Loft Conversions and House Extensions in Richmond

Why consider a loft conversion or house extension in Richmond?

At The Market Design and Build, we prefer moving up to moving in! In case you need additional space for living or a new bedroom for an extra family member, a loft conversion or home extension could be the right solution for you. Your dream home in south-west London could be the one you live in now!

What types of loft conversions in Richmond are available?

It’s understandable that different houses, different preferences, and different visions require different resolutions. So, we are here to offer you any solution you can dream of. Of course, you may have dreams too big for your plot or your budget but we will do our best to ensure that your house is as close to your perfect home as you can get.

We can build any type of loft conversion for you, including the most popular 3:

  • The rear dormer, which extends into a box from a sloped roof.
  • The Velux conversion, in which we retain the shape of your existing loft roof and install Velux windows into the roof space.
  • The hip-to-gable conversion, extending your floor and ceiling space by replacing a sloped hip roof with a standard flat gable roof.

We will make sure you understand which loft conversion works for you the best, so we can ensure the conversion you get is the one that creates your dream loft.

Will I need planning permission to convert my loft in Richmond?

You should know that loft conversions are considered ‘permitted development’. So, you probably will not need permission beforehand. But it’s a good idea to check prior to making any changes to your loft, of course we are on hand to help you fully with this process.

What about adding value to my home in Richmond? Is it worthwhile?”

It surely is! An extension or a loft conversion is a perfect choice for you for 2 simple reasons: it’s quick and cost-effective at the same time. Perfectly constructed loft conversion or house extension may add up to 20% value to your house or even more in some cases so it may be the perfect time for you to invest in your home.

We aim to be with you in every step of the way to take you through the loft conversion process. There will be no stress for you as we create the initial design based on your needs, desires, and budget.

What types of house extension are available?

As the best all round builders and designers around we can create any extension you can dream of. Just get in touch and we can talk about your wishes and how our solutions can address any problems you may foresee.

Some of the most popular extensions our top-quality and knowledgeable team will help you to create are: 

Side return extensions – are the infill of the passage to the rear and the side of your property. This infill can make use of disused space and leave room for a great kitchen extension or an expansion of your living space.

Single and double-storey extensions – are perfect when you want to expand your property into your garden. It also offers a great solution to properties that have no side return, like terraced houses.

Wrap-around extensions – combine both a rear extension and a side return. It creates an L-shaped space, which can completely transform the living space you have.

About Richmond

Richmond is uniquely located on both sides of the River Thames and is renowned as one of the safest and most desirable places to live in London. For six consecutive years, an annual Rightmove study has named Richmond the happiest place to live in the city. With its vast parklands, easy access to central London, and celebrity residents, it’s no wonder Richmond’s housing market is quite exclusive, with average house prices around £869,864—nearly 30% above the London average but despite the high property prices, rent remains relatively affordable compared to some areas of London.

Richmond boasts many open spaces, including the famous Richmond Park, a weekend haven for joggers, cyclists, and dog walkers. The area’s low crime rate, at 62 crimes per 1,000 residents is 41% below the London average which adds to its obvious appeal. Commuters benefit from fast train services to Waterloo, making travel to central London convenient.

As you enjoy all the benefits of Richmond why not think about expanding your living space with a loft conversion or house extension.
