Dormer and L-shaped Dormer Loft Conversion
What makes a loft conversion a dormer conversion is the actual angle of ‘the box’. It’s basically an extension that projects vertically from an existing sloping roof. Internally, dormer conversions create additional space with vertical walls and a horizontal ceiling. It’s also a popular choice for the majority of London properties – technically any property that has a pitched roof can have a dormer loft conversion. An L-shaped dormer conversion is also a popular choice and often considered the best way to extend a mid-terrace period property. Much like a dorma conversion an L-shaped version, involves extending from the slope of a roof. With L-shaped, however, two dormers connect with the larger end built into the main roof. This large new space gives plenty of options such as a bedroom with adjoining en-suite.
Hip to Gable and L-shaped Hip to Gable Loft Conversion
Hip to gable loft conversions are another popular choice because the majority ofhouses have a regular ‘hipped’ roof that includes a sloping side. For this type ofroof, loft space is generally limited which is where hip to gable comes in. Itinvolves extending a property on the sloping side, effectively replacing the slopingroof with a vertical wall. This additional space can be used for any purpose,although most homeowners look to include an office. It will also require planningpermission due to the sloping side of the property changing to a flat gable.
