Roof Lift or Raised Roof

Thank you so much to the whole team, the change is unbelievable. We so nearly moved home, but the two extra bedrooms means we have more space for a lot less.

All roof lifts in the UK require planning permission. This is because you’re raising the overall roof ridge height, therefore it is mandatory to gain permission.

Impact On Your Home

The impact is a lot less than you might think, as you can remain living in your home, and all existing ceilings remain in tact through the process.

Build Timescales

A roof lift can vary from 3-4 weeks for a DIY/shell only lift. A full roof lift loft conversion can take a little longer and on average takes 6-8 weeks to completion.
