Loft conversion

Types of loft conversion

Many homeowners choose to add a loft conversion to their home to expand on the number of rooms or maximise their existing living space. A loft conversion creates extra space for a bedroom, office or playroom without the bother of moving house. 

There are four main types of loft conversion:

Rooflight

A popular option that doesn’t involve structural alterations, providing there is sufficient height in the original loft space.

Dormer

There are a few different types of dormer which suit specific properties. A dormer is a popular choice as it easily creates extra height and floor space.

Mansard

A choice for bigger loft adjustments which due to the nature of the conversion shape requires structural changes to the property.

Hip to gable

An extension from the sloped roof out to the external wall.
