Dormers extension added to the rear or side of your existing roof slopes is one of the most common loft conversions
Hip to gable conversions are generally carried out on semi detached & end of terrace properties, where the roof slopes in on one side, this hip end roof as it’s called is extended to a gable end creating the necessary extra space required, we also normally add a rear dormer extension too
L-shaped dormers are an extremely common conversion maximising the space available to convert they can have space for 2 new bedrooms and a shower/bathroom, the main loft is extended to the rear and also the rear addition roof if you have one
Mansards conversions have a slope of 70 degrees to the extension, giving a traditional look to the project, which is very much in keeping with some local council planning permission requirements.
We can replace your old roof if required an add the velux roof windows.
Velux windows conversions are projects where we add roof windows only with no roof extensions.
Roof terraces are often added to flats & maisonettes for that missing outside space, depending on the local councils planning permission allowances.
The usual arrangement is for you to choose your shower/bathroom sanitary ware, which are installed by our plumbers as part of our service. We can provide a tiling service too, completing the job
Access to the new loft rooms will be via a new traditionally made staircase, normally positioned over the existing staircase in the hallway.
The new stairs will be fitted with handrail, newel post and spindles, which will complement the character of your home’s existing flight of stairs.
Often a skylight is installed above the new stairs in the hallway with great results bring plenty of natural light into this area
