The Visionary Lofts team were professional and diligent throughout our renovations project, and worked as quickly as humanly possible. The team members were friendly and responsive and we would consider using them for future projects. Our loft conversion looks beautiful and our young son is very happy with his new room. We want to give a special shout out to our dedicated site manager who was always very proactive and communicative.

Mindi and the on-site team were fantastic. He remains cool and calm no matter what curveballs or demands from his clients come his way.Mindi and the team work to the plans they are given - but as we went through the build process, we had new ideas about lighting, niches, skylights - all of which were accommodated with a smile. Note it is up to the client to raise ideas vs. receiving recommendations.The quality of the work was excellent, and Mindi made himself readily available whenever needed. My recommendation is to go direct to Mindi on any build matters vs Visionary, in order to speed up the process. Outside of initial survey and discussions, Visionary didn't actually visit the property again, so didn't have the context as the build evolved.Thanks Mindi and team for a great job.

Visionary Lofts did a great job on our loft conversion in Streatham into a bathroom, master, walk-in wardrobe and home office. They were reasonably priced--comparable to other highly rated competitors--and did a really good job disclosing the spec and listing all uplifts that would be chargeable (like choosing higher spec doors).When you do building works in your own home, you need to get on well with your builders. Luckily, the build team, led by Mindi, were a pleasure to work with! They were able to do the vast majority of work without entering the house proper, and the "breaking through" day when the new staircase went in was relatively painless (photo below). Mindi was always very responsive by text message to offer advice on how we could save money on the "client directs" (the fittings and trades we arranged), and even proposed a couple of extra things he could fix on our existing drainage, while the scaffolding was up, for a sensible price. His team was also very quick and tidy--clearly they'd done this many times before!We used all the recommended sub-contractors, and were very pleased with the results!

We used Visionary Lofts for loft conversion, and we're very pleased with the service. The project management was flawless throughout. The team maintained excellent communication, providing regular updates on the progress and promptly addressing any concerns or queries that arose. The pricing for their services was fair and transparent. The team provided a detailed breakdown of costs upfront, and there were no surprises or hidden fees along the way.

Visionary Lofts did our loft conversion in 2022/23. I'm very happy with the finished product, and I’d be happy to recommend them and to use their services again in the future.Pretty much the whole project felt like an efficient and carefully thought-out process.Before building work started they talked us through the process in detail and asked lots of questions to make sure we got everything as we wanted it.Once building work had started, most of the coordination was done by Rafal, the foreman from the construction company they work with. He was always friendly and approachable with a positive and can-do attitude.The builders were very hardworking and polite, and their work was consistently of a high quality. I did have to keep a close eye on their work and ask for a few things to be changed along the way, but I guess that's normal.Their decorator was away for a few weeks so I used a tiler and decorator that I found myself, but if I were doing this again I'd definitely use their usual decorator, as it would have made things a lot easier.The project took a couple of months longer than the original estimate, partly due to post-covid materials shortages.Someone from Visionary Lofts called me regularly during the building work and afterwards to check I was happy with how things were going. On a couple of occasions when problems arose (nothing major), I was able to raise it with the 'client services manager' at Visionary Lofts and they got things sorted out quickly.They weren’t the cheapest company we got a quote from, but several people I’ve spoken to who used cheaper companies found the experience much more stressful and/or weren’t completely happy with the quality of the work. I’m happy I paid that bit extra and got a better service.

I used Visionary lofts for a loft conversion, adding a large room and a bathroom. It was a dormer and hip to gable conversion and they also retiled the whole roof of house. Whilst they were not the cheapest quote they were still reasonable in view of the amount of work done. I was impressed with their professionalism and quality of service. We were assigned a person to go through all the aspects of the work and had a great online system which kept tabs on work to be done, deadlines and then all the invoicing. Nothing was left to chance.The builders were excellent and the best I’ve ever used. I have had a lot of building work done over the years and they were the very best. They were extremely hard working and finished the work as scheduled. I cannot rate their work high enough. The plastering was impeccable and the plasterer worked during the hottest time of the year but the job was faultless. I would definitely use visionary lofts and their builders again and highly recommend them.

Visionary Lofts carried out my loft conversion and overall my experience end to end was very good.The initial meetings I had with Visionary were very helpful and I felt in good hands.The quote was very clearly broken down and it was easy to discuss and capture what I wantedFrom the building perspective, there guys were brilliant. Efficient, tidy and incredibly hard working so I was very pleased to have them as my builders and overall managing the other trades on site. I can see why you partner with them!

Visionary Lofts did a brilliant job of our loft extension, along with some other building and renovation work in the rest of the house. Generally easy to deal with and communicative, with the project management service making the process so much less stressful than it could have been - but the best thing about them is the quality of the work and the care that the both the management team and all the tradesman show. I would really recommend them if you're looking for a quality job and are happy to pay slightly more for it.

Balham Loft Conversion FAQs

Your Title Goes Here

Your content goes here. Edit or remove this text inline or in the module Content settings. You can also style every aspect of this content in the module Design settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.

How long will the consultation and survey take?

Generally, the first site visit takes 1 hour, although this can vary depending on the size and complexity of your project, and how much information you need from us at this stage. This includes a quick survey of your home to take key measurements that are required to put together a quotation for the works.

Will I need planning permission, or will my loft conversion fall under permitted development?

In the vast majority of cases, a loft conversion will fall under permitted development, meaning that you won’t need to apply for planning permission. Where this isn’t the case, we can work through the process with you. It’s worth remembering that if planning permission is required, this can add to the overall duration of your project.

Can you help me work through the construction process with my neighbours?

During our initial home visit, we will carry out an assessment of the logistical items that need to be factored in on your project. We will flag these up to you and highlight any items that may require prior approval from your neighbours.

Your party wall surveyor would usually take care of any formal agreements with your neighbour, but we can usually be of assistance to help you address any questions or concerns that your neighbour has raised with you.

Do your loft conversions meet all the building and fire regulations?

Yes. All our work is carried out in accordance with building and fire regulations.

How long will it take for my loft conversion to be completed?

How long your project takes will depend on a number of factors, such as the complexity and size of your loft conversion, planning requirements, etc. However, broadly speaking, a simple loft conversion involving the creation of an additional room would take approximately 12 weeks.

Do I need to be at home while the works are being carried out?

This is a personal choice, and we want you to be as comfortable as possible while we’re working on your loft conversion.

You don’t need to stay at home if you have other work or life commitments, and we can work with you to agree on how to manage this. We would, however, request that a spare set of keys are given to your dedicated project manager so that we can work on your project regardless of whether you are at home or not.

What extra costs might I need to budget for?

It can be difficult to offer a firm idea of any potential extra costs, however, at Visionary Lofts, we aim to reduce the risk of cost slippage by carefully planning and designing your loft conversion from the start. Unfortunately, unforeseen incidents and issues can arise, and we’d recommend having an extra 10% contingency in your general budget.

Other additional costs may be incurred if you change any element of the original design or the project may have been quoted before any design was created, and you will be advised of this at the time by your dedicated project manager.

To help you create a carefully planned budget, we’ve created a budget planner that you can download here.

What if there are issues (snags or defects) that I’m unhappy about?

We want you to be 100% happy with your new loft conversion, and if you find anything that you’re not satisfied with at any stage of your project you can speak to your dedicated project manager.

We will always listen to your point of view and aim to be fair, reasonable and professional.
