Types of Loft Conversion

Dormer Loft Conversions Lancashire

Dormer loft conversions in Lancashire are an extension to the existing roof typically situated at the rear of the property. The extension projects vertically from the sloping roof, creating additional floor space and headroom within the loft area. Internally, a dormer usually has a flat (horizontal) ceiling.

This loft conversion type can typically add one generously sized double bedroom or two smaller single bedrooms and one bathroom.

L Shaped Dormer Loft Conversions Lancashire

Similar to the traditional Dormer type loft conversion, an L- Shaped Dormer is usually built at the rear of the property to create additional floor space and headroom within the loft area. However, in this instance, there are 2 dormer extensions that are connected together to provide considerably more space than any other conversion.

Because of their shape, an L-shaped Dormer conversions in Lancashire are usually only suitable for Victorian and Edwardian London homes where the kitchen and/or bathroom are situated at the rear of the house.

Hip to Gable Loft Conversions Lancashire

This type of loft conversion is essentially an extension to the side of your roof area. The front and rear elevations are extended, and the side roof elevation is removed and replaced with a vertical gable end. This type of conversion is often incorporated with a traditional dormer.

Mansard Loft Conversions Lancashire

The Mansard type of loft conversion in Lancashire often gives the biggest results in terms of providing additional square footage, however, because of this, it’s also the most expensive.

Mansard loft conversions in Lancashire are typically constructed to the rear of the property, although it’s not uncommon to see Mansard extensions to the front. This type of conversion alters the structure of your sloped roof so that it has almost a gradient of 72 degrees. Windows and balconies are built into the roof structure as small dormers providing a little extra head height when standing by the window and enjoying the view.

Velux Loft Conversions Lancashire

A Velux loft conversion the simplest and quickest loft conversion of them all. As the roof structure remains unchanged externally, this also means the construction costs are considerably lower. Although a Velux conversion does legally convert your loft space into a room; this will most likely be limited to one bedroom, and headspace will be impacted by the shape of any existing (sloping) walls. However, using this type of loft conversion may be your only viable option if planning regulations prevent you from building any of the other types.
