Frequently asked questions.

Can my loft be converted?

The majority (around 90%) of conventional lofts can be converted. Building regulations require the highest point of the loft to be a minimum of 2.3m. If you are not sure or want further advice we can arrange to visit you to discuss your options without obligation.

Do I need planning permission?

In most cases planning permission is not required. Factors such as the addition of a dormer or if the property has been significantly extended in the past will dictate whether or not an application needs to be made. Bigger Space Construction have a lot of experience in dealing with the local authorities and can apply for planning permission on your behalf. For further guidance please feel free to contact us today.

How long will it take to convert my loft?

This will depend on the size of your property and the type of conversion taking place but a typical loft conversion will take between 6-8 weeks to complete. Before the process begins, we will set a schedule which will be followed closely in order to finish your project as quickly as possible.

Will I have to move out while the work is taking place?

No, it will not be necessary for you to move out while the work is taking place as the majority of work is carried out in the loft space which has not been part of your every day living space. Although some disruption can be expected due to the nature and size of the work we will do everything that we can to ensure that this is kept to a minimum and does not impact your day to day life too much.

How much does a loft conversion cost?

The cost of a loft conversion is determined by numerous factors such as the size of the project and different features included in the design. We would be happy to visit you to look at your individual circumstances and offer you a free consultation and no obligation estimate.
