With a Loft Conversion from Frames Conservatories Direct the sky really is the limit

Planning and designing the right solution for transforming the way you use your home is one of our biggest passions.

Loft conversions are a brilliant way of creating a functional living space in a room that already exists. Lofts are often the forgotten part of a house, storing old junk and Christmas decorations. However, with the right building work, lofts can be transformed in to a much-needed bedroom, lounge area or office.

Most houses have a loft area that can be utilised. That’s why an attic conversion is one of our most popular requests.

When we visit your property to assess the space in the loft. This conversion assessment will work out the area of workable space and considers a few things including:

Obstacles – we make note of any structures or obstacles, including tanks and chimney stacks.

Head height – there will be very low areas within the room owing to the shape of the roof. However, there should be a useable space with a height of over 2.2m.

Roof structure type – the two most common structures in British house design are framed and fink truss section. Framed roofs are often found in houses built before 1960. Framed roofs are the best types of roof from loft conversions, and only require a bit of added support. Any fink truss-roof houses require far greater structural support, given the engineered design of a fink truss they tend to be thinner and more lightweight. Therefore fink truss conversions tend to be more a little more expensive.

Stairs – A steady staircase is necessary for a loft conversion, as there will be more of a steeper incline than an ordinary staircase. There are various building regs for safe staircases that our designers can help with the calculations required to ensure your project passes all external scrutiny.

Windows – dormers and skylights must be considered when planning a loft conversion. These areas are ideal for gaining as much natural light as possible.

Fire safety – when opening up a loft to join the main body of the house, fire safeguards must be put in place. Our team will be able to manage this, but items like an extra fire alarm, and escape window and a fire-resistant floor are all mandatory.

One of the good things about picking a reputable loft conversion company like Frames Conservatories Direct is that you get unbeatable service, as well as building and health and safety know-how. You can relax, safe in the knowledge that your conversion will be carried out to the very highest standards.

Building a loft conversion is not only an investment but, if done well, a valuable asset. We want to be completely sure that what we build exceeds your expectations.

A. Fensa is a Competent Persons Scheme. When replacing windows, doors and roof lights in dwellings in England and Wales, homeowners must comply with current thermal performance and Building Regulation standards and ensure they get a certificate from a Competent Person scheme or Local Authority Building Control. Fensa is one of those schemes. We belong to the Network Veka Competent Person’s Scheme as we felt it offered us and our customers more. As a Network Veka installer we undergo rigorous testing and training and are regularly audited. With a Network Veka installer you can be sure that our history, working practices and finances have been thoroughly checked so you will be dealing with only the best and most professional companies. With Network Veka you will be issued with a 10 year insurance backed guarantee.

A. Our sales team do not employ high pressure sales tactics. There is no phone calls to managers, no 50% off discounts for a signature today. Just straight talking, straight forward advice.

A. Windows & Doors – generally you do not require planning permission unless you are significantly changing the appearance of the house with the new installation. The exception would be if you are installing a bay window where there wasn’t one previously or if you live in a listed building or a conservation area.

Extensions and Conservatories – as long as you meet certain criteria regarding height, position relative to the house and land area, an extension or conservatory is generally considered permitted development not requiring planning permission. You will, however, need Building Control for a glazed extension or to put a solid roof on to an existing conservatory.

Driveways and Patios – you don’t need planning permission

Garden Walls – you only need planning permission if the wall is over 2 meters high or 1 meter high if it will be adjacent to a public footpath or highway. You would also need planning permission if either your property or the neighbouring property which the wall would provide a boundary with, is a listed building.

Don’t be put off by the Building Control/Planning Permission maze – we will handle all of that for you.

A. No, our windows are manufactured to British Standards with a kite mark accreditation to prove it. The frames are steel reinforced and fitted with high security locking systems and hinge side protectors, these fittings are standard on our windows.

A. NO, we insist on it, all our windows fitted where a means of escape should be considered are fitted with Fire Egress hinges as standard.

A. We supply 3 keys with every door lock. The locks are ultra-high security. Additional keys can be sought afterwards if needed, from specified locksmiths.

A. There isn’t one! Each conservatory is designed for you individually. It will be made to the size and the design that suits you.

A. Generally all our products are covered by a fully transferable 10 year fully inclusive guarantee for your complete peace of mind.

A. No, each job is appraised and if we can use our own specialist easy deck system we will not need to have scaffolding erected. We do not make any charge if we use our own standard access equipment as we believe it is part of the job. On average we have to scaffold approx. 1 in 15 jobs.

A. Yes, there is a specialist coating on the surface of the glass that reacts with day light, this reaction prevents anything from sticking to the glass surface and when it rains any deposit is washed off.

A. NONE, we have never taken a deposit, we don’t believe a customer should fund our business before we have actually done something for you.

A. When you are ready to get your home improvement project quoted – simply give us a call on 0800 2 800 472. One of our Sales Consultants will visit you at home to take accurate measurements and talk to you about the options available. We will provide you with a free, no obligation quote. There is no pressure, no hard sell and no discounting techniques.
