Loft Conversion Design & Planning

Transforming your wasted roof space into a new fit-for-purpose room couldn’t be easier with D&N Construction. Our knowledgeable team of tradesmen have converted many lofts into practical living spaces across Salisbury and the surrounding area. We’re able to take care of everything for you, from initial design and planning, through to project management and the final build conversion of your loft space.

It’s important to think about the purpose of your loft conversion as this will determine things like plumbing, electrics and access. Common uses for new loft rooms include:

  • Additional bedrooms
  • Master suite with an en-suite bathroom and/or dressing room
  • Play room
  • Office
  • Additional lounge area
  • Self-contained studio apartment
 

Types of Loft Conversions

Dormer Loft Conversions

A dormer loft conversion is a structural extension that projects outward from the roofline, delivering a larger footprint and better overall head height. A flat roof dormer conversion is the most popular type of dormer conversion in the UK as it is often the most cost-effective solution and usually offers a greater increase in room space as it allows for straight walls and flat ceilings. A dormer loft conversion provides a good source of natural light and ventilation, ideal for a room for almost any purpose.

Hip-to-Gable Loft Conversion

Properties across the UK often have a ‘hipped’ roof with a sloping side which can often result in limited roof space, making it challenging to convert your loft without extending your property. Hip to gable loft extensions effectively build up from the outside vertical wall (the gable) and eliminate the sloping roof by extending the top line of the roof to meet the external wall. This type of loft conversion can create the added space you require be it for a new office, playroom or snug room. If your property has two sloping roofs, a double hip to gable loft conversion can be constructed to give you even more space.

Mansard Loft Conversion

A mansard loft conversion is effectively an extension across the entire plane of your property’s roof, changing its sloping sides to almost a vertical structure where windows are typically placed within small dormers. A mansard loft conversion often requires more structural building work but will provide much more living space as the overall structure of the roof is changed.

What Do You Need to Think About?

Do I need planning approval?

A converted roof space is usually regarded as ‘permitted development.’ This means that you won’t need planning consent, but there are a few exceptions. Your loft conversion will require building regulation approval and you will need to notify neighbours if you live in a semi-detached or terraced house and the work falls within Party Wall Act requirements.

Our experienced team will be able to advise in accordance with Building Regulations to ensure you have the required structural strength, you existing roof pitch and structure are satisfactory, and implement the necessary designs for accessibility and safety.
