A Dormer Loft Conversion is a broader term for the different styles that fall under it. There are more particular styles to the Dormer Loft Conversion such as the Flat Dormer and Two-Window Dormer. In general, a Dormer Loft Conversion happens when the roof is extended vertically to increase headroom and floor area. A dormer loft is a box-shaped structure with walls that are 90 degrees off the ground that has been added to a pitched roof. Work will be done from the outside scaffolding of your home; hence, this will cause minimal interruption.
Hip-to-gable loft conversions are best suited for properties with hipped roofs, which slope along the side. A hipped roof lacks usable floor area in the loft due to the fact that all of the roof's sides slope downward. A hipped roof won't have the necessary height or headroom, especially above the stairs, where a minimum of 2 meters is required to meet building codes. You can maximize the interior floor space of your loft by having a Hip to Gable Loft Conversion in your Swanley home, which will raise your head height to meet building code standards.
A Mansard Loft Conversion requires more significant changes to the house. There are two roof slopes: the lower slope angled at 72 degrees, and the upper slope which is virtually leveled. In order to build the profile of a Mansard Loft, a wall will be raised on both sides of the house. This type of Loft Conversion is the most time-consuming as it pairs well with modern building techniques and forwards innovative designs. At Loft Conversions Company, these builds will most likely take 7-8 weeks to complete.
A Velux Loft Conversion gives you additional light without having to change your roof structure. To achieve that amazing living area, Velux windows will be installed, following the slope or shape of your roof. Your angled roof will allow natural light to seep in during the day, bringing in warmth. This is a type of "internal loft conversion," which typically takes the least amount of time to complete in comparison to other Loft Conversion types. A Velux Loft Conversion is also the simplest and most affordable way to convert a loft in your home.
The L Shaped Loft Conversion gives you ample space to move and live about in your loft. However, this type of Loft Conversion is only suitable for certain homes that will mend nicely with the L Shaped loft to be built on the structure of your roof. Most period properties have a rear addition to their house, allowing it to accommodate the space that an L Shaped Loft Conversion offers. These types of Loft Conversions typically do not require planning permissions. However, circumstances may vary so it would still be best to check with your local council on what the proper policies are on planning permits and building requirements.
