We aim to complete standard loft conversions in 12 weeks but if we believe your particular loft will require longer, we will let you know when giving you your quote. If there are changes made or unforeseen circumstances encountered we’ll make you aware of how this may affect the time frame.
Every home is unique and it isn’t possible to know how much it will cost until we have looked at the job and had a conversation with you about your needs. Our quotes are free of charge and go into detail about what will be included in the total cost.
Yes, we use a company called “Impressive Scaffolding” and organise the put up and takedown of the scaffolding.
Yes, included within your total price are the costs of the applications for planning permission where needed and for building regulation inspections and certificates.
Unfortunately, dust is inevitable when building work is being carried out in your house. We use dustsheets and plastic sheeting in an effort to minimise this for you. Our team uses the vacuum cleaner regularly to help reduce the amount of dust
If you live in a detached house you don’t need one. If you share a wall with a neighbour it depends on how we do the conversion as to whether or not a party wall agreement is needed.

Types of conversions
It’s important to carefully think about what style of conversion you’d like to go for and choose whatever suits your needs best. We can design and construct several different lofts and have included a few below for you to think about.
When we survey your property we’ll advise you on the best option for your loft.
What is dormer?
We design and build Dormer conversions in Epsom and surrounding areas. A dormer conversion opens up the existing roof to create a spacious, liveable area – perfect if you don’t want sloped ceilings. This versatility gives a lot of choice for how you could use it; you could have an extra bedroom or bathroom, a brand new office, or if you have a creative streak, even an art studio.
From the outside, it’s flat roof and modular design can make a dormer loft very contemporary. Another advantage is you can blend it in with the property’s aesthetics by incorporating the same tile or brick design. We’re happy to accommodate your taste and go with whatever suits you best
Hip to Gable
What is hip to gable?
The process of constructing a hip to gable loft involves changing the shape and angle of your roof in order to create a lot more space underneath it. Not all houses can have a hip to gable as it requires a specific type of roof.
The benefit of this type of loft is that it doesn’t alter the look of your house too much and creates a functional room.
Over the years we have completed many hip to gable conversions, in fact, we recently finished one in Epsom, Surrey. When you contact us for a quote for your loft, do ask about the past work we’ve done and we will happily show you around some of the jobs.
What is Mansard?
A Mansard conversion is another way in which you can gain a good amount of head height in your new loft room. The name comes from the French architect, Francios Mansart, who pioneered refined and elegant building designs in the Baroque era.
This type has the benefit of a flat roof and minimal sloped ceilings. Traditionally, a Mansard is constructed on the rear of the property so the front of your property will not be altered. Small dormer windows are usually fitted in Mansard conversions to give maximum light in the new loft space

- Mid-terrace House
- End of terrace
- Detached house
