Decal Scotland Ltd provide loft conversion services to clients in Motherwell.
When someone is considering loft conversion, one of the first questions they ask is how long does it take to convert a loft? Now the answer does depend on what is being done and the work involved but here are a few general ideas to give you a basic framework.
The planning stage of the process and how long it takes often depends on the local planning department. If you need planning permission, they will be able to give you a rough idea of how long the application might take when submitting it. If there’s an appeal or an amendment, this will add more time to the job.
Once permission and regulations have been covered, the work can start. One of the simplest types of conversion is a Velux loft conversion. These can take usually less than a month to complete. If you are having a dormer conversion, these usually take between four and six weeks, depending on the size of the loft and how much roof work is needed.
For a hip to table end conversion, this will typically take around six weeks. If you are having a whole roof replacement, such as a Mansard conversion, then this will take longer, usually around eight weeks.
When you plan a project, the experts you work with will be able to give you a better idea of exactly how long your project will take. Sometimes the weather can interfere with this or unexpected problems, but they will be able to keep you up to date with progress as the work goes on.
