We concentrate on working within the loft space for as long as we can to keep any disturbance to a minimum.
It’s only when we open up for the new stairwell or relocate existing walls, when we start to work within your existing living area. Depending on the works involved, it’s usually within the last 20% of the conversion when we make a start on installing the staircase.
If your loft conversion includes lowering the existing ceilings, then the process is a little different. We will concentrate on installing the new ceilings as soon as works begin and we will have them plastered as soon as they’re in place to keep any disruption to a minimum; they’re usually plastered within 2 weeks of the start date. Most people opt to move out of their home temporarily while the ceilings are being lowered, as the rooms below will need to be emptied before we make a start on lowering the ceilings.
