Types of Epping Loft Conversions

The sort of loft conversion you pick should be based on your existing roof structure, as well as how much money you want to spend and, when required, building regulations along with any other pertinent factors.

Our Epping loft conversion specialists will advise you on the different types and their separating features.

Full Rear Dormer Epping Loft Conversion

Dormer loft conversions are extensions to your existing roofs that project from a sloping roof, creating extra floor space and headroom in your property. A dormer has vertical walls and a horizontal ceiling inwards.

In addition, a rear dormer conversion is the most popular loft conversion type, as the flat room dormer often adds the maximum additional living space. A dormer loft conversion is good when the pitch angle is high since you can increase the functional living space.

A rear dormer conversion generally requires no dramatic changes. It also allows for the installation of conventional windows. Most importantly, it is suitable for most UK house styles.

Pitched Roof Dormer Epping Loft Conversion CM16

A pitched roof dormer conversion lends itself to large footprints or high-pitched roofs. It is sometimes a requirement instead of a full rear dormer, especially if you reside in a conservation area.

In addition, it makes an attractive feature. You can add various pitched roof dormers depending on your property. A dormer on the front of a property requires planning permission. However, you can add them at the rear under permitted developments in many cases.

L-Shaped Dormer Epping Loft Conversion CM16

This is a loft conversion where two dormers are built and linked with each other. One flat-roof dormer is constructed over the central part of the roof, while the other is constructed on the rear part of the roof. Subsequently, it creates a distinctive L-shape from a bird’s eye view.

As a result of their shape, L-shaped dormers are typically only suitable for Victorian and Edwardian properties where there usually is an existing back addition to the property’s rear. An L-shaped dormer is an ideal option to create more room at the top of your property. It is also the best way to extend period properties, especially if it is a mid-terrace.

Velux Epping Loft Conversion CM16

A Velux roof conversion is also known as a roof light loft conversion. Velux is a major roof window manufacturer, hence the name. Velux loft conversions are ideal for lofts where there is a sufficient amount of headroom or in case there are planning constraints.

Velux conversions are typically the cheapest and simplest to execute. The existing floor will need to be reinforced and access stairs added.

Hip-to-Gable Epping Loft Conversion CM16

This conversion type adds a considerable amount of headroom to a loft and functional floor space. Hip-to-gable requires the roof to be stripped back to the top of the hip ends. It also requires the flank wall constructed into a gable and extends the ridge to meet the gable.

Hip-to-gable also requires reconstruction of some of the front roofs. For optimum spacing, consider combining a dormer conversion with a hip-to-gable loft conversion.

Mansard Epping Loft Conversion CM16

This conversion is mainly found at the rear of a property. The roof remains flat while the back wall slopes gently inwards at a roughly 72° angle. The windows are typically housed within dormers.

This loft conversion requires planning permissions because of the large alterations to the roof shape and structure. Although they are suitable for many property types, mansard loft conversions are most popular in terraced homes.
