A conversion allows you to gain sought-after additional space without the disruption of moving. We can design a custom beautiful loft space tailored to your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is my loft suitable for a conversion?

Most lofts can be converted, but some projects present complex challenges. We’ll thoroughly survey your dimensions, roof style, angles, height and access to fully assess your loft’s potential.

Velux roof window conversions tend to be more straightforward, while popular dormer extensions allow more head height. Typically you’ll need at least 2.2m room height. We’ll advise on the most suitable design options to maximise your available loft space.

What permissions will I need for my loft conversion?

Many residential loft conversions can proceed without full planning permission if meeting certain criteria. However, it’s advisable to check with your local council first, as special consent is required in some cases. Our experts will provide guidance on any specific permissions required for your property and plans. We can assist with the permissions process to ensure it goes as smoothly as possible.

How long will my loft conversion take?

Timescales vary considerably depending on the complexity of your plans. As a guide, simple Velux or smaller dormer lofts often take 6-8 weeks. More intricate structural changes like hip-to-gable extensions typically take longer if full planning permission is required.

We’ll discuss expected timeframes and keep you updated on progress milestones throughout your project, ensuring your conversion stays on track with minimal disruption. Let us know if you have any other questions! We’re happy to advise on all aspects.

David BCustomer Brighton

Back in 2021 Black Olive took over the management of a complicated building project. It wasn't an easy job and the project manager had to deal with some significant but unforseen issues.
Even several months after completion I was able to contact them for follow-up and the manager dealt with any problems that arose both during and after the work.

VictorCustomer Brighton

Black Olive is particularly effective at client liaison, and I have always found that their projects start and finish on time with regular updates on progress in-between.
Black Olive team has a particular eye for detail, takes care to fully understand the requirements, uses strong initiative to overcome any unforseen difficulties in a variety of creative ways and manages internal and external labour extremely effectively.
