Dormer Window Conversion

A Dormer window is added to the loft conversion, which then projects vertically beyond the plane of an existing roofline, planning consent is required as well as Building Regulations. It is a really good investment as the gain of extra space, natural light and the ventilation, not to mention the aesthetic look of a well-designed dormer window to the roofline all adds to the value of your property.

Hip to Gable Conversion

A hip to the gable is usually implemented if your loft space is very limited by a hip ended roofline. This is achieved by changing the sloping or hipped roof too create a vertical gable. In the end you will have a lot more loft room with significantly more usable floor space. Bear in mind that this style would require Planning consent and Building Regulations.

Velux™ Roof windows

A loft conversion that only has velux™ roof lights set into the roof is the most economical and least invasive of the types of conversion hence they are popular. Although these conversions are best for a higher loft space with headroom, a big added advantage of a Velux™ conversion is that there isn’t the need for a planning application. However this type of conversion does have its limitations.

French or Mansard Conversion Conversion

A French or Mansard also known as a curb roof is a four-sided gambrel-styled roof characterized by two slopes on each slope and with the lower slope punctured by dormer windows at a steeper angle than the other two types. This will also require Planning consent and building regulations.
