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 provide 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 renovation or fitting VELUX roof windows, our experienced team ensure that you not only increase your space but decrease your energy costs in the process. Ploughcroft will ensure that your newly converted loft space/dormer roof is well insulated, saving you money on your energy bills.
Managing your loft conversion – from start to finish!
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. We work alongside local architects and structural engineers to ensure that your project gets off to the best start.
Ploughcroft can organise and manage the entire loft conversion project for you. From appointing an architect, liaising with the building inspector, right through to completion of the project.
We work with a trusted team of tradesmen who are all managed by our in-house Planner and Contract Manager. We organise all trades from roofers, to joiners, to electricians, to plumbing and plastering. Our staff work closely with LABC (Local Authority Building Control) to ensure your safety and peace of mind. We will even organise a decorator for you to put the finished touches to your conversion should you wish – we can take care of it all!
Whether you require a standard loft conversion, dormer extension, more substantial roof extension or a whole additional floor adding to a property then our experienced surveyors can help.

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. We offer a variety of roofing systems, including SIKA Liquid Plastics or Firestone which come with up to 20 years manufacturers warrantly. We also include a 10 year Competent Roofer Workmanship Warranty for your peace of mind.
Pitched Roof Dormer Extensions
Pitched roof dormer extensions tend to give more space and be more aesthetically pleasing than some flat roof alternatives. 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.
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. Our experienced Surveyors will be able to give you advice and ideas on how to make the most of your attic conversion. All Velux windows come with a 10 year warranty.
