Dormer Loft Conversion
At Merton Loft Conversions, we provide all different types of loft conversion services for our customers and clients within the Merton, Wimbledon Chase, Sutton, Streatham Common, Balham, Epsom, Mitcham, New Malden, Wandsworth, Surrey, Fulham, Morden, Croydon, Wimbledon and other surrounding areas. For those who wish to gain as much space possible with their loft conversion, a mansard loft conversion would be the best possible choice, as it is equivalent to an extension. A hip to gable love conversion would be more suitable for those who live on a semi-detached or detached property, especially to maximise potential space that they may already have. For those who wish to convert their loft and extend their living spaces without necessarily needing to apply for planning permission, this would be the most suitable conversion. This is more relevant if you live in areas such as Wimbledon Chase.
Why would I choose a Dormer loft conversion?
A dormer loft conversion is the most suitable conversion if you would like to add a new room within the loft of your home without adding an entire section like a mansard conversion. A dormer conversion can still be an extension in principle, but compared to the mansard conversion, it is understated. A dormer conversion for the most part is an L-shaped loft conversion, with the conversion itself branching outside of the roof. It is a useful way to add an extra amount of space within your loft while carrying out the conversion without creating a large space within the home.
A dormer loft conversion also gives you the opportunity to design and construct a room that is completely your choice without the space restrictions that a hip to gable conversion has. A dormer loft conversion would also be best for those that have a sloped roof, since you may not have the width within the loft itself. If you do not have a sloped roof, or your roof itself is flat, then you should instead consult with us about a mansard conversion, which would look better from the outside of the home and add more space without too high an increase in cost.
A dormer loft conversion can do many things for your home than you may not realise passed the additional living space for the room that you need to add. When you seek out a dormer loft conversion, for the most part you do not need to apply for permission with the council. Dormer loft conversions are classed under the Permitted Development (PD) Law of 2008. However, I would suggest that you do still contact the local authorities or council regarding a dormer loft conversion to ensure you do not run into any unnecessary issues. Another benefit of a dormer loft conversion however is the added property value that comes with the extension. With a hip to gable, you are looking at an increase in your property value automatically. Due to the extension that a dormer loft conversion provides, you can expect a much higher increase within that value!
Other Dormer Loft Conversion information
The dormer loft conversion also means that the limit is with you in terms of the room and the design. You can realistically extend the dormer as much as you’d like (especially if you want to convert your loft into a mansard instead), and you could even add a balcony with the conversion. In terms of length, you can add a large amount of space with the extension itself, and in terms of the width it really is as wide as your roof is. This is all really dependant on what you would like, but if you have plans for the conversion itself then we can work around it. If not, we are more than able to create the plans with you.
We can also assist you with the design and implementation of the loft conversion itself. Since we know that not everyone is able to communicate the vision they have for their room, and others are not able to be as creative as they may like, we are more than able to assist you with designing the room itself. Since a dormer loft conversion is not as large as a mansard, we are more than able to efficiently and relatively quickly design the room with the vision you have in mind before construction starts.
