    Following are the most asked questions about our loft conversion services.

    How much will loft conversion cost

    On average, loft conversions usually cost between 30K-50K GBP but it largely depends on the type of property, type of loft conversion, and the work required. The actual quote will be provided once you get in touch with us and our surveyor examines your property.

    What are the extra costs for the loft conversion project

    The extra costs that you will need to account for are as follows:

    • Building Control Fee (paid directly by the client to Building Control Company)
    • Planning Fee (If planning permission is required)
    • Party Wall Surveyor Fees (If your neighbour decides to appoint one)
    • Certificate of Lawfulness fee (If you decide to apply for one)

    How long will it take to complete a loft conversion project

    The duration of the project will depend on the type of loft conversion, property and extensions. On average, the loft conversion project is completed within 6 to 12 weeks.

    How much time will it take us to draw up the plans for your project

    After the signing of the contract, the planning process will take approximately 4 to 5 weeks given that the client (being you) approves the plans. It should be noted that the planning process may be completed in as little as two weeks if the client is in a hurry. The timescale of 4 weeks is estimated so that we can deliver the best possible service to our clients and make sure that they are completely satisfied with our proposed plans for their property.

    How much time will it take to get the plans approved

    That will largely depend on the client. If the client is happy with our proposed plans and doesn’t require many revisions, then this process would take around 8 weeks. This process may take longer if the client asks for further revisions.

    How soon can we start work on your house

    We can start the work on your property in 2 to 4 weeks. This timeframe is given under the assumption that you have all the paperwork in place along with all the plans, designs, and party wall notices. If that is not the case, then you will need at least 2 to 3 months to get all the paperwork in order.

    Will you require “planning permission” from authorities for a loft conversion

    Not always. If your property meets the criteria set out in legislation for permitted development, then you won’t need to acquire the planning permission from the authorities.

    What are the different types of loft conversions we offer

    We offer several types of loft conversions which include:

    • Dormer Loft Conversion
    • Hip to Gable Loft Conversion

    • L-section Mansard Loft Conversion
    • L-section Rear Dormer Loft Conversion
    • Hip to Gable Rear Dormer Loft Conversion

    How much disturbance is expected during the project?

    The disturbance is kept to a minimum because we usually work in the loft space and heavy work is carried out outside with scaffolding; however, a significant disturbance will be expected if we need to lower your ceilings.

    What guarantees do we offer? What insurances do we have in place

    We offer 2 years guarantee on the work done by us. Moreover, we have numerous insurance policies in place and we abide by all the rules and regulations of the authorities.
