One of the most asked questions is how long it takes – realistically around six weeks, however this will vary on the size of the conversion. It goes without saying that you’ll need to empty your loft, especially any cupboards or storage areas. We can’t start work until the area is clear. You’ll also need to ensure that there is sufficient access to the loft too so that the loft company can move their equipment into the room.


You’ll be glad hear that you won’t need to move out during the build period; most of our projects are carried out while the owners are living in the property. A good loft conversion company will ensure that there is minimal disruption to the owners. You’ll also be reassured to hear that basic amenities should remain switched on, unless you are notified by your builder otherwise. For example, if electricity and/or water needs to be disconnected, you should be informed.

Without a doubt, a loft conversion is an extensive project; affecting your whole household, so it’s vital that you are prepared. Make sure every person that lives in the property is aware of the upcoming build. It’s recommended you discuss with your loft conversion company what you are expecting from the build. Central Lofts & Extensions pride themselves on delivering superior customer care; ensuring every customer is satisfied. Having a Project Manager is vital; they’ll be able to constantly keep you updated on every aspect of your build.
