To us, every loft is unique

Guaranteed fixed price

Built on our discerning approach to design

Our history

Founded in 1988 by Chris Bonsey, The Loft Conversion Company has been operating from its offices, a converted stable loft in Westcott, since 1990. We've been specialising in loft conversions throughout Surrey and bordering county towns ever since.

Despite our success in the market place we are, and intend to remain, a tightly knit, locally based family company. And we only employ qualified, experienced craftsmen and tradesmen, many of whom have been with us for over 20 years.

The company's distinctive structure and our wealth of experience means your loft conversion will be very straightforward.

Meet the team

I feel very proud and honoured to have such a wonderful group of people around me.  The success of the Loft Conversion Company and the ethos that underpins it are very much attributed to you.

Our path lies in sticking to our original principles - making sure that we not only listen to our clients, but we really hear what they are saying. I believe that if we never lose sight of our passion for good service, honesty and integrity this company will have a long and successful future.

The value of good design and attention to detail are essential ingredients to delivering a product we can be truly proud of and this must never be devalued.

I'd like to thank you all for your loyalty and dedication. It is the foundation of the company and one which enables my children, Chloe and Charles to help build our futures together.

Thank you.

Company services

Our approach is based on establishing a clear brief through close liaison with you from the very beginning of your loft project. And design is at the core of what we do. You'll get a complete package including:

  • Design
  • Project management
  • Site surveys
  • Regular site meetings
  • Sourcing
  • Architectural plans
  • Planning permission applications
  • Permitted development applications
  • Building regulations
  • Party Wall responsibility guide
  • Local authority permits (for skips & waste disposal containers)
  • Part-build options

How we work

We deal with everything – from planning and building consents to the finished product, plus plumbing and electrics – all ready for you to decorate. And there’s a Part Build Option if you want to get hands on.

Keeping you in the loop

You’ll meet your on site Team Leader at the Pre-Start Meeting. We’ll establish house rules, discuss logistics, run through the plans, specifications, design detail, staging, sourcing - and anything else that’s on your mind. We want to make sure that what we think we are doing for our fixed price is actaully what you want - we do not make assumptions. Once work starts you’ll get regular updates about what’s happening.

Less stress

Everything is planned in advance. We want you to be excited about your project, to enjoy the fun of the build. And when we're done you'll get Approved Plans, Planning, Building and Part P Electrical Compliance Certificates plus our Five Year Guarantee.
