Building Services in South London
With space in London at such a premium, it makes sense to use all you have available. Our loft conversions will let you make the most of your house, be it a bedroom, office, bathroom, or all of these together. An SLR loft conversion is a worthwhile investment and a must-have for anyone with an unused loft (or any other room).
Our loft conversion service starts with a free survey of your existing loft. We can abstain whether or not you will require planning permission 9Many lofts can be completed under the Permitted Development rule, up to 40 cm³ for a terraced property, 50 cm³ for a semi-detached or detached property. We can then commission drawings to your specific requirements, by our design partners.
When work starts, your loft will be built using professional, qualified tradespeople. All electrics will be installed by a NICEIC-Registered electrician. All gas work will be installed by a registered gas-safe plumber.
A building notice will be issued to the council before work starts and a building control officer will inspect all work as it proceeds, giving you peace of mind. All our work is completed to the highest industry standards, every loft is tailored to your specific needs. You can have fitted cupboards in the eaves, a fitted bath or shower room, en-suite or separate. You might also like a designer lighting system or a built-in audio/visual system. The only limits are your imagination.
If you need more lower floor space, one of our extensions may be just what you need. We can provide both single and two-story extensions, for that dream kitchen or extended family room. We look after the whole process, from foundation to decoration and completion.
An extension is almost always a wise investment. Much cheaper than moving and with no stamp duty or estate agent fees to pay, a well-constructed extension can add more value to your property than it costs to build.
Building your professionally designed extension gives you the opportunity to create that much desired open-plan modern space.

Single Ply Roofing
When it comes to flat roofing, Alwitra is simply the best, with almost 50 years of research and development behind them, they are without doubt world leaders in their field. Now in the UK for the last 30 years, they have teams of expert consultants who keep in touch with us, the installers, to ensure each and every roof completed will not only look good, but also last as it should.
Worldwide, over 150 million m² of flat roofs have been covered with Alwitra single-ply membranes (this figure increases by several million m² each year.
Alwitra Evelon membranes are a superior quality EVA membrane, suitable for all typed of flat roof. These products have been tested t European standards, and so are CE marked. Evelon membranes consist of a high-polymer alloy of ethylene vinyl acetate terpolymer (EVA) and poly-vinyl chloride (PVC), a purpose-made thermoplastic material. Both components are solids, and so remain unaltered over time.
Stage 1 in assessing a crack repair is to consult a structural engineer to survey your property. There are many possible cause of cracking to a building, so a correct diagnosis is imperative. This is why a qualified structural engineer must be consulted. Here at SLR, we work closely with a number of engineers ad can contact one with ease. When the cause of the problem has been identified, we can perform repairs using the Helifix system, strictly to the structural engineer’s detail. This will restore the structural integrity to your building, which just leaves cosmetic repairs such as replastering and redecorating. This will be completed in the quickest possible time by our in-house team of professional tradesmen.
As well as crack repairs, a common problem in aged buildings (especially in the London area) is bowed brick walls. We can use other Helifix systems, under structural engineer’s instruction, to provide extra stiffening and connect the bulging wall to the joists or roof timbers whilst causing minimal disturbance to the fabric of the building.
At SLR, we have the knowledge and capability to repair any crack, bulging brickwork or any other structural defect you may have. Please contact us for a quote.
