Free Loft Conversion Quotation:
At a convenient time we’ll visit your home and conduct an initial survey, taking the overall dimensions of your loft space and ground / first floor. This allows us to determine the best position for your loft conversion’s staircase.
We will talk with you to thoroughly understand your requirements and what you want to achieve with your loft conversion, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions. This visit will take 30-40 minutes. Later you will receive a floor plan showing a proposed loft conversion design and itemised quotation via email, followed by a hard copy in the post. The loft conversion plan is subject to final measure (conducted when you book).
When You Book Your Loft Conversion:
Swansea Lofts will contact you to arrange our surveyor to view your property.
A full measure will be conducted, taking up to 2 hours depending on the size of your home and house type.
Plans will take up to 10 days to complete. A copy will be sent to you for approval of the loft conversion design before sending to building regulations and planning permission (if required).
5 days before work commences we hold a pre-start meeting at your home.
The purposes of this meeting are:
Organise material stage
Discuss working hours
Run through the build programme
Confirm the loft conversion design
Confirm additional extras if required
