Converting your loft adds a lot of value and usability

The possibilities truly are endless. Your dream home is just a call away. Don't hesitate.

Your house doesn't Feel big enough anymore?

We recognise that a loft conversion is one of the biggest investments that you can make with your home which is why we want to put your mind at rest that we'll be handle every stage with professionalism and efficiency.

We have put together this helpful guide so that you can understand the process of loft conversion.

Day 1

 

The first day will consist of erecting scaffolding, making the loft a safe environment and transporting materials into the roof space area.

 

Week 1

 

The RSJ steels are installed, and the new floor joists placed into position.

 

Week 2/3

 

Structural changes to the roof shape – dormers. The first inspection from Building Control will now take place.

 

Week 4/5

 

The staircase is fitted fourth week. This is always an exciting stage because your new upper floor can be easily accessed. Once the staircase is safely installed the plumbing and electrical first fixing stages begin. To comply with current Building Regulations an electrical completion (Part P) certificate will be issued.

Importance of Quality

Week 6/7

 

Floorboards are securely fixed, and the internal wall positions are set out and constructed. Rigid insulation is fitted between the rafters. At this stage the Building Inspector must approve the insulation. Once approved the plasterboard is securely fixed to the interior walls and ceilings followed shortly with skim coat of plaster.

 

Week 8/9

 

The installation of the bath/shower suite, tiling, skirting boards, architraves, fire doors, light switches, sockets & radiators, etc. are the final items installed before completion.

 

Finals

 

Before handover we carry out electrical testing, smoke detector test, plumbing test, and a general overview of the entire conversion to check for snags like doors/ windows are operating properly.  There will also be a final inspection of the roof before dismantling the scaffolding.

On rare occasions and with the more complex projects it may take a little longer than scheduled, but no longer than 2 weeks after the scheduled completion date. We do our utmost best to finish on schedule.  More important to us is finishing the job to the highest standard possible and to your total satisfaction.

Care and Guarantees

After Care

 

Included in our service is an unparalleled after care package which covers every detail. If, in the unlikely event there are any snags after the handover day we will deal with it immediately.

Six months after handover day we will contact you to ask if there are any snagging issues. One year after the handover day we will contact you to ask again if there are any snagging issues, however small.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“Celino and his team were incredible. They acted quickly and professionally and the work was better than I could have imagined. The kitchen they made was installed, sealed, tiled and grouted beautifully and I continue to receive compliments. They even built my new bed, hung a large painting, hung a mirror and installed a TV bracket on top. I cannot recommend them enough. There were a couple of challenges communicating with some of his team, but Celino was always available to speak to them when needed.”

— Josh Torok

what people say

Brilliant brilliant brilliant. Celino actually made the whole experience of a kitchen renovation pleasurable. No mean feat. We now have a beautiful kitchen, paid what we believe to be a fair price and didn't have any problems along the way that Celino didn't solve fantastically. To be honest, is never use another kitchen fitter again if he was available.

Our best reference yet

 

''Celino and his team are the most professional building and maintenance firm I have ever used. Celino and his team recently rendered and painted the front of my house with superb results, I have just recently called him back in to lay a block paving at the front of my property and just like the rendering and painting, the drive looks superb. The level of craftsman ship and eye for detail that Celino and his team deploy is staggering. Celino's quoting process is also very transparent, he kept me up to date the entire way through the job and his work force worked from 08:00 until 18:00 everyday, even Saturdays! I cant recommend Celino Trades enough! I have already referred two of my friends to him and my wife's boss. I wish him every success in the future! Keep up the good work.''
