Loft Conversion Testimonials – What Our Clients Say


Testimonial: Nicola’s story

Please check out this fantastic video testimonial from Nicola in Friern Barnet.

Loft conversions are great for growing families as it’s often cheaper and much more convenient than moving house. Simply by increasing your living space you can change the way that you live for the better.

As Nicola says, we pride ourselves on being tidy, punctual, and seeing the job through to completion whilst keeping the client informed of all that’s going on.

Much of our work is through recommendations, so please consider sharing this video and recommending us to your friends.

Mr Austin Burda in N12

“The whole experience with Modern attics from inception to job completion was very positive I will try to summarise this below:-

February: Modern attics invited around to quote
Quote was very competitive and having seen the work done on another house on our road we decided to go ahead and use Modern Attics for our proposed Loft conversion

May: Job started
Pre-Commencement meeting with Paul and Virgil who was to be the builder in charge of the project several points were discussed relating to scaffolding and general things to think about, we were made to feel very comfortable with the whole process that was about to begin.

May-July: Job in process
Virgil and his team of builders were very knowledgeable, hardworking and respectful in regards to working in a house that was still being lived in. During the day it was mainly my wife and two small children who were at home and the builders were very good in advising at what points it would be best for my family not to be at home (opening of the ceiling/installation of the staircase was the main thing). However, for much of the job the builders had minimal impact on how my wife/children could use the house which was something my wife especially had been worrying about.

There were regular informal meetings between all parties to make sure the build was going ahead as we wanted (for example where wall partitions should go/where the lights should be put/how big the bathroom should be etc).

The finished loft conversion surpassed our expectations and after the decorators had finished my wife and myself moved up into the room that would be our new bedroom. We also decided to put both a lounge area into the room which when combined with the en-suite bathroom (with hydrotherapic bath) and an zero noise fridge would result in a living space which was everything we had dreamed about. Having lived in this space for a couple of months now I can say it is the most amazing space and every night on my return home from work I endeavour to move upstairs to the Loft space as quickly as possible. The new loft room provides a new level of relaxation after a hard day at work and just looking at the clean lines in the room, perfectly plastered walls and the view from the huge velux windows and large Juliet balcony provides a calming and soothing experience.

Comments from friends and family are always the same with words/phrases such as “beautiful”, “spacious”, “great views” with many people saying it is the best loft conversion they have seen.

In summary we are very happy to have come across Modern Attics for our Loft Conversion and their team of builders who created a Room that has changed the way we live our life’s it goes without saying that I would not hesitate to recommend them to anybody who is looking to do a loft conversion

Mrs Miller – Finchley, N3
Our house was beginning to feel a little cramped with all of us living on the first floor – my husband and I, our three kids and an au-pair. We knew the loft had potential so we called in Modern Attics to quote. They quickly came up with a proposal which avoided the need for full planning permission by utilising our permitted development allowance. They drew up all the plans, dealt with the Council, party walls and building regulations. They dealt with all the red tape very efficiently so we were confident that the work would be done in a similar manner. We were not disappointed – the building team were courteous, tidy and hard working. The disruption was kept to manageable levels and this was at its worst towards the end of the work. We are very pleased with end results. We now have a large master bedroom en-suite in the loft which we use and our kids and the au-pair now have the run of the first floor.

Mrs Hannah – Edgware, Middlesex
Once we had our third child, we knew we were going to outgrow our three bedroom semi. We thought about moving but with all the incidental costs and hassle we decided to convert the loft. We wanted to maximise the loft space as we had seen others being converted in our area – we had a full hip to gable and rear dormer in mind but we were prevented from doing this as we had already used our permitted development allowance with a previous kitchen extension. Nevertheless, Modern Attics were creative in their thinking and were able to come up with a design that passed Barnet Council’s planning requirements. The work only took about six weeks and the new room and en-suite shower room is now our eldest son’s room and everyone’s really happy that they’ve got their own rooms. And best of all we avoided all the costs and difficulties of moving and we were able to stay in area we really like.

Mr Simpson – Elstree, Herts
My family and I have moved homes every few years over the last ten years. We have now bought a detached property and have decided on a complete renovation including converting the loft and other extensions. Although the project is being handled by my team of architects, engineers, interior designers etc to advice on all aspects of the work I have consulted Modern Attics to deal specifically with the roof space. The plans are complicated but with Modern Attics expertise we have been able to design a superb living space in the loft and we will be using their tradesmen to undertake the work. I am expecting great results as their service to date has been excellent.
