The well-developed towns of Surrey will be well aware of rising house prices in recent years. Homeowners in Croydon, Reigate, Guildford, Reigate and Woking will have seen the value of property triple in just a generation.

Some will have added in an extension at the rear or in the front but not too many have considered to best use of that empty space in the loft. There is living space in the loft that is simply not being put to good use.

If you look up into most lofts these days you will see a few old suitcases, a water tank and some fibre glass sheeting to keep the home insulated – not to mention the odd spider. In an area of the UK where space is so valuable, it makes sense to convert your loft in Surrey to something liveable and more worthy of your expensive property.

What can you actually do with all that space? Why not create a new bedroom, a master bed chamber with a small bathroom attached. You could build a study where you can manage an online business working from home or you could even just use it as a guest room or a place to hire out to a lodger.

Where Does One Start in Getting a Loft Converted in Surrey?

The first thing is to call in the surveyors. A loft conversion company in Surrey can do this by recommending a surveying business or providing its own team to measure up, create interior design ideas and listen to what the customer wants and determine whether or not it is practical to go ahead and construct.

Plans are then passed on to the architects who will be informed of access to electrical points, rewiring needs, reconstruction ideas and then a working plan is put in place.

Technical Drawings Are Not Set in Stone

Although an architect may recommend otherwise, there are always times when you can chop and change something to make it slightly different to the original plans. Remember, this is your home, your loft and you are the one that is going to be living in it, going forward.

The final stage of a loft conversion in Surrey is the build. Skilled and experienced teams of insulation teams, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, roofers and brick workers will be on and off site for a period of up to six months.
