Frequently Asked Questions
What are the requirements for an attic conversion?
Australia’s construction regulations require that the planned attic must be at least 60% taller than 2.2 meters from floor to ceiling.
You will need at least 2 meters of headroom to get up any permanent stairs.
Access to natural light and ventilation are prerequisites in addition to height. Skylights, dormer windows, or roof vents can all be used to achieve this.
AtticPlus can make recommendations to properly light and ventilate your attic conversion in Petersham.
Do I need DA approval?
Generally, no. An attic conversion in Petersham would typically not require approval from the council if the project is confined to the existing parameters of the property.
As long as the conversion does not entail an alteration of the house’s roofline, then we can avoid the costly and timely process of a Development Application.
Can I still live in my home as the project progresses?
Yes! Most of the time, the main access for the builders during an attic conversion is through the roof. This means that there is little need to disturb you and your family by going through the house.
Our installers will be in the roof space 90% of the time. We are able to complete our service with little inconvenience to your daily activities.

Is attic conversion worth the investment?
Adding an extra habitable room (or two) such as bedroom, ensuite or bathroom to your home, with a well-executed attic conversion, can add almost 20 per cent to its market value. Even more if you live inner Sydney where space is limited and property value is high. Plus, it’s easier than adding an extra storey or extension.
Can I still live in my home?
Absolutely! We are able to work in a manner that causes minimal disruption to your home. 90% of the time our installers will be in the roof space.
Attic Room projects are usually accessed through the roof via a scaffold. We don’t even need to enter your home until the project is almost completed (to install the attic ladder or fixed staircase).
Our installers all carry vacuums/drop sheets to ensure the space is left tidy at the end of each day.
Do I need DA approval?
Generally, no! For storage solutions and attic rooms, our works are confined to the existing parameters of the property and because we do not alter the roofline of the house we are able to avoid the timely and costly process of a Development Application.
How long does it take?
Basic storage is generally completed within a day or two. Dust proof storage rooms tend to take between three to five days depending on size and our Attic Rooms can take between 3-5 weeks. Every home is different, but we can usually give a good estimate on timing at the first enquiry stage.
