Loft Conversion Frequently Asked Questions

A loft conversion can seem like a big undertaking, but simplifies the more you know what to expect. Below are some commonly asked questions clients have concerning their plans for a new loft conversion in Leyton, or throughout East London.

How much will my loft conversion cost?
On average, a loft conversion could cost you between £30 000 to £50 000. The cost will vary based on multiple factors. These include the type of loft conversion you want installed, the scale of the property, the type of house you own, any building regulations placed on your home, as well as any additional installations or fixtures you would like to include.

How long will my loft conversion take?
Your loft conversion will take between 6 to 8 weeks on average.

Do I always need planning permission?
Planning permission is not usually required. It is only compulsory when a loft conversion exceeds 50 cubic centimetres, and in a few other instances. We will advise you whether or not planning permission will be needed prior to construction.

Can I continue to live in the property during the loft conversion?
Yes. Our loft conversion team minimises noise, debris and disruption, enabling you to continue living in the house. Much of the work will be scaffolded up along the exterior of your home, to reduce invasiveness further.

Is the loft conversion work guaranteed?
Yes. You receive a 10 Year Warranty on your loft conversion to ensure a reliable investment.

Do I need drawing plans?
Our loft conversion specialists in Leyton and East London work with high-end architects who can provide the necessary drawing plans for your loft conversion. However, if you have your own architect whose work you would prefer to use, we will gladly accommodate this.

Do you offer plumbing, electrical and carpentry services?
We do offer these services and can incorporate them into a tailored quote.

Can you decorate the loft?
Yes. We can arrange to decorate your loft conversion to your bespoke requirements. Simply let us know what you have in mind.
