Lead-in times

The project management is carefully organized with our team and is a system that we have worked and developed over the years.

We don’t have lots of separate teams but one group that are centrally run and organised, so each conversion goes through the same system, this maintains high standards and quality of service to you.

You will have a project manager that will be your point of contact through the conversion and also at least 7 other points of contact while your loft is being converted.

The tradesman that will build your conversion have worked with the company for many years, it’s a settled work force and each member has been tried and tested for their reliability and ability to do the work to a high standard.

Also because of the length of time that the men have worked together means that the teams work between each trade (Architects, Plumbing, Electrics, Plastering, Carpentry, Roofing, Scaffolding, and Joinery for New staircase etc) is fantastic and second to none.

The plans and structural calculations will be prepared by our architect and submitted to Building Control for approval.

A copy of the plans will be given to you prior to the application being made, at this stage any alterations you may want can be incorporated in the design.

Your plans and structural calculations will be submitted to building control approved inspectors.

They will check and approve the plans in 2 days and send out correspondence to you, keeping you updated with the process.

They will also send you an invoice for their work, as this is not included in our price.

Once the work has started the building inspector will be called to site a few times to check the work with the project manager, so you will be able to stay in touch with the process, we obviously will organise everything that is required

At the end of the project we will give you our full Company Ten Year Guarantee. We also offer an insurance backed guarantee if you feel it necessary to have it at an extra cost.

South London Lofts Ltd has full Insurance cover.
