Loft conversions are one of the most popular forms of home improvement in the UK – and for good reason.

More Space

A professionally installed loft conversion can add a sizable amount of room to your property. Even the most modest sized loft will often provide enough space for a new bedroom and bathroom . Whether you’re planning on creating a master suite, a space for entertaining guests or even a room to let – a loft conversion is the most cost effective way to unlock the space you require.

Add value

According to Nationwide Building Society, loft conversions will on average add 21% to the value of your property – and sometimes far more. This makes the return on investment for a loft conversion better than any other form of home improvement. Financially, the loft conversion benefits are without question.

Why move?

Stamp duty, estate agents, relocation – all major and costly sources of disruption when deciding to move. One of the key loft conversion benefits is the opportunity to avoid this hassle and move up instead. Our clients often comment that the transformation to their property after converting their loft is like living in a brand new home!

Dormer Loft Conversion

This is one of the most popular types of loft conversion as it provides a good amount of head height and has the ability to add up to 50 cubic metres of extra space to your property.  The dormer is usually built out of the slope of the roof, meaning that most of the work can be carried out from scaffolding outside of your home.  This type of conversion generally does not require planning permission.

Hip to Gable Loft Conversions

A hip to gable loft conversion can be carried out on properties that have a hipped roof i.e. a sloping side. Therefore they are most popular on detached or semi-detached properties. The hipped end of the roof is therefore extended into a gable roof i.e. a vertical wall, extending the internal loft space.

L-shaped Dormer Loft Conversion

This type of loft conversion is built by connecting two dormer builds together; one on a main roof and the other on a rear roof.  The result is a much larger space, which can be used for either two bedrooms and a bathroom or one large bedroom and a bathroom, or a host of other combinations!  The choice is yours.  This type of loft conversion is particularly popular on period type properties.

Hip To Gable and Rear Dormer Loft Conversions

As the title suggests, this is a combination of the two different types of conversions, resulting in a large and airy space.  Planning permission may be required with this type of conversion.

Mansard Loft Conversions

A mansard loft conversion alters the structure of a sloping roof to a near straight slope at an angle of 72 degrees.  Windows are built into the roof as small dormers or even Juliette balconies are feasible.  The mansard conversion is usually erected to the rear of a property and is often considered one of the most aesthetically pleasing types of loft conversion.  Planning permission is usually required.
