Richard is very happy to visit your old roof window or skylight for a free estimate and advise on repairs, replacements or upgrades. Velux windows are a standard size, Richard can also estimate for upgrading to a bigger size. Please see the Velux website for sizes and prices.
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.
Velux installed and Loft Conversion built by Jackson Lofts, Brighton
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.
To arrange a visit for advise and a free estimate please email me through my contact form.
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.
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.
All loft conversions are built to building regulations
