Four Things to Look for in a Good Loft Conversion Company

When deciding upon a loft conversion company to use, it’s important to find one you can entrust your home to. But thinking about it like that can be a little daunting. However, there are certain things you can look for which will distinguish a loft conversion specialist from its rivals. Here are just four aspects which will tell you that your chosen loft conversion company is a cut above the rest.


1. A Trusted Reputation


This is the most important aspect which will distinguish your loft conversion specialist from its rivals. Does it have a trusted reputation? Ask how long they have been trading and whether you can see examples of their work. It’s also important to request and verify references, testimonials and reviews from previous clients.


2. Project Managed from Start to Finish


Something to ask about when deciding upon a loft conversion company is whether you will have a dedicated loft conversion project manager allocated to you. This may well consist of several people at different times during the build:


• You will likely have a professional design consultant at the start of the loft conversion process. They will send a qualified surveyor and architect to visit the site who will then draw up the plans alongside consultation from you and the design consultant. Once you are happy with the plans drawn up, your loft conversion specialist can then complete the final structural calculations and can send the plans to your local authority for the planning permission process if necessary. 

• You will then have a project manager either on site or in the office (or both!) who will be your main point of contact in ensuring that everything goes smoothly for you. 

• You may also have a separate contracts manager, if this role isn’t being undertaken by your project manager. A contracts manager will visit the site regularly to ensure that everything is going smoothly and to plan.


Choosing a loft conversion specialist who can take care of everything for your from start to finish will really help you to feel like you have entrusted your home with the right company.


3. Delivering on Time and on Budget


A reputable loft conversion company should be able to give you a clear timeframe which they will then try their utmost to stick to. When considering loft conversions, you should also make sure that you get a quote from your chosen specialists rather than an estimate, as this will ensure that the budget set is transparent, and you won’t be left with any nasty surprises in the shape of a hefty bill at the end of the build.


4. A Comprehensive Guarantee


Before choosing a specialist loft conversion company, check with them what sort of guarantee, if any, you’ll receive once the build is complete. If you choose your loft conversion company well, you should, of course, not have any problems which would warrant calling on the guarantee, but it’s great to have the peace of mind that it is backing up the work.
