Sometimes moving to a new house is not a feasible or appealing option. With Ploughcroft’s fully-insulated Loft Conversions you get access to the extra space you crave without having to leave your home behind.
York is a charming city brimming with rich history and character, which is why it’s understandable that many residents consider a Loft Conversion before entertaining the idea of moving to a new home when looking to increase their living space.
Aside from the natural advantage of utilising existing untapped space, Loft Conversions increase the value of your home. And the best bit? Newly permitted development rights could potentially mean that your Loft Conversion won’t require planning permission. Generally, you don’t have to obtain planning permission if the volume of your new Loft Conversion isn’t over 40m^3 for a terraced house and over 50m^3 for detached and semi-detached houses.
Don’t worry, the Planning Portal has a wealth of information and resources regarding planning permission and our knowledgeable and trustworthy team will be able to offer you some advice and guidance. So, not only do Loft Conversions save you the headache of estate agent fees and legal expenses associated with relocating to a new home or the costs of adding a traditional extension, they also mean you could potentially avoid the hassle often linked to planning permission.
Our professional team go the extra mile to ensure your Loft Conversion is a seamless, undisruptive process, complying with the Local Authority and all Health and Safety and Building Regulations. Our friendly team understand that you’re busy and provide you with accurate time frames for your Loft Conversion York project that they stick to.
As Which? Trusted Traders, our staff keep you in the loop every step of the way from planning to completion, displaying exceptional workmanship and attention to detail. You won’t find any ‘cowboy builders’ here at Ploughcroft.
The fact that our Loft Conversions are fully insulated using our original Eco-Roof™, which innovatively combines our reliable re-roofing with our effective insulating service, makes it a valuable future investment for your home. Our unique Eco-Roof™ involves quickly installing high-quality loft insulation then adding our high-tech Eco-Roof thermal blanket.
While our Eco-Roof™ can save you up to £500 a year on your energy bills, your Loft Conversion doesn’t have to compromise on style with Ploughcroft being certified Velux window installers meaning your new loft could be made bright and open with stunning skylight windows.
An even cheaper alternative to a Loft Conversion is our Eco Loft Storage and Insulation, which transforms an unused loft space into a practical, warm, dry and clean storage space.
Whether you want extra space for a playroom for your children, a spare bedroom, office or even bathroom, your Loft Conversion can enhance your home for years to come adding further functionality and freeing up space in other areas of your house.
