What is head height?

Head height means a measurement from the top of your ceiling joist to the tallest point in your loft.

Do I need planning permission?

Most of the time you will not need planning permission for your loft conversion, the work could be carried out under permitted development rights, this information should be on the property deeds, or available through your local planning department.

How long does the loft conversion take?

On average a loft conversion project will take around 6 weeks. However, this can vary on the type of project you have.

What else do I need to do?

Before a loft conversion can start, you must have an architect draw plans of the loft, a structural engineer’s calculations and building control application. We can assist with all of these.

Do I have to use the architect you suggested?

You don’t have to use our suggested architect, we are happy to use other drawings and calculations from other parties.

Can I arrange for someone to come and look at my loft?

Yes, we offer free quotations and can give suggestions and advice. Please call 01376 561025 or fill out an enquiry form on our contact page.
