Loft Conversions By Dulwich Lofts

Each loft conversion undertaken by us is individually prepared and designed by our in house Architect and Structural Engineer to accommodate the specific needs of each client.

Your first contact with us will be to meet with our Architect to discuss your initial requirements and our solutions.

Our lofts are completed to plaster finish ready for you to paint or we can decorate for you!

Building Regulations

All work will be carried out in accordance with Building Regulations.  Each stage of the construction is signed off by the relevant Local Authority Building Control officer.  This ensures the highest level of workmanship is maintained throughout the duration of your loft conversion.

Scaffolding

We arrange for scaffolding, crane hire and skips outside of your home before any work is carried out on your property.  All access to the loft space for fitters and materials will be made using the scaffolding to minimise disruption to you and your family.

Flooring

The new timber and steel structural floor will be independent of existing joints to help eliminate vibration noise on the ceiling below.  The moisture resistant tongue and groove chipboard attached to the new floor prevents movement and is quieter than conventional floor boards!

Dormer Windows

Several types are available, with the most popular being a full box end dormer. Installation involves taking off the back slope of the roof and squaring it.  The new walls and roof which will form the dormer are built off the existing load bearing walls in timber studwork.

Staircase Specialists

Each staircase is individually designed to ensure that it looks like it has always been there as we match in with your existing staircase.  Whether your staircase is modern or traditional, Dulwich Lofts believe that it is the key to any successful loft conversion.

Windows/Roof Lights

Whether you choose traditional sash or modern UPVC, all units comply with current U-Value requirements of the Building Regulations.

Planning Regulations permitting, each habitable room (including bath or shower rooms) requires an escape window/roof light to be installed.
