Types of loft conversions
There are different types of loft conversions that you can have. The one which is most appropriate for your property will be determined by different factors, for example, the type of loft space you have, the structure of your property, the age of your property, the desired end project and the budget you wish to work with.
Below we have outlined the four most common types of loft conversions, so you can better understand what they are and if they are an option for you and your property.
Our specialists will be able to assist you in picking the correct one and planning for your conversion.
Dormer loft Conversion
Dormer loft conversions are the most popular option. This is because they are the most appropriate for houses with sloping roofs, while also being the most cost-effective option. A dormer loft conversion offer additional space and headroom for small lofts, by expanding the room by adding a box shaped structure to the roof, which makes it quick and easy to install.
There are four different styles of a dormer loft conversion, depending on the type of roof your property has and the style you wish to add. These include the:
- Flat roof dormer (a dormer with a flat roof)
- Gable fronted Dormer (two pitched sides)
- Hipped roof Dormer (three pitched sides)
- Shed Dormer (a roof that slopes down)
Hip-to-Gable loft Conversions
Hip-to-Gable loft conversions are the most popular option for detached and semi-detached properties with a hipped roof and prove a cost-effective option to convert, as well as expand the existing space in the property.
The Hip-to-Gable loft conversion extends the sloping sides of the properties roof outwards to create more space while replacing the slopes with vertical walls that meet at the peak.
Steel or timber frames will be installed, as well as any required cladding. As with the other types of conversions, the Hip-to-Gable option allows you to create more headspace and can be adjusted to meet your aesthetic choices.
L-Shaped loft Conversions
L-Shaped loft conversions consist of two Dormer conversions, typically a larger one built on the main roof and a smaller one that is slightly lower built at the rear, that are then are joined together to create the recognisable L-Shape.
These kinds of conversions are most popular for maximising a conversion to create larger spaces, such as an extra living space with multiple bedrooms and/or a bathroom.
L-Shaped loft conversions are ideal for Victorian or Edwardian properties that are semi-detached or mid-terrace, where there is more space to work with, due to the additional kitchen and bathroom space at the rear of the property.
Mansard Loft Conversions
A Mansard loft conversion is the ideal build for utilising the space that you already have by maximising it.
This is a common conversion option in the UK, as it is suitable for most properties but is typically found in older properties. This loft conversion usually occurs at the back of the property and is built along the roof plane to change the shape and structure. Two walls are sloped at different angles that join at their peak.
The Mansard loft conversion is a great option, especially for properties in Essex and can be tailored to fit perfectly with your project design.
Can my loft be converted?
In the majority of cases, yes, it is very possible that your loft space can be converted into your chosen design. What kind of conversion is required though may differ, depending on the type of property you have and whether additional space is required or your existing space can be used. One of Loft Conversion Experts specialists will be able to talk you through all the options that are best for your conversion and find the one that best suits your requirements and your property.
In some cases, planning permission may be required. It typically depends on the property and the type of loft conversion that is being completed, as to whether or not you need to apply for planning permission. As a rule of thumb, if there are no or little changes to the exterior, you will not need to apply for planning permission. Our specialists will be able to help you with these options when they have understood your specific requirements.
