No, although we have contacts with mortgage advisors if required.
Each conversion is individual to your property and requirements; the cost will vary accordingly. Econoloft has the experience of completing literally thousands of conversions. This experience allows us to accurately cost your conversion. Our surveyor will be able to quote for the work you require.
You will receive a comprehensive quote which itemises what your individual loft conversion includes, but as a general rule a full conversion quote will include:
• Technical survey
• Design and full working drawings complying to building regulations
• Structural calculations
• Planning permission if necessary
• All submissions to local authorities
• Full structure inc. floor, stairs, windows, supports, walls
• Skirting, doors, architraves etc.
• Electrics and plumbing as required
• Plaster finish and ready to decorate
Things that may hike up the price could be whether or not you need to move the boiler and of course the spec you want. For example, in period homes customers will want specialist joiners to replicate their existing hand carved spindles and newels in the new staircase. Or, customers may ask for a Juliet balcony instead of a Standard UPVC window, chimney removal or Party Wall agreements can add to the costs.
Econoloft are also able to offer a shell conversion to our clients, therefore we are able to do as much or as little of the work as you require.
