Loft Conversions

Increase your living space by utilising the unused roof space in your home. It’s one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to extend your home and add to its value in the process.

Loft conversions are a practical solution for many families who have outgrown their living space but don’t want to move. If you live in a terraced property, and don’t have the option to extend outwards but need more room, consider a loft conversion.

You can convert your loft into a beautiful master bedroom suite, a home cinema room, home office, guest bedroom or the perfect teenage retreat. Whatever your needs, a loft conversion could be the answer.

Why convert your loft?

Not everyone has the option to add additional space by adding a side or back extension. But most properties will have a roof space that can be converted easily enough. It’s a really cost effective way of adding valuable square footage to your home and adding value too. Done well, a loft conversion can add around 21% to the value of your home.

How much does a loft conversion cost?

Loft conversion costs will be determined by a variety of factors, including whether planning permission is needed and the type of roof you have, as well as the age of your property. Internal loft conversions, which convert the existing loft space, are the most popular and most cost effective. This is the cheapest type of loft conversion because the outer structure of the property doesn’t need to be altered. Internal loft conversions start at around £15,000. Other types of loft conversions include dormer loft conversions and roof off loft conversions, both of which will cost more due to the nature of work involved. A dormer loft conversion for a double bedroom and en-suite can cost between £20,000 to £40,000.

Does a loft conversion require planning permission?

You will need building regulations approval, but the majority of loft conversions don’t require planning permission – unless you’re raising the roof height or making changes to the roof structure. This is because they fall under what’s known as permitted development rights. Certain conditions have to be met though, including using like-for-like roofing materials – or as close to the original fittings as possible.

Also, if you live in a terraced house, new roofing cannot exceed an additional 40 cubic metres of roof space. For semi-detached and detached properties it’s 50 cubic metres.

However, if you are planning to alter the shape or height of the roof, live in a listed building or conservation area, and are thinking of converting your loft, you will need to get planning permission. If in doubt it’s always best to check beforehand.
