Whether you need an extra bedroom, office space, hobby room, playroom or just a bolt hole to get away from it all, a Ploughcroft loft conversion could give an alternative way to increase your habitable living space without encroaching on your valuable outdoor garden space.
Whether you’re thinking of a dormer loft conversion, a room in the roof installation or fitting VELUX roof windows, our experienced team can ensure that you not only increase your space but decrease your energy costs in the process.
Improved Insulation For Your Attic Conversion
Using our extensive roofing knowledge, our Ploughcroft team combined a re-roof with high-quality roof insulation to create the intelligent Eco Roof™ thermal blanket. An Eco Roof™ insulation can be made whilst we carry out your Eco Loft Conversion or Eco Loft Storage. You can save up to £500 a year on your energy bills, increase your home’s value by up to 14% and boost your property’s Energy Performance Certificate by two bands!
There has never been a better time to consider a loft conversion. In most cases, permitted development rights mean that a loft conversion can be carried out with no planning permission and all the building regulation approval can be taken care of by our friendly office staff.
Whether you require a standard loft conversion, dormer extension, more substantial roof extension or a whole additional floor adding to a bungalow then our experienced surveyors can help.
Always fully compliant with BS5534 British Roofing Standards, Ploughcroft are accredited and highly accomplished roofing contractors, including being highly experienced at undertaking large scale commercial and domestic roof replacement and re-roofing projects. It’s worth noting that a spacious and modern loft conversion can be considered and incorporated when you are thinking about re-roofing your home.
With over 20 years’ experience, you can be sure Ploughcroft will ensure that your newly converted loft space/dormer roof fully complies with all current building regulations and is well insulated.
Our experienced Surveyors and Building Engineers (not salespeople) will be able to advise you on your plans and work with you to ensure that the resulting loft conversion fully meets your expectations. Our staff work closely with LABC (Local Authority Building Control) to ensure your safety and peace of mind.
If you need advice from an Architect or Structural Engineer regarding your attic conversion, we can put you in touch with professionals we work with frequently, who can give you the very best advice!
Flat Roof Dormer Extensions
All our flat roof dormer extensions come with the benefit of a warm flat roof system and we ensure that the entire dormer is insulated to exceptional standards.
If you are planning on extending or altering your roof space with a dormer extension planning permission is not usually required.
A dormer extension is the perfect way to add usable floor space and head height, giving you more options when planning your internal living space.
Pitched Roof Dormer Extensions
Pitched roof dormer extensions tend to give more space and be more aesthetically pleasing than some flat roof alternatives.
Our experienced joinery teams will ensure your pitched roof dormer extension not only looks stunning but is fully insulated. This type of roof conversion can also be installed with the added benefit of our Eco-Roof™ thermal blanket.
Room in the Roof Conversion
If your home already has an old room in the roof or attic conversion this provides the most cost effective way to add space to your home. We will bring your existing space up to current standards and save money on your energy bills in the process by adding either internal wall insulation or our Eco-Roof™ thermal blanket.
VELUX Roof Windows
If your new loft conversion requires roof windows rather than a dormer extension, we can help by installing VELUX roof windows and skylights. As VELUX Certified Installers we never use cheaper alternatives. We are able to offer a variety of sizes/styles and configurations. Our experienced Surveyors will be able to give you advice and ideas on how to make the most of your attic conversion.
There are some loft conversion companies who claim to offer guarantees in excess of 10 years on these products. However, no Velux product carries a guarantee unless it has been installed in accordance with VELUX standards and the VELUX Product Guarantee is for a 10-year period. Being VELUX Certified Installers means all guarantees will be valid and intact.
