Breathable membrane laid under floor boards for the insulation to sit in. Victorian house, Jackson Lofts, Brighton
There are lots of websites showing the process for example (see here). Its a great time to check under the floorboards for anything that could be damaging your building, e.g. piles of soil, rotten joists or even water leaks.
While the floor is up, it is also a great time to add in new sockets and electrics. Need an electrician contact Leon here.
Richard uses bespoke staircases made by local Joiner’s shop. All quality redwood timber. Traditional methods used so no squeaking noise as you step from tread to tread.
Richard also takes great care to match your existing newel posts and spindles, you can have them turned on a lathe, at a local workshop of your style is not available off the shelf. Beach wood is best as it is stronger.

“Complicated job which involved lowering our existing ceilings”
“Communications, was very professional in his approach”
“Rich worked with us over summer 2018 on our loft conversion, a complicated job which involved lowering our existing ceilings. His ideas and input at the start were invaluable in getting the project off the ground, when we were unsure as to whether or not it would be possible. Once work commenced, Rich was very responsive in terms of communications, was very professional in his approach, and the standard of his work was excellent throughout. We would have no hesitation in recommending him!”
Insulation is a big part of the loft conversion build and can be very time consuming. Your quote will come with standard Celotex insulation, if you require something different this is not a problem. Remember the thicker the insulation the less you will have to heat the room. For a FREE estimate please email Richard through this contact form to organise a suitable time to pop round.
