What Are The Main Types Of Loft Conversions Available?
The type of loft conversion that you can create depends on the type of house that you live in. The area you live in will also determine what sort of planning permission is required. You can include, bathrooms, wet rooms or stunning natural light designs and much more.
There are 4 main types of loft conversions that can be done: Dormer Loft Conversion, Hip to Gable Loft Conversion, Mansard Loft Conversion and Velux Loft Conversion. Each has advantages and disadvantages depending on which type will work best with your existing house structure.
Dormer Loft Conversion
Dormer loft conversions rank alongside Velux loft conversions as one of the most sought-after types of conversions in Britain. They are the best way for you to expand your home at an affordable price.
The sloped roof side is modified to create vertical walls. A flat roof is added to expand the room’s floor height. Your new loft will make you feel more comfortable, especially if you are tall. These loft conversions are usually eligible under your permitted developments rights.
Hip-To-Gable Style Loft Conversion
Although it might sound strange, this type of conversion is actually much simpler than you may think. A hip to gable loft conversion consists of raising one portion of the roof’s hip so that the room has more space underneath.
From the existing gable, a vertical wall is constructed. This allows for substantial room height improvements.
Mansard Style Loft Conversion
Mansard loft conversions completely replace one half of a property’s roof, while keeping the other half’s roof structure.
This conversion is much more beautiful than a dormer extensions because it seamlessly fits into the existing structure of your house.
Mansard loft conversions add the greatest value to your house because of the extent of the work involved and the added space. They require full planning permission applications to your Local Planning Authority, due to the extensive restructuring they entail.
Roof Window Or Velux Loft Conversion
This is the most straightforward way to convert your loft. Because they do not require any roofing changes, roof windows are extremely popular. Your roof frame will stay the same, so all you need to do is insert a skylight directly into your roof’s covering. The Velux window acts like a skylight, allowing natural light into your attic.
Which Loft Conversion Is Best For My Home?
