Types Of Loft Conversion
We offer a range of different types of Loft Conversion to give you the best result. There are a range of factors to consider when choosing your Loft Conversion. Including the existing roof layout, available attic space and more.
To find out which Loft Conversion is best suited for your loft, please contact us for a free consultation.
A rear dormer conversion is the most typical Loft Conversion carried out. This conversion is a great way to create more head and floor space, by adding extra height to the back of your existing roof.
A rear dormer conversion allows you to keep a sloped roof at the front where Velux windows can be fitted to allow natural light to pour in. The rear dormer is an ideal way to create more head and floor space at the back of the attic. A Juliette style balcony with French doors is a great option here.
Mansard Loft Conversions are typically built at the rear of the house, allowing us to maximise the available space in the loft area.
Mansard Loft Conversions generally require roof alterations, therefore planning permissions is likely to be needed. This conversion creates a flat roof, and 72 degree sloping wall. Providing almost as much head height as a dormer conversion, creating more light and living room in the attic.
Hip to Gable
Hip to Gable conversions are all about making the most out of otherwise wasted space. The aim of this type of loft conversion is to create more head room which generates the space and gives the loft area more light.
Typically no planning permission is required, and the reason it’s known as Hip to Gable is because the ridge line of a hip end roof extends out to make a gable ended roof to maximise your living space.
Velux Loft Conversions are typically the most affordable loft conversion and planning permission is not usually required. Velux loft conversions make the most of the existing headroom, so no roof or house alterations are needed.
Due to the nature of this attic conversion, work can be completed quickly minimising the inconvenience of working at your home. Velux Loft Conversions help to increase the amount of natural light in the attic to make the space seem brighter and visually larger.
Why Our Customers Choose Us
Fantastic management of the project. The planning stage was painless and the build was very professional.
I believe the main build was completed in 5-6 weeks. Chris Spencer was efficient at managing the team and everything ran like clockwork, whilst communication was prompt and clear throughout and all second fixes were completed tidily. Throughout the project, a high level of attention to detail was maintained. I would strongly recommend Crown to prospective clients in the future, and especially Chris and his team.
We completed our loft conversion with Crown last year and we'd definitely recommend them!
From when we first met Tom, through to all the office team and contractors, we really appreciated how professional, friendly, honest and trustworthy they were. We love our new space they created and would definitely use them again and recommend them to friends and family.
Amazing! We were so happy with the service and quality of finish that was created with our loft conversion.
Chris was fantastic and made the whole process easy. The tradesmen that were provided were brilliant - we couldn't recommend Crown more highly.
I can't recommend Crown Developments enough. We have a fantastic new loft bedroom with library and bathroom; the finish is fantastic.
Our builders Leigh and Tom were an absolute pleasure to have on site - trustworthy and reliable. They were also really responsive when we needed to communicate out of hours and I knew when they were going to be here and what they were planning to do each day.
We've chosen Crown Development Services from a handful of companies and we're really glad we did.
From the moment the project started it was on schedule, and it's now been finished to a high standard and met our expectations. We have minimum experience with any sort of construction work, so it was great that we could fully lean on the whole team (Tom, Lina and especially the main project lead Leigh) with all our questions, ideas and concerns.
Tom and the team have been professional and responsive throughout our loft conversion journey.
From the first Zoom meeting with Tom we were sold on the family run business feeling, time taken to listen to what we wanted and professional advice. Nothing was too much trouble and we were kept up to date with each stage of the process. The build even finished early which was a big bonus. I would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting a loft conversion.
The team at Crown were great, from Tom coming out and giving us our quote to our builder John; even the scaffolders they used were great.
We are so pleased with the job they have done. The loft conversion is brilliant, our builder, John was amazing - his attention to detail was great. He really cared about his work and kept us up to date each step of the way. Would definitely recommend Crown Developments if you are looking for a loft conversion.
We have recently had our loft completed, and are so impressed with the work and space it has created.
From start to finish Chris and Calum were friendly helpful and answered any questions we had. We were told 12 weeks, but it was complete in 6, Chris works so fast - great guy. Behind the scenes Lina is great at getting things to site to avoid hold ups. Thank you Crown and in particular Chris and Calum.
We've just completed our loft conversion this summer.
We now have a new playroom and study. The girls have their new playroom! Thanks for Chris and Cullen's hard work.
Tom Wilson is very pleasant to deal with and never put us under any pressure.
He just gave us the best advice and information and left us to decide on the best course of action. He is very responsive and always on hand to answer questions when needed.
The team have been fantastic.
They were really friendly, always answering questions and doing their best to keep to schedule.
Very professional and detailed company.
Crown were a pleasure to work with and took a lot of stress away from the process. The team on site and in the office were all great communicators and extremely helpful.
