Loft conversions are one of the most cost effective and simple means of making the very best use of the loft space available to you within your home. We can extend this to include another floor even, if this is available within planning law.
Many of us are looking for a little extra space for an extra bedroom, a nursery, an office to enable someone to work from home in peace and quiet or simply to spoil yourself with a gym or cinema room. The advantage of a loft conversions are that there is minimal structural alteration required to the rest of the building, and much of the work can be done with the client in residence.
Planning permission is required where you extend or alter the roof space and it exceeds specified limits and conditions, this can be dealt with by our team.

Gaining access to the loft conversion is a consideration to be given much thought as with all of the process. It is important to consider fire regulations as well as building control for your own safety and peace of mind. We are experienced with this and can hold your hand all the way through.
