Homeowners who need extra room can look to the attic instead of adding an extension, which tends to take away from the garden. Loft conversions simply make the best of what you have, and by choosing the right team, you can ensure this happens at a cost-effective price.
Conversions come in numerous forms, and the perfect style will vary based on what you hope to accomplish and the challenges of the property. Ribble Valley Joinery Services Ltd will help you decide on the best option before managing the entire project from concept to completion.
Popular in Preston, Lancashire and the surrounding regions, dormer conversions add a box-like feature that protrudes from the roof, achieving a vertical wall with elegant windows. This adds more floor space and headroom while typically skipping the need for planning permission so that you can enjoy a new bedroom, office, study or chillout area without fuss.
This in-depth type of conversion achieves the most space and involved large-scale restructuring of the roof itself. In turn, it often requires planning permission. Great for building a double bedroom complete with en-suite fixtures, this option is popular for those who want a huge increase in space.
Sloping roofs can make the loft feel too cramped. As a result, you’re less likely to make use of it. Hip-to-gable loft conversions turn these slopes skyward, meaning you won’t knock your head whenever you enter the attic. Naturally, this makes for a more welcoming environment.
Save money and labour with rooflight installations. Velux windows form a brighter space for long-term use, granting a place to stargaze late at night. Our team performs the joinery services, structural care and decorative work required – leaving you with a dazzling loft that complies with building regulations.

Most garages in the UK end up as storage spaces for clutter and, with some homes having driveways too, they rarely get used for their intended purpose. Many homeowners in Preston and the surrounding areas are now having their garages converted to gain extra living or workspace. Often used as extensions to kitchens and as utility rooms, or as home offices, gyms and studios, garage conversions have become a very popular way to make Lancashire homes more spacious.
Importantly, much like house extensions and loft conversions, a garage conversion will add value to your home.
If you choose to have the job completed by a reputable company like Ribble Valley Joinery Services Ltd, your return on investment (ROI) could be as much as 20%. If you opt to use one of our garage conversions as a bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, your ROI will be at the top end, but even a home office or a playroom will add around 10% to resale value.
If you have plans to convert a garage, make sure that the expected ROI is higher than what you need to spend. Just remember to factor in that should you end up moving to a bigger home in the Preston area instead of adding space to the one you own already, you will most likely end up with a much bigger mortgage and a sizeable bill from a removal company.
The benefits of a garage conversion include:
A typical garage conversion in the UK can cost anywhere between £10,000and £20,000 so it might be worth checking with local estate agents in the area to see how much homes with converted garages are currently fetching on the market.
In addition to Preston, Ribble Valley Joinery Services Ltd can convert garages in Blackburn, Bolton, Chorley, Clitheroe, Garstang, Longridge and all surrounding Lancashire areas.
