Following your initial inquiry, our consultant will visit you and quickly determine the feasibility and potential of your loft. We will discuss your specific requirements and decide what is the most suitable conversion for your property. We will then send you a detailed specification and fixed price quotation that is valid for acceptance for eight weeks.
Once you have accepted our quote, our architects will draw up plans. We will submit these to your local authority for approval if necessary and once planning has been approved we will prepare and submit Building and Fire Regulation plans. These are required even if planning consent is not needed. Work will start approximately one month after all approval has been given.

The experience was a very positive one from the outset. The first impression I got from the first meeting with Dave was of confidence and thoroughness. I then received a well presented quote with a fair and accurate price and description of my requirements.
The day Daniel and his team started I had full confidence once again, they were clean, tidy, and courteous. Nothing was a problem and they worked solidly though the four weeks.

Please thank everyone in your team who helped with our amazing loft conversion. It is better than we imagined and we love it. Paul and his apprentice worked so hard on the build and kept mess to a minimum. The finishings like the plastering and the carpentry were done to an excellent standard.
