With property prices across the country rising and the ability for most homeowners to extend outwards rapidly decreasing, loft conversions are fast becoming the most popular way to extend your living space without having to move home and deal with stressful and lengthy home-buying transactions. Refresh Derby and Burton have a specialist loft conversion team helping locals every day to help their homes reach their full potential – have you considered yours yet?
The Refresh project management system works as an entirely end-to-end process; so we join homeowners when they’re first deciding what to do and how to do it, through design and planning formulation right through to the final construction phases and completion of the conversion. Our specialist team work with lofts day in day out and are able to compile project designs for even the most challenging of properties. The Refresh services include planning permission applications, building regulations approval and listed building requirements, so no matter how complex your needs, we’ll be there for the full thing.
Refresh Derby and Burton work on a bespoke basis, providing an individually tailored service to every customer and their property. There’s no type of loft conversion we’ve turned down yet, but our most common conversion projects include:
- Dormer conversions
- Mmansard conversions
- Hip to gable conversions
- Truss loft conversions
- Flat roof conversions
- Roof-lift loft conversions
Our services extend through from the design and planning to renovations and full project completion.
Although we do have a specialist team who work in loft conversions, that’s not all we offer! We also work routinely on garage conversions, cellar conversions, basement conversions and even barn conversions.
Exactly how long your loft conversion will take to complete depends on the exact scope and requirements of your project. While minor loft renovations may take less than a working week, larger conversions can run into months (excluding time allowances for planning permission applications and grants). The Refresh Derby and Burton team provide a time estimate accurate to each specific conversion project once they’ve visited the property for a consultation, so the best way to understand what can be done and how quickly is to book one in.
The exact cost of any conversion project is hugely variable depending on a variety of factors: including the project scope, existing condition of the space and the materials chosen for work. However, the Refresh Derby and Burton team understand that not everyone has an unlimited budget – and so we will work with you to accommodate whatever budget you have and adapt our services to it.
Usually, yes! Loft conversions are a popular way to add not just space to also value to a property. Many estate agents and property developers have commented on the benefits of loft conversions to homes, estimating often that a well-done conversion adding additional living space to the home can add up to 15% to a property’s value.
