Frequently Asked Questions About Home Renovations


Making the decision and getting started on improving your home can seem like a big undertaking. But the more you know what to expect, the more you realise it’s simpler than you feared. Below are answers to the most commonly asked questions and FAQs we get from clients about their home renovation plans, providing you with valuable insights and guidance to ensure a successful and stress-free remodeling experience.

Some of Our Top FAQ and cost breakdown inquiries.

How Much Will It Cost?

The cost of any renovation or extension will depend on how extensive (or not) the job is. We prepare an accurate quote for you, so you know how much the work will cost. In general, costs will depend on a number of factors, including:

  • The type and size of conversion or extension you want.
  • The size of your property.
  • The type of house you own.
  • Any building regulations placed on your home – for example, if your property is a listed building or you live in a conservation area.
  • Any additional installations or fixtures you would like to include.
  • Whether you need planning permission.

Will I Need Planning Permission?

Planning permission may be required, depending on what you are changing in your home. For example, where the loft or kitchen conversion exceeds 50 cubic metres, if you live in a listed property or a conservation area, or whether you or a previous owner have previously extended or altered the property amongst others. We will advise you whether you need to secure planning permission during our initial consultation.

Is The Work Guaranteed?

Yes. We offer a 10-year warranty on all the work that we do, so you know that you have made a reliable, long-term investment.

Do You Offer Plumbing, Electrical And Carpentry Services?

Yes, we do offer these services and can incorporate them into a tailored quote.

Does Iloft Conversions Work In My Area?

We are based in Stratford and cover most areas across North and East London.

How Long Will The Work Take?

This will depend on what you are having done. We will give you a more accurate quote once we have talked through with you what you are looking to do and discussed all the available options. This way you will have a clear idea of timeframes.

Can I Continue To Live In The Property During The Work?

Usually, yes. Our construction team minimises noise, debris and disturbance as far as possible, enabling you to continue to live in the house. With extensions, much of the work can be undertaken from the outside using scaffolding along the exterior of your home to further reduce disruption.

Do I Need Drawings And Plans?

Our construction specialists work with established, experienced architects who will prepare the necessary drawings and plans for your renovation. However, if you have your own preferred architect, we will gladly accommodate this.

Do You Also Decorate?

Yes. We can arrange to decorate your conversion or extension to your bespoke requirements. Simply let us know what you have in mind and we can include it in your quote.

We recently had our kitchen extension done by this company, and we couldn't be happier with the results. The attention to detail, craftsmanship, and professionalism exceeded our expectations. Our only regret is not discovering them five years ago when we refurbished our entire house. Highly recommend their services for any home improvement project! Elvis, the director played an amazing role in ensuring the success of our kitchen extension. His meticulous attention to detail, daily presence on-site, and proactive suggestions significantly enhanced the overall outcome. His dedication to making our extension not only functional but aesthetically pleasing was truly commendable. We appreciate the collaborative approach and the positive impact Elvis had on the project. The entire team at iloft, from carpenters to electricians and painters, showcased exceptional skills, and efficiency. The project timeline was strictly respected. We're not only 100% satisfied with the results but also enthusiastic about working with iloft again in the future. We've already begun recommending them to our friends. A heartfelt thank you to the entire team for their amazing job! We couldn’t be happier!

We have recently used Iloft Conversions for our house extension and refurbishment of the first floor and loft. We have found them very professional in their approach especially in regards to work quality and time management. Most importantly they have the right workmen in place to carry out the relevant tasks. Moreover they maintain effective communication channels with the house owners, which helps in getting things right first time. We are very happy to recommend them to anyone due to their immaculate services and professionalism. Thank you. Kind regards, Mansoor

We got our loft and kitchen extended by iLoft. The initial pricing was detailed and though and we knew what was in-scope and out. Super nice people to work with and whilst everything wasn't perfect they were more than happy to rectify any issues we had at no extra cost. Post customer service has been excellent, would recommend them all day long.

We used Iloft to do our loft conversion and an extension at the back. I was so impressed with Elvis and his team. They were always professional, on time, clean, trustworthy, dedicated and I couldn't be happier with their work. I was so happy with the final result that we decided to ask them to refurbish the rest of the house. I've been recommending them to everyone I know.

We had the pleasure of working with iLoft Conversions for our loft conversion, kitchen and porch extensions, and we couldn't be happier with the results. From the initial consultation to the final touches, the entire process was smooth and efficient. The team at iLoft Conversions demonstrated a high level of professionalism and expertise throughout the project. They were attentive to our needs and preferences, offering valuable insights and suggestions that enhanced the overall design. The loft conversion they performed has transformed my home, providing much-needed additional space while seamlessly blending with the existing architecture. The kitchen and porch extension, on the other hand, has not only expanded the cooking area but also brought a fresh, modern appeal to the heart of our home. The craftsmanship and attention to detail displayed by the iLoft Conversions team were exceptional. They used quality materials and executed the work with precision, resulting in a beautiful and functional living space. Furthermore, the project was completed within the agreed-upon timeline and budget, which we truly appreciated. We highly recommend iLoft Conversions to anyone seeking reliable and skilled professionals for their home improvement projects. Their dedication to excellence and commitment to customer satisfaction are truly commendable. Thank you, iLoft Conversions, for a job well done!

We had a very good experience of working with iLoft. The conversion was particularly challenging as the property was let out to tenants during the work. Simona and Elvis were extremely helpful in quickly sorting out any issues along the way. We are very happy with the loft. It is of good quality and has added value to our property.

When deciding on expanding and improving your home, bringing in someone who shares the same values as yourself isn’t easy. The team from iLofts gave us the confidence from day 1 that they will do their best and ensure things will be done in the right way. From start to finish, everyone who we’ve dealt with, have been professional, polite, accommodating, understanding, trustworthy and most importantly respectful. The negotiation process and pre planning was simple, the contract was easy to understand and they always made time to discuss things. Even if we wanted to double or triple check something, nothing was a drama. We had a loft, first floor bathroom and renovation to our hallway. From start to finish they were done in 7 weeks! Astonishing! The workers are hard working, thorough and clean. Some days they would be here for almost 12 hours! Leo & Elvis have a team to be immensely proud of. They are a family run business and we felt so comfortable with them, they became an extension to our family. The most important reason as to why I will sing their praises forever is the fact that any issue large or small which occurred, Elvis (project manager) would act on it immediately, no questions. It’s only human nature that things will crop up, but when you deal with matters with maturity and respect everything will get sorted. This is exactly the way the iLofts team conducted themselves and we had an excellent working relationship throughout. I would recommend iLofts to anyone looking to improve their home. I can’t sing their praises enough! Don’t hesitate!

This is the second time we have used Iloft. They did a fantastic job on our double story extension two years ago and now they have done a wonderful job completing our loft. Elvis and the team are incredibly hard working and give their all to complete the job well and on time (infact earlier than expected). Their mission is to ensure we are happy with our house and will always offer helpful suggestions and expert guidance on how to maximise and utilise the space. If we have any queries or issues these are dealt with immediately. They take great pride in what they do and this shows in their work ethic and the final product. We will definitely use them again (for a third time) for our next project. We have recommended them to many friends because of the positive experiences we have had with both of our renovations. Thank you Leo, Elvis, Simona and the team for making our house a beautiful home.
