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.

“I can’t fault Richard’s work and craftsmanship…” Carpenter Brighton

“Richard is a trustworthy human being, he is professional and thorough in his work. He plans well, explains and offers good advise on what actually needs to be done, as well as keeping us informed throughout the stage’s of development. He kept everything tidy and cleared up which is also a really good quality in my book. He has great contractors who do their jobs well and efficiently. All in all I can’t fault Richard’s work and craftsmanship. It’s like a family business. Thank you for everything.. we love our new loft conversion.”
