Home is a place everyone can
associate with and, for this reason, it is essential that loft conversions are
done sympathetically to each owners requirements, whilst protecting the amenity,
value and appearance of the property. Below is a summary of the different types
of loft conversions.
majority of dormers we are asked to construct are to the rear of the property,
almost the width of the property with a flat roof. This creates a substantial
amount of extra floor space and height. It is possible on most terraced and semi
detached properties, and allows a great choice of rooms within the loft space.
Dormers can also be constructed smaller with pitched roofs which are more
aesthetically pleasing, dormers can be constructed to the rear, front or on the
side of the property, and can accommodate windows and french doors.
This is another
construction which has a flat roof, however, the back wall slopes inward at an
angle of 72 degrees and windows or french doors are housed in small
Hip to Gable
This involves changing the sloping side of your property, the 'hipped
side', to a flat, gable end, creating a much bigger loft room and often creating
space for the staircase.
With this type of
construction the roof line is unaltered and a room is simply created in your
existing loft space.
