However, first, you should decide what type of loft conversion you want.
At West Property Management, our builders have experience in the following types of loft conversions:
Velux Loft Conversion
Also known as a Rooflight Conversion, a Velux Loft Conversion is a cost-effective loft conversion that, typically, doesn't require planning permission, which makes it one of the simplest, too. This type of loft conversion doesn't require any changes to the roof structure; instead, it's the process of making the loft space livable and installing clean-cut and contemporary Velux windows flush with the roof. In Essex, this is one of the most popular types of loft conversion, especially in semi-detached properties.
Dormer Loft Conversion
This type of loft conversion is an extension to the existing roof that protrudes from the existing slope, usually in the middle. The main benefit of a Dormer Loft Conversion is that, internally, the roof is horizontal and the walls vertical which provide more usable space. For instance, a previously all-sloped ceiling can attain enough head room for a practical bedroom. There are numerous sub-types of Dormer Loft Conversion, too, including Flat Roof, Hipped Roof, and Gable-fronted Dormer Loft Conversions.
Mansard Loft Conversion
Taking its name from French architect Francois Mansart, the Mansard Loft Conversion features two slopes and is one of the most effective loft conversions to maximise space in your loft. However, due to the length of work involved, it is also one of the most costly types of loft conversion. To get a complimentary quote, contact us.
Hip to Gable Loft Conversion
Perhaps one of the longest types of loft conversion to complete, a Hip to Gable Loft Conversion involves significant changes to the roof structure in which a gable wall is built to the ridge line and a new section of roof built to create enough useable space for practical living. If you previously thought that a loft conversion on your property wouldn't be possible, a Hip to Gable Loft Conversion could make it so. Typically, the finish to a Hip to Gable Loft Conversion will be in-keeping with your property.
