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.
