If you live in Stanmore and love the area, but find your existing home too cramped, you may consider moving – but find it hard to find a larger home which you can afford. Property prices in all parts of the capital have risen in recent years, making many people reluctant to move, so they often decide to explore the options for carrying out house extensions instead. Whether you have a terraced home, detached house or 1930s semi, often a loft conversion is the best option.

Modern Attics, based locally in north west London, will look at your property and advise you on whether it is possible to carry out a conversion. A suitable option for a terraced house loft conversion could be a dormer extension, which projects from a sloping roof to create extra space. This may also be a good option for other styles of property, including period homes and bungalows. As well as dormers, we can install many other types of extension, including Mansard and hip to gable loft conversions.

If you want to create living space for grown-up children, a separate granny annexe or even a separate flat which can be let out, bringing loft space into use could be the answer.
