Loft Conversions For All Houses
With house prices continuing to rise and the cost of moving home often reaching thousands of pounds, it’s no wonder that more people are opting to improve and extend their existing home.
If you don’t have the land around your home for a traditional extension, you might want to consider a loft conversion. Conversions make use of the structure that already exists above your home and, in most cases, this means that you’ll need less building work and that a conversion is often cheaper than an extension.
Here at Unique Lofts, we understand there are many different reasons why someone would want a conversion, whether it’s for an extra bedroom or dedicated office space. During the survey and quotation process, we’ll discuss your needs and requirements for your loft conversion, to ensure that you are left with your ideal space.
Wide Variety of Loft Conversion Options
There many different styles of conversions to choose from and the one that’s right for you will depend on both the floor space of your loft and your intended use of the space. We’ve provided a summary of some of the loft conversions we undertake:
These are typically the simplest type of conversion. A Velux conversion usually consists of installing skylights to open the space up and allow light in. There are a few different types of Velux windows available for your loft conversion, with some even incorporating small balconies.
Dormer loft conversions are one of the most popular choices, as they add more space to the room. This style involves taking a pitched roof and extending the roof outwards midway down the roof to add more headspace, therefore making the space more functional. Domer lofts are a particularly great option for bedrooms.
These conversions are much larger and offer plenty of space to the front and rear of your property. They are a great option for mid-terrace properties, as they can add almost an entire floor. The process of installing a Mansard loft conversion does require more construction and the pitch of the roof is changed making it much flatter to provide you with a much larger space to live in.
In a semi-detached property, gable-end conversions are ideal and can create a large bedroom suite or alternatively 2 bedrooms, making it the perfect option for a family. Their construction is similar to that of a Mansard, but instead of the roof being extended at the front or back of the property, it’s extended to the side.
