A Velux loft conversion by Loftcon is one of the most popular and efficient ways to transform an underused attic into a vibrant, functional living space. Whether you’re looking to create an additional bedroom, a home office, or a relaxing retreat, Velux windows provide a versatile and cost-effective solution to bring light and life into your loft.

What is a Velux Loft Conversion?

A Velux loft conversion involves installing Velux roof windows into the sloping roof of your attic. Unlike dormer conversions, which require structural alterations to extend the roof, a Velux conversion maintains the existing roofline. This makes a Velux conversion less invasive and often easier to gain planning permission. Velux windows are renowned for their quality, durability, and ability to flood your space with natural light, creating an airy and open atmosphere. Loftcon have a wide experience of fitting all styles of Velux, including Velux Quattro, Duo Velux, Velux balcony and much more!

Benefits of a Velux Loft Conversion

1. **Increased Natural Light**: Velux windows are designed to maximize the amount of daylight entering your loft. The influx of natural light not only makes the space feel larger and more inviting but also reduces your reliance on artificial lighting, cutting down on energy costs. Loftcon will advise on the best position of the window to maximise natural light in your room.

2. **Improved Ventilation**: Proper ventilation is essential in any living space, and Velux windows excel in this area. With easy-to-use opening mechanisms, you can ensure a steady flow of fresh air, maintaining a comfortable and healthy environment.

3. **Cost-Effective**: Since a Velux loft conversion doesn’t require major structural changes, it’s typically more affordable than other types of loft conversions. Loftcon often complete Velux conversions within 5 weeks.

4. **Versatility**: Velux windows come in a variety of sizes and styles, allowing you to customize your loft conversion to suit your needs and aesthetic preferences. From manual to remote-controlled windows, there’s a solution for every requirement and Loftcon have years of experience with fitting these.

5. **Enhanced Property Value**: Adding a Velux loft conversion can significantly increase the value of your home. Extra living space is a highly sought-after feature for potential buyers, making your property more attractive on the market.

### Planning Your Velux Loft Conversion

Before starting your Velux loft conversion, there are several important steps to consider:

1. **Assessment**: Our experienced and friendly surveyor will visit and evaluate your attic’s suitability for conversion. Check the height, pitch, and overall condition of your roof. A professional assessment carried out by Loftcon will help determine if any reinforcements or repairs are needed.

2. **Planning Permission**: In most cases, Velux loft conversions fall under permitted development rights and do not require planning permission. However, if your property is in a conservation area or subject to other restrictions, you may need to seek approval from your local planning authority. Loftcon are able to provide in-house architectural drawings, pre planning and full planning applications.

3. **Design**: Loftcon will work with you to create a detailed plan for your new space. Together we consider the placement of windows, insulation, electrics, and any additional features you want to include, such as en-suite bathrooms or built-in storage.

4. **Installation**: Loftcon are a reputable contractor with over 40 years of experience in loft conversions and Velux window installations. We are certified by the Federation of Master Builders and carry all work out to a high standard.

Loftcon can recommend trusted decorators, tilers etc to complement the light and airy feel of your loft. This would make the most of the unique character of the space. Loftcon also sub-contract our own plumbers, electrician and plasterer to enable a smooth transition between phases of the work.
