Looking for a loft conversion company in Hampstead?

London Contractors specialises in extending & converting loft spaces in Hampstead area.

From modern apartment complexes to traditional, family-sized spaces, we manage variety of projects involving one unit and single-familly dwellings.

There are 4 major types of loft extensions / conversions:

  • Velux – very popular and cost effective
  • Dormer – makes rooms that have limited space more feasible
  • Mansard – lets you maximise amount of space in your loft conversion
  • Hip to Gable – involves making major alterations to the roof where there isn`t enough internal volume

You don't need permission for every loft conversion and the rules were relaxed back in 2008, but it is still safest to check before starting work.

You will certainly need consent if:

  • You live in a listed building or in a conservation area.
  • If the house has already been extended to the maximum volume within permitted development rights.
  • If any part of the extension will be higher than the original roof or overlooks neighbours.

Hampstead Lofts by London Contractors - quality attic and loft extensions, design and home insulation services.

Building Regulations

If the conversion is to be used regularly as a "habitable space", your design must comply with building regulations on issues such as energy efficiency, fire safety, ventilation, lighting and insulation.

This permission is obtained separately from planning consent. Plans have to be approved by your local authority`s Building Control Officer, which can take 2 months.

Taking a step further within the scope of loft-type architectural constructions, a new trend is apparent: the rehabilitation of whole buildings that house multiple loft-type apartments and also new constructions with this end in mind.

Housing repairs - Hampstead Council

When you think of a loft, you think: expansive spaces, austere materials, abundant natural light, central urban location. Arising halfway through the 19th century, these constructions developed as the industrial zones were moved to the outskirts of the city, leaving these buildings located at the heart of the urban area in disuse.
