Excellent review for Jackson Loft Conversions, Brighton East Sussex UK

“I can’t fault Richard’s work and craftsmanship…” Carpenter Brighton

“Richard is a trustworthy human being, he is professional and thorough in his work. He plans well, explains and offers good advise on what actually needs to be done, as well as keeping us informed throughout the stage’s of development. He kept everything tidy and cleared up which is also a really good quality in my book. He has great contractors who do their jobs well and efficiently. All in all I can’t fault Richard’s work and craftsmanship. It’s like a family business. Thank you for everything.. we love our new loft conversion.”

What is the minimum head height for a loft conversion?

Ridge height easy check by Jackson Loft Conversions, Brighton East Sussex UK
Ridge height easy check by Jackson Loft Conversions, Brighton East Sussex UK

It is about 2.1 metres / 210 cm / 7 feet / 84 inches for a loft conversion

If you can stand up in your loft you are doing well. Don’t be shy, measure the height with a tape measure. The ridge is the centre point of your roof, this will be where you measure from and down to your feet.

If your attic loft is under 6 foot and you are unable to stand up, your loft conversion will struggle to pass building regulations.

Richard will double check the height of your attic loft on his FREE ESTIMATE visit to you.

An experienced carpenter can build your loft conversion

A carpenter (see Wikipedia) is one of the oldest professions, they build wooden structures and I am very proud to be one. Carpentry also involves engineering as well as problem solving. There are different aspects:

A 1st fix carpenter builds the structure of a house, extension or roof.

A 2nd fix carpenter finishes of a project, hanging doors, fits skirtings, architrave and staircases.
