Full rear dormer loft extension

Full Rear Dormer

Loft Conversion North London

A full rear dormer loft conversion is a great way to add additional room and create a spacious, versatile space for your North London home. By projecting out vertically from the sloping section of the roof, this style uses standard windows to let in natural light and fresh air.

With its box-like structure, this loft style is perfect for anyone looking for a practical and stylish space that’s easy to use.
Most importantly, it is suitable for most North London house styles.

Pitched Roof Dormer

Loft Conversion North London

The majority of hip-to-gable loft conversions are done on semi-detached houses with an existing hipped roof. The hip is extended vertically from the ridgeline to create a gable, and a rear dormer is built to the rear of the home. 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.

L-shaped dormer loft conversion

L-Shaped Dormer

Loft Conversion North London

L-Shaped loft extensions entail the construction of two dormers that connect together. The L-shaped form is generally attributed to one dormer being constructed on the rear outrigger roof and the other on the main roof, giving it an immediately recognizable L shape

The L-shaped dormer’s shape limits its usage to specific sorts of property, such as Edwardian or Victorian houses with an existing outrigger at the rear.

Roof Light (Velux)

Loft Conversion North London

A roof light loft conversion, often referred to as VELUX loft conversions since the window brand is so associated with roof windows, are turning a roof area into a loft. Other types of loft conversions involve altering the structural framework of a roof; whereas a roof light Loft Conversion attempts to make use of what exists rather than replacing it.

The cost of Velux loft conversions is also likely to be kept low since there will be no huge changes to the roof, which is another reason they are becoming more popular.

Hip to gable loft conversion

Hip-to-Gable

Loft Conversion North London

The majority of hip-to-gable loft conversions are done on semi-detached houses with an existing hipped roof. The hip is extended vertically from the ridgeline to create a gable, and a rear dormer is built to the rear of the home.

The biggest advantage of a hip-to-gable loft conversion is that it significantly increases the floor space and headroom in your house. This may provide you with an extra bedroom and en suite bathroom, making your home considerably larger.

Mansard

Loft Conversion North London

The term “Mansard” is derived from the French architect Francois Mansart (1603–1666). A mansard loft conversion is made of similar external form to the rear dormer, with a flat roof and a sloping face. The Mansard’s face is sloped by 70 degrees. Bricks are commonly used to build the sides of a Mansard, although they may also be tiled.

In comparison to a Dormer loft conversion, a Mansard has slightly reduced head height and floor area due to the face’s 70-degree slope.
