Topflite answers your questions…

At Topflite Loft Conversions we know that when planning a loft conversion you can be left with lots of questions.  As part of our service we will work with you to answer any questions you may have.  But, in the meantime here are some answers to your most frequently asked questions.

Do I have to get planning permission? 

You don’t need planning permission if your home isn’t listed or in a conservation area.  If there are any covenants on your building or you live in a flat then you may need to seek planning permission.  Most properties in the UK will not need planning permission for a loft conversion.

What about building regulations? 

You will need to ensure that building regulations are adhered to.  This is something that we will ensure we comply with.

Will I need a dormer? 

You won’t always need a dormer.  It will depend on your budget and whether you actually want one.

Will I require a new boiler? 

If you currently don’t have a combi-boiler and still have a water tank then you will need to install a new boiler.  A loft conversion will require the removal of your water tank.  Why not speak to us to see what your options are?

What lighting will I require? 

This will depend on your own tastes entirely.  Lighting in the roof is usually something that most people will go for, but it all depends on how many roof lights you want.  Usually we suggest 10% of your floor space.

How many veluxes do I need? 

If you opt for velux windows then it will depend again on your own personal taste.  We can help to advise you on what is best and how much natural light you would like.

Need more room? Think loft conversion

Are you currently considering moving house? If your reasons are lack of space in your home then maybe it is time to think again? Space can easily be found with a loft conversion.  So, if you need an extra bedroom for a child who is coming home from uni, want an office or just need another room for when guests come to stay, Topflite Loft Conversions have the answer.

Outgrowing ones home is a common problem in the UK.  But what is making life more difficult is the cost of moving.  Due to the tough economic climate, many UK homeowners have found that they are in negative equity and will, in fact, lose money on their property if they were to sell.  If they do decide to move then they will need to downsize to a smaller and less expensive property.


Then there are the costs associated with moving house.  Consider the following:

  • Estate agents fees
  • Removal costs
  • Solicitor fees
  • Surveyors fees
  • Refurbishments
  • Potential mortgage costs

Then there is the hassle:

  • Changing schools
  • Finding the right property
  • Altering your mortgage

And this is just the start.  So, if you are only moving house to give yourself some extra room, give yourself a break. Plan a loft conversion.  At Topflite we have plenty of loft conversion ideas to give you that extra space you are desperate for.

We dare you to head up there now.  Open that loft hatch, have a peer in, and check out the space you have up there.  Then give us a call.  Whether your family is growing or you simply need some new space, we are here. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for plenty more loft conversion ideas.
