How much will it cost?
Each conversion is different and we are happy to quote for you even before you have any plans designed or in place. You should consider that in addition to our quote you will have to budget for the plans, building regulations and bathroom suites and the decoration of your new living space.
How do I know if my property is suitable for a conversion?
You can visit our page on permissions and regulations for further information and we can advise when we come and visit you to see if you can convert your loft space.
Do Brightview Lofts do the design plans?
Brightview Lofts work closely with 2 local Architects. If you use one of our nominated architects for the conversion we will offer a £150 discount from the plan fee they charge.
Can I see a completed conversion or work in progress?
Yes. It should be possible to show you a completed conversion from Brightview Lofts or visit a site nearing completion dependent on individual homeowner’s permission.
What about planning submissions or building regulations?
The design service provided can include the council submissions and paperwork involved in order for your conversion to be passed off on completion of the work. Brightview Lofts also instruct ACT Surveyors for the building control inspections if no planning application is required.
Do we need a new boiler fitted?
If you already have a combination boiler then you probably wont need to change your boiler. If you have a conventional boiler system with a water tank in the loft then it might make sense to replace your boiler system to accommodate the space required in the new loft.
When could you start the conversion?
This will depend on our current commitments and we can advise this on our initial visit. As it will take time to draw the plans and get the council regulations agreement to commence this will generally allow some time to book in a definate start date for you.
