What services are included during the loft conversion project?
We provide everything from interior design to finished result. All our estimates are customised to suit our customer’s preferences and budgets. We have a team of skilled interior designers ,Bespoke joiners for all your storage solutions, decorators & bathroom tilers as well as carpet/flooring suppliers, who could provide you with a quote once the build is complete.
Is the price fixed?
Sure, the price is fixed. Once our team has agreed on the scope of the work we provide you with a fixed quote. The cost may be affected if we discover an unexpected problem once the job has started.  If this should occur, we will re-quote in advance of doing any extra works.
What about planning considerations?
We will take care of any regulations and planning issues that need to be addressed. We’ll let you know if you need to get a party-wall agreement and whether or not your project is an allowed development or if you’ll need to get planning permission. Our experienced and reputable architects will conduct further research and adhere to the council’s guidelines.
What is a party wall agreement?
An adjoining wall between two properties is a party wall. A party wall agreement is necessary before any work is done on your property, and this agreement must be reached between you and the other party. This protects both you and the other neighbour. Obviously you will only need a party wall agreement if you share an adjoining wall with another property.
What else do we need to consider?
If you have a party wall this is especially important but we recommend you discuss and planned building works with your neighbours to ensure a good relationship and minimise any potential problems whilst work is underway.

What other loft conversion work have you done locally?
Based on our gallery and case studies, you can see examples of our prior work and read loft conversion testimonials and reviews from prior clients.
How much disturbance will there be during the build process?
We aim to do all we can so as not to inconvenience you while you convert your existing loft into a bedroom. Some customers tell us that they did not know we were in the attic! We will fit a false ceiling in your existing hallway, erect scaffolding and gain access to your loft from the outside. We do all the work overhead, so your loft stays clean throughout. We won’t break through the ceiling until we are ready to install the staircase. What’s more, working from the outside prevents builders from passing through your home.
Is your loft conversion and building work guaranteed?
The loft conversion work and structure is guaranteed for 10 years which is insurance backed.
