Loft Conversions


Does your home have a loft? If so, have you thought about your use of it? Is it just a store room for temporarily or even permanently used ‘junk’?

The loft is often our home’s largest area but we rarely give that a thought, so a loft conversion could enhance both our living space and the value of our home!

Some lofts are not convertible, although most are. If you are considering a loft conversion, Parkview will advise and discuss the various external styles, depending on roof shape as well as the internal design.

Mansard

This type of conversion is commonly found in Central London areas, where clients are obliged to follow the mansard trend of similar conversions, as it is often required by the local planning authority in these areas

Dormers

This option is where the existing loft space is of insufficient size for the proposed conversion. It creates additional headroom for the staircase and new room(s)

Rooflight/VeluxTM

This option is generally adequate for those contemplating the smaller loft conversion, generally for a single bedroom, study, etc, where adequate height is available within the existing loft space. Rooflights/VeluxTM can be installed with minimum disruption, as the shape of the existing roof does not need to be altered

Parkview carries out loft conversions by following one of the two procedures below:

  • We can provide a full design and build service, from drawing the initial plans using experienced architects and structural engineers to handling the planning application and building regulations application, and then carrying out the build stage from this point
  • We often find that the client already has the plans drawn up and planning permission has been granted. Parkview will then take over the project for the build stage and furthermore, is able to commence works at short notice due to the depth of resources of the company

If you would like to view the projects Parkview has undertaken or is currently undertaking please contact us on the telephone number below and we will arrange a site visit. Please click on the Site Visits link to find out more.

"It's hard to find a builder you can trust nowadays, so I was fortunate that Jack Koumis and his lads did my conversion. They worked to a high standard, were always courteous and never left me stranded by disappearing off-site like so many builders do!"
Tony Robinson
(Actor / TV Presenter)
Parkview undertook a very complex and difficult building project for me. The quality of the work and professionalism were second to none. Aside from the quality, what sets them apart from other building company’s was that they solved problems rather than created them, turned up when they said were going to and got the job done with efficiency and as little stress as possible. I have no hesitation in recommending them to new customers.
