft conversions are designed to blend into the rest of your property and to reflect the character of the surrounding properties on your street.
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 loft conversion:
What can be achieved with a dormer loft conversion
Case study Loft conversion in Ealing
Mount Park Road, W5
The opportunity to create more space
Already a three-storey property, there was scope to add a dormer and extend in the eaves making a fabulous master suite bedroom.
How we can achieve a conversion like this for your home
The client had a large property and wanted to extend further to create more space. There was scope to add a pitched roof dormer and extend into the eaves.
We had been recommended by a friend of the client whose loft we had recently converted.
Planning permission was required so our architect prepared a scheme for the client to approve and planning was obtained eight weeks later.
Stairs were already in place but the client was unhappy with the stair furniture plus they were old and worn and required a facelift.
We discussed various spindle and handrail designs resulting in all being replaced from the ground floor to the loft with better quality, sturdier furniture. The design was period, and our stair partners reproduced a new period style spindle that really brought the stairs alive. We also replaced many treads and repaired the squeaks on the existing stairs.
The overall loft conversion design was modern with a period feel.
Large Velux windows flooded light into the bedroom and stairs, and the dormer had large wooden windows fitted - custom-made from our partner window company.
The en-suite included a bath with shower with simple rippled off white tiles.
We also fitted a wooden floor for the loft and took care of all the decoration.
