A dormer loft conversion is an extension to the existing roof that projects vertically from a sloping roof, creating additional floor space and headroom within the building. Internally, a dormer has vertical walls and a horizontal ceiling, compared to the normal slanted slopes of a loft conversion. A dormer loft conversion will add the largest amount of space to your home.
The majority of houses that have hip roofs tend to have a reasonably small internal volume, so for a conversion to be practical, a hip to gable loft conversion is normally the most suitable solution. A hip to gable loft conversion involves changing the sloping side of your property, the 'hipped side', to a flat gable end.
A mansard loft conversion is a conversion to the rear of your property. This type of conversion has a flat roof, with the back wall sloping inwards at an angle of 72 degrees. Windows are usually housed within small dormers.
Velux loft conversions are also known as "roof light" loft conversions. Velux are the leading manufacturer of roof windows, with over 60 years experience. With this type of loft conversion the roof line remains unaltered as the Velux windows are installed flush to the roof line, leaving the structure untouched.
