Types of Loft Conversion

An Add A Room loft conversion is a cost-effective way to increase the available space in your home without extending into the garden – with the added benefit of significantly enhancing its overall value. Most loft conversions do not require planning permission.

Dormer

This is our most popular conversion type as it is simply an extension to the existing roof and so is therefore suitable for lots of house types including terraced, semi-detached and detached.

Hip to Gable

This type of loft conversion is usually built when your home has three separate “hips” (standing side to the roof), which is then extended to the outside wall, where we build up the gable.

Velux Conversion

This is a great option for a smaller loft conversion where adequate height is available within the existing loft space.  This is also the simplest conversion without changing the shape of your roof.

Velux conversion

The simplest conversion without changing the shape of your roof, this is known as a Velux or roof light conversion. These can almost always be added as permitted development, because the nett volume of the loft area is not being increased.

 

Hip-to-gable

A traditional style of semi-detached property will often be constructed with a hipped roof ie. The roof slopes to the front, rear and side. The roof will be adapted and the existing side wall of the property extended up to form a new gable wall. Maximum use of space will be gained by the addition of a rear facing dormer. This type of project, subject to it’s size and any site specific factors, will generally be permitted development.

 

Dormer Conversions & Dormer Types

Dormers generally fall within permitted development if sited to the side or rear of a dwelling, front facing dormers will require planning consent, and local authority guidelines will usually encourage these to be pitched roof style, as it is considered softer to the street scene.

 

Different types of Dormers

Flat roof dormer –the most common way of creating more space with a large wide dormer, normally to the rear/side with a flat roof.

 

Gable fronted, pitched roof dormer – which are smaller sized dormers with pitched roofs.

 

Hipped roof, pitched roof dormer – which are smaller sized dormers with pitched roofs

 

Crown roofed dormer – as a flat roof dormer but more pleasing to the eye, however you do lose a little more headroom.
 

A dormer loft conversion is an extension to the existing roof, which projects vertically from a sloping roof, creating additional floor space and headroom within the building. Internally, a dormer has vertical walls and a horizontal ceiling, compared to the normal slanted sides of a loft conversion. The most common type of loft conversion is a dormer conversion, flat roof dormers are more than likely to add the maximum amount of additional space.

 

Gable fronted and hipped pitched roof dormers are the most attractive loft conversions when being viewed from the outside although they do not offer as much internal space as a large flat roof dormer.
