What are the benefits of a loft conversion?

Loft conversions have grown increasingly popular across Shoreham in recent years as homeowners seek affordable ways to maximise unused loft space and add value to their properties. Transforming your loft into a functional, contemporary living area offers a wide range of lifestyle and property benefits, including:

✓ Valuable extra living space

A loft conversion allows you to gain sought-after additional living space without the upheaval of moving home. We can design a custom loft tailored to your lifestyle needs – add an extra bedroom, peaceful home office, spacious bathroom, recreational hobby zone or a flexible entertaining area.

✓ Enhanced energy efficiency

Around 25% of property heat loss occurs through poorly insulated lofts. Converting your loft provides the ideal opportunity to significantly improve efficiency. We’ll ensure your new space has optimal insulation, reducing your carbon footprint and slashing expensive energy bills.

✓ Make the most of spectacular views

Shoreham’s enviable seaside location offers panoramic coastal views. Installing well-positioned roof windows during your conversion allows you to fully capitalise on the area’s stunning vistas. We’ll design contemporary, airy living zones flooded with natural light and incredible sea views.

✓ Boost your property’s value

Industry data indicates professionally designed and constructed loft conversions can increase property value by up to 20%. This added value makes converting your underutilised loft a smart investment in your home’s future appeal and worth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is my loft suitable for conversion?

The majority of loft spaces can be converted, but some projects present more complex challenges than others. We’ll carry out a thorough survey of your available 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 need room heights of around 2.2m minimum. We’ll advise on the most suitable design options for your loft conversion.

What permissions will I need for my loft conversion?

Many residential loft conversions can proceed without full planning permission, if they meet certain criteria. However, it’s best to check requirements with your local council, as special consent is needed for Conservation Areas, Listed Buildings etc. Our experts will provide guidance on any permissions specifically needed for your Shoreham property and plans. We can help ensure the permissions process goes smoothly.

How long will my loft conversion take?

Conversion timescales vary considerably depending on the complexity of your plans. As a general guide, simple Velux or smaller dormer lofts can often be completed within 6 to 8 weeks. More intricate structural changes like hip-to-gable extensions or large mansard roofs typically take longer, especially if full planning permission is required. We’ll survey your loft space and discuss expected timelines for your exact project. We can then keep you closely updated on progress to ensure your conversion stays on track.

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.
