Most London loft conversions cost between £30k - £70k depending on type, size, works required and finish. Different types of loft conversion all have different associated costs. Pricing is very much dependent on different factors including fixtures and fittings, number of windows, the type of build and the work involved.
The London Loft Converters will advise you on the possibilities available and work with you to achieve your dream for your agreed budget. Once we have given you a fixed price for your loft conversion, you can rest assured there will be no extra hidden costs further down the line.

The loft conversion time will obviously depend upon the amount of work required. Whether you choose a Velux conversion, a dormer conversion, a hip to gable conversion or a Mansard conversion, your design will still be bespoke to your individual property. Every property is different and some can be more of a challenge then others. As a rough guide, a loft conversion should take between four and five weeks. The main things that you will need to consider in terms of how long a project will take are the three phases.
The Three Phases: Design, Planning and Building
There are three phases that need to be carried out to ensure that a project runs to plan, on time and looks exactly like the conversion you had envisaged. If any one of these phases is disrupted for any reason, then the conversion project may take much longer than first anticipated.
Design: If the design is going to alter the structure of your property then we will require an architect to produce a drawing of the exterior of your home. This is to not only give you an understanding of how your conversion will affect the outside of your home but it will also be required for any planning permission that is applied for.
Planning: This is the planning permission you will need to get from the local authority. It may also include the purchasing of any materials we might need to complete your loft conversion.
Building: As soon as the conversion project has been approved by the local authorities and all of the necessary products and materials have arrived, The London Loft Converters can begin your build. Construction starts with the roof and any exterior works required before the team move indoors to complete electrics, plumbing and plastering work. The build time also depends on the type of loft conversion you are having. For instance, a Velux or dormer conversion tend to be quicker than a hip to gable or Mansard conversion. Whatever your choice, our professional team aim to complete the project as efficiently as possible to eliminate any unnecessary disruption.
Please contact our loft conversion team for further details on any of these stages should you require more information.
In most cases the answer is yes. However, there are a few basic requirements that need to be met such as a minimum of 2.3m head height in your existing loft.
There are several different types of loft conversion available including Velux, Dormer, Hip to Gable and Mansard. The type of conversion you choose will be determined by your existing property and your budget.
