How long will it take to complete?
The answer to this question is it varies greatly from job to job, but as we only work on one project at a time, turnaround time from start to finish is generally quite quick. For example, a three bed semi with a Dorma window would take less than three weeks to complete.

Is there any mess created?

As with any building work there is always mess and there is definitely no exception with loft conversions, every possible precaution is taken to keep dust leakage to a minimum. Cleaning is carried out at the end of each day and constantly removed from site.

Is there a certificate that accompanies the work?
All jobs are carried out under the control of the local authority and are completed to a high standard to receive a council certificate.

If I decide I want a loft conversion what do I do?
Firstly, give us a call or email us. We will come out and survey the property, offer advice, and give you an approximate costing of the works required. Once our services have been employed you need to do nothing else apart from watch the progress. We sort out the planning, structural calculations and deal with the local authority right through to completion.

How much does it cost?

Obviously this varies greatly from job to job but here's an idea. A three bed semi with Dorma which would include stairs, fire doors, all electrics, plumbing - basically everything - would approximately cost £15,500 including VAT. There is a deluxe package available which includes, decorating, carpets, lights and sockets for an extra cost determined by specification of the customer.
