Step-by-step guide to modular lofts | Landmark Lofts


A step-by-step guide to the modular loft process

Thinking about getting a modular loft conversion, but aren’t sure what’s involved? Modular loft conversions are the most convenient way to expand your home, with comprehensive project management and a minimal amount of building work at your property. Here’s a short summary of what happens, from your initial quote to the finished product.

Step 1

Most people obtain a quick and easy quote online, or you can simply call us to arrange a free design consultation. Either way, a design consultant will make an appointment to come and see you in your home to discuss your options and give you an exact quote.

Step 2

If you decide to proceed with a modular loft conversion, we will arrange for a laser survey of your loft space. This will enable us to create a detailed and highly accurate 3D architectural model of your new loft. Once you are happy with the architectural plans, we will submit them to your local authority under permitted development or apply for planning permission as applicable. This process can take 8-10 weeks.

Step 3

Once the loft has the go-ahead from your local authority, we will create fabrication and structural drawings of your loft. The steel components will be ordered, and once they’ve arrived at the factory, your loft will be constructed in 2-3 weeks. The vast majority of building work takes place in the factory, meaning that you’ll be able to relax at home in peace and quiet. For most people this stage of the loft build means dust, disruption, and the relaxing sound of power tools!

Step 4

Ahead of your loft’s delivery date, our team visit your home to prepare it for the arrival of the modules. Once your roof is removed, it is sealed and waterproofed until the loft arrives, which is delivered and lowered into place in just one day.

Step 5

After the delivery, our team will install the stairs, connect the utilities, plaster and add all the finishing touches. In as little as 14 days, your loft will be a fully decorated, fully functional part of your home.
