These four types include:
Dormer loft conversion is one of the most popular conversions built in London. It owes its success to the fact, that it can provide extra space to a property. It happens without necessity to expand property space outside. Of course, as always, everything depends on the type and the size of your house. Usually we can achieve up to 50 cubic meters of additional space. The only trouble with doing loft conversion is mainly having a scaffolding outside your home for some time, which can be very convenient. As that happens most of Dormers Conversions can be completed through the roof using the scaffolding without accessing the property. It minimises the noise, dust any potential damage to the hallway and most importantly, it provides the opportunity for the owner to still occupy the property while the work is been carried out until the new staircase is installed and new Loft ready to live in.
Mansard loft conversions require the most work to the property due to large scale of work needed. This leads us to the fact that this type of work usually needs planning permissions as we change the structure so much.
The mansard has a flat roof with the back sloping inwards at 72 degrees, and to the council 72 degrees are a roof not a wall.
The windows built into a loft conversions are constructed as small dormers and the parapet walls on either side of conversions are matched to existing brick work.
We provide Velux loft conversions which are the simplest of all loft conversions. They do not require any change in the external structure as most of the work is done inside. This means that you do not need planning permission. Velux loft conversion is also known as Roof light loft conversion or Skylight. You should consider this type of conversion if you would like to add natural light and change your roof into a bright open space with great ventilation.
We install many electrical Velux Windows that provide additional comfort and many of electrical Velux windows have already built-in rain sensors. If it’s going to rain your Velux window will shut automatically, without any damage to your property.
