Window Dormer Loft Conversion

Dormer conversions are created by making an opening in the existing roof section and adding a new ‘box like’ structure that spans the property and sits on the slope line, normally at the rear of the property with Velux windows positioned in the front. It also has an option to add French doors, Juliet balcony or terrace depending on the size. The advantage of this dormer is added extra space, head height and natural light in the loft area, because it dramatically increases the potential of the newly created space. It can be used for a new bedroom, playroom for your children or even an en suite bedroom, depending on the size of the space.

Skylight Loft Conversion

The skylight loft conversion design provides more natural light to existing loft space with minimal construction work. Installed roof lights can usually be placed on the front and rear roof slope. Such loft conversions are the simplest and most inexpensive for homeowners. The process is quicker for such type of conversions as there are not many internal and external changes.

If your property's floor plan is L-shaped, or you have access to an additional section of the roof, there’s an opportunity to create an L-shape dormer. In London it's a common style for Victorian and Edwardian houses. They are built in exactly same way as a standard dormer, but with the L-shape added to increase the internal floor plan. Internally, this particular type of dormer has straight walls and a flat roof which provides a decent head height and gives an opportunity to use the space more efficiently. It maximises the loft space and offers an option to create nice and airy bedrooms, spacious bathrooms and internal storage space.

Rear Mansard Loft Conversion

If transforming your loft space into a dormer is strictly prohibited, then usually building a mansard is the best option to follow. Mansard loft has a 70 degree angle and is accepted as roof, but not wall. This sloped roof meets with the flat roof at the ridge level and windows or doors are placed as small dormers. Therefore you can choose what to install, whether it’s French doors, skylight windows or simple dormer windows.

L-Shape Rear Mansard Loft Conversion

Same as an L-shape dormer, an L-shape mansard creates additional space on the roof and gives an opportunity to build bigger conversions. Mansards can be chosen between old and new or be added to a new building upon request. Their structure is similar to dormer’s. The only difference is that a mansard with a span through an entire width will have a flat roof.
The L-shape mansard loft conversions provide an additional space in the back of addition and are popular for mid-terraced houses.
