Rear dormer conversions are the most popular option and will provide your loft with ample space. This type of conversion builds extra room onto the slope of your roof, and is relatively simple to construct. Much of the building work will take place outside of your home on scaffolding and in the majority of cases, planning permission will not be required. When work is complete your property will benefit from lots of extra head space and abundant natural light that will enter through the windows.
This kind of construction links two dormer lofts together. The main dormer and the additional dormer will connect and this creates an L-shaped dormer. As such, this kind of conversion is only suitable for specially shaped properties such as Victorian and Edwardian homes. The L-shaped dormer will give your home even more space and provide your property with even more value.
Hip to gable conversions are typically completed on detached and semi-detached properties that feature a hipped roof – a hipped roof being a roof that has sloped sides as well as a sloped back and front. Having a hipped roof severely limits the space inside, so this conversion will replace the sloping sides with a vertical wall, or a gable. This will greatly expand the space and enable you to turn it into a regular room.
Mansard conversions will require the most construction work but will give you the most space. They involve altering the structure of your sloped rood so that the sides are almost straight. Windows will be built into the roof as small dormers and are often big enough to accommodate two bedrooms as well as a bathroom. The size of these conversions means that planning permission is often required.
If there is enough space to walk around in your loft, then you may not need any substantial construction work. Fitting a Velux light system will give you the natural light your room requires and all that you will need is some relatively simple refurbishment work.
