Buckinghamshire is a beautiful and varied county, with both historic and modern buildings with plenty of space in the loft for a conversion. We work around your home’s aesthetic, building structure, and your area’s requirements to ensure that you get the loft conversion that you need without drastically changing the exterior look of your home. We always select the perfect materials for any roof changes to perfectly blend in with your existing roof, and to work with the look of the street.
Loft Building Regulations
Some district councils in Buckinghamshire ask that you submit a Building Regulation application before building a loft conversion – it’s essential that your loft conversion is completed within local planning and building regulation requirements, which is why we guide you through the process from beginning to end so there are no nasty surprises during the build or after it has been completed. Our local knowledge is second to none, so we can provide excellent advice regardless of whether you live in a conservation area or a modern build.
Some councils even require building regulation applications if you are going to divide an existing loft conversion into additional rooms or if you are moving your staircase to another part of the house. However, in most instances your loft conversion can be completed as a permitted development rather than requiring planning permission.
We never provide a quote without visiting your property and fully understanding your needs. We understand that sometimes clients like to shop around and get ballpark prices, but it’s important for you to have all the information that you need to make the right decision for your home and your family. After looking at your home and discussing your needs, we make suggestions about what kind of loft conversion would best suit you. Velux loft conversions are best for home owners who do not want to go through the process of requesting planning permission and already have plenty of headroom in their loft space, while Mansard loft conversions are perfect for people who want really spacious rooms that don’t feel like a loft conversion.
