In a crowded urban environment, building a large lateral extension to a property can sometimes be impractical or unlikely to get planning permission. But a loft conversion – provided it does not jar with the surrounding buildings – is another matter. As a company, Loft Conversion Newcastle has noticed a large increase in loft conversions from homeowners since there is a significant amount of property value hidden within their lofts.
Loft Conversions Newcastle is often asked how much value a loft conversion would add in a Newcastle home. Several studies have been conducted to answer the question “does a loft conversion add value?”. According to Nationwide, a loft conversion incorporating a double bedroom and bathroom can add around 20% to the value of a three-bedroom, one-bathroom house. With the average UK house price standing at £231,185 in January 2020, this represents an average increase in value of more than £46,000.
The average value of a house in Newcastle is just under £250,000. That means a loft conversion in Newcastle would add roughly £50,000 to a home. That is a significant increase for a relatively short-term project. Especially when you consider how many different forms of loft conversions there are. Some can be significant such as mansard loft conversions, but that just means a significant increase in property value. If you are looking to increase your property value through a loft conversion, then contact our Loft Conversions Newcastle team today!
What many people do not realise often is that there is a whole space at the top of your home which is just another room waiting for you to convert into something useful! Why have whole huge spaces in your home as a storage space when you could create it into something more useful such as a new spare bedroom, improving the value of your home dramatically while also creating more space for your home to live in?
The room can be outfitted into a modern space of chrome, light and open space for a relaxation area? Or even a dark and comfortable room with leather furniture to turn into a home cinema or home theatre? You could even turn it into a comfortable, cosy library or reading area or turn it into a study room! Anything that you would like, we can do for you as the best Newcastle loft conversion company!
Loft conversions are not usually cheap. Mainly because of the amount of work and materials that go into turning your storage space into a useable room to your designs. But it also increases the value to your home by thousands. If you are a welcoming person, you could even rent out the loft as a spare bedroom and make monthly income from it while increasing your home’s value!

Of course, it is possible to do a loft conversion yourself, but it is strongly advised against. A loft conversion is a seriously intricate, time consuming and dangerous job which can cost even more than for someone to do it for you if you make a mistake or require planning permissions you were previously unaware about. If you were to decide to do it yourself however, then these are a few steps that you would have to take:
Check to make sure that your home is able to take the extra weight which comes with a conversion. It would be best to use the services of a surveyor to check the foundations of your home to ensure they are fundamentally strong enough for the extra weight. They will then need to be underpinned. This alone will double your budget before you have begun. When we work on a property, we ensure to use the most weight-efficient materials to ensure that this is not an issue for you. You should next check the head height of your roof. If you would like to convert the loft without considering planning permissions, then you will have to fit your design within your current roof space. If you are unable to execute your ideas or do not come from an architectural or design background, you are better off hiring an interior designer or architect to do so.
You will need to have your loft conversion approved with building regulations despite if you need planning permission or not for your roof. Full design plans will be needed to have it approved also. If you live in a semi-detached or terraced property, then you will need to make an agreement with your neighbours that you share the wall with to inform them of the upcoming work that will take place. This is something we will ordinarily do for you. Your roofing structure may have to change to support the needs of your conversion. This can be done in a variety of ways and usually comes down to the roof and the room you wish to have, so you will need to find out the best way to support your roof which can also open as much space as possible. This is something that we can do for you when reviewing the roof as we have years of experience doing these ourselves, meaning we would know if you need ashlering or new floor joints. We provide the best loft conversions Newcastle offer, making us the ideal Newcastle loft conversion company.
The other things to keep in mind are Insulation, Storage, Windows, Loft Stairs and Fire Safety. These are all things that must be considered when you are designing your new room. Since you will need materials that are less flammable than most, you must consider safer materials. You will also need to keep in mind that the stairwell may be narrow and designed to take as little space from the room as possible. You will also have to insulate the space as the regular insulation will be removed when the new room is created. You will also want to install windows for natural light, but this could also affect possible space. You could create storage space within another room in your home, or you could hide the new loft room’s storage space within cubbyholes or spaces above alcoves.
Please keep in mind, when you have a consultation with us, we will take care of all of this for you. This will mean that you do not have to spend weeks figuring this all out yourself. As you can see, these are just a few little things that can make a DIY loft conversion very difficult for you!

