Types of conversions:
Conversion can be made to almost all lofts. The type of the conversion depends on the property you live in as well as the limitations of the local planning parameters. There are four popular loft conversion types. Each of them can be commonly seen across the UK. They are different but all have something in common: they make your home more spacious and valuable.
Dormer Loft Conversion
This type of loft conversion is one of the most popular. It provides a good amount of floor and head space within the newly created room. Dormer conversion entails building a vertical wall from the bottom of the sloping roof. Vertically straight walls and horizontal ceiling benefit make your room more spacious and easier to arrange. Dormer loft conversions can be used on different types of homes including a detached house, a semi-detached house, a terrace or end-of- terrace house.
Hip to Gable Loft Conversion
The main aim of a hip to gable loft conversion is to increase the small space of properties with hipped roofs. The hipped side of a roof is converted to a flat gable end. This modification creates extra living space inside the loft. The house can get the benefit of an extra bedroom, office or playroom. As this type of loft conversion requires a hip end roof it is not appropriate for mid-terrace houses. This type of loft conversion is suitable for detached and semi-detached houses, bungalows and chalets.
Mansard Loft Conversion
A mansard loft conversion is the most labour-intensive conversion due to significant amount of work needed to complete the project. Because this type of loft conversion changes the roof structure, planning permission is required. The mansard has a flat roof and a back wall that slopes inwards at 72 degrees. As a result, a tremendous advantage of this type of modification is a huge amount of additional space. Very often the newly created space is several times larger than space created with a dormer loft conversion.
Velux (Roof Light) Loft Conversion
Velux loft conversion is in almost every case the simplest and cheapest option if you want to extend your living space, due to the fact this conversion does not require changes in the original shape of the loft. This is a good solution where a room with head height is not a problem. As this type of modification requires less construction work in contrast to the dormer, hip to gable or mansard conversions, the amount of disruption is less.
