Loft Conversion News

Converting your loft can be a cost-effective way of increasing living space within your home by creating an extra bedroom, study, playroom or bathroom.  If you are wondering if your loft is suitable, contact us and we will explain all the options available for creating the space you need.  It is also important to remember an extra room can add value to your home in a declining market.

In 2008 the government made changes to planning rules which makes expanding your home much easier.

Simply, a householder can build a loft conversion without planning permission providing:-

  • The cubic content of the extended roof does not exceed 40 cubic metres in the case of a terrace house or 50 cubic metres in any other case
  • Materials used are similar in appearance to the existing look
  • The home is not in a conservation area
  • The design of the loft meets planning regulations

The price to convert your loft will range from 15K to 50K depending on size and specification. Save yourself the inconvenience of moving to a new home.  Our loft conversions can be completed in as little as 6 weeks!  Call us today.
