Our 7 Step

Building Process

Once all of the preparations have been put in place, and you are happy with the loft conversion plans, building work will commence.

We have put together a simple time-frame below as a general guideline. However, your loft conversion could take more time (especially if you have opted for a Mansard loft conversion or you have exceptional interior finishes).

 

Planning your loft conversion

/01

Free Consultation

We believe that you’ll be able to make the right decision with factual information and proper guidance for your loft conversion. Therefore, we offer our expertise and experience in exploring the possible options available, with no obligation.We offer a free email and telephone consultation where you can get helpful advice and information about the feasibility, costs and planning issues for lofts

/02

Site Survey

After the consultation, our trusted Loft Conversions Wales advisor will carry out a site survey on your property. They can give you advise on what kind of loft conversion suits the structure of your home. They will also ensure that the designs were being followed. After collecting all the information, you will then receive a free and comprehensive quote.

/03

Contract Signing

We’d be happy to tailor the loft conversion project according to your needs. And if you are happy with our quotation, a contract will be signed at this stage with a price and timescale. The contract will detail out the scope, price and standard of work, approvals, variations, health, safety and welfare, insurance and damage, time for completion, payment and consequences of failure by either side

/04

Drawing Out The Design

We will then start the design and planning process by converting the site survey information into an architectural drawing with details of your conversion requirements. It will be rendered through the latest technology to ensure accuracy and efficiency.

/05

Complying With Regulations

If you approve the design, we will then process the requirements for the building regulations. Most loft conversions are under the permitted development. If Lawful Development is required, we will take care of it.

/06

Building Your Loft

Once all the approvals are received, the construction will begin. A project manager will be assigned and will have the full responsibility to ensure that everything will flow smoothly and provide updates about the work progress.

/07

Completing The Loft Conversion

Once the loft conversion is complete, and you are satisfied with the result, the decoration will be carried out with your chosen interior designers. 

We will also assist you in getting relevant certifications including the building control completion certificate and give you additional details about our 10 year guarantee.

Building Your Loft Conversion

/01

How We Start Your Dream Loft Conversion

Our team will erect scaffolding where it is required and create an opening in the roof for access. At this stage, work will be completed from outside to avoid inconvenience. Any structural steel support beams for floor and dormer roof extension will be delivered and fitted at this stage.

/02

Carrying Out The Floor Tasks

We will carry out some structural alterations to your roof space and fit new floor joists for reinforcement.It will then be followed by the first visit of the building inspector to approve the floor construction.

/03

Building The Dormer

After installing the loft floor joists, we will then start building the dormer. We will complete the internal partitions of the dormer, including its noggins and insulation. The building inspection officer will visit for the second time. Then, we’ll work with the external roof leadwork, soffits, roof tiles and gutters and fix the electricals and plumbing.

/04

Fitting Your Windows And Proper Roof Ventilation

After the completion of the dormer, we will then install the windows for your loft conversion and construct the internal walls. We will also insulate all walls and ventilate your roof properly to meet the building control regulations.

/05

Fitting The Staircase On Your Loft

Next in line is the plastering work for your loft conversion. We will then create an access opening for the new staircase and install the stairs. We’ll provide a report on the work progress at this point. We will then install the electrical cables for lights and power points and complete the plaster-boarding.

/06

Decorating Your Loft Conversion

Plastering will be finalised on the first floor, stairwell and loft area, and we will do the second fix of electronics and plumbing. We will then decorate the interior of your loft conversion including skirting, adding of handrails and spindles to your staircase. We will install fixtures for the shower room and radiator connection.

/07

Completing The Requirements

After the decoration, we will clean the area and remove all the waste to prepare it for the final inspection. Before the inspection of the officer, we will also check the fireproofing and guttering. The building control officer will then inspect for compliance with building and fire regulations. 

We want to ensure that our customers will experience 100% satisfaction. Thus, we will provide an opportunity for our valued customers to let us know if you have any minor changes you’d like to make.
