Free Initial Consultation

We will come to see you, discuss your requirements, and evaluate your project. We'll chat about what you would like, right down to the smallest details.
We'll go away and come back to you with a proposal and a price for your loft conversion.

Contract Draw-up 

The first stage of loft conversion is to draw up a contract so you know exactly what you will be getting for your money. Which will prevent any confusions throughout the building process. Only when you are happy with the contract, will we proceed with your loft conversion.

Loft Surveying

We will have our architect contact you to arrange a time for the loft survey. Then, will have the loft conversion plans drawn up.
Once you are happy with the design we will require the 1st payment, of 5% of the total amount quoted in the contract.

Project Scaffolding

One week before the commencement of your loft conversion project, we will measure all the beams on site and have them ready to start the building process. The scaffold will be erected and all materials will be ordered. We will then require a 10% deposit on the commencement date.

Structural Completion

The next payment of 20% will be due on the structural completion of the loft conversion. This is when all the structural beams have been fitted and have been passed by your local building control officer.


The next stage of your project will be the insulation. We use only tested and proven standards that are required by your local building control officer. Once the control officer has passed the insulation stage of the loft conversion, we will require a payment of 20% of the full amount quoted.

Plasterboard Installation 

All the areas of your new build will need plasterboard, for the plasterer to finish with set plaster. At the same time we will be erecting your internal walls, this is what we call the pre-plaster payment. The pre-plaster payment is 20% of the total quote.


Now your loft is ready for plastering. This is also the day that we enter your property, as all the rest of the work is done from outside. So as there is no disruption to your property.
This is time for the pre stairs payment, which is normally collected the same time as the pre plaster payment and also 10% of the total quoted price.

Finishing Touches

Now your loft conversion has been plastered and your stairs have been fitted. We move on to the finishing touches like the new doors, skirting and architraves handrails spindles and general making good all the alterations.
All the lights / bathroom suite fittings etc, will all be completed and your loft will be ready for paint. At this stage we will require another 10% of the total quote price.


Final Inspection

The final payment of 5% will be required, once your project has had the final inspection form building control. And they have checked the fire doors (if required) and smoke detection.
