Loft Conversions Built By Local Professional Tradesmen And Women

Loft Conversions

Here at Scotland’s Premier Loft Conversions Specialist Build8, we carry out bespoke loft conversions.

We take care of your whole loft conversions process from design and build, architectural drawings, planning permission, structural calculations and construction and provide you with a dedicated Project Manager.

We make every loft or attic conversion as simple and stress-free as possible.

Thinking about selling up and moving house?

By adding a Loft conversion to your property, it could increase the value by as much as 25%.

Loft conversions are amongst the most popular home improvements available. They’re less expensive than moving house entirely. But still, allow you to increase your living space.

Build8 understands that there is nothing more personal than your own, private space and we strive to create somewhere that you enjoy spending your time in, relaxing, studying, socialising or simply just being.

Whether you live alone and would like an additional room either for guests or storage, or have a large family that seems to be falling over each other, Build8 can tailor a plan to suit your home and your budget.

Frequent Questions

How long does a loft conversion take?

The length of time for a loft conversion takes always depends on what you’re having done. How big is your existing loft? As well as the current layout of your home, and any finishing requirements.

We have converted lofts all over, On average a loft conversion is built in around 6-8 weeks.

However, depending on the size and spec of your loft conversion this timescale may vary a little.

How much does a loft conversion cost?

Most loft conversions will cost within a budget of £10K- £40K depending on the size and type you’re looking for.

It really does depend on what you have in mind and works required.

Loft conversions come in a range of different shapes and sizes and Loftstar has bags of experience fitting across Scotland.

How long does it take for plans to be approved?

Speaking through experience, in general, plans can take around 8 weeks to be approved.

This can vary between councils and sometimes, revisions are required if the approver wants to add or adjust anything.

This being the case, approval may take just a little longer, you will always be updated along the way.

How quickly can you start building?

We can begin building your dream loft conversion in as little as 2-4 weeks.
This time frame is the same, no matter where in Scotland your property is based e.g. North, South, East and West.

This timescale is an assumption that we have all your plans, structural designs and party wall notices already in place.

If you don’t have these in place, then work on 2 -3 months to get the plans drawn up.

We needed another room added to the attic space we had that included an en suite bathroom. We were very impressed with everyone that had taken part and would definitely call on Build8 for any future developments to our property.
