Did you know that the cost of a loft conversion in Richmond far outweighs the benefits that of the cost of moving house? Property experts agree that a loft conversion is one of the best ways to increase your equity as it can substantially add value. If you live in a beautiful period property, a Victorian house in particular, you are no doubt keen to add value and maximise your living space.

Increase your living space as your family grows

Aloft conversion is the perfect way to add space to your home. It is often used to create an additional bedroom, an office or playroom. A beautifully designed loft conversion seamlessly expands your living space and becomes an integral part of your home. Our team of innovative architects, technicians and builders in Richmond will work closely with you to bring your vision to life.

Save time

We all know how difficult it is to find our dream home. The mere thought of viewings, surveys and buyer chains can seem daunting and time-consuming. As the needs of your family change, why not consider a loft conversion to add that space you are looking for, without the upheaval of selling your home. A loft conversion is an ideal option for a Victorian property, offering you the best of both worlds: to gain additional space without the loss of the architectural character.

At Good Design & Build we will provide you with a clear, competitive and comprehensive quote to maximise your return on investment. We understand that the prospect of embarking upon a renovation project can sound costly, complicated and time-consuming, but our team of project managers, architects, technicians, and builders will make it a seamless and a journey with fun memories. A loft conversion is a practical way to extend your living space in style. In addition, it is often the more convenient option than adding an extension which may not progress as quickly in inclement weather.

What is the average loft conversion cost in Richmond?

Cost vary according to the type of loft conversion you require and of course costing is also based on your property and its unique requirements. However, you can obtain an idea of the type of loft conversions available and the average cost below:


The most basic form of conversion is the Skylight which can cost about £ 30,000. It is very affordable because it does not alter the structure of your roof line but as a result, it does not make maximum use of your loft space. It will not require any structural changes, planning permission is not normally required which is an added plus point. Providing you have enough head height from floor joists to the bottom of the ridge beam, you can opt for a convenient skylight loft conversion.


Dormer Loft conversions are mid-range conversions being slightly pricier than Skylight but adding more potential space. Dormer loft conversion ranges from between £ 32,000and £ 50,000. It provides head height and extra room and often constructed towards the rear of the property and sometimes towards the sides. Again, unless your property is in a conservation area, planning permission is usually not required.


This can cost the most, Mansard conversions can range from £ 45,000 upwards. However, this is aesthetically pleasing whilst adding space and character to your property as well. It features a practically vertical roof enabling the maximum use of the available space within. For this conversion though planning permission is usually required.

These are some of the most popular versions of loft conversion. If, however, you are looking for something different, something unique to your property we will be happy to assist you. Please get in touch with us, at Good Design & Build, for your personal consultation and quote.
