Reduced Heating Costs

We can be on site creating your new space within a few weeks and it takes less than one week for us to complete. Furthermore, once installed our insulation system also reduces heating costs by as much as 50%. And we deliver all of this for a fraction of the cost of a conventional loft conversion.

Peace of Mind

To give you complete peace of mind we have brought together a team of construction industry specialists with a wealth of experience and expertise in the UK domestic market. This means we can offer the perfect solution to your space issues regardless of the age or condition of your property. Where your ambitions for your home grow we can also work with you to develop more bespoke proposals to supplement or enhance the loft refurbishment package.

Typical UK Loft Space

Many people want to maximise the space they have and often look to their loft to provide it. Regulations about headroom and insulation, however, mean many of these proposals do not meet the stringent requirements of planning law. The result is that many of these spaces remain unused and undeveloped.

The image below shows a typical UK loft space. Poor, degraded mineral wool insulation is placed between and over joists.

This insulation not only prevents the space being floored, and therefore the creation of usable space, it also significantly reduces the energy efficiency of the home. By allowing heat to escape from the body of the building into the cold vented loft space, the insulation allows heat to transfer to the outside air and dramatically increases heating and energy costs.

The Process

Our loft refurbishment package is a simple and efficient solution for creating additional space within your home.

We follow a tried and tested process and because we understand how daunting it can be we discuss and agree all aspects with you from the start, ensuring no hidden costs or nasty surprises.

The solution begins with a full survey of your home by one of our energy surveyors. They’ll fully explain our approach to you and discuss the various options for achieving the space you want. Once this is complete our architectural team will work with you to ensure we create the ideal solution to your space issues.

Because of the unique nature of our approach, no planning or approvals are required. We can be on site and installing within weeks. It takes less than one week to complete.

As part of this offer, we’ll also provide you with a full package of technical specifications and certifications to provide the necessary reassurances should you choose to sell your home in the future.
