Dormer conversions are the most common loft conversions, weather being;
Hip-to-Gable loft conversion for semi detached and detached properties
Rear dormers for terraced houses, semi & detached properties
Side dormers for semi & detached properties
Side & Rear dormers for semi & detached properties
Dormer conversions allow you to create the maximum amount of space from your loft.
If you have a large loft space or simply want an extra room and have enough head height to install a staircase without a dormer then alternatively you could choose a ‘velux’ conversion.
A ‘velux’ conversion is simply creating extra living space without any external alterations, and installing ‘velux’ windows for light to the loft room. As with all conversions they are left ready for decorating. A mansard conversion is most commonly found in inner London suburbs. An attractive alternative to the standard dormer conversions, usually created using raised parity walls with stock bricks, they are styled to blend in with existing conversions and roof styles in certain areas.
