Loft Conversions

Loft conversions, also known as attic conversions, can be the perfect solution if you need more space at home to escape to for a little relaxed time.

What are the different types of loft conversions you can have in London?

There are four main types of loft conversion.

What is a dormer loft conversion?

A dormer loft conversion is an extension that is a box-like shape from the slope of the roof. They're suitable on most homes with a sloping roof. Because they are suitable for most homes, the dormer loft conversions tend to be the most popular London loft conversion.

What is a rooflight loft conversion in London?

One of the most straightforward loft conversions you can get in London is the rooflight loft conversion. You can build a rooflight loft conversion into the existing roofline, this is the reason they rarely require planning permission as there are normally no structural changes needed.

What is a mansard loft conversion in London?

If you want the daddy of loft conversions in London, the one that will give you the most space, then you will want to consider a mansard loft conversion. Mansard loft conversions are suitable for most London property types including detached, semi-detached, and terraced.

A mansard loft conversion has a horizontal almost vertical roof slope and run along the whole length of your roof. Mansard loft conversions alter the structure of your sloped roof so that it has an almost straight gradient of 72 degrees.

What is a hip-to-gable loft conversion in London?

If you have a detached or a semi-detached house with a pyramid-shaped roof that has more slopes rather than gable end walls, then you might want to consider a hip-to-gable loft conversion. A hip-to-gable loft conversion extends the sloping hip roof on the side of the property.

If your main aim is to maximise the available interior space, the best option is a hip-to-gable conversion where the hipped roof section is replaced with a standard gabled roof.
