Approved Contractors For Loft Conversions in High Wycombe
All these options and much more besides are achievable in your loft space to help improve your quality of life without the disruption of moving home. There are various types of conversions available, including:
DORMER LOFT CONVERSIONS IN HIGH WYCOMBE
A dormer loft conversion is an extension to the existing roof that projects vertically from a sloping roof, creating additional floor space and headroom within the property. Internally, a dormer has vertical walls and a horizontal ceiling. It is the most common type of loft conversion, as the flat roof dormers often add the maximum amount of additional space. In addition, it is possible to create a gable front and a hipped roof dormer to make it look more attractive, however these types of dormers do not offer as much internal space.Additionally, due to the added complexity, a gable front and hipped roof dormer will cost more to build. The l-shaped dormer loft conversion is also very popular and is often considered the best way to extend a mid-terrace period property which are prevalent in High Wycombe to maximize space as it can give around 40m3 of space or slightly more under planning.
Advantage: Normally a dormer loft conversion can be constructed without gaining planning permission, although planning permission may be required depending on the specifications.
Mansard Loft Conversions in High Wycombe
A mansard loft conversion, named after the 17th-century French Architect Francois Mansard, is situated to the rear of the property. This type of conversion has a flat roof, with the back wall sloping inwards at an angle of 72 degrees. Windows are usually housed within small dormers.
Mansard loft conversions in High Wycombe normally require planning permissions, due to the large changes to the roof shape and structure. In addition, we specialise in l-shaped mansard loft conversions, which can really open up the space and add even more value to your property. The l-shaped mansard loft conversion works particularly well if you are converting the loft into an open-plan bedroom with en-suite.
