Many properties have tremendous potential that is largely undiscovered. This is a real waste because it might easily be utilised for loft conversions that will give your home a fresh start.

If you hire a highly qualified business like Firtree Builders to complete your job, you can rest assured that the cost will be more than compensated by the increased value our loft conversions offer.

Why You Need a Loft Extension
A lot of house owners develop the feeling that their once spacious property has become too tight and uncomfortable. The reasons vary, a house may start to feel tight after the increase of family members or even after hoarding many possessions over the years.
When one initially has these thought ideations, their mind immediately goes to investing in a bigger property, and this option can be very expensive. Here at Firtree Building Services in London, we have the perfect solution for such cases, and we are happy to offer you the best loft conversions you can find in all of London.
Investing in a loft conversion is a key to keeping your beloved house yours while obtaining more space for your living quarters. Our London loft conversion service offers you the chance to save money while adding more value to your property.

Our loft conversion company is ready to increase the area of any space inside your property whether bedrooms, bathrooms, playrooms, which may be needed for a growing family. With the help of our loft conversion company here in London, you can now even build a home office for yourself.
Some people have spare loft spaces inside their house, yet they choose to use them as storage rooms for items they do not use much. This comes up as wasteful of space, since this loft can be used as an extra room for so much more than just unused storage. A loft conversion adds an extra room or rooms for you to utilise with full freedom and with an abundance of options.
A loft conversion would be a very wise investment decision for you to make since it grants you extra space with less than what buying a new house would cost you. You can now invest in the same house you live in instead of spending thousands on moving expenses and fees. Your home will be a better place for you and your family to live in after a loft conversion construction process.
A loft conversion will cost you approximately £30,000 to £40,000, and will give you more rooms so you could upgrade from having a 2 or 3 bedroom home to having a 4 or 5 bedroom home. A loft conversion in London will increase the value of your home in case you ever decide on selling it to move out.
Investing in a loft conversion to increase the space of your home has another benefit which is that it does not require planning permission by any means. A planning permission takes time in most cases, and this can often delay your plan. So, you can save time by giving your current home a loft conversion and building new spaces in your home the way you like them, and with no time restrictions.

How Much Does a Loft Extension Cost?
A loft conversion can be a great decision for many reasons in the case that you are a person who does not use their loft space in any way. Other than adding value to your house, a loft conversion can also provide you with extra space for you to build your new rooms the way you prefer.
A loft conversion can add space to your house to an extent where you can have two additional bedrooms and a separate shower room. Our loft conversion experts here in London shall always work on a conversion that suits the space and size of your loft.

Available Loft Extension Types
When you are fully convinced that a loft conversion is what you need for your property, you will be left with figuring out which loft conversion would suit your property best. Our loft conversion company in London will help you make up your minds in such situations. You will pick what is suitable for you depending on specific factors such as the type of roof you have, your budget, and what should be placed in the new space.
There are three types of loft conversions and they are:
- Internal Loft Conversions
- Roof Off Loft Conversions
- Dormer Loft Conversions
Internal Loft Conversions
Internal loft conversions are great for the reason that they are the simplest and the cheapest choice due to the fact that they require little work to be fully done. When a loft space is already present, everything becomes easier. Internal loft conversions will only require small alterations and additions such as windows, stronger flooring, and insulation.
Dormer Loft Conversions
What a dormer loft conversion requires is adding dormer windows to the loft space, and this will increase the height of the room. They are usually added only to the back of the property, yet they can be added to the front or the side of the property if you get a planning permission.
Some kinds of dormer loft conversions you can invest in are:
- Single Dormer
- L-Shape dormer
- Full Width Dormer
- Hip to Gable
- Side Dormer
A Single dormer conversion would be a great idea if your roof is sloped. The bad thing is that it is different from the standard conversion and it takes way more time to build because of the structural changes needed within the conversion.
A dormer loft conversion is basically an extension that takes place starting with the slope of the roof. The most known type of conversion is the flat-roof dormer. It is great since it suits any house that has a sloping roof. Although mansard or hip-to-gable conversions are way more expensive than dormer conversions, a single dormer conversion adds a lot of extra floor space and headroom.
Building a full-width dormer for a loft conversion will help increase the space and transform any loft space into something completely different from the previous one.
A full-width dormer is similar to a mini-mansard conversion, as it basically has a flat roof that provides it with a lot of extra headspace. You can also add things that might be suitable for you such as Juliet balconies facing your back garden. Although they are great and they suit plenty of types of properties, yet, they are more expensive and need more time to build than other loft conversion types.
When you extend a dormer to the full width of the roof you already have, it will give you a chance to build a way larger room. What our loft conversion company in London works on is providing you with a dramatic space by building a sloping ceiling at the front, and a squared off full height ceiling at the rear, while keeping your home outer frontal appearance unchanged.
An L-shaped dormer is exactly as the name implies: two dormers being connected to each other. One is built over the main segment of the roof, while the other is built over the rear part, forming an L shape. Of course, adding two dormers will offer a significant amount of extra space. Even better, if you happen to have a Victorian design, it will suit the property perfectly well. This type of dormer fits and suits specific properties such as Victorian designs, and it offers a lot of extra space.
Of course, when an L-shaped conversion takes place, an L-shaped window must be involved and built. What a dormer is known for is being a roof window extending from the beginning of the slope of a roof vertically. When two dormers form a connection into a corner, L-shaped loft conversions take place. The main roof is usually built at the end of one of the dormers, preferably the larger one.
At our loft conversion company in London, we mention the advantage of an L-shaped conversion, which is the wide space it can provide for your property. Everything will have more space, such as double rooms, separate landings, and even separate bathrooms. Everything will be bigger, as space and storage will be provided for your London property to make it wider and more comfortable for living.
Hip to Gable
What is great about a hip to gable is that it looks more natural compared to a dormer conversion, and that it is cheaper than extending outwards. However, it also has its negativities, and they are that it suits each house having a free sloping side roof only, and that it costs way more than a dormer conversion.
This type of loft conversion works through extending the “hip” of the roof, which is the sloped part at the side of your property. This creates a “gable” wall that is vertical, which gives us more internal loft space to work with.
Detached or semi-detached houses are the only types of property that are eligible for this type of loft conversion, as it necessitates the presence of a side roof that is free sloping. In the case that your property is fully detached, you can create a hip to gable loft conversion on both sides of the property, granting you even more space.
Roof Off Loft Conversions
This loft conversion type needs the whole roof to be removed and then restructured again with a new one. If the loft space in your headroom is lacking, this is the loft conversion you need. When investing in this loft conversion and having your new roofing structure built, the loft space you have will use the headroom to create more spaces in your house. The roof off loft conversion can be great in providing extra space for you in your house.
Difference Between a Loft Extension and a House Extension
What differentiates between a loft extension and a House extension is one main key difference. A house extension’s goal is to add and design a new room without messing with the other ones. Meanwhile, a loft conversion works with the surface area of the house to shift its design into something else.
For example, a house extension will provide you with a brand-new bedroom within the same design of the house you already have, while a loft conversion will transform the layout design of the house into something else to fit a new bedroom.
Advantages of Loft Extensions
