Loft conversions are a terrific way to increase the space and value to your home. They can be costly and complicated, but thorough planning and design can make the process of your loft conversion as smooth as possible. There are lots of different aspects that can vary between loft conversions, so it is essential to have a structural survey undertaken on your existing loft to know what variety of conversion will be suitable. If other conversions have been done on similar properties in your street, check to see what sort of conversions have been done.

Loft conversions are appropriate for many homes, but your existing loft must 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 supplemental insulation or alterations to the roof height. If you don’t have the necessary ceiling height, alterations can be made to the pre-existing roof or floor of the loft, but this will be costly. Also consider the placement of the staircase, as you will need a appropriate location for a permanent staircase on the floor below the loft.

There are different styles of loft conversion. Rooflight and dormer window loft conversions are the most straightforward. Rooflight conversions will simply require setting up rooflights into the existing roof profile, while dormer windows are vertical windows with their own small roofs that are positioned in the pre-existing roof. Dormer windows add headroom in situations where it might be restricted. Additionally, there are the more expensive hip to gable and mansard style loft conversions, but these will substantially improve the size of the room.

Some loft conversions, particularly simpler styles like rooflight or dormer conversions, will be covered by permitted development rights and therefore not need planning permission, as long as you do not intend on adjusting the size of the structure of your existing roof. Hip to gable and mansard conversions usually tend to require planning permission. If you’re in a conservation area you must have planning permission, and this will usually define the type of conversion that can be used, as it’ll need to be a design that matches 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 elements of loft conversions.