Here at Loft Conversion Newcastle, we can design and create any loft conversion you can imagine. To give you an idea of just how creative and innovative we can be, our loft conversions Newcastle rooms can vary from a bedroom and bathroom to a music recording studio. We could even turn your loft into a giant video game room. In fact, one of the more popular and creative loft conversions we have created in recent history has been the music studios, which we are able to do with relative ease. The main complications to the process is ensuring that the loft is soundproofed to professional standards, and ensuring that insulation within the room itself has been installed correctly. We can do this in the Newcastle, United Kingdom area but also areas such as Gateshead, Callerton, Whickham, Forest Hall, Wallsend, Washington, Winlaton and others making us the best Newcastle loft conversion company.
There are a few common themes with the Newcastle loft conversions we provide in Newcastle, United Kingdom. They are mainly for growing families that need extra living spaces for children or others, and often we are required to build a bedroom or living space for added value. However, within the Newcastle, United Kingdom area there are also a few more uncommon loft conversions we can carry out.
One of the rarer type of extensions or loft conversions Newcastle home owners have requested to carry out within the Newcastle, England area is for recording studios. With the growth of digital media many times we are asked to convert a loft that is for recording purposes, which we can do with relative ease. Whether you would like your loft converted to play loud musical recordings, or would like to make videos to be put onto YouTube, we can promise to convert your loft to ensure that there is no sound leakage and to ensure your loft is also correctly insulated. Newcastle loft conversion companies make sure to be proficient in all loft conversion uses.
Another common theme amongst our loft conversions Newcastle services is extending or boarding a loft for storage space. With some lofts, not being large enough to store some of the bigger items, an extension is often required for added space. If you are looking to place heavier items into your loft, then the benefit of boarding your loft with a Newcastle loft conversion company for structural integrity and the ability to neatly organise your personal items are also beneficial. The overall benefits to ensuring that your loft is structurally sound and being able to ensure that there will be no damages to both personal items and property make the extension or loft boarding worth it.
Loft extensions are a great way to make the most out of your previous conversion. You may lack the space that you require, and need additional room to include additions or items within the room that an extension will be able to fit. With an extension, you can also change the design of the room. Lifting the roof with an extension means that you can add wide windows or windowed walls to let in as much natural light as possible while giving the room a natural and sleek design. The extension itself will also provide you with more design options that you could do yourself, such as adding artwork like paintings or posters, or even a redecoration with the colours of your wall. Here at Loft Conversions Newcastle, we love to help customers in the area. A loft renovation would also be helpful for property value.
Many also do not realise that an incorrect boarding or conversion can leave your room insulated incorrectly. With a boarding that allows air to leak in our out of your loft, the room itself would be impacted by the natural weather of the seasons. The loft will be hotter while it is summer, and colder while winter, meaning that you have little to no control over the rooms temperature. This is a negative Newcastle loft conversion companies always face despite the function of the room itself.
If you are looking for a Newcastle loft conversion, extension or boarding within the Newcastle, United Kingdom area or areas such as Gateshead, Wallsend, Washington, Forest Hall, Winlaton, Callerton, Whickham, Longbenton, Swalwell, Hebburn, Jarrow, Ryton and others, then give us a call now on 02843555010 or fill out the form on the top!

