The Loft Conversion Process

The Loft Conversion Process - What To Expect | Bespoke Lofts

"The designers at Bespoke knew exactly the look that we were aiming for and were full of innovative ideas to make it happen. The tradesmen who worked on our project were efficient and courteous and really seemed to know what they were doing. We can’t believe the difference that the conversion has made to our home, and we can’t wait to show it off to everyone!"

Jackie, Buckhurst Hill

Loft conversions  vary considerably depending on the property, and in most cases a loft  conversion is entirely possible. We will advise you of the possibilities available to you in  consideration of your requirements and talk through all your options.

We dislike pushy  salesmen as much as you do! We will never try to talk you into something that  you don’t want. We will always  treat you and your home with the utmost respect, and will always take the time  to listen to any concerns you may have. 

During our  initial free consultation we will take measurements and at our next meeting we  will present you with a scaled design specifying the position of the stairs and  the size and shape of the loft room. At this stage you will receive a quote for  the work needed carefully detailing each step so that there are no surprises.  Our pricing is totally transparent - we don’t believe in hidden extras. From architectural plans and design, planning permission applications  (if required) and building regulations, we will handle the entire process. Once  we have building control approval, building works can begin on your new loft  conversion at a time that suits you.

We will deal with all aspects of building works right up to the point  that your loft conversion is ready for decoration. Our project managers will be  available to answer any questions and deal with any problems and will keep you  appraised throughout the entire process from start to finish.

We want you to be happy, and will do our very best to carry out our work  with consideration for your comfort at all times.
