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.

A mansard loft conversion, named after the 17th-century French Architect Francois Mansard, is situated to the rear of the property. This type of conversion has a flat roof, with the back wall sloping inwards at an angle of 72 degrees. Windows are usually housed within small dormers.
Mansard loft conversions normally require planning permissions, due to the large changes to the roof shape and structure.
In addition, we specialise in l-shaped mansard loft conversions, which can really open up the space and add even more value to your property. The l-shaped mansard loft conversion works particularly well if you are converting the loft into an open-plan bedroom with en-suite.
