Guide to Loft Conversion in Seven Sisters

A loft conversion can be an excellent addition to any home, providing both room and value. Furthermore, loft conversion prices are especially affordable when compared to the expense of a full-fledged house extension. Learn how to guarantee your loft conversion complies with legal and safety requirements. The most straightforward approach to ensure that your loft conversion is safe and legal is to ensure that it adheres to government Building Regulations, which cover:

STRUCTURE - the floor of your loft must be solid enough to support weight, as well as the walls and joists. If you are extending the roof, for example, with dormers, you must follow structural safety regulations.

INSULATION - At least 270mm of loft insulation is required to guarantee your building satisfies energy efficiency standards. Rigid insulation boards that can be trimmed to size and installed between joists are typically the best choice for loft conversions.

ELECTRICAL WORK -All electrical work in your loft conversion must be undertaken by a certified electrician who can work to British Standards 7671 and comply with Part P of the Building Regulations. To ensure the safety of any electrical work, you should get an Electrical Installation Certificate as well as a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate.

PLUMBING - If you intend to construct a bathroom in your loft conversion, you must ensure that the plumbing is built by an expert who will adhere to drainage and sanitation requirements.

STAIRCASES - A minimum of 2.3 meters of headroom is required at the top of the steps. Stairs must also be strong and give a sufficient method of escape in the event of a fire; most retractable stairs and loft ladders are not permitted.

WINDOWS- must be glazed and fulfill thermal efficiency requirements. The easiest approach to ensure this is to choose a window installer who can self-certify that their work complies with building codes and issue a certificate; members of FENSA and CERTASS may accomplish this.

HEATING - Installing electric heaters in your loft conversion is a cost-effective option to extend a gas central heating system to the loft. If your present boiler is already underutilized, you may want to consider installing a new combi boiler in the loft; in either case, you should employ a skilled Gas Safe licensed engineer or electrician to install your heating safely.


Fire doors are required for loft conversions. Building regulations require that when converting an existing roof area into a room or rooms, escape facilities be addressed. This frequently implies that more fire protection will be required in existing areas of the house. A conventional loft conversion to a two-story residence, for example, may necessitate the installation of new fire-resistant doors and, in some cases, barriers to safeguard the stairwell. Because it is too unsafe to rely on an escape route via windows from levels above the first-floor level, a secure passage from the loft to the exterior of the building is required. To assist prevent fire spread, any doors leading to an escape route must be converted to fire doors. Finally, if a fire breaks out any place in the house, persons in the loft conversion must have access to a safe and secure evacuation.


The average cost of a Loft Conversion in Seven Sisters is between £40,000 to £90,000.

A loft conversion will not only give you extra space but also enhance your living space on your property. A loft conversion price depends on many factors such as type of the conversion, type of the roof you have, type of the lighting you want in the loft, the type of windows required, the size of the project, fixtures and fittings, nature of the exterior, client's personal requirements and the site's location.
