Types Of Loft Conversion:

Velux Conversion

This conversion type is very cost effective, as no extensive restructuring of the roof is required. This option is generally suited for those contemplating a smaller loft conversion, ideally for one bedroom.

Alongside the transformation of the loft void into a fully habitable area, Velux roof light are installed to fit flush in any gradient roof shape creates natural light and ventilation.

Velux are the leading manufacturer of roof windows and offer a wide range of products to choose from with different finishes and opening options to suit your personal needs.

As the roof structure is not extended beyond the existing roof-line, the works are normally completed under permitted development rights and will not generally require planning permission.

Dormer Conversion

This is the most common type of loft conversion and is possible on most terraced and semi detached properties where restricted space and head room is an issue. The construction process involves extending outward, in a square and rectangular shape construction from the side or back of the existing sloping roof. Internally, a dormer has a horizontal ceiling and vertical walls which maximise staircase access, allowing a greater choice of rooms within the loft area.

Dormer windows and external finishings are designed and installed to meet both client and necessary planning requirements, which fit in with the overall look of your home.

With the type of conversion the majority of construction work is conducted externally using scaffolding at the front and rear of the property - this means that disruption to the rest of your home is minimised.

Hip to Gable Conversion

Hip to Gable conversions are a great way to maximise your loft space if you are limited by a hip-ended roof line (meaning there are more than two sloping sides), this conversion is found on many end of terrace and semi detached properties.

The construction process involves the hipped section of the roof being removed, then erecting a gable wall built up usually in masonry or stud work to match the property directly off of the side flank wall to the ridge-line, alterations to the external structure and profile of the slopping side of the roof (hip end) are carried out to extend the ridge line and fill the void with a new roof section to form a gable end. This maximises the internal head height and floor space. Once the roof has been extended the conversion is normally completed with Velux windows installed in the front roof slope and a rear dormer to further increase the volume.

All loft conversions require Building Regulations approval, however the majority of loft conversions are built within the General Permitted Development Act 2008 and do not require a full planning application, subject to limits and conditions from the local council.
