These figures shouldn't be taken as gospel though, they are just intended as a general guide. Each m2 of your loft conversion will cost about £1,250 for building materials and construction work. As you would imagine, there are other costs to be added, such as architects fees, building control fees and planning fees.

You shouldn't just take for granted that you will be able to do a loft conversion, since not all lofts in Kingston upon Thames are suitable. To guarantee that your loft can actually be converted, get an expert round to survey it. One aspect is the total height of your loft, if it is greater than 2.2m you should be on track. To save time, you could initially measure the height for yourself, by climbing up into your loft space with a measuring tape. Is your roof built with rafters or trusses? You may not believe that this is relevant but it will impact on cost and ease of the project. Doing conversions on trussed roofs is usually more difficult and costlier.

Something you might give some thought to if you are good at do-it-yourself, and are keen to take on a project like this, is to opt for a shell loft conversion. This is an option where the conversion contractor will complete all of the key structural tasks (often called a first-fix loft conversion), for instance windows, staircase, roof alterations, steel beams (when needed), structural floor and dormers. The home owner (namely you) is left to finish the rest of the work at your leisure.
