our conversion process

It’s good to know what to expect before embarking on your loft conversion project. That’s why Oakwood have a step-by-step guide to our process to help you understand as well as helping you to ask the right questions when choosing the right partner for your loft conversion.

1) Sales consultation

Your first consultation with Oakwood lofts will be to ensure your loft can be converted. We will discuss your loft conversion ideas and vision and cover any issues or queries you may have, such as plumbing, electrics and plastering etc.

2) Initial quotation

You will receive your initial quotation via email, which is subject to full survey (drawings and structural calculations) It will outline all of the works to be completedfor your new loft conversion.

3) order confirmation

Once your order is confirmed, our independent loft designer will visit you, your plans will be drawn up and submitted for approval. We will submit planning (where necessary) and building control approval, and chase the application if needed.

4) party wall notice

If your home adjoins with a neighbor, you will require an agreement under the Party Wall Act 1996, Section 3. Oakwood lofts will help you to obtain this. Planning permission (where necessary) could take up to 12 weeks due to the time required to obtain permission through the council.

5) building work commence

Once approval is gained (where applicable) we will deliver building materials. Scaffolding will be put up and delivery of your steels and other necessary materials will arrive. To minimise disruption and mess, the stairs are fitted once all insulation has been installed and plaster boarding complete in the new landing area, the majority of your conversion will be built externally, meaning all access with be through the roof. The time taken to complete this is dependent on the size of the job and any extreme weather conditions, but usually takes 8 weeks.

6) completion

The final stage – your build is complete and ready for building control approval.
