How much does a loft conversion cost?

The simple answer is that the average price for a loft conversion ranges between £25,000 to £50,000 depending on the size and specification of the job. But there are lots of varying elements that will essentially determine how much yours will cost.

Some factors that will affect your loft conversion costs include;

1. Where you are in the country

As with any product or service, the price of a loft conversion will depend on where you are based in the country. Note that the prices stated above are based on loft conversions in Bournemouth, Poole and generally across Dorset.

2. The size of the available loft space and your homes roof structure

Naturally most homes have very different spaces and setups, so it’s impossible to give a ‘one size fits all’ cost. Do you need to raise the roof or change the roof structure? If so this could require planning permission approval, so the cost of your local planning permission application will need to be considered.

3. The type of conversion you have and the level of internal finish that you choose

If you would like an en-suite in your loft for example, this will of course involve more plumbing work and additional costs for bathroom fixtures and fittings than a loft with no bathroom.

4. Access to the loft space

Have you considered whether any alterations may be required on the lower floors to enable the development? This could involve adding a stairwell / staircase, providing fire-safe access, or reconfiguring an existing access point.

5. But don’t forget the added value of your home! Now there’s no denying that this wonderful new space in your home should be enjoyed, but another benefit of a loft conversion is that they can be one of the best ways of adding value to your home.
