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.

Adding extra space and light in your home

You don’t always have to move your bedroom into the loft or attic, why not move your living room into the loft space. This works well for maisonettes or flats. Saving you money and creating a new light and warm space. You may even have great views.

A loft conversion can be built in any weather

We work with the weather at Jackson Lofts

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.
