At Loft Conversions Company, we believe that homes are a reflection of one's values and lifestyle. Our team always aims to create loft extensions that showcase this while adding value to your property. We believe in the value of investing in a Loft Conversion project for your home.
What we want for our clients is to have their home's dead space transformed into fully functioning and value-adding spaces. Therefore, we have included in our services different types of Loft Conversion packages to cater to your lifestyle and home.
The most common type is the Dormer Loft Conversion, in which the roof is structurally altered to provide you with the space you need. If you're on a tight budget, the Velux Loft Conversion allows you to enjoy Whistable's seaside views while also bringing in a cool fresh breeze by converting your existing attic and transforming it by adding ventilation and skylights.
Hip-to-gable loft conversions are the best option if you want a lot of space in your new loft because they transform your property's sloping hip and extend it outwards and upwards to create a gable side wall.
The L Shaped Loft Conversion is also a great option if you're looking to increase square footage extensively, as it adds two structures onto the roof of your home, giving you that extra space you need.
The Mansard Loft Conversion is the most costly among all as this essentially replaces your roof with a new structure with steeply sloping sides, over which a nearly flat roof will be installed. Whatever you envision for your space, Loft Conversions Company will ensure that your home is paired with the perfect type of Loft Conversion that will last you a lifetime.
Part of our system at Loft Conversions Company is including our clients every step of the way throughout the process. We'll collaborate with you to build a stunning and easily accessible loft that is the ideal addition to any home. Our professionals will thoroughly inspect the space and identify what needs to be repaired. All this will be done while keeping you updated with every examination in your home that we go through. The standard procedure begins with the removal of the plaster ceiling and the cutting out of the timber floor, which is then followed by installing floor and wall insulation for proper ventilation. These insulations also serve as a fire safety hazard to regulate the temperature in your home. Following that, the dormer will be built, and partition walls and ceilings, windows or skylights, and a door and stairwell will be placed to allow the loft to be a seamless extension of the home. Finally, the walls and ceilings will be plasterboarded, concluding the construction process. The space will then be ready for decoration. On average, these types of builds take 5-8 weeks but can last up to 10 weeks if the project calls for a more complex structure and design.

You can easily check if the area you want to convert is ideal for a loft conversion by measuring the available headroom. To have a loft conversion, the room must have at least 2.5 meters of vertical space measured from the floor joist up to the highest point in the area which is usually your roof ridge. Although not crucial, the current roof framing your house is also a decisive factor if a loft conversion is right for the room. Most houses built in the pre-1960s are easier to convert because they feature traditional roof rafters. If you’re facing trouble confirming these factors, you can consult with the team we have at Loft Conversions Company.
If you’ll choose to work with the team we have at Loft Conversions Company, rest assured that you have all the freedom to incorporate your ideas into your loft.
