Loft Conversions in Bromley, Beckenham & All Surrounding Locations in Kent & London | Jigsaw

Space demands an eye-watering premium, as anyone who has bought a property in the popular areas of Kent or London will most likely attest to. So when it starts to feel lacking, and the dreaded phrase “maybe we should move home” first gets uttered, you’d be excused for feeling a little pang of dread in the bottom of your stomach. But what about taking currently underutilised space, and transforming it into a vital, cohesive part of your property via the magic of loft conversions? Covering areas from Beckenham to Bromley, Chislehurst to Dartford, Gravesend to Petts Wood and West Wickham, Jigsaw’s veteran builders are the ideal partners if you’re looking to totally revolutionise how you use your attic space.

Our loft conversions can be used however you’d like. While popular options include the addition of a guest bedroom, master bathroom suite or fully-fit out home office, this is really just the tip of the iceberg. Others might wish for a cosy den to enjoy with the family, and create a media room for film nights and hang outs. Whatever your goals for the project, Jigsaw ensures its loft conversions are carefully tailored to achieve them.

Styles & Techniques – Loft Conversions

Many of those living in and around Beckenham, Bromley, Chislehurst, Dartford, Gravesend, Petts Wood and West Wickham think: “my attic is far too small, so loft conversions are out the question”. But this is far from the case! While some are lucky enough to have large attics which only really need a spot of decoration, general TLC, and the introduction of a natural light source via roof light installation, most need structural alteration to their roofline to get enough head room and lateral space for the intended end use.

That’s why our builders have mastered the following different styles and techniques for loft conversions, allowing us to tailor the project to the property’s architectural character:

  • Dormer Conversion: Widely popular, dormer extensions involve adding a box-like structure, creating additional headroom and floor space.

  • Velux or Roof Light Conversion: Ideal for pitched roofs, this method installs roof windows to enhance natural light, transforming lofts into airy spaces.

  • Hip-to-Gable Conversion: Suited for hipped roofs, it extends the hip to form a gable end, increasing usable space.

  • Mansard Conversion: Characterised by a flat roof and steep sloping sides, this technique provides significant additional space, often requiring planning permission.

Should you require planning permission for loft conversions, our builders can help you draw up an application and present it to the relevant planning authority in Beckenham, Bromley, Chislehurst, Dartford, Gravesend, Petts Wood or West Wickham.
