L-Shaped Lofts in Egham, Twickenham & Weybridge

Whatever the size and shape of your house and loft, if there’s the potential for a quality loft conversion, you can be sure that the team at Highline Design & Build has the skills and experience to be able to do it for you.

An L-shaped loft is created when two dormers are built and joined together, with one dormer constructed onto the main roof and the other onto the roof of the house’s rear projection (known as the ‘outrigger’). This creative solution not only produces a room with plenty of space, but it also enjoys the benefit of being dual aspect, thus allowing in plenty of natural light.

L Shaped Loft Conversion

The way an L-shaped loft conversion is constructed means that it requires a particular style of property, usually two-storey Victorian or Edwardian homes – including mid-terrace houses – with an existing two-storey rear wing. And it isn’t just a great way of adding much more space to your home, it can also add significant value should you choose to sell up in the future.

Call Highline Design & Build today to ask for a free home visit and we can assess whether your home would be suitable for this kind of conversion. We carry out all kinds of loft conversions for homes in Egham, Twickenham, Weybridge and beyond.

How long will my project take?

Each project is different and the size of the build will determine the time it will take to complete; however, an average rear extension/loft conversion will take approximately six weeks from start to finish.

Will I be able to live in my property while the work goes on?

Yes, you will be able to live in the property. If this is the case, we will attempt to leave the breaking through into the house until as late as possible in the project.

Will someone be on site every day?

Yes, we will have someone on site every day. However, the caveat to this is if we are waiting on drying times or materials. That being said, we will endeavour to have a team member/team members present as much as possible to ensure the project is completed in a timely manner.

Will an extension add value to my property?

Absolutely, it is becoming more and more popular to add space to your existing property instead of the hassle and fees involved with moving. Adding additional square meterage can add up to 10-20% onto the market value.

Can you help with plans/designs?

Of course, we can offer suggestions and ideas, and show you previous projects. We can also arrange for you to visit a previous project if required. We have built relationships with trusted architects and can introduce you to our preferred contacts in order to obtain your drawings.

How long does it take to get planning permission?

It will depend upon whether you are applying for permitted planning or full planning permission. Different councils work to different timescales; however, as a guide from submission of plans it will take approximately 8-12 weeks.
