Loft conversions are a fantastic way of adding valuable extra space to a property. The opportunity to turn an empty loft space into a functional room can have the effect of adding as much as 25% to the value of your property. It is an ideal solution for clients who require extra space but are reluctant to move properties.

Here are Anthony Britton Construction we are experienced in maximising space available by using innovative building techniques and designs.

There are different types of loft conversions, and the style and size will be dependent on the existing property and local planning regulations.

Our role, once appointed, will be to work with our clients to ensure all areas can be utilised and the space used effectively. We can design a loft conversion that will work for you and your requirements. We will advise on all planning requirements and design plans for your conversion. Through all stages of the project we will be on-hand to offer guidance, expertise and support.

Throughout the project, we will work closely with Building Control to ensure all aspects of the conversion conform to building regulations. Any gas or electrical installations will be covered by the required certificates.

Velux Loft Conversion

Also known as a roof window conversion, it is the most cost effective loft conversion. It can also be an attractive option where a large loft exists, as it fits into the line of the roof with little or no restructuring of the roof required.

The installation of windows provides a loft space with substantial light and transforms the space.

A roof window conversion is often completed without the need for planning permission, but will require building regulation approval.

Dormer Loft Conversion

This type of loft conversion is typically an extension of the existing roof that projects vertically from a sloping roof. It creates additional floor space and head room within the building. The dormer extension walls sit at a 90 degree angle to the floor.

An L-shaped dormer also extends out over the slim rear addition that is common on Victorian houses. It is typical that any property with a pitched roof could have a dormer loft conversion.

Mansard Loft Conversion

This type of conversion has a flat roof with 70° inwardly sloping walls and small dormer windows. A number of London houses are suitable for this type of conversion specifically within conservation areas.

A Mansard Loft Conversion is generally the most expansive loft conversion and typically covers the entire plane of your household’s roof. Therefore, they are similar to a whole storey extension rather than merely the addition of an extra room.

It must be noted though that, most mansard loft conversion will require planning permission. This is an area that we can help navigate you through.
