Loft Conversions Direct explain the loft conversion styles we work to when we undertake projects in the Bexleyheath area. There are essentially three main types of converted lofts, all of which are commonly found in homes across the UK. All are slightly different but each one is aimed at giving you and your family extra living space.
Dormer – This type of loft conversion will involve constructing a vertical wall from the bottom of the sloping roof. A flat roof is built to meet the upright wall in order to give maximum headroom in the loft. The Dormer is the most common type of loft conversion and planning permission from the local authority for Bexleyheath is rarely needed.
Hip to Gable – Hip to Gable lofts increase smaller existing spaces within properties that have hipped roofs. The slope or hipped side of a roof is changed to a flat gable end. Planning permission may be needed for these loft conversions.
The extra space provided can be used for a variety of purposes. This type of conversion is suitable for lofts in detached, semi-detached and bungalow properties in Bexleyheath.
Mansard – This type of loft conversion is typically constructed at the rear of the property. The design has a flat roof and a back wall that slopes inwards. Mansard is at the top of the chain in loft conversions. They tend to be the most expensive and involve more construction work. They are common in urban areas and among terraced houses in Bexleyheath.
Please be aware that Mansard lofts will often require planning permission.
