Loft Conversions

in Bolton and the Surrounding Areas | Maximising Your Home’s Potential

Does your home feel smaller and more cramped than ever before? At C & L Brickwork & Construction, we specialise in creating new living space for homeowners in Bolton and the surrounding areas. This includes loft conversions. If your loft is a dark, musty storage space for old clothes, Christmas decorations and general junk, it’s highly likely that our team can transform it into a room of your choosing. Popular options include bedrooms, bathrooms, home offices, games rooms and more.

Our CSCS-certified personnel share more than 40 years of industry expertise, so we understand how much thought you put into choosing a building company for your project. We recognise that you don’t only expect a stunning conversion completed to the highest standards, but also a team that makes the journey a pleasant experience.

You can rest assured, C & L Brickwork & Construction works closely with you to deliver a bespoke conversion on time, within budget and in full compliance with the current Building Regulations.

We adapt to your specific needs. If you already have a plan drawn up, we can work to that. If you’re starting from square one, we can help turn your ideas and concepts into a fleshed out design.

This customer-focused approach has helped us become the trusted choice for loft conversions in Bolton, Wigan, Manchester and all neighbouring areas. We also provide a dedicated service for garage conversions.

Loft Conversions | Choosing the Right Style

Converted lofts come in 4 main designs, all of which we have introduced below. The type of home you have will likely dictate what is and isn’t possible.

  • Rooflight Conversion – These conversions are the least disruptive and most cost-effective. We undertake little structural work. Our builders install the required number of rooflights into the existing roof slope, allowing natural light to flood in. These conversions are ideal for lofts that are large and spacious to start with.
  • Dormer Conversion – Ideal for terraced, semi-detached and detached homes, dormer loft conversions are the most popular option. We build an extension that rises vertically out of the original roof slope. With flat ceilings, ample headroom, impressive floor space and bright interiors, these conversions tick every box.
  • Hip-to-Gable Conversion – Because these designs need a hipped roof to start with, we can only build them on end-of-terrace and semi-detached homes in and around Bolton. Our team removes the hipped side of the roof, building a vertical gable in its place. This creates new living space beneath the reconfigured roofing structure.
  • Mansard Conversion – Built to the rear of most property types, a Mansard conversion alters the structure of your current roof. We replace the existing pitch with a structural addition that has a gradient of 72 degrees. This creates new living space with a distinctive sloping back wall.

Loft Conversions and Permitted Development Rights

As a property owner, you have certain permitted development rights. If your proposed loft conversion meets the necessary criteria, you don’t need to apply for planning permission before our builders get to work.

Fortunately, most loft conversions in Bolton and the surrounding areas qualify as a permitted development. However, if your project alters or extends the roof space beyond the specified conditions and limits, you will need approval from the local authority before proceeding.

Please note, your loft needs a minimum head height of 2.2m to meet current conversion standards.
