Attic Conversions

Attic Conversions

An attic or loft conversion is a great way of getting extra space in your home without having to move house, and at Scott Building Contracts we can do all the work for you. We’re a one-stop-shop incorporating all the trades needed to carry out this type of work: Electricians, joiners, plasterers – we will supply qualified and experienced professionals, and you only have to deal with us. We can even do the painting and lay the carpet, if you want us to. Everyone we work with has a passion for their trade and we can guarantee everything will be carried out to the highest possible quality.

We also provide clarity and peace of mind on the financial side, with a clear up-front quote based on the work we’ll be doing. We’ll also let you know when we can do the work and how long it’s likely to take to turn your loft into a a wonderful attic space for living or home working. Having your loft converted into living space can be a great investment and good value for money compared to an extension or moving to a bigger house, but everyone has their budget – that’s why at Scott Building Contracts we can be flexible and try to work around your needs: just get in touch and discuss your requirements with us.

All you need for us to get started are suitable designs and planning permission. Many people don’t realise that you need planning permission to convert a previously unused attic, but you do and you’ll need an architect to draw up suitable plans for approval, and for us to work from. This is also an opportunity to get the best out of your attic space: From our considerable experience carrying out conversions, we believe that excellent pre-construction planning is key to the success of a good project and aids the job to run smoothly. If you don’t already have one, we can introduce an architect and any other professionals that you need at the planning stage.
