With a significant amount of inconvenience, stress and expense, making the move to a bigger property doesn’t hold the same appeal for everyone. Such moves become even more unappealing when you factor in moving out of a much-loved home and desirable neighbourhood. It’s little surprise, then, that loft conversions continue to hold their appeal with homeowners looking to increase living space within their existing property.
Based in Rainham, JHL Property specialises in all loft conversion styles for homes across Medway, Kent and the surrounding areas. As your chosen builder, we transform underused and neglected lofts into stunning new living spaces. When completed to the highest standards, loft conversions also increase the resale value of your home without the sacrifice in garden size associated with house extensions.
Our team provides an extensive range of building services, including property renovations, so we cover every aspect needed to deliver loft conversions on time and to impeccable standards – and all with the convenience of a single contractor.
We view client satisfaction as integral to the continued growth of our company. As such, we take every step necessary to ensure you have complete confidence and happiness in your project from the outset.

Our builders share more than 30 years of trade experience, so we have equal proficiency with all loft conversion designs, including:
Dormer Loft Conversions – With a simple and versatile nature, these conversions suit properties of any kind. As a result, they have become the UK’s most popular type of loft conversion. We create a structural extension that projects vertically up from the slope of the original roof. This results in a box-shaped structure which produces a room with straight walls, flat ceilings and impressive additional floor space.
Hip-to-Gable Loft Conversions – As they involve modifying the hip (sloping side) of the original roof, our builders can only construct hip-to-gable designs on semi-detached, detached or end-of-terrace homes. By straightening out the hip with a new vertical wall (gable) to the same height as the existing roof ridge, we create a significant amount of additional living space beneath the new roofing structure.
Mansard Loft Conversions – These conversions typically appear at the rear of terraced homes, but we can integrate them into other types of property too. During the building process, our builders raise the party walls, meaning these conversions require extensive construction work. Mansard conversions have flat roofs and an outer wall that slopes inward at 72 degrees.
While each of these conversion styles has their own individual merits, loft conversions as a whole come with various benefits for homeowners in Rainham, Medway, Kent and the neighbouring areas, including:
1. Home development without loss of garden space.
2. No need to leave your current home.
3. The addition of more living or working space.
4. Creation of a new natural light source.
5. The chance to create a unique new view.
6. Loft conversions increase property resale value.
