1950’s semi detached house, Hove loft conversion

During construction of a loft conversion the roof is weather proofed at the end of a day. A dormer is built with the existing roof still in place. Nothing is left on the scaffold that can be blown away.

Hip to gable loft conversion

Hipped roofs where designed as an economic method of construction. By extending these you can create a lot of space within the loft.  A hip to gable loft conversion is usually required to accommodate the staircase, giving you lots of head room.

All Velux glass can be replaced says Richard Jackson

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

A loft conversion can be built anytime of the year

Anytime, is a good time to build a loft, winter or summer. Most clients would like a conversion built in Autumn for a Christmas deadline so why not try January, February and March when the construction business is quieter.

Is my loft suitable for a conversion?

Most lofts are suitable for conversion

You can check yourself by measuring the floor of your loft to the apex of your roof and this measurement is more than 7ft 6″ (2.3 metres, 90″ or 230cms) then you have a good chance of gaining the extra space you require. A consultation visit is FREE, I can help you with a ball park figure and ideas of how to get maximum space for your conversion.

Please email me through this contact form to organise a suitable time for me to pop round.

Will my loft conversion require planning permission ?

It may do if your house is in a conservation area

Most lofts don’t need planning permission. Have a look at this government planning portal website. If planning permission is needed, my architectural services team will be able to advise you. The roof of this house was extended considerably and did not require any planning permission.

How long does a loft conversion take Brighton?

A loft conversion takes between 6 to 8 weeks to build

I am always asked this question and of course it varies on the size of your house. If it were an average, 3 bedroom terraced house, a dormer loft conversion including a master bedroom and with an en-suite bathroom, this would take between 6 to 8 weeks.
