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.

Replace and install of the whole roof window or just the glass panel

Double glazing does not last forever, if yours has condensation on the inside of the panel this can be from a broken seal. Velux windows are still making the same size frames and the glass can easily be replaced.
