What are the Types of Loft Conversions to Consider?

There are five main types of Loft Conversions to consider: roof light/Velux conversions, dormer conversions, hip-to-gable conversions, mansard conversions, and L-shaped.

Roof light/Velux conversions are the most common type of loft conversion in the UK.

Dormer conversions are another popular option for Tower Hamlets homeowners who want to add more space to their homes without having to undertake major construction work. These types of loft conversions involve adding a second storey onto your property by extending one or more existing roof structures.

If you have an existing hip roof then a hip-to-gable conversion could be right for you. With this type of loft conversion, your existing hip roof is extended upwards into a gable end (or gables) to create a new space within your home.

Mansard conversions offer many of the benefits of both dormer and hip-to-gable conversions but often at a lower cost than other types of loft conversion projects because they require less structural work.

What is the minimum height for a Tower Hamlets loft conversion?

The minimum height for a loft conversion is 2.2 meters, or 7 feet and 2 inches. This is the minimum height that you must have in order to fit a standard loft ladder. If you want to ensure that you can use your Tower Hamlets loft space comfortably and safely, then we recommend speaking with our architects or builders before starting any work.

Do loft conversions need planning permission?

Planning permission is needed for loft conversions in Tower Hamlets, but the process can be pretty straightforward. Before you start any work on your loft, contact your local council to ask them if they need any information from you before they can grant planning permission and get their approval. The most important thing to remember when converting a loft is that it must be done safely—and that means following all building regulations!

Do you need an architect for a loft conversion?

When considering whether you need professional help from our company with your loft conversion in Tower Hamlets, here are some things to keep in mind:

- The structural integrity of the home. If the house isn't structurally sound enough to support additional weight on top of it, you'll need our architect to ensure that your conversion is safe.

- The location of utilities and other services within the home. This might require additional permits from local authorities as well as additional fees from contractors who specialize in those types of jobs (and those types only).

Will my house foundations support a loft conversion?

First, check the house's foundation. It's possible that your home has a traditional timber frame, which means it has "floating" foundations. If this is an option for you, then yes—your house will support a loft conversion!


The materials you’ll need for your loft conversion will depend mainly on the type of loft space you have. Generally speaking, most conversions require insulation, dry-lining, fire protection, and building regulations-compliant windows and doors. If your house has floating foundations, you may also need to install joists for additional support. Depending on the size of your loft and the features you’re looking to incorporate, other materials such as rails, wood beams, and a ladder may also be required. It’s essential to speak with our builders before starting any work so that they can help you decide what materials will be necessary for your project. That way, you can ensure that all your materials are safely installed and meet the required regulations. Finally, suppose you’re considering a loft conversion in Tower Hamlets. In that case, it’s essential to reach out to your local authorities for advice on building and safety regulations and any additional permits or fees that may apply.



Party-wall agreements are legally binding documents outlining how two adjacent properties can coexist in building works. If you’re planning a loft conversion, then it’s likely that you will need to obtain this agreement from your neighbouring property owners before you begin. This agreement is essential because it will outline the terms of how any work will be conducted, including details about noise levels, access to the other property, and any compensation that may be due for damage caused. To obtain a party-wall agreement, you’ll need to speak to your local authority in Tower Hamlets for advice on where to start. In conclusion, a loft conversion can be an exciting way to maximise your living space. Still, it’s essential to ensure you have all the necessary paperwork and permissions before starting any work.


(in 2022) The most common type of Loft Conversion is the dormer as it adds the most space and best light to your property. A loft conversion will not only give you extra space but also enhance your living space on your property. A loft conversion price depends on many factors such as type of the conversion, type of the roof you have, type of the lighting you want in the loft, the type of windows required, the size of the project, fixtures and fittings, nature of the exterior, client's personal requirements and the site's location. If you want to know the exact cost of your Loft Conversion in Tower Hamlets, you will need to book a site survey or send us your drawings and our loft specialist will review them and get back to you with a quotation.
