Types of Loft Conversions

There are few different types of loft conversions. Some will be more suited than others to the design of your roof structure.

Rooflight Conversion

This type of conversion is normally the most inexpensive and easiest to do. This is because the roof structure stays the same and it’s just a case off adding a few windows. Things to consider with this type of conversion are things like head height. We have to keep at least 2.0m head height at the last tread of the new staircase.

Dormer conversions

This type of conversion is normally more expensive and time consuming. This is because the main aim is to drastically change the roof structure to accommodate for the extra space gained. There are a few different types of dormers;

Gable/Hipped Dormer Conversion

They are both one of the more attractive from the outside but, offer’s a little less internal space and can cost a little more due to the extra complexity.

Flat Roof Dormer Conversion

Not the most attractive from the outside, this is why they tend to be at the rear of the property. It offers the most amount of internal space which can help turn a small property into a larger one.

Mansard Conversion

This type of conversion is normally the most expensive and hardest to do. This is because you normally have to raise party/gable walls on either side of your property. The roof structure is flat the same as the flat roof dormer, but the front section of the mansard slopes in at angle of 72 degrees. This type of conversion seems to be popular in London.

Hip to Gable Conversion

This type of conversion is more expensive and time consuming. This is because of the major change to the roof structure. It involves building up the gable wall and extending the roof structure to tie them both together. This type of conversion normally helps to accommodate head height for the new staircase.
