 Most Frequently Asked Questions about Loft Conversions

Is My Loft Suitable For A Conversion? 

There is a combination of criteria that will help you assess the suitability of your loft conversion. Look out for any similar houses in your area that appear to have undergone a conversion. A minimum height of 2.2m is required, however, you will ideally have a measurement of 2.2m -2.4m for a traditional roof and 2.4m-2.6m for a modern trussed roof. If you do not have the head height, there are ways around the problem but these can be complex and expensive. You will need to consider other features in the loft that could pose an issue, for example, a chimney stack in the loft or an existing water tank system that will be required to be removed and sealed. 

Will a Loft Conversion increase the value of my property in Hertfordshire? 

According to recent research undertaken by Nationwide, a loft conversion that adds a double bedroom and a bathroom could add as much as 22% + to the value of a three-bedroom, one-bathroom house. 

What is the realistic budget for a Loft Conversion in Hertfordshire? 

Once you know that your loft is suitable for a conversion, you can start looking for ideas on how to properly use your new space. You will also need to allocate a realistic budget for the project to cover everything. Always remember to assign a contingency, as within construction there is always a surprise or two on the way. The overall cost of the loft conversion will depend on the size, complexity, and style of your loft conversion. Most Velux loft conversions start from £25,000 to £40,000, Terraced rear dormer conversions start from £45,000 to £55,000 and a hip to gable loft conversion ranges from £50,000 to £60,000. When allocating your budget, keep a check on the average prices for the essentials such as bathroom fixtures, fittings, flooring, painting, etc.

Do I need planning permission for a Loft Conversion in Hertfordshire?

You will not always require planning permission for a Loft Conversion, in many cases the conversion will fall under permitted development rights. The design of your loft has to comply with a number of specified parameters, the most important of them include: 

-The Loft conversion must not exceed the current height of the existing roof under Permitted development rights.

-It must not add more than 40 cubic metres of volume for terraced houses and 50 cubic metres for all other property types.

-The property must not have already utilised its Permitted Development rights to add an additional storey

-Balconies and Verandas with raised platforms are not allowed under Permitted Development, only Juliet Balconies are allowed. 

How long does a Loft Conversion Take? 

The length of a Loft Conversion project depends on the complexity of the design, the type of loft required, and whether any structural reinforcements are needed. On average, a loft conversion project can be completed in between 6 to 10 weeks, with around eight weeks being the average completion time.

Types of Loft Conversions

We specialise in the following types of Loft Conversions in Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas:

Dormer Loft Conversions

A Hip To Gable Loft Conversion adds considerable amount of head height to the loft, as well as habitable floor space. The roof is stripped back to the top of the hip, the wall built into a gable, and extending the ridge to meet the gable.

Hip to Gable Loft Conversions

Velux Loft Conversions

A Velux Loft Conversion is also known as Rooflight loft conversion. The roof line is untouched as the Velux windows are fitted flushed to the existing roof line. Velux loft conversion works perfects for properties that already have good headroom.

Mansard Loft Conversions

A Mansard Loft Conversion is named after a French architect Francois Mansard. This conversion has a flat roof to the rear of the property with back wall sloping inwards at an angle of 72 degrees. Mansard loft conversion normally requires planning permission.

L Shaped Loft Conversions

The L-shaped dormer conversion is most popular with mid-terraced period properties and gives maximum space. By going for a L-shaped conversion one can comfortably add 2 bedrooms and a Bathroom. The floor layout has endless options.

Pitched Dormer Loft Conversions

Pitched Roof Dormer conversions are popular if you live in a conservation area. They are more attractive to look at in comparison to a full width dormer. If you want to install a pitched roof dormer to the rear of your property, you will not require planning permission as it falls under permitted development.
