These guys are real class act. We hired them to put together some architectural plans for an extension and have now engaged them to do the works, which they've nearly completed. They have been exceptionally attentive and conscientious all the way through. They have really given us the benefit of their experi2nce and advised us in options throughout. Their communication is excellent and they deliver on what they promise. Very impressed with their work.

Hi Nikesh and team - I have finally found the time to write my review for you!I discovered Nikesh on Check a Trade, after a number of phone calls, site visits and even visiting one of his on going projects - we were happy and Nikesh and his team came on board our house renovation project. We liked Nikesh, a genuine guy, his reasonable pricing and knowledge and even his vision on how to place everything together was what made us select him over many other builders we received quotes from. Being our first major renovation we were nervous and apprehensive, but Nikesh was always friendly, on hand to answer questions (many many questions!) and had lots of knowledge. Reassuring! The project went very well, Nikesh and his team worked around the clock to get things completed, building us an extension with skylights, tiling and fitting two bathrooms, removing a backdoor and bricking it up (choosing a good brick match too!) He also worked across the whole house replumbing fit and plastering. He was always full of lovely ideas - often laughing at our rather adventurous colour schemes and 'shabbysheek' style! We both decided the yellow radiator was a fab choice. ;)I really appreciate the dedication Nikesh gave us, always at the end of the phone and his team are all very hard working and friendly, making me laugh all the time! We will be following up with further imagery of the house once it is completely finished, I will upload some shots of some of the works carried out.I definitely recommend using Atomic Build for whatever works you would like carried out, it can be a daunting process selecting somebody to come on board, but we had loads of fun working together, thank you so much.

Very pleasant quotation experience.My wife and I used Atomic Build to quote on a renovation of a house we were going to buy. Nikesh was thorough, professional and extremely pleasant to communicate with. He delivered a detailed quotation underatanding all our needs, offering some brilliant suggestions. He arranged a site visit for a project Atomic Build were near completing, so we were able to see the quality of the work. It was of a very high standard and Nikesh informed us they had completed on schedule and within budget. Nikesh and the team were completely on top of all the Building Regulations and they also have a Structural Engineer and Design team. It was perfect for us as it takes the stress of managing the project out of our hands. Will definitely go back to Atomic Build when the house purchase is complete.

We worked with Nikesh and his Architect Jhonny Silva on our house extension and remodelling project. Sadly due to COVID-19 we weren’t able to carry out the extension project in 2020 however they helped us in seeking our planning permissions much sooner that what we anticipated. They also assisted us in interior remodelling and Nikesh has been an amazing support. We were quiet clueless stepping into such massive project and Nikesh has been a Pillar of support for us from the very beginning. He always made himself available to discuss all details big or small. They’ve been absolute amazing !

We appointed Atomic Build Ltd to do our kitchen extension , loft conversion and bathroom renovation after a friend recommendation. We were impressed with the work quality and good value for what you pay. They have a invaluable design team which can help even if they did not do your planning application as some things are more practical on site. I can recommend them to anyone looking a practical loft conversion.

We engaged Atomic Build to carry out an external insulation render project at our property. The quote was comprehensive and competitive. Nikesh was helpful with all the admin required to get the project started such as arranging the scaffold license and communication was excellent throughout. We are very pleased with the outcome - the render has transformed the way the house looks and is making a difference already in the saving on heating. Overall the whole experience was the best we’ve had with any builders.

What can I say! We are over the moon with Nikesh and his team! From day one the amount of effort put in has been outstanding. We came across Atomic on checkatrader , I think we stumbled on a real gem! The Atomic team have done our plastering , fitted windows , bricked up a door and the foundations work for our 3 metre extension so far of our project. We uncovered a variety of issues with pipes within the foundations, Nikesh was always extremely helpful, resourceful and patience with me. I highly recommend the guys , they are great fun on site but also professional and knowledgeable. I hope we can work together on future projects!

One of the best builders in London. Highly recommend. We had a full garage conversation, heating replacement works and flooring works which turned out very satisfactory once completed. Competitive on price, someone you can trust, polite and completes the job what ever it takes. I already recommended to many of my friends and they are happy too. Best thing I like about the company is they are well managed and forward thinkers. Their recommendation on my project saved me money on areas where I should not spend and tips on areas that are worth spending.

Atomic Build started with obtaining the planning permission and did our structural calculation for the rear extension. They then did our loft coversion, rear extension and full interior refurbishment. We are very happy overall with the service and how everything was managed. The project took a little longer than expected, but we can't complain much as the end finishing/attention to detail is very good and well worth the wait. I would highly recommend this company as not only do they provide a brilliant service start to finish, they are part of Confederation of roofing contractors, FMB (Federation of Master Builders) and Trust Mark. And as such we received the full 10 years insurance backed guarantee for our works through FMB and had peace of mind knowing their work would not cut any corners.

Dormer Loft Conversions In London

Do you need more space in your home? Or are you a property developer looking to maximise your ROI? Dormer loft conversions offer a practical and contemporary way to maximise the space of a property by building into the existing roof space. Adding both extra space and value onto your home, this popular form of renovation can transform your living space with minimal hassle compared with other extension types. 

What Is A Dormer Loft Conversion?

While extensions are a common addition to homes including within loft spaces, what most people don’t release is that there are many different types of loft conversions available. One of the most modern and popular types being a dormer loft conversion. A dormer loft conversion is a structural extension that sits on the roof of your home. There are two main types of dormer loft conversions known as a pitched roof dormer or a flat roof dormer. 

