Types of Loft Conversion
Deciding on the best type of loft conversion depends on many factors such as the construction of your existing roof, planning restrictions, personal budget and your own preferences. The most common types of loft conversions are: Dormer Conversion, Eaves Loft Conversion, Hip to Gable and Flat Roof Dormer. Examples of a Dormer and Eaves Loft Conversion are shown below.
Dormer Loft Conversion – This option does not require drastic changes to the roof or planning permission, and adds a window projecting above the plane of a pitch roof. Find out more about. Dorma Lofts
Hip to Gable Conversions – In comparison to dormer windows, hip to gable attic conversions incorporate the original pitched roof into the design. Both the loft and the existing roof is extended to blend in with the rest of your roof. Find out more about Hip Roofs.
