What Are The Types Of Loft Conversions Available?

The type of loft conversion that you can create depends on the type of house that you live in. The area you live in will also determine what sort of planning permission is required. You can include, bathrooms, wet rooms or stunning natural light designs and much more.

There are 4 main types of loft conversions that can be done: Dormer Loft Conversion, Hip to Gable Loft Conversion, Mansard Loft Conversion and Velux Loft Conversion. Each has advantages and disadvantages depending on which type will work best with your existing house structure.

Dormer Loft Conversion

Dormer loft conversions are a popular type of conversion in the UK, along with Velux loft conversions. They are the best way for you to expand your home at an affordable price.

The roof’s sloped side can be altered to create vertical walls and a flat roof to increase the area’s underhead height. Your new loft will make your life easier, especially if you are tall. These loft conversions are usually eligible under your permitted developments rights.

Hip-To-Gable Style Loft Conversion

Although this might seem like a complicated name, it is actually quite simple. A hip-to–gable loft conversion simply involves the raising of one roof hip to provide more space below the floor.

To increase the room height, a new vertical wall can be built from an existing gable.

Mansard Style Loft Conversion

A mansard loft is where one half the property’s roof is removed and replaced with a new roof. The other roof structure remains intact.

This method is more pleasing to the eye than a dormer addition because it fits in the existing house structure.

Mansard loft conversions will add the most value and space to your home due to the nature of the work and the extra space. You will need to submit a full application for planning permission to your Local Planning Authority due the significant restructuring they entail.

Roof Window Or Velux Loft Conversion

This is the easiest way to convert your loft. Because there is no need to modify the roof, adding roof windows is very common. The roof framework will remain as is. All you have to do is install a skylight in the roof’s liner. The Velux window acts like a skylight, allowing natural light into your attic.

What Type Of Loft Conversion Is Best Suited To My House?

Some loft conversions are not suitable for all houses. Mansard lofts can be used for detached and semi-detached homes. Velux lofts and dormer conversions work for all types of properties.

For the same reasons, hip-to–gable loft conversions can be used for semi-detached detached and end-terraced homes.
