Below are some of the questions we are frequently asked about loft conversions. Please contact us and we will be happy to discuss your requirements and answer any of your questions.

Can all lofts be converted? 2017-01-13T16:05:15+00:00

Most lofts can be converted providing they are a minimum height of 2.3 metres at their highest point to allow for headroom. Sometimes it is not practical if the loft is very small.

Can my loft be converted? 2017-01-13T16:04:57+00:00

Most people look up into their loft and think they wouldn’t be able to use it as a room because of the shape of the roof trusses. We can remove these and construct steel or timber trusses that run the length of the loft and provide structural support, giving you scope for an extra bedroom, a study, bathroom, playroom, dressing room or en-suite.

Can the quality of the work be guaranteed? 2017-01-13T16:04:44+00:00

Yes all our work is covered by a 5-year guarantee.

Are you insured to carry out work on my premises? 2017-01-13T16:04:23+00:00

Yes, both the company and tradesmen have public liability insurance to cover us for all works undertaken.

What are your payment terms? 2017-02-14T14:55:46+00:00

We offer a no staged payment option throughout your loft conversion, where all you pay to get started is just a small deposit of £2000 and then no further payments until satisfactory completion.

How long will the work take? 2017-01-13T16:03:43+00:00

This depends on the size of the conversion and the number of rooms involved, but as a guide it normally takes 3-6 weeks.

When can you start my loft conversion? 2017-01-13T16:03:29+00:00

We would normally expect to start within one month of permissions being obtained by local authorities. This usually takes between 6-8 weeks.

Will I have to move out while the work is being done? 2017-01-13T16:03:05+00:00

No, you won’t have to move out. We’re careful to keep disruption to a minimum. You’ll be without power for short periods while work is being done on the electrics, but where plumbing work is involved we’ll never leave you without water overnight. While work is ongoing, we use dust sheets to protect your home and clear up daily, then when the job’s complete we remove all rubbish from the site. We make every effort to take care of your home at all times.

Will you arrange installation of plumbing and electrics? 2017-01-13T16:02:47+00:00

Yes, this is normally included in our total price unless we agree something different. We only use plumbers who are Corgi registered and our electricians are NIC certificated and Part “P” competent.

How will you dispose of the rubble and waste? 2017-01-13T16:02:32+00:00

We will use a skip, the cost of which is included in your quote.

What will happen to my existing tanks in the loft? 2017-01-13T16:02:17+00:00

Our plumbers will reposition water tanks into the eaves or new heating systems can be installed if required.

What about planning permission? 2017-01-13T16:02:00+00:00

Planning permission is only required if you wish to put a dormer window on the front of your house and it is within 26 metres of the road, or if the house has been substantially extended in the past. We will deal with all aspects of the planning application along with our architects. Planning permission costs are included in the quote.

Will we need to arrange Building Regulations approval? If so, what are the costs involved? 2017-01-13T16:01:40+00:00

We will deal with the building controls with your local council. The cost is included in your quote.

Do all doors in the house have to be changed to fire doors? 2017-01-13T16:01:09+00:00

Fire doors are required to all habitable rooms leading from the loft to the front door to meet fire regulations.

Can we see one of your loft conversions before we decide to have one done? 2017-01-13T15:57:10+00:00

Yes, we can arrange for you to view one of our completed loft conversions.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for such a professional loft conversion job. Your team were always very considerate, helpful and co-operative in their approach to the project – many congratulations on a job well done! Please pass on my thanks to the team.

MR G MORGAN

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.

ANDREA, MILTON KEYNES

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.
