Truss Loft Conversion FAQ’s

A truss loft conversion is, to put it simply, the conversion of a loft with a trussed rafter roof design. Modern homes that were built after the mid-1960’s nearly all have a trussed rafter loft. This design has a huge impact on the available space within the loft, making it largely unusable for anything other than storage. A truss loft conversion sees the safe removal of these trussed rafters and replaces them with metal beams that run horizontally at floor level. We have plenty of experience when it comes to designing and carrying out these kinds of loft conversions.
There are a number of benefits to having a truss loft conversion. The first is that it will dramatically increase the amount of space that is available to you in your loft. Instead of only being able to use it as a storage area, you could use it as a home office, spare bedroom, or maybe even a hobby area. Once you have the space, the possibilities are endless. Another benefit is that a truss loft conversion will add value to your home. Professionally converted lofts are really attractive to buyers, who can move in and start using the space right away.
Most truss loft conversions are considered to be permitted development. This does not require planning permission, as long as you stick to a number of limits and conditions. Of course, there may be instances where you do need to seek planning permission – such as if you live in a listed property or have had your permitted development rights removed. Largely though, you will not have to obtain it. If you are not sure whether you need planning permission or you have any other questions about our truss loft conversions, then please get in touch with a member of our team today. We would be happy to answer your questions.

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.