Pitched Roof Dormer

Pitched Roof Dormer

A pitched roof dormer can be designed to fit all house styles but is typically used on bungalows or houses that have a hipped roof. As hipped roofs have a sharp slant, this reduces the amount of space available in the loft. Pitched roof conversions work with your existing space to create more headroom. The roof of the conversion is angled which provides additional ceiling height compared with a flat roof. Though, the biggest benefit is the amount of light pitched roof dormers let into the room. This is especially the case in bungalows that may lack any natural light in the roof space. Once completed, roof tiles are added to give an aesthetically pleasing result. 

Flat Roof Dormer


Flat Roof DormerA flat roof dormer is the most cost-effective way to add space and usability to your loft space. This style of loft conversion type adds a boxed shaped extension onto the top of your home. As the name suggests, the roof sits flat as opposed to being sloped. The design of a flat roof dormer conversion can be perfectly tailored to fit your desired layout and needs. Most commonly, flat roof dormers feature large windows on the exterior wall to allow natural light to flood the roof space. The exterior walls can also be finished in a range of cladding and rendering styles. 

Why London Homeowners Are Converting Their Loft Spaces

Did you know that in some areas of London, as many as 4 in 10 homes have had a loft conversion? As one of the most expensive places to live in the world, property in London comes at a premium. This is before the cost of selling your property is factored in. As a result, Londoners are looking for alternate ways to maximise the space they have in their homes without having to move, most notably through loft extensions. 

Unlike traditional extensions on the side of your home, loft extensions don’t take up your precious outdoor space, which in London tends to be on the smaller side anyway. Instead, loft extensions quite literally work with what you have to extend outwards, but from above your home as opposed to at ground level. For Londoners, loft conversions offer a cost-effective way to add space and value to their homes with minimal fuss compared to other extension types or even relocation. 

The Benefits Of A Loft Conversion

  • You gain more space without having to move house
  • Loft conversions can add up to 24.5% more onto the value of your London property
  • Building into the loft allows you to utilise your property to its entirety
  • Minimal disruption compared to other extension options
  • Allows you to modernise your home
  • Can include custom features
  • The option of adding a balcony

What’s Involved In A Loft Conversion

Loft Conversion

In any building project, the first step is to arrange for a site meeting with your contractor so they can ascertain the scope of the build. Here you can discuss your requirements in detail, working with your contractor to determine the best outcome for your property, needs and budget. From there, a detailed plan of action will be put in place before the building work commences. 

During the building stage, your chosen loft conversion will be installed to your desired specifications in line with health and safety regulations. The process will involve extending into your loft and could also involve other changes to accommodate your new loft space, as discussed in the site meeting. For example, the installation of a Juliette balcony, Velux windows or other custom features. 

The length of time from start until completion will depend on the scope of the project. However, an estimated timeframe will be given before work starts. Once the building work is completed, the work will be signed off and you can then use your new loft space as intended.

Dormer Conversion Custom Features 

No two homes are the same, so why should your dormer loft conversion be? As well as choosing the type of loft conversion that would work best for your property, it’s also possible to create several outcomes within the layout and finish of the project too. 

Depending on the size of your loft it could be possible to create several rooms such as bedrooms and bathrooms. Or you could keep it open pln to create a large fitness studio or home office. By combining our expertise with your vision, we can work with you to create your dream loft conversion. 

For the finishing touches, we can install bespoke windows, balconies and a range of other custom features. All of which will be in keeping with the rest of your property to ensure a sleek, high-spec finish throughout. 

To discuss custom features in detail, please contact us to arrange your free site visit. Alternatively, check out our brochure to give you some ideas about the types of finishes that can be achieved. 

Dormer Loft Conversion FAQs

Loft ExtensionWhen it comes to dormer loft conversions in London, we know you’re bound to have a lot of questions. As well as consulting our brochure, you can find the answers to some of our most popular customer queries below:

What types of housing are dormer loft conversions suitable for?

Most types of housing including detached, semi-detached, terraced and end of terrace are suitable for dormer loft conversions. In some cases, this can include flats too. 

What makes a house unsuitable for a dormer loft conversion is mostly low ceiling heights. A distance of 2.2 meters is required between the floor joists to the highest point, to ensure an adequate ceiling height. However, if the distance is shorter than this it’s sometimes possible to come up with an alternate solution. 

Will I need planning permission?

While most loft conversions don’t require planning permission, it can sometimes be necessary depending on the scope of the build or if you live in a conversation area. Luckily, here at Atomic Build, we handle all aspects of the project for you including planning approval. Though this may not be the case if your dormer loft conversion is being handled by another company. So be sure to ask plenty of questions with the firm who you choose for the job. 

How much do dormer loft conversions cost?

No two projects are the same, so unless we know what we are dealing with we can’t be specific. However, we are more than happy to come and give you a free quote to determine the cost for your dormer loft extension. 

Factors that influence the cost include the type of conversion, the scope of the project (i.e, some clients simply extend the room whereas others add bedrooms, ensuites etc) and the spec of the finish. 

I live in a conversation area. Can I still have a loft conversion?

London has a total of 27 conservation areas. If you live in a conversation area, the type of work you are allowed to carry out on your home is subject to strict criteria to preserve the character of the building. It is sometimes possible to work around conversation properties with the right approach. We would be happy to look at this in further detail for you.

Which areas of London does Atomic Build do loft conversions in? 

Balham, Brentford, Ealing, Epsom, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Kensington & Chelsea, Pinner, Richmond, Ruislip, Stanmore, Teddington, TwickenhamUxbridge and greater London.
