The required minimum height for a Loft Conversion is 2.2m (from the floor to the internal ridge). If you do not have the required height, the ceilings on your first floor can be lowered.
Many Loft conversions fall under permitted development rights which means you won’t need planning permission. Our architects will work along with you to get the necessary planning permission wherever required. Obtaining planning permission can add to the overall duration of the project.
This entirely depends on the complexity, size and type of Loft, most loft conversions take around 8-10 weeks from start to finishing. We can give you a more approximate timeline when we see your house.
Loft Conversion cost is determined by the size and type of the loft, the features, and the extras you would like, etc. Our architect will help you design the best use of your available space. Most Lofts cost between £25,000 for a Velux going to £70,000 for a Mansard Loft.

Sure, it does - it will add from 15% to 25% depending on the size, design, location and type of Loft. Read more about adding value to your Loft here.
The completion of your project will depend on several factors such as size and complexity of your loft conversion, planning permission, party wall agreement, etc. However, from our experience, a simple one bedroom and bathroom loft conversion would take around 8-10 weeks.
In many instances, the main area within your house affected by the construction will be your loft space. Our team will need to access other areas within your property such as your stairs, landing, hallway etc. We will inform you if any other area within your property will be affected prior to commencing the construction work.
We want to keep our customers 100% content with their new loft conversion, and if for any reason you find any issues or defects at any stage of your project you can speak to your dedicated project manager. We will always listen to your view and be fair and professional in solving all issues.
We will clean, sweep, and clear your property of any waste and leftover building materials. We do however recommend that you arrange a full thorough professional clean at the end of the build.

It's difficult to put the firm figure of any additional costs, however, at Loft Conversion Hertfordshire, we try to reduce the risk of cost slippage by carefully planning and designing your loft conversion from the initial site visit till the completion. Unforeseen incidents and problems can arise, and we recommend having an extra 10-15% contingency in your overall budget.
