Loft Conversions

A loft conversion is a beautiful & great solution for those looking to add more space to their home. They can be the perfect solution if you need more space but do not want to lose any of your garden, and can be more affordable than a full home extension.

At SturdyBuild, we really are enthusiastic about loft conversions because they add a completely new dimension to a home. As a matter of fact, lofts are versatile and for a relatively small outlay can add up to 20% to the value of the property. Our expertly built loft conversions make fantastic extra living spaces and bedrooms, studies, and playrooms – there is no limit to the possible uses of a converted loft.

Types of Loft Conversion

Roof Lights

A loft converion with roof lights or velux windows is a very popular option. Additionally, it doesn’t require significant structural alterations, yet transforms a previously wasted space into a light and airy living accommodation.

Dormer Loft Conversion

A dormer loft conversion extends the loft space outwards and adds more headroom and usable floor space. The dormer windows will add real character to the property, and literally open new horizons as the windows offer new views of the surroundings around your home.

Hip to Gable Loft Conversion

Hip to gable loft conversions involve major structural changes to the roof with the advantage of fully maximising the available space within the loft. However, this type of loft conversion creates additional living space without compromise.

Yes, we will happily work with an architect of your choice. Alternatively, we can advise you on the type of loft conversion that we believe would be best for your property.
“Ed and his team completed a loft conversion with ensuite for us earlier this year. We were very pleased with the final result and it was delivered on time and on budget. Ed was on-site every day and the real added value was in his management of the entire project from drawings and planning through to build completion. Highly recommended.”
