By the time you get round to actually contacting loft conversion companies in Chiswick you will probably have been considering the pros and cons of moving up into the attic for some time; at an average of £37,500 for the job, it is not something that the average person decides in five minutes.
Once you have made up your mind, though, the thinking really begins: you really must take time before you choose your builder for your Chiswick loft extension, because it is work that will change your house for ever.
Unlike something like a conservatory or garden room, this is not something that you can just tear down if it doesn’t suit your needs.
The first and most important thing to do is to make yourself a list of loft conversion specialists in Chiswick to contact. Don’t even think of using a general builder, who will not have the skills or resources for such a job. But even if you opt for a specialist, you will find that their services and what they include in the final estimate will vary hugely, so don’t go with the first one you try, without doing some serious comparisons.
Cost will come into the equation at some point, but don’t be swayed by a low (or high) bottom line. More important than the total is what you will be getting for your money.
For example, how long will the job take, from day one of the building work beginning to the day you can shut the door behind the workmen? Some companies make a long time estimate sound like a positive, because it makes you think that the quality of the work will be superior.
This is rarely the case and you will probably find that as well as attic extensions in W4 they are working all over London and leaving you with wires trailing and sagging plaster while they are elsewhere.
At Loftus Design and Build we have a unique ProFastBuild Modular Loft Conversion System which means that almost all – as much as 80% – of the fabrication is done off site, so they are only in your house for the finishing. This means less upheaval all round and a much cleaner build. You can see part of the system in action in the video above.
You need to know what is included in the price. Some people find that things they thought were included were not and this can be something as basic as taps in the bathroom or even stairs.
With Loftus Design and Build you get a set of project drawings (terms apply) to look at and this gives you a chance to ask questions if you are at all doubtful about anything. With our guaranteed work something else to give you complete peace of mind, make sure you are looking for our name when you type ‘loft conversion specialist chiswick’ into your search engine.
