Loft Conversion Process
Crown Development Services are with you every step of the way.
Our loft conversion process has been designed to keep you informed throughout the build, minimising stress. With most loft conversions taking around eight weeks to build, we offer an efficient and uncomplicated process.
Scaffolding Erection & Delivery of Materials
We will start by carefully erecting the scaffolding around your house, ensuring that you still have easy access to external doors. At this stage, we will also deliver all the necessary materials for the build, including steels, portaloos, and skips.
Floor Structure & Dormer Build
In the second week, we will work on the floor structure, installing new floor joists that rise above the existing ceiling joists. If your loft conversion type includes dormers, they will be constructed at this point.
1st Fix Electrical & Plumbing Works
The next stage is to complete the 1st fix electrical and plumbing works, installing all the necessary electrical cables and pipework for your loft conversion. This will later be hidden by plaster and finished in the 2nd fix.
Flooring & Staircase Installation
We will then install the flooring, placing floorboards to cover up all the pipes and wiring and provide a flat surface to walk on. We will also fit the staircase up to the loft, granting you access to your new loft room.
Plasterboard & Insulation
During Week 5, we will install the loft insulation, taking care to fill in all the gaps to reduce heat loss. At the same time, we will plasterboard the walls and ceiling to get them ready for plastering.
Plastering & 2nd Fix Electrics & Plumbing
After we have completed the plastering process, we will carry out the 2nd fix electrical and plumbing works. Any electrical appliances or fixtures will be connected and, if you have opted for a loft bathroom, the sink, toilet, etc. will be fitted.
Finish & Clean
At in the final stage of the project, we will make sure everything is finished and clean, ready for you to decorate. We will tie up all the loose ends and make sure that you are happy with your loft before handover.
Removal of Scaffolding
The following week, we’ll remove the scaffolding from around your house, allowing you to enjoy your new loft conversion in peace! By this time, your loft should be partly or fully furnished, and we may take a few pictures of it to share.
Why Our Customers Choose Us
Fantastic management of the project. The planning stage was painless and the build was very professional.
I believe the main build was completed in 5-6 weeks. Chris Spencer was efficient at managing the team and everything ran like clockwork, whilst communication was prompt and clear throughout and all second fixes were completed tidily. Throughout the project, a high level of attention to detail was maintained. I would strongly recommend Crown to prospective clients in the future, and especially Chris and his team.
We completed our loft conversion with Crown last year and we'd definitely recommend them!
From when we first met Tom, through to all the office team and contractors, we really appreciated how professional, friendly, honest and trustworthy they were. We love our new space they created and would definitely use them again and recommend them to friends and family.
Amazing! We were so happy with the service and quality of finish that was created with our loft conversion.
Chris was fantastic and made the whole process easy. The tradesmen that were provided were brilliant - we couldn't recommend Crown more highly.
I can't recommend Crown Developments enough. We have a fantastic new loft bedroom with library and bathroom; the finish is fantastic.
Our builders Leigh and Tom were an absolute pleasure to have on site - trustworthy and reliable. They were also really responsive when we needed to communicate out of hours and I knew when they were going to be here and what they were planning to do each day.
We've chosen Crown Development Services from a handful of companies and we're really glad we did.
From the moment the project started it was on schedule, and it's now been finished to a high standard and met our expectations. We have minimum experience with any sort of construction work, so it was great that we could fully lean on the whole team (Tom, Lina and especially the main project lead Leigh) with all our questions, ideas and concerns.
Tom and the team have been professional and responsive throughout our loft conversion journey.
From the first Zoom meeting with Tom we were sold on the family run business feeling, time taken to listen to what we wanted and professional advice. Nothing was too much trouble and we were kept up to date with each stage of the process. The build even finished early which was a big bonus. I would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting a loft conversion.
The team at Crown were great, from Tom coming out and giving us our quote to our builder John; even the scaffolders they used were great.
We are so pleased with the job they have done. The loft conversion is brilliant, our builder, John was amazing - his attention to detail was great. He really cared about his work and kept us up to date each step of the way. Would definitely recommend Crown Developments if you are looking for a loft conversion.
We have recently had our loft completed, and are so impressed with the work and space it has created.
From start to finish Chris and Calum were friendly helpful and answered any questions we had. We were told 12 weeks, but it was complete in 6, Chris works so fast - great guy. Behind the scenes Lina is great at getting things to site to avoid hold ups. Thank you Crown and in particular Chris and Calum.
We've just completed our loft conversion this summer.
We now have a new playroom and study. The girls have their new playroom! Thanks for Chris and Cullen's hard work.
Tom Wilson is very pleasant to deal with and never put us under any pressure.
He just gave us the best advice and information and left us to decide on the best course of action. He is very responsive and always on hand to answer questions when needed.
The team have been fantastic.
They were really friendly, always answering questions and doing their best to keep to schedule.
Very professional and detailed company.
Crown were a pleasure to work with and took a lot of stress away from the process. The team on site and in the office were all great communicators and extremely helpful.
