Feasibility

The first stage of a loft conversion will be a detailed inspection of the loft space noting the exact dimensions to determine if the conversion is feasible.

Indications of signs of rainwater entering the roof space will also be checked.
Any necessary roof repairs are usually carried out as part of the loft conversion process.

Types of Loft Conversion

While there are a number of loft conversion types the following two are the most common.

Roof Window Loft Conversion

Roof windows are a popular option as they don’t require any restructuring of the roof & can provide significant amounts of light in.

In addition while they do require building regulation approval, they don’t need planning permission & can be built under permitted development rights.

Roof Window Loft Conversion

Dormer Loft Conversion

These involve restructuring the roof to accommodate vertical windows. Consequently they do require building regulations.

By extending the loft space beyond the angle of the original roof they do provide additional space & headroom within the loft which can improve staircase access.

Dormer Loft Conversion

Other types

Alongside the roof window and dormer conversions described above there are various other types including 'hip to gable' and 'mansard' conversions. These are built in response to particular circumstances that require their features.
