Types Of Loft Conversions
You might have only one roof, but you have a lot of options:
Traditional – Convert within the existing roof space
Dormer – Place multiple or single extension to your existing roof space to increase usable floor space
Mansard – Very similar to a dormer, but more used on older style buildings.
Hip To Gable – This is where we convert an existing hipped roof, replace that section of the roof, and plus a gable end in creating space just like a dormer
Roof Lift – Where you need more space and your existing roof is not suitable for conversion we replace the entire roof structure
DIY or Partial – This could be any of the above, but where you want to complete part of the work. With this we complete the structural work and any additional tasks you do not want to tackle.
So what is roof lift then? Quite simply put we replace your entire roof, giving you the space you really need.
Unlike most roof lift companies we know, we do this at almost zero impact on the existing property, allowing you to stay in the comfort of your home whilst the work is completed.

Planning Permission and Building Regulation
What is the difference and what does it mean for your loft conversion?
It is generally assumed that a form of permission is required for building work or alterations of properties. However, it may not always be clear how the planning and building regulations approval regimes differ.
Building regulations set standards for the design and construction of buildings to ensure the safety and health for people in or about those buildings. They also include requirements to ensure that fuel and power is conserved and facilities are provided for people, including those with disabilities, to access and move around inside buildings.
Planning permission seeks to guide the way our towns, cities and countryside develop. This includes the use of land & buildings, the appearance of buildings, landscaping considerations, highway access and the impact that the development will have on the general environment.
For many types of building work, separate permission under both regimes (separate processes) will be required. For other building work, such as internal alterations, buildings regulations approval will probably be needed, but planning permission may not be.
