ROOFLIGHT LOFT CONVERSION
Installing roof light windows without making any outward changes to your roofline is the easiest and most cost-effective loft conversion for a semi-detached property. It works best when there is enough headroom throughout your loft to fully utilize all of the available floor space. Roof light conversions involve substantially less construction work than other loft conversion choices, and they typically do not require planning approval.
• You may also have them installed with rain sensors, which close the roof light automatically if rain is detected.
• You can operate roof light windows with a remote, which is ideal for rooms with high ceilings.
DORMER LOFT CONVERSION
A dormer loft conversion is an addition to your current roof. Which expands vertically from a sloping roof, providing more floor space and headroom within your loft. Dormers may be made to fit any house type and can have a flat or pitched roof. Another advantage of a dormer loft conversion is that, since new laws were established in 2008, many Local Authorities now allow dormers to be installed without the need for planning permission as long as the design adheres to criteria. This has decreased the cost and accelerated the conversion process. Dormer loft conversions are often located at the back of your home.
MANSARD LOFT CONVERSION
Building a Mansard loft conversion opens up your roof, allowing you to maximize your loft area. This form of conversion features a flat roof with an inwardly sloping rear wall. They slope at a 72-degree angle and have windows in the shape of little dormers. Because of the significant modifications in your roof shape and structure, mansard conversions nearly invariably need planning clearance. Mansard loft conversions often take more building work than other types of loft conversions, but they result in a significant increase in living space in your house.
HIP-TO-GABLE LOFT CONVERSION
The bulk of hip-roofed buildings has a relatively small interior volume. A hip-to-gable loft conversion is generally the most feasible alternative for a conversion. A hip-to-gable conversion entails converting a sloping or 'hipped' roof to a vertical gable end.
Here are some things to consider before approaching a builder or interior designer. As a general guideline, look for similar houses in your neighborhood and see what type of loft conversions they have. You could also think about:
• Roof height, pitch, and space: To convert a loft, you'll need at least 2.2m, but ideally 2.2m to 2.4m.
• Traditional rafters are often more appropriate than modern trussed roofs. Rafters imply more hollow room to deal with, however, a trussed roof will need more bracing.
• Other troublesome characteristics include chimneys, piping, and water tanks, which may pose problems during conversion.
The average cost of a Loft Conversion in Walworth is between £40,000 to £90,000. (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.
