Loft Conversions

in Dulwich, Greenwich and the Surrounding Areas | Making the Most of Underused Attic Space

Whether you are expecting a baby soon, a relative is moving in or your kids are growing up fast, there are many reasons why it might feel like you need a bigger house. But with stamp duty, mortgages and removals costs to consider, moving home can seem like a daunting prospect. Not to mention having to leave the property you love. While you could opt for a house extension to provide the additional living space you need, there is another option to consider.

Loft conversions optimise your current living space without having to eat into your garden or patio space. This makes them a great choice for homeowners in Crystal Palace, Dulwich, Greenwich, Hackney and Walthamstow with small gardens.

Converting your attic is often a much cheaper alternative to extending your property, whilst making the most of underused space. So, if you’re someone who only ever uses the loft to store old records, clothes and Christmas decorations, why not convert your loft into a liveable, purpose-built room?

Not only will this increase your living space, but it will also add to your property’s value.

Room-in-Loft Conversions

This is the simplest and, therefore, cheapest option available.  The personnel at Britbuild Direct Ltd install rooflights into the pitch of the roof, reinforce the floor, add extra insulation and take care of all the plumbing, electrics and heating. We can even move obstacles, such as cold water storage tanks, and make structural changes to work around restrictive roof trusses. As with all our conversion projects, we also install an access staircase

Dormer Loft Conversions

This is the most popular choice among homeowners in Crystal Palace, Dulwich, Greenwich, Hackney, Walthamstow and the surrounding areas. You can opt for either a flat roof dormer or a gabled dormer, which has an inverted ‘V’ shaped roof. We simply build a structural extension out of the slope of your existing roof, creating a box shape

Mansard Loft Conversions

We usually construct this type of conversion at the rear of the property. We extend the roof backwards to create a new flat roof and raise the back wall at an angle of 72 degrees

Hip-to-Gable Loft Conversions

This involves straightening an inwardly slanting end of the roof to create a vertical wall. This is usually perfect for end of terrace houses. Just like the mansard, this creates a considerable amount of headroom and functional floorspace in your loft

Converting your attic space usually falls under Permitted Development, so you won’t require planning permission beforehand unless you are making structural changes to the roof. However, you may need permission if you live in a designated area or a listed building in Crystal Palace, Dulwich, Greenwich, Hackney or Walthamstow.
