How can I find out if my loft can be converted?
2.2m is the minimum height requirement (from the floor to the highest point in your loft) for a loft conversion to be viable option. It is still possible to convert if you have less room than this however it would usually involve lowering the ceilings on your first floor.

Will my conversion be subject to building regulations?
All loft conversions require building regulation approval from the local authority. These regulations ensure safety measures are in place and set a standard of construction and design.
Will I need Planning Permission?
Horizon Lofts usually fall under the permitted development category so planning permission will not normally be required. However there are some exceptions where planning permission will need to be sought for example if you live in a listed building or a conservation area, or your conversion is over a certain size. You do not need to worry about this as we will guide you through the whole process.
Can I use my own plans?

Will the work be fully supervised?
At Horizon Lofts our teams are highly skilled and experienced and need little supervision. Our boys know what they're doing! A company director comes to visit each job several times during a build to ensure that our high standard is being continued and to address any questions or queries you may have.
