Types of Loft Conversions

 

Introduction

Loft conversions fall into one of three basic types, which type you decide to use for your loft conversion will depend on few factors such as the design of your existing roof, your budget, planning restrictions and your own preferences.

 

 

Velux

velux loft

Velux type conversion as shown below consists of Velex windows being installed into the existing roofline. No change is made to the shape of the existing roof, therefore planning is very rarely required.

A Velux conversion is the most reasonable style of conversion for those on a smaller budget, with scope for a possible dormer conversion in the future, subject to planning approval and building regulations.

 

 

Dormer

dormer loft

A rear dormer type conversion is the most common type of Loft Conversion. Just Like a Velux conversion, Velux windows can be inserted into the front roof slope, to the rear of the property a Large dormer is added, creating a large area of flat ceiling to the inside of your new loft conversion. This conversion is most common with terrace, end of terrace and semi detached houses.

This type of conversion can house up to 2 bedrooms and a bathroom, depending on the size of the Property. To undertake this type of conversion an existing head height in the loft space must be at least 2250mm from the existing ceiling joists to the underside of the ridge beam. (the ridge beam is usually the highest point within the loft).

 

 

 

Mansard

mansard loft

Mansard is an angle of roof pitched at 72 degrees or above. This type of conversion will gain maximun usage of your Loft space and is usually undertaken by the client with a larger budget, or in an area which requires a mansard conversion.
