Loft extensions are an amazing way to make use of the space you have available to you. The key though, is to make sure that you can find a loft construction company that is of the highest caliber possible. This is because of the fact that there are a lot of companies out there that are really going to be sub-par and that could really do a number on your house if you aren’t careful. Here are a few tips for finding good attic conversions companies in the London area.
The important thing is to make sure you look for reviews to the companies that you’re deciding on. You really don’t want to just go straight with a company without checking it out first. You won’t know very much about the company otherwise. They could have next to no experience, or they could be less than careful when it comes to your construction job otherwise.
It’s also important to make sure that you check to verify that the reviews are genuine. For one thing, you’ll want to make sure that the reviews aren’t just listed right on the construction site, because they could be doctored or written by people paid to do so.
Secondly, you’ll want to make sure that the reviews aren’t from a proxy site, that is, a site that the construction company is just using as a shell. If it’s from a respected review site, this is best. You’ll also want to make sure that some of the reviews are at least somewhat critical in a minor way, to make sure that the reviews aren’t just full of people pretending to be genuine.

The key is to make sure also that the company you’re checking has accreditation. One of the best ones to look for is the NIC EIC Approved Contractor accreditation. This is especially important because if the company you’re going with is planning on doing any kind of electrical work, this is actually required in the UK.
Anyone who is doing any kind of electrical work to help you create your loft that doesn’t have this accreditation is actually breaking the law, and this is hardly a good start to your assessment of their suitability.
Check Them Out in Person
Another good way to avoid scams or to avoid those who aren’t going to be careful is to head down to the company in person. This way you can confirm that they actually have a physical address, for one thing. You can also confirm that everything about their operation looks legit.
Additionally, talking to them in person will give you an idea for what kind of operation they’re running. You should ask yourself whether the person you talk to seems to know what they’re talking about, whether they have an adequate amount of professionalism, , and whether it sounds like they would be careful with your house and whether they actually care about how well your final product turns out overall.If you follow these guidelines you should be able to find the company right for you.
