TYPES OF LOFT CONVERSIONS
There are three main types of loft conversions. Which one is the most suitable for your loft conversion will depend on many factors such as the design of your existing roof, your budget, planning restrictions and your own personal needs.
Roof Light or Velux Loft Conversion
- Low cost
- No planning permission required
Velux and Roof light conversions are the same. VELUX loft conversion allows you to convert your existing loft space without changing the roofline of your house. Using the pitch of your roof, VELUX roof lights are installed between the existing rafters. This type of conversion is generally very cost-effective and does not normally need planning permission.
Dormer Loft Conversion
- Medium costs
- Planning permission is sometimes required.
A dormer is an extension to the existing roof, allowing for additional floor space and headroom within the loft conversion. Dormer conversions can be positioned on the front, side or rear of your roof and can be built in a variety of styles. Rear dormers are the most popular and can be added to most terraced and semi-detached houses, often without planning permission.
- Higher costs.
- Planning permission is always required.
A Mansard Loft Conversion is designed to change one of the sloping sides of your roof usually the one at the rear of the property a much steeper slope of 72 degrees. The front of a Mansard conversion normally slopes inwards with windows housed in small dormers in-keeping with the character of your house. This type conversion is normally applies to older terraced properties; however it is also used for flat roof properties or houses which fall within a conservation area.
