Loft Conversion FAQ's

Some of the most frequently asked loft conversion questions. Still need answers? Call DNA Loft Conversions now on 01279 302364 or send an email by clicking here

Can any loft be converted into usable living or leisure space?
Provided there are no structural problems associated with the roof or house itself, DNA Loft Conversions can transform virtually any loft area into useable living space like bedrooms, studies, offices and bathrooms.


What type of loft conversion?
There are several types of loft conversions available Click Here For Different Loft Conversion Types

How long will the loft conversion take?

The time taken to complete a conversion is normally between 4 to 6 weeks depending on the requirements of the conversion.

Is there a lot of mess and disruption to the rest of the house?

All materials are lifted externally up into the roof space during the conversion. Work is then carried out by entering the conversion through the newly created windows rather than through the house. We then open the ceiling aperture for the new staircase from inside the loft – but make sure the first floor area is sheeted up. We also construct a tarpaulin catch net below the opening so that no mess or dust is created within the house itself.

How much will the loft conversion cost?

This can only be assessed following a full and detailed survey of the site. We will be pleased to arrange a visit and provide you with a "no obligation, fixed-price" quotation. Please see the contacts page for more details . The visit takes no longer than 1 hour and can be arranged at your convenience. Again there is absolutely no obligation. 

Do I need to get planning permission and building regulations approval?

You do not normally need planning permission for a loft conversion if the overall size of the house remains the same and the height has not increased. All conversions still have to be built to comply with stringent building standards, which are controlled and monitored by your local authority. Our Architect will provide you with a full set of plans for you to approve before any applications to your Local Authority are made.  We will deal with all applications on your behalf. Taking care of all the necessary paperwork is all included as part of our service to save any worry for our customers whilst still keeping you informed at every stage!

Can you provide references and could we see one of your completed conversions?
Of course, references available on request and we would be pleased to show you one of our recently completed loft conversions.

I have a water tank in my loft?

Usually any water tank's) are moved to an agreed area within the loft conversion so that they are not seen but are still accessible. Depending on the requirements of the loft conversion the tanks can be removed totally and the system is sometimes changed over to a fully pressurised system or to a combination type boiler. As each loft is very different we can advise on the best system for each conversion at the time.
