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.

Yes roof windows get old and will need replacing!

When they start to leak, they course annoyance and eventually damage to other parts of the property.

If the Velux needs replacing I can do this in a few hours and when it is convenient to you or your tenants.

A damp roof may also be something simple like a cracked or slipped tile.

Velux windows come with a 10 year guarantee. This is what they to say, click here.

Who can build me a loft conversion? A professional carpenter can

Loft conversion carpenters, tend to be specialists

This is due to the complexities of the building process e.g. combining steel, timber and roofing disciplines. Knowledge of building regulations is vital.

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.

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.
