Do you have a growing family competing for limited space? Have you started doing more work from home and need a quiet place to concentrate? Whatever your own specific circumstances, you’re not alone when it comes to wanting more living space. However, with increasing uncertainty in the housing market and the wider economy, there’s never been a better time to follow the ‘improve, don’t move’ mantra. At Capital Lofts Ltd, our loft conversions create all the additional space you need.
Based in Horsham, our building company covers locations in East and West Sussex, Surrey, Kent and South London. From Epsom to Surbiton, and from Brighton to Croydon, We are the trusted builders for discerning homeowners across the region.
When was the last time you went up in your loft? If you currently use it for storing old toys, photos, clothes and Christmas decorations, our building company can transform it into a new room tailored to your lifestyle requirements and design aspirations.
If you’ve already found your dream home, a loft conversion delivers multiple far-reaching benefits. By staying put, you avoid the emotional upheaval of moving out of a much-loved home and neighbourhood. This means you can also retain your connections with family, friends and the wider community.
If you have kids in school, you don’t have to move them to a new one. You can stay inside a desirable school catchment zone too.
While loft conversions are a sizeable upfront investment, that money stays locked up in your property. In fact, conversions completed by skilled builders can increase your home’s market value by as much as 20% to 25%.
When you move, you not only take on the responsibility of a larger mortgage, you also lose a significant amount of money on removal costs and stamp duty.

Loft Conversions | Finding the Right Style
The type of home you own will dictate the kinds of conversion you can choose. Conversions come in 4 main designs, and our builders excel at them all.
Rooflight Conversions – With little by way of structural changes, this is the simplest and cheapest solution. Our team installs rooflights into the slope of your existing roof. This turns your dark, musty loft into a bright, vibrant space.
Our building company can then reinforce the floors, add insulation and carry out plumbing and electrical work – if needed – to create new living space with a fast turnaround.
Dormer Conversions – From Epsom to Surbiton to Sevenoaks, these loft conversions are the most popular style in the UK. Our builders construct a box-like extension that rises vertically out of your current roof. This creates a new room with ample floor space and a horizontal ceiling.
Externally, you can choose between flat-roofed and gabled dormers.
Hip-to-Gable Conversions – This design is perfect for end-of-terrace, semi-detached and detached properties. The process involves removing one or more slants at the side of your roof. We then extend the exterior wall up to meet the restructured roof at a right angle.
With these loft conversions, our building company creates significant headroom and floorspace.
Mansard Conversions – Constructed at the rear of properties in South East locations like Epsom and Surbiton, our builders extend the roof backward. This creates a new flat roof complete with a raised back wall. This new wall slopes inward at a 72 degree angle.
This process involves significant building work to restructure the roof.
