Gain valuable extra space from your home in Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire
Loft conversions are an ideal way to get extra value from your home without extending the footprint of your property.
The majority of homes are suitable for some kind of loft conversion. In most cases adding a loft conversion to a house falls under permitted development and will not require planning permission (always check this with your local planning authority first).
There are many different types of loft conversion available. The one that suits your budget, property style and lifestyle can be discussed with our design and planning team when you arrange your initial free consultation.
Types of loft conversion
Dormer Loft Conversion
Dormer loft conversions extend vertically from the rear roof slope of the house, giving you more headroom and floor space than other types of conversion.
Dormer conversions are one of the most popular types of loft conversion undertaken in the UK.
They are generally the quickest type of conversion to complete and do not usually require planning permission, due to the minimal roof alterations.
Hip-to-Gable Loft Conversion
A hip to gable loft conversion is suited to properties with hipped roofs that would, under normal circumstances, have minimal available space. This method requires changing the hipped side of a roof to a flat gable end, creating larger internal loft space. This can increase head height and make staircase installation easier.
It is likely that planning permission would be required for this type of loft conversion as it requires roof modification.
Mansard Loft Conversion
This is a loft conversion to the rear of the property; it has a flat roof with the back wall sloping inwards at 72 degrees and includes small dormer windows along the outside wall.
Mansard conversions usually span from gable wall to gable wall, with almost vertical tiled walls.
Again, this method of loft conversion would require planning permission as there are structural changes required to the roof.
