Loft Conversions

Loft Conversions

You might think that a loft conversion is a lengthy process, but in reality you may be surprised at how quickly it can be completed to a high standard.

Why have a loft conversion?

One of the main advantages is the extra space that a conversion will create. It will usually give you at least one extra bedroom, plus the possibility of an extra bathroom, both ideal for those with growing families.

A conversion may also add value to your property. According to estate agents, a fourth bedroom is a highly-prized commodity for families looking to buy a house.

While a professional job which maintains the consistency of the existing style of the house can be valuable, a poorly-executed bodge job can actually knock money off the value.

So choose Charles Henderson to avoid a conversion calamity. We talk over exactly what you want doing, and ensuring you get a written, itemised quotations.

How long will the work take?

“The longest would probably be about six to eight weeks – that would be for a job with two rooms, for example.”

In most cases, a more straightforward job will take around six weeks from start to finish.

Planning permission issues

In general, most loft conversions do not need planning permission. However, there are some exceptions. For example, a listed building or property in a conservation area may have to apply for permission.

Also permission may be necessary if any part of the conversion will be higher than the existing roof, or if the position of any of the windows could invade a neighbour’s privacy.
