A guide on the necessary requirements for a loft conversion

When you are looking for the most cost effective way to increase the space you have in your home, we can help. Through the leading loft conversions Hull loves, you will have a new practical living space in no time. It will even add value to your property. Before work like ours can begin though, there are considerations that you need to take into account.

Is The Loft Suitable?

If your space is viable for a loft conversion, it is a great form of home improvement. Factors that affect this include the amount of available headroom. If you are lacking this space though, a roof lift can soon solve it. A member of our team will be able to do a survey to find out how we can transform your space into something amazing.

What Are You Looking For?

We complete various conversions, including:

– Velux
– Dormer Extensions
– Hipped Roof Dormers
– Roof Lift
– Above The Drive
– Garage Conversion

Additional work we do includes providing staircases, drawing services and also ensuring full compliance with the law. In addition we can assist you with the paperwork and regulations.


Planning applications are only necessary in certain situations, including installing a road facing Dormer. Even here there are exceptions to remember. This is why we help you establish and complete the steps that you need to take. One of these may be obtaining a Party Wall Agreement if you share a wall with your neighbour. The idea is to inform them of the work that you intend to do so it doesn’t cause disputes.

Building Regulations

Part of following the law is ensuring that any and all work complies with building regulations. This also benefits you by ensuring the space in question is safe for use. For example you can ensure the stairs allow safe access to the space. The structure of the property must also be suitable, along with fire safety measures. These can be considered within the design.


During the conversion, there is minimal disruption so that it is easier on you. Then you will be able to start using your new space and lay it out however you wish.
