Can I convert my loft? What will I need to check?

 

It is possible to upgrade any loft space into a useable clean storage area. However to convert your loft into a real extension to your home. That could be a bedroom, playroom, or and office (with or without plumbing for a bathroom/shower room) there are many regulations set out by all the local building control departments, that we as a professional loft conversion company must know.

 

You can be assured that dealing with B.L.L. we will make sure that all of these regulations, guidelines and requirements are met. We deal with all the local authority building and planning departments.
