An overview of our part loft conversion service
This page is an introduction to the work we carry out when undertaking a part loft conversion. This a service we offer to prospective clients who feel they are competent to complete their conversion either by doing the work themselves or by employing the finishing trades, i.e., plasterer, electrician, finishing joiner. On these projects, we are not requested to finish the conversion by the client and projects we always complete all structural work to the highest standards, and with post-structural modifications in mind, this ensures a smooth handover to other parties involved in the finishing of the conversion.
Our services are flexible, and we always strive to accommodate specific customer requirements when carrying out a structural only conversion. Furthermore, we’re always happy to share details of the products we use and other information that could help our part loft conversion clients to complete their projects.

With a part conversion, you will need to fit insulation, plasterboards, complete the plastering, the electrics, and plumbing, second fix joinery including doors and skirting boards.
This option is not suited to everyone, but there are savings of several thousands of pounds if you complete or subcontract the finishing of the conversion yourselves and there is something satisfying about being in complete control of your own project.
The final building regulations certificate cannot be issued until the loft conversion is completed in its entirety. However, we will organise an inspection upon completion of structural works.
All work completed by us will be to building regulations and in adherence to all planning requirements.
Customers completing part loft conversions should make themselves aware of the building regulations covering domestic electrical installations (Part P). This amendment requires that all electrical work should be carried out by a registered electrician and requires that a certificate be issued to satisfy building regulations. Failure to comply with this will prevent building regulations approval.
To overcome this you can use our electricians if necessary who are qualified to issue the correct certification.
Each conversion would be priced competitively, and you are not under any obligation to use our electricians.
For structural only conversions, there is payment request of 1200.00 once the plans and calculations are complete and then one final payment when the structural works are complete, and all works stated in a pre-agreed contract had been passed by building control.
