I guess one of the questions that will be foremost in your mind at this point is "what will it cost"? Costs of course vary depending on the size and layout of the property and the type of conversion being done. To give you a rough guideline, the average cost of a loft conversion in 2019 was £35,000, so keeping this figure in mind might be useful. If a figure like this doesn't scare you at all then you might be in a good position to press ahead with the work, if it worries you, an alternative option might be better.

These figures should not be taken as gospel, they are just intended as a general guide. The cost of the building materials and construction work will typically be about £1,250 per square metre. As you would imagine, there are other costs to be added, such as architect fees, building control fees and planning fees.

Before getting too involved you need to remember that not every loft is suitable for conversion. The first thing you do should be to have your loft checked out by an expert. One of the crucial deciding factors is the height of the loft which must be a minimum of 2.2 metres. To save time, you can at first measure this yourself, by clambering up into your loft space armed with a measuring tape. Does your roof have trusses or rafters? You may not think that this matters but it will impact on cost and ease of the project. Doing conversions on roofs with trusses is usually more difficult and costlier.

If you are a bit of a DIY aficionado you could possibly even consider getting what is known as a shell loft conversion. This is a service whereby the conversion specialist will undertake all the major structural tasks (also referred to as a first-fix loft conversion), like dormers/mansard, structural floor, stairs, skylights/windows, steel beams (when needed) and roofing work. The home owner (namely you) is left to complete the rest of the work at his leisure.
