The busy nature of our modern lives with the competing demands of work, family and quality “me” time makes it hard to achieve that perfect work-life balance and to find the space we all need to relax with our favourite hobbies, focus on work or accommodate a growing family.

Most families love their existing house and don’t want to move but new additions and/or responsibilities often mean that they have outgrown their current home’s available space. BK Conversions will help you create that much-needed extra space in an efficient and cost-effective way by converting your existing loft into whatever type of room/s you need – for work, leisure or family.

How do we create this extra space?

We convert your house’s existing loft from an unused space – whose current function is probably only as a storage area for an assortment of clutter – into the extra living and/or working space that you need. Call us on 0141 280 4197 to discuss your loft conversion needs.

Why convert a loft rather than build a traditional house extension?

A conventional house extension often means having your home open to the elements during building works, bringing mess and upheaval. The end product reduces the size of your garden meaning less outdoor space to enjoy during the summer months. It can also be expensive relative to the extra space created. Your loft, however, is within the existing footprint of your building so typically requires less work, time and money to create an equivalent amount of additional space which doesn’t encroach on your garden.

What can my loft be converted into?

Fundamentally a loft can be converted into whatever you require – subject to your budget and building regulations. Some of the popular options for loft conversions in the Edinburgh area include: extra living space e.g. upstairs bedrooms and a bathroom, a home office, an artist’s or crafter’s studio, a home gym or cinema or a living space for an adult son/daughter/family carer. BK Conversions can create the loft conversion that meets your needs. Call now on 0141 280 4197 to begin your conversion conversation.

Are there any other benefits from converting my loft?

A loft conversion means that you maximise the usable space within your house’s existing footprint and create something of value from a space that is currently just being wasted. You make your existing home bigger, potentially saving you from being forced to move to a larger, more expensive house when your family grows or your work-life changes e.g. if you start a home-based business or need to work from home. Converting your loft enables you to remain in the area you currently know and avoid the upheaval (and cost) of a house move. By increasing the size of your existing house in this way, it can also add value to the property and make it a more attractive and saleable proposition than neighbouring (unconverted) properties should the time come to sell and move on.

Call BK Conversions on 0131 357 5700 to help you maximise the space in your beloved existing home.

Why chose us

At BK Conversions we appreciate that when potential customers research “loft conversion companies”, they are confronted with a list of firms claiming to specialise in this sector. So why should you choose ourselves?

Our team is made up of Scottish-trained, qualified and experienced building professionals who have experience of a wide selection of construction projects over decades. All of this means that we possess the required expertise – in areas including building regulations, best practice techniques and the management of projects – that is needed to bring your loft conversion to completion in the most efficient and cost-effective way.

The conversion of an existing loft into new living space may appear to be (superficially) simpler than a home extension but it requires the specialist knowledge that only properly-trained and experienced construction industry professionals can provide.

This ensures that your home’s safety and structural integrity is protected. We ensure that the right skillsets and the highest standards of workmanship are deployed on all of our loft conversions.

High-quality builds. Affordable prices

We aim to keep our loft conversion quotes competitive but never cut corners on safety or quality by the use of unqualified people, low grade materials or shoddy methods in order to offer unrealistically low estimates. The integrity of your house and the safety of your family are not worth gambling on merely to save a few pounds. It is a false economy.

Some conversion companies have large showrooms or a whole family of “directors” – all of which, you (the customer) ends up paying for somehow. BK Conversions is a tradesperson-owned and run enterprise that is big enough to meet the needs of any loft conversion project but small enough to offer individual customer care and value for money.

FAQ

Here are some of the more common questions that we get asked by new clients in respect of our loft conversions in Edinburgh:
Depending on the space available and the limitations of planning regulations and the budget available you can create a range of spaces from a single large room e.g. a home office, artist’s studio, games room, cinema or gym to a whole suite of upstairs rooms e.g. a set of bedrooms, bathroom and living room for a growing family.
Yes. Unless you wish to use your own (see below), we provide access to experienced architects, designers and civil/structural engineers familiar with loft conversions.
We will happily quote based on a full set of approved drawings from your architect.
No. COMPANY NAME organises all trades (as per our agreed quotation) necessary for your conversion.
There is no easy answer to this as it depends on several factors. You must always speak to the planning department of your local council to ascertain this. Requirements vary depending on where you live and the nature of your existing house/loft and format of the conversion planned. Where you require planning permission, our architect will guide you as to the submissions necessary and the relevant process.
Yes. A building warrant is a prerequisite for almost every building project and is entirely unrelated to any requirement for planning permission. The warrant is applied for via the building standards department of your local council and they will verify that your planned building conforms to Scottish building regulations. Our architect will guide you as to the submissions necessary and the relevant process.
This varies widely by council area and can take anything from 3 weeks to 3 months.
Every individual project is unique and has its own challenges so our preference is to give you a timescale tailored to your specific situation.
Most lofts can be converted but depending on the type of building (bungalow, semi-detached, top floor flat) and the original roof design, but in some situations it may not be feasible to convert e.g. not cost-effective due to the extent of structural alterations required or not producing a worthwhile amount of space.

Every loft conversion is different depending on the original structure, the modifications involved and the client’s wishes so bespoke estimates are provided (based on a visit & survey) to ensure they are as accurate as possible. There is no generic “one size fits all” pricing structure and firms claiming to offer instant online quotes should be treated with caution.

Staged payments over the course of the job to cover design/council fees, materials, percentage of work complete followed by full & final payment upon completion.

We are a Scottish-owned & operated service, made up of British-trained and registered construction professionals with the necessary expertise & experience to carry out your loft conversion project successfully. We are equipped to manage all aspects of any loft conversion – from offering the services of experienced architects & engineers for the upfront design work through to project managing all of the subsequent stages up to & including final completion – saving you time & effort.

We mainly serve the Greater Edinburgh area but can provide a service to wider west of Scotland areas within reasonable commuting distance of Edinburgh. Enquire on 0141 XXX XXXX