Hip to Gable loft conversions
One of the more common loft conversions that we provide at Loft Conversion Newcastle is hip to gable. Since many of the homes within the Newcastle area specifically are detached with slanted roofing, the overall space possible for your loft is minimised. The slant is the connection of your homes roof to the base of the side wall, which often means that potential space that would have otherwise been there is now taken away. If you are looking for a Newcastle loft conversion company who provides loft conversions that gives an extension of space rather than maximising the space you already have, then a dormer or mansard loft conversion may be more beneficial for you. The benefit of a hip to gable is that they provide enough space for a hobby room, or for a double bedroom for guests, family or even specifically for property value. We provide the best loft conversions Newcastle companies offer, including hip to gable loft conversions.
A hip to gable generally diminishes the overall lost space that is caused from this slant, allowing you to maximise as much space within the loft as possible and allowing you to create living space within your loft without having to extend outwards like a mansard or dormer loft conversion requires. This also means that you would have to invest less financially and the project itself will be completed faster due to the use of less raw materials, labour costs and overall construction work. This also makes the hip to gable option the more suitable choice for those who need to add less living space within their home, cannot afford a dormer or mansard loft conversion and more specifically, those who wish to increase their property value by adding an additional bedroom within the home. Loft Conversions Newcastle is the best company for these projects, being the best Newcastle loft conversion company.
Hip to gable loft conversions are generally the more simplistic loft conversion option. It does not require the same amount of construction or any extension like the other loft conversion options, while also allowing you to design the rooms living space post conversion. This means you can accurately plan and design your lofts room once the conversion is complete with very little to no error with the best Newcastle loft conversion company. So, if you are looking to simply convert your loft without needing the additional space, a hip to gable is the most convenient and suitable choice. We provide the best loft conversions Newcastle companies offer!

Dormer Loft Conversions
An important loft conversion Newcastle many home owners are currently investing into are dormer loft conversions. Many take the advantage of maximising their current loft space with a hip to gable by complimenting it with a dormer loft conversion, or even forgoing the hip to gable just to extend their space outwards. A dormer loft conversion allows you to do both if you wish, since it does not require the same level of investment to extend as a mansard conversion. Since the dormer itself is an L-shaped extension in or around your roof, it also allows for some flexibility during the planning and construction process. It is a great choice if you feel that your current loft space is not enough for your living space plans, but are either not willing to invest further into the loft conversion, or you are not in need of the mansard conversion.
Since the L-shaped dormer conversion is both flexible with placement, and allows for an extension while not needing to extend too far, some may fall under the Permitted Development act. This would mean that you do not have to apply for planning permission, saving you a great deal of time and aggravation in the short term. However, I would not suggest that you plan around the Permitted Development act, and if you need the extra space a dormer can provide and it goes beyond the act, then you should still plan for the extra space and apply for planning permission. This is due to the fact you should never invest into your property without a clear vision, or endangering the original design plans that you had for your loft conversion. The investment into your property will always pay itself back through personal usage and property value, so you shouldn’t compromise your loft conversion plans for convenience.

Mansard Loft Conversions
The last type of loft conversion Newcastle home owners often undergo are mansard loft conversions. These are great options for those with terraced houses who need a lot of additional space and cannot extend their homes on the ground level, or for those who wish to extend their loft space as much as possible with a semi-detached or detached property. Since mansard conversions are designed to create living space by both maximising already existing space and extending and creating as much space as possible, they become a great option for specific room designs. Customers looking for very specific living spaces such as home theatres, sauna and steam rooms or even a combination of double bedrooms and bathrooms would find the mansard loft conversion most suitable. While you must invest more time and financial costs with a mansard conversion, they provide the most return on that investment.
The sheer size and time that goes into creating a safe and suitable mansard loft conversion does make it costlier. The raw materials that are required such as the steel beams to ensure structural integrity factor into the overall cost of the conversion, as does skilled and experienced labour to ensure the construction is both efficiently and professionally completed. As a company, we ensure to only hire the best to ensure a perfectly completed project and a safe and usable conversion. We provide the best loft conversions Newcastle companies offer, as the best Newcastle loft conversion company!
The boarding, insulation, construction of the mansard itself and even the structure needs to be done within optimization to ensure master craftsmanship which we at Loft Conversion Newcastle pride ourselves on. Many factors contribute to the overall time and financial cost of mansard loft conversions, but to give you a specific and educated cost and timeline quote before construction begins, we simply need measurements, plans and requirements from you. This can all be done on our first meeting for a free of charge quote.
