If you’re looking for adding value to your home, or require a bit of extra space, a garage or loft conversion could be exactly what you need. According to the latest studies, adding a loft conversion will increase the value of your property by approximately 10% and you get the added satisfaction of seeing that unused space turned into a vibrant, new living area. Most homes have a suitable roof space for conversion, but if you’re unsure, we recommend speaking to a structural engineer or professional builder.
On average, you can expect to pay around £15,000 – £20,000 for a basic loft conversion, but the price will vary depending on the size and complexity of the job, materials, and the expected duration of works. It’s important to allow for additional costs, as there may some unexpected issues when you start peeling back the layers before starting the works. We recommend speaking to a loft conversion specialist as they can discuss your ideas and offer advice on prices, design concepts and choice of materials.
