Loft Conversion Croydon

Need a loft conversion Croydon and the Surrey area? We have put together some information below that should give you guidance on loft conversions Croydon, Carshalton, Epsom, Merton, Ewell, Sutton and Wallington areas as we have converted a great deal of lofts in the Croydon area, if you require any further information, please feel free to call or e-mail us.

 

Loft Dimensions - A loft conversion requires a minimum height of 2.3 metres between the ceiling boards below and the roof apex, this can be achieved if your property does not measure up by adjusting roof heights or dropping ceilings. We will also measure and make sure there is enough space for a staircase.

 

Loft Conversion Types - There are three main types of loft conversion:

 

  • Velux & trade - We convert the loft area you already have by putting in windows sloping with the roof.
  • Dormer - We build an extension to the roof to bring in new windows
  • Mansard - We create a new space with a new roof

 

Loft Plans - Our architect will need to make sure that the floor of the loft can take the new weight you are putting on it, ensuring that any structural supports are not affected and that you meet fire regulations, we can recommend one for you if you have not had the plans drawn up already.

 

Building Regulations - If the size of the building is being increased by more than 15% you will need Building Regulation approval from the Local Authority (Croydon, Sutton or Wallington). You may also need approval if you are in a conservation area or listed building or if the outside of the building is changing radically.

 

Architectural drawings, building and fire regulation plans are submitted and approved by the council before any work can go ahead, this can take around 3 months, but it varies from council to council.

 

We will offer our help and advice in all loft conversion matters to ensure that things can run smoothly.
