As well as offering valuable extra living space, loft conversions provide one of the best returns on investment you can get when it comes to extending, with experts suggesting they add the most value to your home in comparison to the cost. Converting your loft from a cold dark storage area to a desirable and habitable living space is, in fact, one the quickest and cheapest ways to add extra room and value to your home.

Most loft conversions can be done under permitted development rights, which allow the improvement and extension of homes, under certain restrictions.
