The type of loft conversion that is suitable for your property will depend upon its shape, condition and structure of the existing roof, budget and permitted development rights.

Advantages of Loft Conversions?

  • Loft conversions are typically more affordable per square meter than conventional extensions.  This is because extensions require extra  foundations, where loft conversion usually do not.
  • By converting your loft you get to keep your garden space the same.  Rather then extending outwards.
  • Your architect can design clever storage space ideas into your conversion.  They can also make your property look very unique and interesting by adding certain features.  It enables customers to be very creative, putting their own personality into the project.
  • Converting your loft is a good investment.  The valve of your property after your conversion is likely to increase more than the money that was invested.

Building Regulations

Building regulations ensure your new loft conversion is strong and stable enough to support an additional floor.  The new structure must also adhere to fire safety rules to ensure people inside can escape in the event of a fire.  Sound and thermal insulation of the loft conversion walls and ceilings are also taken into account.

Planning Permission

Below are some typical planning permission rules.  In reality there are many more which may or may not apply to your property.

Loft Conversion Room Height

Once your loft has been converted, there must be enough room height for people to walk about.  Typically your existing loft would need to measure about 2500mm from the top of the ceiling joist to underneath the ridge board in the apex to suitably convert.

Roof Pitch

The higher the pitch angle of your existing roof, the higher the central head height is likely to be.  Making it more ideal for a loft conversion.


Is the loft large enough to convert into usable and practical space.
