Rear Dormer

A rear dormer conversion is the most typical type of Loft Conversion carried out. This conversion creates 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 permission 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, it creates 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.

Which type of loft conversion is right for me?

If you already have a good amount of headroom in your loft, a Velux loft conversion could be all you need to transform the space. However, to maximise the available attic space, you might consider a (rear) dormer loft conversion.

If that is still not enough space, a mansard loft conversion will essentially add a whole new storey to your house, providing greater flexibility in how you use your new loft area. A hip to gable loft conversion also provides plenty of living space, but this is only available for semi-detached houses or properties with a hip-end roof.
