Loft conversions are a great way to add space and value to your home. They can be costly and complicated, but careful planning and design will make the process of your loft conversion as smooth as is possible. There are many different factors that can differ between loft conversions, so it’s important to have a structural survey done on your existing loft space to know what type of conversion will be suitable. If other conversions have been done on similar properties in your road, check and see what sort of conversions have been done.

Loft conversions can be done in many homes, however your current loft should have at least 2.2-2.4m of ceiling height in order to undertake a conversion as some of this space will be lost to additional insulation or adjustments to the roof height. If you don’t have the necessary ceiling height, modifications can be made to the existing roof or floor of the loft, but this will be costly. Also consider the positioning of the staircase, as you will need a appropriate location for a permanent staircase on the floor below the loft.

There are lots of kinds of loft conversion. Rooflight and dormer window loft conversions are the most straightforward. Rooflight conversions will simply require putting in rooflights into the existing roof profile, while dormer windows are vertical windows with their own small roofs that are positioned in the existing roof. Dormer windows add headroom in situations where it might be limited. There’s also the higher priced hip to gable and mansard style loft conversions, but these will drastically raise the size of the area.

Some loft conversions, particularly more straightforward types like rooflight or dormer conversions, will be covered by permitted development rights and consequently not require planning permission, so long as you do not intend on changing the size of the structure of the existing roof. Hip to gable and mansard conversions are more likely to require planning permission. If you are in a conservation area you must have planning permission, which will generally stipulate the kind of conversion that you can use, as it will need to be a style that suits the area. If any of the walls of the loft are terraced, you will need a Party Wall Agreement. Building regulations will apply to all areas of loft conversions.
