Types of Loft Conversion
Dormer loft conversion
A dormer is a extension of the roof featured by windows, usually installed to provide more space and headroom within the loft, in addition to improved staircase access. Dormers are also popular due to the aesthetic enhancement to a property that they provide. Installation of a dormer is subject to planning permission requirements from the local authorities. It means that in some cases you don’t need to apply for planning application, only structural calculations needs to be submitted to building control.
In addition to roof window and dormer conversions, there are less common ‘hip to gable’ conversions, which can be installed when certain circumstances require their features.This type of loft conversion is very good option to increase useful area and volume of loft. Almost in all cases these conversions are subject to a planning permission.
Hip to Gable conversion
Roof window conversions are often an attractive option for homeowners due to their ability to fit into the line of the roof; thus not necessitating any restructuring of the roof itself. The installation of such windows will provide the loft space with substantial light. A roof window conversion in a lot of cases can be completed under permitted development rights and will not require planning permission, although they will always require building regulation approval – submission of structural calculations.
Velux/Roof Window conversion
Mansard conversions provide the most headspace and largest room volume of any loft conversion. The process involves opening up your roof so that the profile has 3 sides rather than 2. This gives the structure a flat (or almost flat) roof of 72-90 degrees, and a sloping front wall to create the feeling of an additional storey on your home rather than a standard loft conversion.
Dormer & Rear addition conversion
A dormer is a extension of the roof featured by windows, usually installed to provide more space and headroom within the loft, in addition to improved staircase access. Dormers are also popular due to the aesthetic enhancement to a property that they provide. Installation of a dormer is subject to planning permission requirements from the local authorities. It means that in some cases you don’t need to apply for planning application.
