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.

Another great review for Jackson Lofts Conversion in Brighton

Built by Richard Jackson, Jackson Loft Conversion, Brighton
Built by Richard Jackson, Jackson Loft Conversion, Brighton

“This is the second loft that Richard Jackson has converted for me”

“most importantly He is very professional and easy to work with”

“This is the second loft that Rich has converted for me, and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Rich should we move again and need a loft converting. He does a great job, managing all the sub contractors very well, but most importantly he is very professional and easy to work with. Discussing details, explaining what is being done and providing sound advice for the next phases brings far more to the job than a contractor just following the plan. Rich uses his experience to provide guidance on how to make the best out of the space you have to convert. We are extremely happy with the results, of what was a complex and challenging conversion of an entire loft space of a detached property, that also required structural support from the ground floor of the house.”

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.
