Client Reviews

Frequently asked questions

How do I know I have enough head height for a loft conversion?
The suitability of a loft conversion is strictly defined by the head height of the room. Industry set standards dictate that the roof centre height as well as the ceiling joists height must be a minimum of 2.2 m.

The required industry height should be present to complete a loft conversion without problems even though it may be possible to install a loft conversion in its absence.

When can you permit development be provided to allow conversion?
One of the most important factors that has to do with a planning permit application is the loft size. The size requirements for approved construction is such that the loft conversion size must not be greater than 50 cubic m in the case of a detached property and 40 cubic m in the case of a terrace property.
Is a dormer a necessity for loft conversions when more space is required to achieve the requisite dimension?
All loft conversions don’t require enough space for a dormer. It depends on the particular needs of the customer and the environment we need to deal with within the roof room. The dormer can become a part of the requirements if the customer requires extra rooms or showers to be added as part of the loft conversion installation. Stairs access can be created by the use of a dormer in case the property in question is semi-attached.

Our approach to all of our projects and services is focused on customer satisfaction which is why we take great care in carefully listening to all the requirements of our customers no matter what the type of their home extension is.

Where will the staircase go?

The stairs that lead to the attic can be ideally placed above the existing set of stairs.
To install a new staircase, cutting any area of the existing living space will not be required as an enclosure can be created along the side of the wall to accommodate the new staircase.

Your house’s current floor plan is another deciding factor.  Other alternatives particularly when you are contemplating a hip to gable conversion can be considered based on the scale and your attic conversion plans.

What is a hip to back gable loft conversion?
Various properties today suffer from a limited space in their attics because of the presence of sloping edges and traditional hipped roofs. This restriction presents a challenge in creating a conversion of the loft that does not need to expand your house.
Properties that future these limitations are much better served by hip to gable loft extensions.
Under what ceiling height can loft conversions be easily installed?

The minimum ceiling height to be converted is 2.2 m.  The height can be calculated exactly between the Timber Ridge and the top of the joist which is located on the ceiling.

Even after repairs, you can expect to receive 1.9 m of living space in terms of the height of the ceiling of your new loft conversion.

What do mansard loft conversions usually entail?
Francoise Mansard, a 17th-century French architect is the inspiration behind the name of the mansard loft.  You can find this conversion almost always at the back end of the house.  The flat roof is a standard component of this loft conversion, and it also features a sloping wall at the back.
Is an architect required for a loft conversion?
To assess the ability of the structure to withstand the new conversion, you will need expert guidance from an architect.  This assessment will determine whether structural changes such as the installation of a new roof is required for your loft conversion.
Is a loft conversion more economically efficient than an extension is?
One of the most viable options which you can use to increase living space in your house is by using a loft conversion. Increasing the size of your home is a much more economically efficient choice than moving to a new location. 
Is scaffolding necessary for every loft conversion?
It comes down to the individual contract. Those contractors who want to work from the outside of the building will install scaffolding wherever they need to work. From the scaffold they will gain entry to the workspace, and so they might not need to enter the flat at all in the early start of the work.
Is the party wall agreement always required for a loft conversion?
Party wall agreements are only required for walls that are shared between you and someone else. No additional permissions are required for detached houses as shared walls do not exist in these types of properties.
Can my loft conversion project include a new bedroom?
A loft may only be classified as a space if it meets a certain set criteria. All relevant building regulations as well as the different requirements for all bedrooms must be met for the bedroom to be added to a loft conversion.
Can my neighbours stop my loft conversion? 
They can extend the time that will take for the conversion to complete but it may not be possible to stop the conversion altogether. If you tell your neighbours about your plans ahead of schedule, then there is a high chance that they will not cause problems for your project.
Is it possible to add a room inside my attic?
In order to convert your attic, you need to consider the building requirements that qualify attics for transformation into a living area. Your attic’s ceiling height from the floor must be at a minimum 2.2 m in order for it to qualify for transformation. If your attic’s height does not meet this requirement, you will need to either raise the roof of your attic, or lower the floor level of the property.
Are newly constructed houses available for loft conversions?
It is difficult to perform a loft conversion in a new house but is normally possible. Some buildings that still have units for sale often have certain restrictions that might limit what you can do with the property that can also include adding a loft conversion.
What benefits can I achieve with a loft conversion?
The market value of your residential property can be greatly enhanced by the use of a loft conversion. Latest National Building Society research has shown that a loft conversion can always add more than 25% to your home’s value.
Do you need planning permission for a loft conversion? 
Given that the loft conversion in your building is considered permitted development, planning permission is not generally required.

Elite builders London are expert loft conversion specialists which will ensure that your loft conversion is completed within the timeframe we commit. We will deliver your loft conversion project within the exact timeframe that we commit to you at the start. Loft conversions ideally take between one and three months to complete.
