On 1st October 2008, and again more recently, the planning regulations in London were simplified and as a result the number of householders opting to convert their lofts vastly increased with some households no longer requiring planning permission. We can help establish the relevant requirements for your property as it may be possible to convert your loft conversion under Permitted Development regulations. If you would like to add extra living space, increase the value of your home and avoid the stress of moving, we offer loft conversions that are of the highest quality in terms of design, craftsmanship and sustainability. Our work will not only give you additional space but will enhance both your property and your lifestyle.
what are the different types of loft conversion?
There are four main types of loft conversions and the type we recommend for your property will depend on a number of factors – property style, roof height, available space, conservation area, local planning regulations, your budget and needs.

The majority of houses that are hip roofed in style tend to have a reasonably small internal volume, so for a conversion to be practical, a hip-to-gable conversion is a smart solution. This type of conversion involves changing the sloping side of the property to a flat gable end. This increases the size of the loft space, often creating extra space for the staircase. As this type of loft conversion changes the outline of the roof, planning permissions may well be required. We also specialize in l-shaped hip-to-gable loft conversions.
