How Much Does a Loft Conversion Cost?

If you’re considering a loft conversion but want to make sure it’s affordable, this guide is for you.

On average, a loft conversion costs between £55,000 to £60,000 in the UK. However, this price does vary. It could cost anything from £50,000 up to £100,000, depending on how big the project is and what is involved.

Usually lasting 8 weeks from start to finish, a loft conversion project is a huge undertaking and therefore can be expensive. Some of the factors affecting loft conversion cost include: the size of your loft, your roof height & structure, type of loft conversion (e.g. velux, dormer, hip to gable), and type of house (e.g. detached, semi-detached, terraced, bungalow).

In general, the larger the loft conversion, the higher the cost. If you want a clear idea of how much your loft conversion will cost, contact Crown Development Services for a free, no-obligation quote.

What am I paying for?

When you break it down, a lot goes into a loft conversion. You are not only paying for an experienced team to manage the project and complete the work, but also: Scaffolding, Building Materials, Joinery, Electrics & Plumbing (1st & 2nd fix), Flooring & Staircase Installation, and Plasterboard & Insulation.

On top of this, you’ll be paying for the decoration of your new loft space. This is one of the places where you can make your loft conversion more affordable; doing some of the decorating and choosing furniture yourself will help you save money.

How do I pay for a loft conversion?

If you have the money saved up, you have the flexibility to pay in a lump sum. If not, there are many options you can consider which will make a loft conversion affordable for you. For example, you could take out a loan, re-mortgage your house, or spread the cost with a credit scheme.
