    Professional Edinburgh Attic Conversions From Dovetail Contracts


"Not only do we do the construction work itself, but we also work with clients and architects to make sure visions become reality."

An attic conversion, or loft conversion if you will, is one of the best ways to make more efficient use of that extra space above your head. Loft space can be converted into an extra bedroom, play space for the kids, a home office or man cave, or even a private getaway for guests.

Dovetail Contracts build visions by creating brand-new spaces from underutilised attics. Not only do we do the construction work itself, but we also work with clients and architects to make sure visions become reality. We also assist with building regulations as well. No stone is left unturned in our effort to convert your loft space into the finished project you envision.


It is true that some attic conversions are more complicated than others. Still, we are committed to giving clients exactly what they want. Here are just a few examples:

  • Basic Room – We can take your attic space and convert it into a basic room for whatever use you desire. We can reinforce the floor, fully insulate, add windows or skylights, upgrade electrics and lighting, and more.
  • Dormer Extension – Usable floor space in your loft can be increased with a dormer extension. A new dormer will increase height for better use of floor space and, where applicable, offer more options for modifying the stairs leading up to the space.
  • Height Extensions – The mother of all conversions is the height extension. This involves actually raising the roof of your home so as to maximise the usable space across the entire loft. A height extension makes it possible to convert your loft into a full suite.

The key to a successful attic conversion is a comprehensive analysis of the space prior to any work beginning. We will work with you and your architect to determine the suitability of your space for the type of conversion you are looking for. Together, we can come up with a comprehensive plan for making your vision a reality.

Attic space does not have to be wasted space. If you would like to do more with what you have, contact Dovetail Contracts Ltd today. Let us start talking about your dreams for an attic conversion.
