Planning Or Certificates Always Obtained
Unlike many other companies, we make sure you have the relevant certificates before any work commences. Most loft conversions fall under permitted development and require no planning permission as such. But if you wish to sell your property in the future you will be asked for a Lawful Development Certificate (LDC). This document is proof that your loft conversion was built lawfully. A Lawful Development Certificate (LDC) is not mandatory, which is why many builders do not worry about getting these in place. However it demonstrates that any and all work being built on the property are within its lawful boundaries. These certificates generally take 6-8 weeks to arrive once the application has been submitted.
Full plans and structural calculations will also be submitted to the necessary Building Control authority to approve before any works commence. During the project a series of inspections are undertaken to ensure that the work sufficiently meets Building Regulation Approval, once satisfied they will send a completion certificate direct to you.

Your consultation is free, an ideal opportunity for you to see how much space you can gain without having to commit to a deposit.
Free Floor Plans
We understand that it can be difficult to picture what your newly converted space would be like and what you could gain. Where would your stairs go, whether you would have enough space for an ensuite and wardrobes?
On initial consultation at your property we do a 1st floor & loft survey, giving us all the dimensions needed to give you a proposed loft floor plan. This is then provided with your free no obligation quotation.
We promise is to reach completion in the shortest time possible. We complete most conversions in 4-5 weeks, including the more involved L shaped or trussed roof conversions and we vary rarely have any conversion go on longer then 6 weeks. Unlike some companies, we never juggle jobs and promise that there will be workmen on site everyday.
Truss Roof Conversion Specialist
There is a misconception that trussed roofs can’t be converted. It’s important to find a conversion specialist that has experience in these types of conversions, as they are more difficult to convert than traditional cut and pitch roofs. We have a lot of experience in these and therefore don’t charge a premium for them unlike many other companies.
No Bulk Heads
Most loft conversions require a steel ridge beam, and most companies will install this under your existing ridge and box around it leaving that ugly bulk head. We make sure you’re not left with any unattractive bulk heads.
Splayed Velux Window Reveals
We always angle the reveals around your Velux windows rather than making them square. This allows much more light into your new loft room and is a more attractive finish.
