Loft Conversions in Orpington Explained

At Loft Conversions Direct, we transform lofts for clients in the Orpington area. Every loft conversion is different depending on your property and, more obviously, on the design required. They do, however, tend to take on the format explained below.

We want you to have a full understanding of our work in the Orpington area and to see the benefits of loft conversions without any reservations.



Independent scaffold is erected and the existing loft hatch is sealed. This will be plastered over later. We then create an opening in the roof to access the loft. We remove the existing chimney and any tanks, if required, and receive the first lot of materials.



All load bearing steels calculated for the loft conversion are installed and internal floor joists are laid inside your Orpington home.


Plumbing and Electrical

Tanks are removed and pipes are laid if lofts are being converted for bathroom use. Electrical wiring is run through the property.


External Work

Double-glazed windows or Velux skylight windows are installed and the roofing work, including any tiling and lead work, is completed. Guttering and down pipes are attached and external walls are rendered.


Internal Work

The whole of the loft conversion for your Orpington home is insulated to comply with Building Regulations. Walls are formed, flooring is laid, stairs to the loft area are fitted, plasterboard is erected and coats of plaster are applied to boarded areas.


Further Plumbing and Electrical Work

Radiators, sanitary ware and new boilers are installed if needed. Plug sockets, extractor fans and lighting installations are connected to existing fuse board. This provides power for our loft conversions without the need for extensive electrical work inside your Orpington property.


Last Fix

Skirting is fixed throughout your new loft conversion and all doors are fitted. These are important finishing touches that set our lofts apart from others.



Everything is cleared, all scaffolding is removed and skips are removed from site. We make sure that client in Orpington are happy with the loft conversion before we leave the site or ask for the final payment.
