When it comes to making home improvements, it is always worth spending time researching and planning beforehand. After all, you want to make sure that the money you’re investing in the project will be worthwhile. Make the wrong choice, and it could be a mistake that you have to live with for a very long time. With something like painting and decorating, for example, you may be able to repaint walls or buy different furnishings.
However, when it comes to projects like home extensions and loft conversions, the results are far more permanent.
As a loft conversion company specialising in both extensions and attic conversions around Dulwich, Spectacular Lofts Ltd understands how important it is to really think about your needs and budget. Even if this is all you have figured out, our extension and loft specialists are on hand to talk you through everything else.
If you are struggling to decide between extending your property or converting the loft space, this page aims to guide you towards making an informed decision.
However, if you live in Dulwich and need the advice of professionals with over 200 years of combined experience in the construction industry, feel free to contact us.
Just like some home extensions, most loft conversions do not require planning permission, as they fall under Permitted Development. There are, however, certain conditions. The loft specialists at our loft conversion company know these conditions inside and out. We can apply for planning permission on your behalf, if necessary
Perfect for increasing living space without eating into the garden or patio of your Dulwich home
Attic conversions are often cheaper than extension projects
Loft conversions usually have a more rapid completion time
Our loft conversion company carries out much of the work from the outside, for minimal disruption to you and your family
Can add around 20% to the value of your property in Dulwich
As extension and loft specialists, we appreciate that attic conversions often result in awkward angles and sloping ceilings. With an extension, however, you don’t have to worry about this
Extending your Dulwich property grants you more options than loft conversions. For one thing, you can build an entirely new space without the limitation of pre-built dimensions
Certain extension projects fall under Permitted Development. As experts in the construction industry, the personnel at our loft conversion company understand the restrictions surrounding home extensions, without the need for planning permission
With a house extension, you can build one, two or multiple storeys to suit your needs. This provides much more additional space for Dulwich homeowners than attic conversions
With a single-storey addition from our extension and loft specialists, you can introduce open-plan living areas. This completely transforms cramped homes with awkward layouts
A single-storey extension adds at least 10% to your property’s value
There are many benefits to both loft conversions and property extensions. However, if you are looking to add value to your home, always keep in mind the ceiling price of other properties in your area. Adding a dormer or hip to gable loft conversion, to create an extra en suite bedroom, may be a better option than building a mega home with a multi-storey extension.
Whichever way you choose to extend the footprint of your property, Spectacular Lofts Ltd is the only company you need.
