We are specialists in Loft & Garage Conversions to give you more space in your home. For over 30 years we have provided quality building services in the Bloxwich, near Walsall in the West Midlands area.
Dormer loft conversions are popular and provide that much needed head space (often limited by non-dormer conversions). Not only that but they can provide financial benefits should you decide to sell your home by creating a full size, usable room/s. We can advise on the best use of space, types of staircase plus the all important budget. What's more, we are happy to provide the names of our happy customers so that you can sure we are genuine, professional and reliable.
We often get asked if Planning Permission is needed for a loft or attic conversion. The easy answer is it is permitted development BUT there are a good number of limits and conditions to observe. For instance, in older properties a survey may be needed if there are protected species such as bats. In other circumstances, consideration may need to be given to load bearing walls.
Don't take risk which could be expensive to rectify later. So, make sure you speak to an expert before starting a project. For more information, read the governments Planning Portal advice here >> or Contact Us for local advice in the Bloxwich area.
An alternative to using loft or attic space for additional living space might be your garage (if you have one). Often converting a garage doesn't need planning permission which can speed up getting the project started (though you must check to be certain).
To get the most benefit from the conversion the result, when completed, it should look and feel as though it is part of the house. To achieve this, you benefit from our years of experience and having complete many, many such projects you won't be disappointed.
If your house isn't in a Conservation area and isn't an Historical or Listed Building, it can often be that a house extension to the back of a house is 'Permitted Development' (again always check with your local authority planning dept).
