They say that loft conversions are a great way to add value to your property, but before you go ahead with such a major investment into your home, you need to be sure that you’re doing the right thing. So, let’s take a closer look at the main reasons why a loft extension may be the perfect solution to take your home to the next level.
Why invest in a Surrey loft conversion?
What are the different types of Loft Conversion Designs?
Hip to Gable Loft Conversions
Hip to gable loft conversions aim to enlarge the relatively small existing space in properties with hipped roofs. The ridge line of the hipped roof if extended to create a gable end roof, which will generally require planning permission. The additional roof space can enable a larger rear dormer to be constructed to maximise the interior space. This type of loft extension is most popular in traditional semi-detached houses, chalets and bungalows.
Dormer Loft Conversions
Dormer loft conversions are the most common type of loft extension; the roof is reshaped, and a vertical wall is constructed from the bottom of the sloping roof, with a flat roof to give greater internal height and space. There are many variations but mostly the dormer is located on the side or rear of the roof. French windows can also be fitted for additional light and ventilation. Planning permission is still often required.
Velux Loft Conversions
Commissioning a Velux or roof light conversion means your loft is converted without any of the roof’s original shape having to be altered. Suitable for higher roofs where there is plenty of head room, this type of loft extension doesn’t usually require planning permission. Velux are the leading manufacturers of roof windows, with a wide range of roof window designs and sizes to suit all situations.
Flat Roof Loft Conversions
Flat roof conversions will require planning permission, since the existing pitched roof needs to be adapted to allow vertical windows to brighten the room and increase living space. This type of loft conversion is recommended for properties with insufficient space and where a more traditional loft conversion is impractical or impossible to carry out.
Roof Loft Conversions
If your property has insufficient standing room in the existing loft space, a loft extension that includes a ‘roof lift’ may be able to provide the extra head height. Literally ‘raising the roof’ will require planning permission as the existing roof is removed to enable ridge line and pitch adjustments to be made. This type of loft conversion is recommended for detached houses and where maximising property values is the main objective.
