Velux Conversions

A Velux Conversion, allows you to have to create a room in your loft space without requiring additional planning permission as the roof line will not be altered.

Rear Dormer

A rear dormer is a common method of loft conversion. This style of loft conversion can give you a large amount of floor space and height as well as tailoring the design to your needs and wishes. This type of conversion can also often be done without the need for planning permission.

Side Dormer

If you have a semi-detached house and it has a hip to sloping side roof you could have a side dormer installed. If you feel this is for you we can discuss with you some suitable design choices for it to help it to suit your home.

Hip-to-Gable

A Hip-to-Gable style conversion can be a great option. It will involve changing the sloping side of your property and can be a good alternative to a side dormer as it can create more space for the area.

Mansard Roofs

Mansard Roofs will alter the roof angle of your home to 70 degrees. This will create a vast amount of space for you to work with. The exterior finish for the Mansard Roof will be matched to your existing roof. This type of conversion is a good option if there are particular planning permission required for your property or if you are in certain conservation areas.
