Types Of Loft Conversion

Velux

Velux and rooflight are the same conversions. This type of loft conversion is generally very cost effective and does not need planning permission.

Hip to Gable

A hip to gable loft conversion requires major changes to the roof. A gable wall is built up to the ridge point and a new section of the roof is built to fill in the gap.

Dormer

A Dormer loft conversion is an extension to the existing roof, allowing for additional floor space and headroom in the loft conversion. Internally a dormer will have a horizontal ceiling and vertical walls compared to the normal diagonal sides of a loft conversion. In attics that have limited space or head height a dormer loft conversion will provide additional space that can make a conversion easier.

Mansard

A mansard roof has two slopes, the lower slope is close to vertical at 72 degrees and the top section of the roof is almost horizontal. A mansard loft conversion makes a lot more available space within your loft.
