A loft conversion takes 8 weeks with Jackson Lofts Brighton

A standard loft conversion can take 8 weeks to build. During the first 6 weeks Richard and his team will access the loft via the scaffolding and keep disruption to your home to a minimum.

A Velux or eves loft conversion in an average 3 bedroom terraced house with a master bedroom and an en-suite bathroom would take between 5 to 6 weeks.

When changes are made to the initial design or specialist windows with a longer order time this can add to this build time.

From leaking old plastic roof to dry, warm and light from a Velux

Lots of small extensions, conservatories and porches have plastic roofs and this was the cheapest solution for the short term. But once they become old and leaky it’s time to replace them with tiles to match your existing roof and it will last much longer.

It will look smart, keep you dry and will be insulated against the cold. Add a Veluxe or skylight for extra light and ventilation. Also insulating the internal walls will help with any condensation.

Not all houses have the height for a useable loft conversion. A way around this is to lower the ceilings on the ground floor. This is project is best suited to houses where the owners can move out or empty houses. There is a lot of dirt and dust hidden in those ceilings.
