Planning

A loft conversion for a house is considered to be a permitted development. This means that planning permission is not always required. However, the conversion must adhere to certain limits and conditions depending on your house and local council.

All conversion projects are subject to Building Regulations by law. However, we not only meet these demands, but in many cases exceed them. This is due to our company’s quality policy: For a 100% end product in both safety and optical aspects, it is worth an extra hours work.

Regulations

  • A volume allowance of 50 cubic metres additional roof space for detached and semi-detached houses*
  • No extension beyond the plane of the existing roof slope of the principal elevation that fronts the highway
  • No extension to be higher than the highest part of the roof
  • Materials to be similar in appearance to the existing house
  • No verandas, balconies or raised platforms
  • Side-facing windows to be obscure-glazed; any opening to be 1.7m above the floor
  • Roof extensions not to be permitted development in designated areas**
  • Roof extensions, apart from hip to gable ones, to be set back, as far as practicable, at least 20cm from the original eaves

Property Value

Based on average house prices, an extra bathroom could potentially add 5% or £9,600 on to the value of a home in the UK, while increasing the floor area by 10% could add another £10,000, or 5%, on to its worth.
A home extension or loft conversion could also increase a property’s worth by about 20%. Meanwhile, adding a decent-sized extra bedroom has the potential to boost the value of a home by 11%, or £22,100.
