The positives of a Hillingdon loft conversion
- Space within West London is tight and even more so in Hillingdon, with more and more space being taken up by housing development and growth. This can lead to tightly packed properties with little or no space to extend on the ground floor. Utilising unused loft space is often the smart and simple way to add valuable and much needed additional space to your home, without increasing the property’s footprint.
- Undertaking a loft conversion is typically less invasive than building a ground floor extension. With no footings, less brickwork and generally less mess, this means less mess and disruption to you and your family, allowing daily life to resume as normal.
- Our designers are experienced in using the height of your home to best use and finding ways to introduce more natural light, better views and a sense of privacy to your loft conversion.
- Your underutilised loft or attic could be transformed into a beautiful, private, dedicated sanctuary, away from the hustle and bustle of life downstairs.

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:
