Loft Conversions by Wallace Build

How much does a loft conversion cost?

Are you thinking of turning your loft into a usable space? It's important to know that the cost can vary quite a bit. A basic loft conversion for a small area can start at around £20,000 to £30,000. If you're looking for something more extensive and luxurious, it can go upwards of £50,000 or more. It's good practice to get quotes from different loft conversion companies and ask them about what you need so you can get a clear idea of what your loft extension will cost. Loft conversions can increase the value of your home. Whether you want an extra bedroom, a home office, or a playroom, converting your loft is often a more affordable option than moving to a new house. In this feasibility study, we'll go through the different things that can affect how much a loft conversion will cost in the UK.

If your family has outgrown your living space, consider expanding your property with a loft conversion or an extension. Choosing a reputable and experienced company like Cambridge Loft Conversions is a good idea, as we have a proven track record of providing high-quality building services. With our help, you can be confident that you'll get the extra space you need without compromising on the quality of the work done. Investing in your property is a wise decision, and a loft conversion is an excellent way to increase its value without moving. It will also allow you to design your house as you always wanted. Our team is passionate about providing personalised services to our clients, and we will be happy to guide you through every step of your new venture.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Your Loft Conversion

After the initial consultation, we will provide you with a total cost for your loft conversion requirements. If you use a local loft conversion company, you may benefit as we are a local business and will not factor in travel charges. Additionally, we will be well-versed in any permits for placing a skip in a one-way street or obtaining planning approval for loft conversions on terraced residential roads. Semi-detached properties offer more conversion options, such as a mansard roof extension or hip-to-gable conversion, which can affect pricing.

Other factors that can impact the cost of loft conversions include

  1. The quality of materials you choose.

  2. Whether you're installing roof lights, Velux or dormer windows.

  3. Installation of plumbing and wiring into the attic space.

  4. Relocating your boiler or water tank if needed.

  5. Roofing materials - slate is usually the most expensive.

  6. The installation of plumbing and wiring into the attic space

  7. The need to relocate your boiler or water tank

  8. The type of roofing materials used - slate is usually the most expensive

Most houses built before the 1960s have traditional framed roofs, making them an easier prospect for conversion and a little lower cost.

However, we will check the condition of your rafters during our consultation. It may be necessary to replace or reinforce some aspects of the structure to ensure it can support the additional weight of another storey.
