Loft Being Prepared For Conversion

Loft Conversion Glasgow


Thistle Landscapes & Builders is an independent company with over 40 years’ experience in the building trade.  We specialise in loft conversion in Glasgow and, like all of our building services, we are committed to providing our customers with the highest level of service possible, producing innovative, high quality loft conversion Glasgow.

From initial design, through to completion, we undertake the full scope of any loft conversion project in Glasgow, even dealing with building regulations and planning permission when required.  We know that if we create a stunning converted loft, which you and your family can enjoy for years to come, then you will recommend us to others and help us to grow our business in your area of Glasgow.

Unlike a Garage Conversion, a Loft Conversion takes place inside your home, making it important to ensure you have builders who are experienced and who you trust.  At Thistle Landscapes & Builders, we put customer satisfaction and high quality craftsmanship at the centre of our work.  We convert disused, dark lofts into bright, beautiful living spaces.  By using fully insured, fully qualified tradesmen in all aspects of our work – from plumbing to joinery and electrics, you can be sure that everything is up to code and perfectly finished.  We take pride in everything that we do, and we will work tirelessly and carefully to make sure that the whole process is as smooth as possible for you, and you end up with a new living space to enjoy.

Bedroom Loft Conversion Glasgow


A bedroom is a common use of a loft conversion Glasgow.  Expanding your home upwards tends to lend itself well to sleeping spaces rather than living rooms, but that does not mean you cannot add a big lounge, or a home office, or maybe a multi-functional space to nudge the teenagers into and let you use your other spaces again!  What you use your loft conversion for may be driven by the shape of the current area, and the available space.  Some houses are perfect for adding extra living space in the loft, others will be limited by what can be achieved.

For instance, if you would like to add an extra WC or bathroom in your loft conversion Glasgow, you need to assess the extra demand this will put on your existing heating and hot water system and whether you will need to upgrade it as well. There are lots of things to consider, but the first step is to determine if your home is a contender for a loft conversion in Glasgow.  The best way to find this out is to speak to a builder with extensive loft conversion experience, like Thistle Landscapes and Builders.  We will be able to advise if your home is suitable, then help you hire an architect or surveyor to draw up the plans, and then can carry them out to the last detail for you.

Add Value with Loft Conversion Glasgow


Adding a loft conversion is often cited in surveys as one of the best ways to add value to your property.  Recent research carried out by the Nationwide Building Society in 2016* found that a loft conversion could add up to 20% to the value of your home!  This could make a loft conversion in Glasgow an incredibly cost effective of increasing both the square footage, and the value of your property.

It’s easy to see how adding a bright, open loft conversion in Glasgow could add significant value to the resale of your home.  Including a bathroom or ensuite, an open plan design, a few windows to increase the light, and carefully decorating in bright colours will make it instantly appealing.  Or if you are converting it for yourself, it’s an investment for your own enjoyment that will also pay dividends in years to come!

What Adds Value To Your Home

Easy Loft Conversion Glasgow


Many of our customers say that they wish they had contacted us years ago!  Loft conversion Glasgow may seem like a daunting prospect, and researching the subject online will only confuse you further, so get in touch with a professional team like Thistle Landscapes & Builders instead.  We will guide you through the entire process, offering honest, friendly advice where we can, and recommending external help for things we cannot help with – such as funding, surveyors or interior decorators.

We will be able to quickly assess your loft and let you know if your roof space is suitable for a conversion.  We consider the head height available and the pitch angle of the roof.  All other considerations, such as the trusses above and beams below can be addressed, but the physical space is what determines what we can do and cannot do with your loft conversion in Glasgow.

A standard one room loft conversion cost includes reinforcing the floor, adding insulation, putting in skylights, adding a staircase, and putting in electrics, lighting and heating.  As a fully insured, professional building company, we will also ensure that fire safety measures are added to comply with building regulations.  If you are adding dormer windows (which protrude out of the roof rather than simply cut into the sloping roof), or a bathroom, or multiple rooms, this will increase the cost of the loft conversion for you.  We can quote for multiple options in order to help you to decide which route best suits your budget and requirements.

Once we have the go ahead, we carry the whole project from concept to delivery, turning a daunting idea into an easy loft conversion in Glasgow from Thistle.
