Loft Conversion Cost Calculator
Everyone seems to be looking for cost calculators these days and loft conversions are no
exception. Costing a lost conversion without the aid of a pre-prepared and approved set of design drawings and
specifications can be very hard for anyone to provide a firm price cost for the loft conversion simply due to not
knowing what level of works are required.
Some loft conversion designers or architects including some builders can provide an estimated cost of the loft
conversion works simply by looking at the existing property and assessing what level of works will be required.
They will also need to assess the homeowners wish list for what level of fit out they require for the loft
conversion and whether or not dormer windows will be required in preference to the cheaper cost roof lights from
Velux or Fakro for example.
Other factors that will affect a loft conversion cost will be the number of loft rooms required and whether any
of the new bedrooms will include for a new bathroom, shower room or dressing areas. Other ‘knock on works’ could
include structural upgrading and internal remodelling.
