Frequently Asked Questions
There's no easy answer to that as every conversion is unique. After one simple site visit (in the evening if that's more convenient for you) we will be able to tell you exactly what yours will cost, together with a scale floor plan. What we give you is a fixed price quotation, not a vague statement. It's free of charge and there's no commitment.
Yes, provided the underside of your roof apex, measured from the floor of your loft, is at least 7' (2.1 metres).
They're called trussed roofs, which require specialist structural knowledge to convert (that's why some companies won't attempt them). In fact, we specialise in trussed roofs and over the years have converted many hundreds of them!
Yes, a fully comprehensive guarantee. What's more, you can choose to have it underwritten by an independent insurance policy administered by the Federation of Master builders.
The management team, who perform regular site visits. They have a personal interest in maintaining the highest quality standards have practical 'hands on' experience in all aspects of building loft conversions.
All conversions have to comply with building regulations but you may also require planning permission. But don't worry, we take care of all that. Because we have over 30 years experience and because we specialise exclusively in loft conversions, we really do know the process inside out. We will prepare and submit the drawings complete with structural calculations and liaise with the local authority on your behalf.
We do everything from design to completion. Once we have completed your conversion, you are ready to decorate and add the carpets, the finishing touch
That depends on whether you need planning permission and how quickly your local authority takes to grant it. However, construction for a typical conversion is normally complete within 3 - 6 weeks. So, you could be in your new bedroom, office, study or playroom in just a few months from now.
We keep it to an absolute minimum. We use external scaffolding, with materials taken in through the roof, rather than through your property. Every day we leave your home clean and tidy. There's no need to move out and life goes on with the minimum of disruption.
A brief look around our website will answer that. And so will talking to our customers. We're big enough and have been around long enough to trust - but as a family business we're still small enough to care. We specialise exclusively in loft conversions, and have for many years been members of the Federation of Master builders and the Guild of Master Craftsmen. And because we're so experienced, when you first discuss your requirements with us, we can make all kind of useful suggestions - to keep down costs or to add that extra touch of luxury. You could sum it all up as 'peace of mind'.
