• Dormer loft conversion – Provides extra head room and floor space for en-suite bathrooms and to incorporate a better access to the loft by stairs. A dormer loft conversion can be placed at the front, rear or side of the property to better connect with existing water and drainage systems

Loft Conversion Timeframes

 

A loft conversion can take approximately 6 to 8 weeks to be completed. Therefore, a top tip is to schedule any work to begin when it will be less disruptive to your regular routine, including any social events or holidays you have coming up. The team at our loft conversion company will aim to finish installations and inspections within the agreed timeframe.

Points About Planning Permission

• If homeowners in Norwood need to apply for planning permission, our loft conversion company will arrange this directly with the local Norwood council

 

• The application process can take up to 8 weeks to be processed. However, a VELUX loft conversion or dormer loft conversion can usually be installed without it

 

• We advise that you check with the local authorities for confirmation, especially if your Norwood home is a listed building or situated in a conservation area

• Clients should also take their neighbours into consideration. Noise or potential damage may occur when constructing your cheap and cost effective loft conversion, especially if you share a wall in a semi-detached or terraced property

 

• It is best to keep you neighbours up-to-date with the timeframe for your VELUX loft conversion or dormer loft conversion to be completed
