How do I know if I can carry out eaves loft conversion on my property?

You can easily find out if your eaves loft is convertible. To do this, get a tape measure and open your latch hat if you can. Then measure the total height from the top of your existing ceiling joist, (which are the timbers you are standing on), to the underside of the right beam (which is the highest piece of timber at the top of your roof apex). If this measurement is 2.2 metres or more there is a good chance that your eaves can be converted.

Alternatively, you can also test if you can convert your eaves by standing upright in your loft at the highest point. If you can lift your arm straight up in the air without touching the ridge beams at the top of your roof, there is a good chance your eaves loft can be converted. The best method to eliminate doubt is to call one of our expert supervisors to come by and give you an unequivocal verdict on whether your eaves loft can be converted or not.
