Types of Loft Conversions Most Suitable for Greenwich Houses
1. Dormer Conversion
This type of loft conversion is incredibly versatile and well-suited for a range of homes in Greenwich, from charming Victorian terraces to more modern semi-detached properties. Its design flexibility makes it an excellent choice for many homeowners.
2. L-Shaped Dormer Loft Conversion
In Greenwich, with its plethora of Victorian and Edwardian homes, an L-Shaped Dormer is particularly effective. The design aligns perfectly with properties that have their kitchen or bathroom at the rear.
3. Hip-to-Gable Conversion
This style fits wonderfully into the fabric of Greenwich’s semi-detached and detached homes, giving them not just extra room but also an enhanced aesthetic appeal.
4. Mansard Conversion
This elegant conversion is most compatible with Greenwich’s older, more traditional properties like Georgian and Victorian townhouses, offering a substantial addition of functional space without compromising the home’s historical integrity.
5. Velux Loft Conversion
This type of conversion is ideal for Greenwich homes where planning constraints may apply. It’s especially beneficial for homes with ample existing headroom, such as bungalows or smaller terraced houses.
Each of these loft conversion styles offers distinct advantages tailored to the architectural diversity of Greenwich homes. Visionary Lofts is poised to guide you through choosing the conversion type that will most effectively augment both the function and the form of your residence in Greenwich.

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.
