We live in Camberley Surrey and thanks to Loftplan we have now transformed our property.
They offered a cost-effective solution by building a beautiful loft room for us. Loftplan were recommended to us by my cousin who had a smaller loft room conversion built by them in 2013 at their house in Reading. It looked amazing and based on his experience with this company and the finished loft they designed and built for him we decided to go with them for our project. We did meet with 2 other loft conversion companies initially just to compare quotes, but Loftplan won our business not because they were the cheapest (they were in the middle of the 3 quotes obtained) but filled us with complete confidence and discussed with us very knowledgeable recommendations from the very first meeting where as the other building companies didn’t. One company was cheap and cheerful, and their finishing didn’t look great and the other company didn’t come across in the right way and kept telling us you can’t have that, you can’t do that etc. You know working with a company like that is going to be trouble from the onset.
Loftplan are the complete opposite. They are what I call a ‘YES’ company. I can honestly say from start to finish they have been the easiest building company I have worked with. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them, and they are extremely professional and respectful on site. This is important when you have a young family and people working in your living space. From the initial meeting where they do a free design and survey, right the way through to completion they filled us with total confidence with their professionalism.
The project took 11 weeks in total and the really brilliant thing is that for the first 7 weeks of this work they are working in your loft space and not having to come in to your house, so there is minimal disruption and pretty much no mess. In the last few weeks they knock through and fit a stair case. They put in a beautiful balustrade which is truly stunning. They utilized all the space very cleverly fitting storage cupboards and built in wardrobes which are hand made by their carpenter.
All our friends comment on what a beautiful room the loft is which is now the best bedroom in the house, and we use as a Master Bedroom.
We have not eaten in to any of the garden space which we would have done if we had built an extension. This being a huge compromise and at a lot more cost.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that Zoopla valued our property an extra £74,000.00 now we have the 5th Bedroom loft conversion. The conversion only cost us £45,000.00.
Our loft conversion looks stunning from the outside and from the inside, the 3 Velux windows let in so much light.
If you are like us and love your house but need that extra room without the expense of moving, then I would really consider converting the loft and Loftplan are the experts in their field. I wouldn’t go with a ‘general builder’ who might do an ok job. Go with the people that specialize in these projects that really know what they are doing and will give you piece of mind also.
Lastly, I would like to add their after sales service is also brilliant. We had a small issue with a few of the tiles and they sent someone round on the next working day to sort out the problem. That’s great service! We have recommended Loft Plan to 3 other friends all of which are over the moon with their work.
