As there are a number of variables involved in the costs, you should only take this as a rough guideline. An approximate price for materials and construction work would be £1,250 per m2. When you add this to building control fees, architects fees and planning fees, you will get an idea of the total cost.

Be mindful of the fact that all lofts are not suitable for converting, so this issue must be investigated. The best way to make sure that your loft can in fact be converted, is to get in touch with an expert. Any loft conversion in the UK needs a height of at least 2.2 meters. To save some time, you could initially measure the height for yourself, by jumping up into your loft armed with a measuring tape. Is your roof built with rafters or trusses? You may not think that this is relevant but it will impact on ease and cost of the project. Doing conversions on roofs with trusses is generally trickier and more expensive.

You can find out these exceptions by getting in touch with your local planning office. Your chosen Slough loft conversion company should be able to help you with this. Of course this doesn't mean that you do not have to abide by the current building regulations, which are entirely different from planning permission. The building regulations cover build quality and safety which is very important and the place to go for this is your local building control office.
