Loft Type: Dormer Loft

About The Project
Recently, the DJ Moore Lofts team were in Clapham to help a lovely family expand their home with a loft conversion. They wanted to gain an extra bedroom, and had already planned and designed a potential layout. All they needed was a professional, well-organised company to come in and create the brand new master bedroom and ensuite they envisioned.
What We Did:
With the help of our structural engineers, we were able to help achieve the extra necessities to start the conversion for the client. This included working alongside our building control team to ensure the potential build met with the correct building regulations, of which they did.
We initiated the build by having professionals erect scaffolding at the rear of the home; this was to enable our team to access the loft. This meant the team had minimum contact with the clients, which was essential due to the outbreak of coronavirus, putting both the client and our team at ease. We also took extra precautions, including providing additional resources to the team to ensure regular deep cleaning took place during the build, as well as hand sanitisers being provided to all DJ Moore Lofts team members.
The structural stage was fully completed within the first week of the build and gave the client a first-hand view of the created space they had to work with. The clients were thrilled with the space, and remarked that it was more than what they imagined.
The finished rear dormer came together perfectly. Styled in Iron grey cladding, the finish seamlessly worked well alongside the anthracite-coloured Juliet balcony. When completed, the loft looked stunning and is one of Director Dan’s favourite styles of dormer loft conversions.
During the build, the client had mentioned that they wanted to fit extra wardrobes into the finished loft. We happily supplied a design, of which the client fell in love with. We then created and installed the fully bespoke mirrored wardrobes into their design.
Overall, the dormer loft conversion was completed inside the 5-week deadline given to the client, which allowed them to kickstart the decorating early. All in all, we have completed a gorgeous loft conversion which the client loved.
What The Client Said
" From start to finish we found this company to be absolutely first class!
We arranged for three quotes from loft conversion companies to build us a dormer conversion for a master bedroom and en suite. Dan came round and confirmed the plans we already had were suitable and Dan was helpful, enthusiastic and likeable from the start. We received a quote soon afterwards, which was competitive and was laid out in such a way that it was easy to understand. Having confirmed we’d like them to do the job we received a welcome pack which was full of useful information and even laid out a plan of what would be done each week. Dan came round for a pre-start meeting and explained that the disruption would be kept to a minimum and explained how it would be done – the disruption was one of the fears that we had.
Once the job started, we had an excellent and likeable team of three builders who built the dormer construction. Communication was brilliant and we found it amazing that the construction was up and the staircase was in after just over 2 weeks! We also met with the plumber, electrician, carpenter and plasterer and each and every one of them was friendly, trustworthy and polite and it has to be said the standard of the work is absolutely first class!
We were told the job would be completed in 5 to 6 weeks and it was completed in 5, which included changing all of our internal doors! This was one of the ‘extras’ we added as the build was ongoing. We were told how much things would cost, and it was all itemised, accurate and easy to understand on the final invoice.
We are so pleased with the whole job. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dan and his team and, in fact, we already have done several times over!"
