A well designed and well-built loft conversion can add considerable living space to any home, even flats and maisonettes. Econoloft has been established for forty years and every year over the last decade it has seen its business grow as more people than ever realise that extending into the loft is better value than moving home, particularly where property prices are at a premium such as Greater London and the Home Counties.
Sarah Beeny has now further enhanced business for Econoloft which the company has dubbed the ‘Beeny Bounce’ to reflect the increase in enquires over the last two months.
“People are now quoting Sarah Beeny or the TV programme when they ring us,” said Becke. “It has provided the catalyst for people who may have been thinking about a loft conversion to actually pick up the phone or send an email and take that extra step to find out more.”
However, Becke does have a word of warning to homeowners. “A loft conversion is a major financial decision and you need to do your homework before handing over any money. Research the companies you ask to quote and don’t be afraid to ask to talk to other satisfied customers or even see completed lofts. Ensure the builder you choose has the necessary professional affiliations such as Trustmark (http://www.trustmark.org.uk/
