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.

Most loft conversion don’t require planning permission

If for example you have a Victorian terrace house, you should be able to have a loft conversion with a rear dormer. This may also allow space for a en-suite bathroom. Discuss this with Richard’s on his first visit to find out what you would like. He will then contact an architect for draft drawings.

A spiral staircase is larger than a conventional staircase

Richard is often asked about a spiral staircase to their new loft conversion. A spiral staircase takes up more space than a conventional staircase and a open tread staircase design will not pass building regulations.

All staircases are designed specifically for your home.

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.
