How Long Will It Take You To Complete My Loft Conversion?

This depends on the complexity and difficulty of the project, larger scale project usually take longer to complete, a standard loft conversion will take several weeks, however that is as specific as we can be with a potential client before viewing the property itself.

We are “sticklers for details” and insist that the property is given a full and accurate assessment before we quote for a project, but no need to worry, the assessments are relatively quick and painless & are designed to “put you in the picture” to manage your expectations properly before you make any decisions about structural amendments to your property.

Loft conversions in Bristol generally take no longer specifically than any other area in the United Kingdom, so there is no need to worry about specific issues relating to that area, the only potential issue would be something that is specific to the property itself, usually these can be resolved and issues are rare to begin with, you would be notified at the time of assessment as to whether or not there would be an issue.

Types Of Loft Conversion In Bristol

Mansard Loft Conversions

These are conversions that can be used for a variety of different properties, commonly used on terraced housing, it involves the loft being expanded at the front of the property with increased space being made available at the upper quadrant of the house that usually looks almost like a tortoise shell being added to the upper front.

Example Mansard Conversion:

Dormer Loft Conversions

A dormer loft conversion is a more traditional looking loft expansion with the house being built upward and a new area being built onto the top of the property enabling a wall to expand through the ceiling and additional windows being added where the roof used to be situated, dormer conversions can be built onto most houses and are very common.

Example Dormer Conversion:

Velux Loft Conversion

Usually a velux conversion is when there is no space built out from the existing roof, this is when the existing space is built upon with no adjustment to the roof-line, meaning there is no visible extension from the outside other than the velux windows, these conversions are highly versatile & can fit many different size & spaced areas.

What Are The Usual Price Ranges For Bristol Loft Conversions?

Again this will be dependent on the results of the assessment, there is no accurate way to predict what the costs may be without looking at the property first, however, as a general rule of thumb a conversion could cost anything from £20,000 to £28,000 (broad range) or even more such as up to £40,000 if there are specialist requirements or if the property is larger scale than other types of property. As stated previously the only accurate assessment of cost comes from the accurate assessment of the property, which our experts carry out for you, free of charge.

Also during the point of consultation, our builders can answer any additional queries you may have in relation to the build, we are able and happy to help you.

Will My Bristol Loft Conversion Require Planning Permission?

Generally speaking loft conversions (in Bristol or otherwise) usually come under “permitted development” however if there are features about the loft expansion that come outside of the existing footprint of the house in terms of elevation or if the conversion has features that could be objectionable by the closely residing public, this could be cause for enquiry with the planning authority, however generally speaking no planing permission would be required for a loft conversion in Bristol.

What Is Different About Bristol Loft Conversions Than Other Areas?

Usually residential areas of Bristol are quite “built up” as Bristol is the 8th most highly populated city in Britain.

Bristol is a vibrant city that offers a lot of opportunity for the development of property, loft conversions is one of many opportunities for the development of your home.

This poses no issue to any loft conversion projects & is no problem to our builders, we are able and happy to work with you in constructing the perfect loft space for you.
