Loft Conversion – 11 The Chase, Stanmore HA7

How homeowners can maximise the benefits of home renovations and bank the savings.

Our client was very keen on maximising the opportunities to renovate different parts of their property at the same time as having a loft conversion built.

Hip to Gable Loft Conversion on a Semi Detatched Home

Our original brief for this large 3 bedroomed semi was to build a hip to gable loft conversion with a rear dormer,glass balcony and aluminium ORIGIN French doors and windows in anthracite grey with fixed side panels and integral blinds.

The home owner intends to use the loft space as a gymnasium with shower room.

Our client has also asked us to complete additional works which will utilise the same scaffolding to complete a whole main roof renewal (and at the same time save the client money) and whilst we have the carpenters on site we will also be fitting new fire rated glass doors throughout the house.
