LOOKING FOR LOFT SKYLIGHTS?

Skylight loft conversions are also known as Velux conversions. These are perhaps the most cost-effective loft conversion out there, as it requires the simplest amount of construction.

For those lucky enough to already have enough space in their loft, Skylight loft conversions can provide a truly cost-effective way to build an extra room, and generally speaking (this isn’t the case for all) planning permission isn’t usually needed. 

It’s worth noting however, that due to the loft conversion merely consisting of making use of the space that you already have, without extending, these types of loft conversions can be more restricting. Nevertheless, they are far more affordable and usually take a mere matter of weeks to complete, which can be a huge bonus for some.

WHY CHOOSE LOFT SKYLIGHTS?

With the outside of your property not being altered, aside from a Velux style window, you can expect minimal construction.

Despite this, they still offer incredible benefits such as beautiful views, extra space that can often work out great as an office or playroom and they still add incredible value to your home.

Here at Clapham Construction Service, we’ve carried out multiple Skylight Loft Conversions throughout London and beyond. As loft conversion specialists, we can help you decide whether a skylight loft conversion would be the best choice for you.

Clapham Construction have done a great job on our loft conversion and we are very pleased with how smoothly the project went, and the brilliant loft space that we now have. Paul - thank you especially for guiding us through all the stages before and during the build. Their workmen were hard working from start to finish, efficient, and obviously very skilled. They were also polite, helpful and really tidy. We had great communication by email with their office, and with Paul in person and on the WhatsApp group - thank you. Our family in USA are now looking forward to staying with us in comfort this summer and beyond!

Paul, Dangis and the team are simply top notch. They did such a high-quality job on a tight timeframe and communicated so well throughout. They were a pleasure to work with, handled all elements of the build from start to finish and kept disruption as minimal as they could. Couldn’t recommend them more highly if I tried.

Thank you Clapham Construction! Your team were friendly, efficient, and highly motivated. The project ran to schedule with effective overlapping of tasks to allow for minimum disruption. Paul kept us actively involved at each stage of the process, so we always knew what was happening when, which was really reassuring. If we ever had a question, he would talk it through with us in person and offer advice without any pressure or expectation. The work is completed to an excellent standard. All the construction workers where kind, considerate, friendly, polite and kept our house as clean and tidy as possible. This took so much of the stress out of living on site during the works with a young son. Even the neighbours commented on how polite and considerate the builders had been. We would highly recommend this team for anyone thinking of undertaking a loft conversion in the future.

Absolute professionals is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Clapham Construction service. And there are two further things you need to know about them: they are brilliant at what they do and they are generous in spirit. Throughout our project Paul and Dangis answered our naive questions with warmth and care. They helped guide us at every turn, and almost certainly saved us money by making sure we considered all the options we had before making key decisions. But not just customer care, the building work is also top notch. The build itself was a well oiled process, coordinated with skill. I was initially worried about getting an anonymous loft company I'd never heard of in (after getting 8 different quotes from a variety of places including famous local ones) and being part of the 'box on the roof' brigade. Yet somehow, they have created build magic with some tweaks on 'a little bit of height' here, and 'a little configuration' there. We keep marvelling at the sturdiness and smoothness of the physical build even now, and the army of highly skilled teams they have were a pleasure to host in the house while we worked from home. And finally the most important bit - the money stuff- our Loft extension (including bathroom) was completed on time and more or less on budget. The additional costs were the unforseen - (yikes a victorian chimney needs dismantling!) and a few flourishes that we ourselves added to the mix - (can the door handles be gold?). Any additional build costs were communicated efficiently and immediately. Our experience of Clapham Construction is that they are patient, hugely knowledgable, and detail orientated with a wealth of incredible advice. Don't delay on getting them on your project!

We spoke to a few companies to quote our dormer loft conversion but were immediately impressed speaking to Dangis & Paul and went with Clapham CS. We’re really happy with the end result which has given us some much needed extra space. Progress was quick, these guys are very experienced and know exactly what they’re doing. They’ll talk you through your plans and give you honest advice at key stages when you need to make a decision, very patient with us too! Would definitely recommend, they’ve done numerous houses in our neighbouring streets too, end results always look great.

Highly recommend this company. As first time buyers and first time renovators we couldn't be happier with their service. Paul and Dangis are very professional and thorough, at no times does it feel like corners are cut. They are able to provide genuine advice and guidance while being accommodating ensuring a stress free process.

Clapham Construction completed our kitchen extension for us. We’re really pleased with the results, and it has changed the whole place. The price was agreed upfront and there were no hidden extras. Good communication throughout the whole process on WhatsApp and Dan showed great building experience. They had the whole team from build, kitchen fitting through to finishing the garden off available in house so made it a lot easier. Thanks guys.

SKYLIGHT LOFT CONVERSION - FAQS

What is a skylight (or Velux) loft conversion?

A skylight, or Velux, loft conversion involves adding windows into the existing slope of the roof without altering or expanding the existing space in any way. This type of conversion is named after the popular window manufacturer, Velux.

How much does a skylight (or Velux) loft conversion cost?

Skylight loft conversions are typically the most cost-effective type of loft conversion, as they require less structural work than other types. The cost can vary depending on the number and type of windows you choose, but typically you might expect to pay between £25,000 and up.

Do I need planning permission for a skylight (or Velux) loft conversion?

In most cases, skylight loft conversions fall under permitted development rights and do not require planning permission, as they do not significantly alter the profile of the roof. However, it’s always best to check with your local planning authority to be sure.

What types of windows can be used in a skylight (or Velux) loft conversion?

There are several types of windows that can be used in a skylight loft conversion. The most common are centre pivot windows, which rotate in the middle, and top-hung windows, which open from the top. There are also roof terrace windows, which can provide access to a roof terrace, and balcony system windows, which create a small balcony area. The best type of window for your conversion will depend on your specific needs and the structure of your roof.

How long does it take to complete a skylight (or Velux) loft conversion?

As skylight loft conversions require less structural work than other types of conversions, they can often be completed more quickly. The exact timeline will depend on the complexity of the project, but typically you might expect a skylight loft conversion to take around 4 weeks to complete.
