A loft conversion takes between 6 to 8 weeks to build, Jackson Lofts in Lewes East Sussex

It depends on the size of your house. If it were an average, 3 bedroom terraced house, having a Dormer loft conversion including a master bedroom and with an en-suite bathroom, this would take between 6 to 8 weeks to build. When changes are made to the initial design or specialist windows with a longer order time can add to this build time.

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.
