London Loft Conversions: Choose Wisely for a Job Well Done

18.12.13

The housing market in the capital is currently experiencing a surge, with prices rapidly increasing throughout London. Loft conversions are gaining in popularity too with many people choosing to stay in their current homes because they simply cannot afford to move to a larger property.

The increase in London loft conversions may be good for builders, but leading conversion specialists Bespoke Lofts warn homeowners to choose their building company wisely to ensure a job that’s completed to the right standards. Failure to do so could result in unnecessary expense and disruption.

Planning: Get it Right

Planning is the very first step in the process and this is one of the most important stages. It’s this attention to planning detail that has helped develop Bespoke Lofts’ reputation as offering a reliable and trustworthy service throughout London. Loft conversions do not automatically require planning permission but they must fit strict criteria of size, materials and design first.

The area where the conversion is being planned is important too; conservation areas or listed buildings have a separate set of requirements to meet.

Sadly, throughout London, loft conversions have been completed by firms who have not adhered to the legal requirements of converting a loft. This can be avoided by only ever engaging a firm that is reputable and trustworthy. There are easy ways to find this out.

Choose an Expert for a Job Well-Done

The easiest way to know you’re dealing with a genuine builder is to opt for one who, like Bespoke Lofts, is accredited by the Federation of Master Builders. This is a customer’s safeguard that the company works within strict legal guidelines as well as using quality products and qualified tradespeople.

For homeowners in London, loft conversions are a great way of creating much needed space and, when using a reliable firm to undertake the work within the legal guidelines, they’re a safe bet too.
