What is a Loft Conversion?

A Loft Conversion, you could say, is the “ultimate home renovation.” It maximizes the space in your property by converting unused attic space into a fully functional room, a great addition to your home. It can be as practical as adding a guest bedroom or home office or you can get creative. You can transform your loft into a cool play area for your kids; this is perfect for homeowners with growing families. It can even be a glam room or a wardrobe! Great for those looking for more closet space.

The whole process is safe and handled by our professionals. To give you a brief overview, here are the steps to a Loft Conversion:

1.) Securing Permits – For homes that have more complex builds, like maisonettes or homes with existing verandas, you may need to secure a planning permit from your local authority. Specific height measurements as well need to be met. Common examples we encounter are attic spaces with a minimum 2.2-meter height requirement, Terraced properties with a 40 cubic meter space requirement, and Semi-detached homes with a 50 cubic meter space requirement.

2.) Home Inspection – Your home will be surveyed in order to assess whether or not its structure can hold an additional building on your roof or carry more weight from additional structures that will be built for your new loft. This is essential so as not to go backward with the idea of wanting to upgrade and spruce up your home. Your roof structure will be more closely studied to also see which type of Loft Conversions will be suitable for your home, giving you more options as to how you want to maximize your space.

3.) Planning and Designing – Once your home is deemed suitable for the project, you will coordinate with an architect to discuss designs and the ideal structure of how you want your space to look like more or less. This is when you get more concrete details of how your vision will come to life – through design proposals and rough sketches that will showcase your soon-to-be new and functional loft. When discussing with your architect, you will also more or less get a rough estimate of all the expenses you will have for your ideal Loft Conversion.

4.) Construction – This is when you will slowly see your dream space come to life. Partitions will be removed and replaced, structural beams will be added, as well as insulation and proper ventilation. While your dream loft is being constructed, other technicalities will be done during this phase as well. Aside from the aforementioned, ensuring that your loft is an extension of your home, a door, and a stairwell will be added in the latter part of the build. It will allow the space to be accessible and seamlessly tie into your home rather than being a new completely separate area.

5.) Finishing Touches – Once your loft is complete, it will be handed over to you. You can decorate your loft as your heart desires. Here, you can showcase your style and taste with the furniture and décor you will add to your loft.

Types of Loft Conversions

Being industry leaders, we can handle a variety of Swanscombe loft conversions thanks to our years of experience and expertise. We can give you ample space through our Dormer Loft Conversion. It adds a boxed structure on the top of your home, allowing you additional room for space. Similar to the Dormer, the L Shaped Loft Conversion also adds not one, but two structures on your roof to join into an L Shape. Giving you double, or more, the space that you’d expect. The Mansard Loft Conversion is perfect if you’re looking into fully maximizing not only your space but your home’s overall aesthetic and proportions. A Hip to Gable Loft Conversion is also a service we provide, a suitable option for homeowners with Semi-Detached and Terraced properties. For those looking for a simple yet practical fix, the Velux Loft Conversion brightens up and elevates your space by converting your unused attic into a bespoke space.


You can easily complete the project if you have the skills in doing the job. Be wary though as a loft conversion isn’t a simple DIY project that you can quickly complete in one night. This type of home upgrade requires a lot of planning and thinking to make it a reality that’s why many homeowners just opt to hire professionals. 


In order to obtain building regulations approval, the inclusion of a staircase in the construction plan is necessary. Our experts in the field can build a staircase that will lead up to your new loft following all the standard protocols such as the headroom at the center of the flight measures at least 1.9 meters while the headroom at the edges measures 1.8 meters, the pitch isn’t more than 42 degrees, and the width of the stairs won’t be less than 600 mm. We will make sure that all of these are carefully incorporated once we devise the building plan for your loft so we can easily secure the building regulations certificate.


To ensure your safety and your family, all doors in your loft must be replaced with fire doors. This is also vital in securing a building regulations approval since changing all doors into fire-resisting ones is included in the fire safety protocols that must be followed in the building plan. Fire doors are classified by how long they can withstand fire, 30 minutes (FD30) or 60 minutes (FD60). Rest assured that this type of door will be in place in your new loft once you decide to work with the team that we have at Loft Conversions Company.


The average cost of a Loft Conversion in Swanscombe is between £40,000 to £90,000. (in 2022) The most common type of Loft Conversion is the dormer as it adds the most space and best light to your property. 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. If you want to know the exact cost of your Loft Conversion in Swanscombe, you will need to book a site survey or send us your drawings and our loft specialist will review them and get back to you with a quotation.
