Loft Conversion Stages 1

The first stage of loft conversion is for us to draw up a contract so you know exactly what you will be getting for your money which will prevent any confusion later in the build. Only when you are happy with the contract will we proceed with your loft conversion.

Loft Conversion Stage 2

We will have our architect contact you to arrange a convenient time to have your loft survey done. Then we'll have the plans for your loft conversion drawn up.

Once you are happy with the design of your loft conversion we will require the 1st payment, of 5% of the total amount quoted in the contract.

Loft Conversion Stage 3

One week before commencement of your loft conversion project we will measure all the beams on site and have them ready start of the build.

The scaffold will be erected and all materials will be ordered ready for the project to start.

We will then require a 10% deposit on the commencement date.

Loft Conversion Stage 4

The next payment of 20% will be due on structural completion of the loft conversion. This is when all the structural beams have been fitted and have been passed by your local building control officer.

Loft Conversion Stage 5

The next stage of your project will be the insulation. We use only tested and proven standards that are required by your local building control officer. Once the control officer has passed the insulation stage of the loft conversion, we would require a payment of 20% of the full amount quoted.

Loft Conversion Stage 6

Now your loft conversion project is ready for plasterboard.

All the areas of your new build will need plasterboard for the plasterer to finish with set plaster at the same as this we will be erecting your internal walls, this is what we call the pre plaster payment. The pre plaster payment is 20% of the total quote.

Loft Conversion Stage 7

Now your loft are is ready for plastering just before the plasters come in to plaster we have the stairs fitted, this is also the day that we enter your property as all the rest of the work is done from outside so as there is no disruption to your property.

This payment is called the pre stairs payment which is normally collected the same time as the pre plaster payment and also 10% of the total quoted price.

Loft Conversion Stage 8

Now your loft conversion has been plastered and your stairs have been fitted we move on to the finishing touches like the new doors, skirting and architraves handrails spindles and general making good all the alterations.

All the lights / bathroom suite fittings etc will all be completed and your loft will be ready for paint. At this stage we will require another 10% of the total quote price.

Loft Conversion Stage 9

The final payment of 5% will be required once your project has had the final inspection form building control and they have checked the fire doors (if required) and smoke detection.

Me have made the payment plane this way purely for you so you know that you are getting the quality and workmanship you deserve for your money,

As no payments are passed until each stage has been passed by your building officer.
