Our team can help with this, sharing our specialist knowledge.

Will I Need Planning Permission?

Many people think that getting planning permission is a hassle. In some cases it even puts them off projects for their home. However not only can we help with this, but you might not even need it. Some conversions fall within permitted development if you are not extending your roof space.

What About My Water Tank Or Chimney?

A lot of people worry about things being in the way and think that this means they cannot have the space converted. You can move most obstacles though. Alternatively, you could update to a combi boiler and remove the water tank completely. You can have someone remove your chimney or people can work around it.

Is My Loft Too Small?

Many people see their loft as too small and believe that it is unsuitable for a conversion. However with the right type of conversion and a sensible design, you can achieve something great. If you are lacking the necessary headroom, then a roof lift can help you get what you need.

How Long Will It Take?

This is something that will depend on the conversion itself. A simple project can take around 3-5 weeks to complete. If the job is bigger and more complex, it could be up to 8 weeks. During this time we will take measures to limit disruption as much as possible.
