What Are The Main 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. These are the most cost-effective way to increase your home’s size.

The roof’s sloped side is altered to make vertical walls, and a flat roof to increase the room’s underhead height. Your new loft will make you feel more comfortable, especially if you are tall. Most of these loft conversions will be eligible under your permissible development rights.

Hip-To-Gable Loft Conversion

This may sound complicated, but it is really not. The hip-to-gable loft conversion is simply the lifting of one hip of the roof to create more space under the ceiling.

From the existing gable, a vertical wall is constructed. This allows for substantial room height improvements.

Mansard Style Loft Conversion

The mansard loft conversion is a complete replacement of one side of the roof on a property to make it more spacious. It also preserves the roof structure on the other side.

This method of converting your loft is more aesthetic than a traditional dormer extension, as it blends into the existing 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. Because of the extensive restructuring involved, they will require a full planning permission application from your Local Planning Authority.

Velux Or Roof Window Loft Conversion

This is the easiest method to convert your loft. Roof windows are very popular as they don’t require any roof restructuring. Your roof frame will stay the same, so all you need to do is insert a skylight directly into your roof’s covering. As a skylight, the Velux windows will let in natural light which will greatly benefit your attic.

What Type Of Loft Conversion Would Be Best Suited For My Woodhouse Hill Home?

All types of loft conversions may not be suitable for every home. Mansard Loft conversions are more suitable for semi-detached and detached homes, whereas velux and dormer lofts work for all types of properties.

The same applies to hip-to-gable lofts. They are best suited for detached, semi-detached and end-terraced houses.

Loft Conversions FAQs

Do new loft conversions need joists?

You will most certainly need to strengthen loft conversion floor joists. Add in stronger and larger timber floor joists between the existing joists of the ceiling. Support them on the current walls if they are strong enough or add in extra timber if needed.

Is a small loft conversion worth it?

A loft conversion is often cited in surveys as the best way to add value to your home. Recent research carried out by the Nationwide Building Society has stated that a loft conversion could add up to 20% to the value of your home.

Is it cheaper to extend or convert the loft?

In general a loft conversion is much cheaper and more straightforward than building a brand new extension. But, the more sophisticated the loft design is, the higher the cost and level of disruption.

What is a basic loft conversion?

Generally, a basic loft conversion will consist of a staircase to access the Loft Conversion, and a single bedroom with 1 or perhaps 2 Velux windows, that's pretty much a basic loft conversion.

What is a non habitable loft conversion?

With a non-habitable loft conversion, the idea is to utilise as much of the loft space as possible for storage which will help to significantly reduce the amount of clutter that can build up around the home.
