Types of loft conversions

Enhancing your property with a loft conversion, presents you with the challenge of knowing which is the right one for you.

Homeowners often wonder which style is best suited for a detached house or semi detached houses. You might also be uncertain if you can have one on a terraced house.

Before beginning with your loft conversion plans, it’s good to have some idea of what’s available to you.

Below you will find greater detail on the main six styles of loft conversion available. If you’re still unsure, don’t hesitate to pick up the phone or send us an email and one of our friendly experts will help you decide.

Dormer Loft Conversion Leigh On Sea

Dormer loft conversions are built in three different types: you have L-shaped dormer, full rear dormer and pitched roof dormer.

The L-shaped are a good choice if you live in a mid-terrace property in Leigh On Sea that allows for this style of build. You’ll get a lot more room as they extend the roof up and out.

A full rear dormer adds additional space by extending out from your sloping roof without overlapping the part that belongs to your next door neighbours. Full rears are brilliant because they use the entire roof space.

And lastly, the pitched dormer is normally built to align with the slope of your current roof. Because they do not drastically alter the shape or footprint of your house, they’re good if you live in a Leigh On Sea conservation area that has strict requirements when converting space or building an extension.

Hip to Gable Loft Conversion Leigh On Sea

Hipped roofs can be seen throughout Essex, particularly in quaint Leigh On Sea. They’re identifiable by how they slope towards the sides of the building and are most frequently seen on detached and semi detached houses. Although they are very aesthetically pleasing, hipped roofs can have the drawback of limiting your loft and home space.

The way Anigmar create a gable loft conversion, is by extending the roof out so that the slopes can be replaced with flat sides. A Gable conversion and the construction of a hip to gable loft will vastly increase your available space. Although, changing a roof from hip to gable can be complex and involved to the degree that planning permission will almost certainly be needed.

Bungalow Loft Conversion Leigh On Sea

People love bungalows because the lack of a second floor often means that the ground floor space itself is usually far larger than other house styles. But there’s nothing stopping you from having the best of both worlds. A bungalow with a loft conversion is an enviable prospect, giving you access to your loft and tapping into the unclaimed potential of your roof space.

It’s easy for us to add an extra bedroom to the upstairs of your bedroom, and with all that space you can even incorporate an en suite!

Velux Loft Conversion Leigh On Sea

Without doubt, velux loft conversions are some of the most popular we build and install.

They keep the pitch of your roof but invite a wealth of new light to what was a dark and dingy loft with their large, functional windows. Mostly, there is less construction involved when gaining extra space though a velux conversion meaning not only do they create bundles of extra room, they’re also really cost effective.

Mansard Loft Conversions Leigh On Sea

A mansard roof is totally unique and instantly makes an impression. They have all the elegance and refinement you would expect from something that originated in France and are even better as loft conversions.

They have an additional flat roof, and the back wall slopes inwards. This will create a sizeable chunk of new space on the roof that protrudes from your loft. They’re attractive and spacious but do come with some considerations due to the amount of construction required.

They are normally built onto the back of the property and create a new shape to your roof. This means that, in most cases, these loft conversions will need planning permission.

Will I need loft conversion planning permission?

Before we get into the nitty gritty about the different types of loft conversions and the building work required for each, we will answer the number one question anyone ever asks when considering adding more space to their home with a loft conversion. No, it’s not “how much does a loft conversion cost?”, but “will I require planning permission?”.

The simplest answer we can give is: not necessarily. In most cases, because the extension is built out of the existing roof, the project is classed as a permitted development. There are, however, some exceptions to this which are mainly applicable to larger and more complex building work such as mansard conversions and hip to gable loft conversions. Dormer loft conversions, velux loft conversions or converting the unused space of your bungalow are normally exempt from extra building regulations.
