What Are The 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 Style 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 roof’s sloped side is altered to make vertical walls, and a flat roof to increase the room’s underhead height. Your new loft will make you feel more comfortable, especially if you are tall. Most of these loft conversions will be eligible under your permissible development rights.
Hip-To-Gable 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 simply involves the raising of one roof hip to provide more space below the floor.
From the existing gable, a vertical wall is constructed. This allows for substantial room height improvements.
Mansard Style Loft Conversion
The mansard loft conversion completely replaces one half of a property’s roof, to give it an additional floor. However, the roof structure on the opposite side is preserved.
This method is more pleasing to the eye than a dormer addition because it fits in the existing house structure.
Mansard loft conversions will add the most value and space to your home due to the nature of the work and the extra space. Because of the extensive restructuring involved, they will require a full planning permission application from your Local Planning Authority.
Velux Or Roof Window Loft Conversion
This is the easiest method to convert your loft. Because roof windows don’t require roof reconstruction, they are very popular. The framework is left intact. You simply need to fit a skylight inside the roof’s membrane. As a skylight, the Velux windows will let in natural light which will greatly benefit your attic.
What Type Of Loft Conversion Is Best Suited To My House?
Some loft conversions are not suitable for all houses. Mansard lofts convert semi-detached to detached homes better, whereas dormer and velux lofts work for all types of properties.
Also, hip to-gable loft conversions suit semi-detached, detached, or end-terraced properties for the same reasons.

Loft Conversion Services Frequently Asked Questions
Where do you put stairs for a loft conversion?
Usually, the stairs to your loft conversion are best placed over the existing staircase in terms of convenience and efficient use of space. If this is not possible, a small room or part of a large room may be sacrificed to accommodate the stairs.
What lofts Cannot be converted?
As a general rule, 2.2m from floor to ceiling at its highest point is the threshold for undertaking a loft conversion. If your loft does not meet this requirement, it's highly unlikely you'll be able to raise your pitch roof, since councils very rarely grant permission to do that.
How long does a loft conversion take?
On average, loft conversions can be done in as little as 4 weeks or may take up to 8 weeks, with certain styles less complex than others. Here are the different loft conversion types, broken down by a rough time estimation: Roof light conversions – 4 weeks on average. Dormer conversions – 5 weeks on average.
Can I stay in house during loft conversion?
If you want to stay in your home during a loft conversion, we say it's perfectly possible. You just need to be realistic about the work that will be undertaken.
Can I use my loft as a bedroom?
But when it comes to being a bedroom, a converted loft room cannot be called a bedroom merely because it offers enough space to fit a bed in, or because one has been put in there: a loft needs to be converted for the purposes of being a sleeping area, and in accordance with building regulations, in order to be called a bedroom
