What is Dormer Loft Conversion

Dormer loft conversion is actually one of the most popular conversion types in London. Since it is a simple structure to build, it is practical for homeowners. It takes lesser time to finish the project, and of course, they can save much more than complex loft conversion types.

Basically, a dormer is a vertical extension from a sloping roof’s plane. This is constructed on the roof of the attic so the area can be converted into a usable space. Aside from the additional headroom created, dormer windows are also attached which allow natural light to get into the new room. This is another advantage since it can help save energy.

Dormer Loft Conversion Types:

There are different kinds of dormer that you can choose from. These are the following:

  • Simple flat roof dormer- this one is the cheapest and simplest kind of dormer to construct. However, it creates the biggest additional space inside.
  • Shed dormer- this involves one flat planed roof that slopes down at a shallower angle than the main roof. This is usually chosen for houses with a gable roof.
  • Gable fronted dormer- if you are for aesthetics, then this one will please your eyes. This has a gable wall extension which reaches to the ridge line. A new roof is created outwards to the end of the gable.
  • Hipped roof dormer- this is the most attractive of all. It involves three slanting planes that meet at the dormer’s ridge.

Do you think one of these would be perfect for your attic?

Create Your Loft Space

Loft is not just a simple area that builders do just to add more space in the house. It helps in insulation by restricting heat to go outside the room below. With that, heat loss is reduced, thus reducing energy bills too.

We believe that in building lofts, floors, certain doors, and walls should be designed to resist effects of fire and pressure. This will provide safety to the family and other occupants from fire and other types of emergencies. For this reason, we construct and design lofts according to this need.
