Loft Conversions are an effective way of extending your property, your loft conversion
can be used as a much needed extra bedroom for young growing families through to
a home office to save on business overheads.
On appiontment, our surveyor will discuss with you the different types of loft conversions
available to you.
Velux type conversion as shown below consists of Velux 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.
Rear Dormer type Conversion
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.
Rear Dormer Conversions can usually be undertaken through the rights of permitted
development, this means that planning permission may not be required. Although planning
permission may not be required, all Loft Conversions should require building regulations.
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).
