Rooflight & Velux Conversions
A Rooflight & Velux conversion are the same, this is when your loft conversion if formed within the existing roof space and without actually altering the profile of your roof. A Velux loft conversion is the cheapest options and works best when you have ample headroom so you can make full use of all the space available.
Velux loft conversions require considerably less construction work and are not as disruptive as other forms of conversions.
Hip to Gable & Hip End
Hip to Gable & Hip End Conversions: are for properties with a slopping side roof, which means that the side of your roof slopes inwards towards the ridge/chimney. A hip-to-gable style conversion would change the shape of the roof by extending the existing the ridge and giving you a much larger loft area. The new gable is generally built from timber and normally finished in hanging tiles to match the existing roof, a new section of roof is built to fill in the area.
Flat Roof Dormer
Flat roof dormers give the maximum amount of additional internal space; the dormer is usually of a timber structure, tile hung to match the existing aesthetics of your home. Rear Dormers are popular due to the fact that they create a large floor area and give good natural light through either large windows or even French doors. Internally a dormer will have a horizontal ceiling and vertical walls, which provide additional space that can make a conversion feasible.
Cottage Dormer loft conversions are usually situated at the front of a property. The dormer is a vertical window with a roof of its own, positioned, at least in part, within the slope of the roof incurring a lead valley at either side.
Cottage Dormers are a perfect way to achieve headroom where required and are aesthetically pleasing to the eye compared to many other type of additional headroom builds.
